As a game show contestant, you must ward off never-ending attacks from merciless bounty hunters in the ruins of the city and survive the rough conditions of a devastated wasteland. You'll work hard to upgrade skills like gun handling and melee fighting, but you're not all brawn. You'll also have to upgrade your engineering skills and to ensure survival, find clean water and cure diseases.
Last but not least, you must win over the game show audience and become its star. You made it! Or, did you? Never forget that permadeath is always close at hand.
