About The Game
Before last year, no one heard of the city of Burning Forest. Hell, no one could have been bothered to figure out where it was on the map. But after Wildfire Industries announced that they had created a machine that could literally make anything you could imagine, the moving trucks couldn’t be loaded fast enough.
Now it’s 2016 and only five corporations in the world possess the groundbreaking DREAM technology. The household company names of yesteryear have been crushed under the production power of Wildfire Industries, The Rainman Group, Infinity Corporation, Green Dragon International, and Industrialized Industrial. Even Burning Forest has changed from a formerly sleepy city into a bustling metropolis that has become the headquarters for all five megacorporations.
But underneath the golden public image lies a very different reality.
The five corporations play dangerous games with one another daily. Burning Forest is full of sabotage, espionage, two-faced accounting, lawsuits, politics, bribes, broken promises, cover-ups, and assassinations, all powered by DREAM technology. The laws of friendly competition have been utterly destroyed. You haven’t seen underhanded tactics until you’ve seen a director’s head explode during a meeting.
The risks of business have never been higher. Shareholders demand that your profits only rise and never falter, DREAM technology isn’t cheap to maintain or run, and all of your competitors are right next door and ready to do anything steal your piece of the market.
That’s where you come in. You’re a special executive. You’re given full access to DREAM technology to create whatever you think you need to both defend your company and keep it one step ahead of your competitors. Succeed in your tasks and you’ll get paid beyond imagination. Fail and… well… let’s just say you don’t want to have a bad day at work.
