BACKSTORY
A massive environmental catastrophe known only as the Big Rain has caused a dramatic rise in the global sea-level, transforming Manhattan into an incredible archipelago of flooded street-canyons and skyscraper islands. The city has been divided into different territories, each controlled by warring scavenger tribes atop the highest buildings. This savage world is known as Uptown. Far below is Downtown, an even more dark and dangerous maze of swamps and street-canyons inhabited by cannibal tribes and carnivorous mutants.
