survival is the only option

It is the year 2195.  Close your eyes for a minute and imagine a broken world.  Technologies beyond your wildest imaginations and creatures from your darkest nightmares.  Envision a human race forced to retreat into cities in order to save itself from its own monstrous creations.  Bio-engineering and chemical experimentation have brought out the dark side of creations, and now the created threaten to extinguish those that created them.  Cyberspace is a sprawling digital universe.  But the matrix holds no refuge anymore because the creatures of realspace have adapted to the technology of the modern world, and now, even some of them are known to roam the virtual realm.  Humanity has twisted and clawed for salvation in these dim times, merging with technology in order to adapt and grow.  But the embracing of technology does not come without its price.  For some, the union is too overwhelming, and humanity tends to get lost in the confusion.  The world is a frightening place, where the powerful rule, and the innocent stumble and are crushed.  Survival is the only option.  But it's not a very easy one.

The future is here.  Hold on.
