The year is 2084 and humanity is dying. Fourteen years have passed since humanity's homeworld, Earth, simply vanished from space. Now, the remaining survivors are fighting over what resources are left and mankind is facing extinction.

Three factions vie for control of the solar system, the Martian-based Islamic Federation, which possesses a monopoly on all food production, the Corporate Dominion far in the Jovian moons and the Socialist Star Republic, right between them, in the asteroid belt.

After a nuclear weapon is detonated in a Martian colony and the Federation threatens with an embargo on food supplies, mercenaries are hired to investigate the truth of what happened and more importantly, find out who possesses nuclear arsenals.

However, things are not always what they seem to be and this journey will lead them to a better understanding of mankind's role in the universe and a shocking discovery about humanity's true history and ultimate destiny.

No. They are, essentially, what happens when you have an army without a country, or civilian population.

More or less. The SSR consists of the US and Russian space fleets (US and Russia were allies in World War 3). When Earth disappeared, all these soldiers were left with one massive fleet and no country to defend, or civilian government to control them. What followed was martial law, which eventually set itself in and you can imagine what followed next.

This is a very interesting concept. Will the game fit more than a genre?

Judging from the description, it appears to have open word, space simulation, strategy and, probably, some rpg features, but I'm not sure.

Not that it's an issue but what made you choose the faction name "Islamic Federation"?

The reasons are numerous. Mainly because the focus of this game's story lies in cultural differences and understanding different societies. Also, we wanted to portray factions not typically portrayed in gaming and entertainment, or portrayed in a different way from the norm.

The story of this game goes beyond the standard "stop the bad guys from taking over the world" trope, which is so overused nowadays. We focus on more philosophical issues and the complexities of politics, culture and religion.

I can't reveal more at this point, but we have several major plot twists planned and I promise that in the coming weeks, more details about the game's story and setting will be revealed.
