FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – March 31st, Prague, Czechia.


Meet Max – a 25-year-old guy who spent the last eight years of his life in the underground laboratories of Triagon. During that time, Triagon tried to cure Max’s “sickness” – incredibly dangerous bursts of strange energy that are potentially fatal if not controlled properly. Triagon’s scientists tried to suppress Max’s sickness in various ways without success. Their only success was finding a way to control the energy bursts through a special cage via which Max’s sickness can be triggered and safely directed into containers. The problem with this solution is that while it protects others from unintentional harm, it renders Max dependent on Triagon indefinitely and without any chance for escape, a cure, or an end to his isolation from the rest of humanity.

Now, continuing Max’s story. Just as he has begun to accept that this is how it will be for the rest of his life, everything changes with the appearance of Thomas Jetsen. He informs Max that the Triagon Facility Leader has been kidnapped by strange, bug-like creatures from outer space. What’s even more peculiar is that the measured energy signature of the alien bugs is apparently identical to Max’s.


This is where Max’s story begins. He will now go on a quest to save the Triagon leader, find a way to get rid of the space insects, and, most importantly, understand the nature of his unique skills. For years, this weird energy considered a curse now seems to be a blessing that could save humanity from an unknown threat.
