where selfishness, rivalry, and corruption by its citizens seems to
be all too common, those who can afford it live underground, away
from the pollution and social problems which are plaguing the city.
You take on the role of Robert Foster, an outcast of sorts
from the city since a boy who was raised in a remote environment
outside of Union City simply termed "the gap". Robert's mother took him
away from Union City as a child on their way to "Hobart" but the
helicopter crashed on its way, unfortunately Robert's mother dies, but
he survives and is left to be raised by a local tribe from the gap.
Years later, Union City security drops by and abducts Robert,
killing his tribe in the process; upon reaching the city the helicopter
taking him there crashes with him escaping, high upon a tower block in
