In 2194 humanity has populated the entire galaxy. As our existence expanded, crime became harder and harder to control in the vast reaches of space. As a result, laws became more strict. Government attempts to wrangle the issue bolstered a growing police force and, over many years, the reach of law enforcement grew larger and more aggressive. The general population, simply wanting to feel safe, grew more accepting and the first fully commercially run prison systems took form.

Nearly one hundred years later, in 2290 imprisonment is common place. A blind trust has been placed in the commercial justice system eventually landing every day people in jail for years for even the smallest offenses creating a massive divide between the idea of prisoner and person. Hundreds of commercial prisons and law enforcement companies thrive.

Devaluing of prisoner lives and massive prison overpopulation gave birth to an auction system where anyone could purchase prisoners for any use free of legal ramifications.

Acquired in the most recent bulk order of prisoners for BioMass Labs, you are being shuttled off for study at the Kohate testing facilities. No information is known about the details of the study.

You have been black-bagged, loaded onto a transport shuttle, and are waiting for law enforcement to release you to the company.

I hope that in the full release, the monster won't get stuck or anything.

Been working with DSD for a long time now, and I must say the game and himself is #TopNotch! Definitely worth checking out both.

Came along your "nr 4 i think" video and it made me laugh.
About your game, level design is great. Monster is,....(sorry)...awefull. Looks like it is pulled out of putty ( i believe the right word for it is, am not English but Dutch). All in all, thought, like this guys approach so i will follow him. Much luck with your game my friend!

Thank you! Sorry to hear your view of the monster but that's alright! Thank you for the thoughts. There is a story reason for the appearance so he is the way he is at this point. Thank you for the well wishes and stopping by! Means a great deal to me.
