The story behind Wrack
World peace at last.
In the year 2037, scientists at Prometheus Technologies, Inc. developed a device allowing for the creation of matter out of pure energy. This Hyperion Generator could turn energy into any form of matter, including food, clean water, and building materials.
Because anyone could cheaply generate anything of necessity, international power struggles came to an end, poverty was eradicated, and peace ensued.
But all good things must come to an end.
Thirteen years later, beings from the star system Arcturus have been at war with another alien civilization for decades. Having depleted nearly all of their home planet's resources, they send out reconnaissance ships to find ways to replenish their war machine. One of those ships discovers a device that could provide the Arcturans with an endless supply of resources... the Hyperion Generator!
Now, with the Hyperion Generator in their sights as the means to their salvation, they prepare to do what they do best... strike! Pacified and defenseless, Earth is now helpless against such an assault. Standing to be almost certainly wiped out after losing the generator, Earth is doomed.
... or is it?
You are Kain Sager. A vigilante who's stayed prepared for such a situation, you've not gone soft in these prosperous times. Taking matters into your own hands, you now stand as Earth's last hope. Good luck, Kain! The fate of mankind rests on your shoulders.
