It is the distant future. The Sol Federation is a central, slowly expanding empire, spreading forth from the Earth. Out in the far reaches, frontier worlds have banded together to form their own pocket empires, desiring independance and living harsh frontier lives on desolate worlds.

In the early years, the Sol Federation provided food and material support to frontier realms, but that has changed. Now they will only offer support if such realms join the Federation. Rather than give up their independance, many frontiersman have become pirate raiders, entering the borders of Federation space to steal supplies from outposts and borderworlds.

On the planet Mesarius V, the Armed Forces of the Sol Federation (AFSF) keep constant vigil against raiding forces. As the pilot of a Mechanised Assault Unit (M.A.U.), a twenty ton walking war machine, you are one of the defenders of Mesarius V. It is your duty to engage raiders who land on the planet surface, and to help drive them back to the frontiers empty handed.

However, a threat of a different nature is approaching your world, and for a change, it may be more than you, and the entire armed forces of Mesarius V, can handle...

(This is possibly an 'introduction story' for a series, depending on how much people like it.)

Player Comments

Not a bad read, well paced and thought out if a little bit "over-descriptive" at times, Still enjoyable overall. Looking forward to something that'll tie up that cliffhanger though.

Whoa, I request a sequel! That was great writing as always and although I'm not too fond of science fiction, this was a story I enjoyed. Great work!

So, I just finished the game, really cool plot and stuff. Got the ending where I'm not really sure what happens, but we survive. I liked that there's a bit of mystery with what happens to the planet in the ending I got.

Not bad, except it is boring that there are no battle scenes like selecting weapons and blasting them! ;D

Pretty good. Got what I think is the best ending on my first try. Pretty good story and plot.

I loved it! It was pretty good, although you should make a sequel (if you haven't done that yet).

Amazing story. Could use a bit more depth, but waiting for a sequel.
