Project Description

Able Squad, an elite group of Marine specialists, fight to keep the fracturing solar system together, but humanity finds itself betrayed during its greatest crisis.

In the future humanity has colonized the inner planets of our solar system in search of new opportunities and exotic resources, creating a golden age of prosperity. Joining together as the United Homeworlds, the human race now sets it’s gaze to the outer planets for rapid expansion. However, former colonists and prisoners sent to mine the moons of Saturn long ago have banded together into a secessionist group called the United Clans of Saturn. Now labeled pirates they hope to hold onto their ancestral homes and keep the United Homeworlds from taking what their forbearers claimed generations ago.

As a result, humanity creates genetically engineering beings called “Neosapiens” to tame these rich, but dangerous worlds of profit. Being bought and sold as mere instruments of production, the super human Neosapiens are veritable slaves.

After decades of degrading oppression, the Neosapiens rose up in a gruesome guerilla war to throw off their shackles, but were narrowly beaten back. With a large outcry of public support, the Neosapiens were able to gain some autonomy over their collective destiny but they are still regarded as second class citizens and viewed as provocateurs.

As tensions once again rise between the United Homeworlds and the United Clans of Saturn, war looms on the horizon, but humanity finds itself betrayed during its greatest crisis.
