Earthrise: First Impact is a sandbox MMORPG shooter with an innovative player development system. In a distant future clones, nanotechnology and quantum mechanics are all part of a new reality.
Large corporations control the last place where mankind can survive. But a far greater danger is lurking apart from a lack of resources, crime and conflicts of interest: animal and plant mutation. The player is free to choose his role within the cooperative teamplay system and can use the sandbox game mechanics to shape his own destiny.
The player’s actions influence the world of Earthrise, whether as a soldier in a terrible conflict, a criminal on the run from the law or a world renowned engineer, whose power extends far into the world of economics and politics.
In 2046 the Earth was struck by a meteor shower that crashed down out of the night and the sky was ablaze for hours before it grew dark again. The Earth was enveloped in an icy mist of dust, and many earthquakes left hardly a stone standing; what should have taken millennia happened in a single day and changed the face of the Earth for ever.
A noxious atmosphere slowly developed that claimed the lives of the majority of the population; only those who managed to find a place of safety under the earth away from the constant earthquakes survived. It was some time before the dark sky became light again and the first rays of sun were felt on the ground and mankind emerged from the ruins of the former civilization to rebuild it.
During reconstruction, a new type of crystal was discovered where a meteorite had struck and entirely new organisms and life forms appeared to be thriving in the environment. The survivors soon learned that the crystal had some intriguing properties and could be used to produce energy and other materials. A whole industry built up around the crystal, which soon became the principle resource and people disregarded the highly toxic and harmful effects resulting from exposure to it. The crystal converted oxygen, vital for the existence of humans and animals, into a poisonous, unknown substance that caused living beings to mutate.
It is now 263 years after the catastrophe, and almost all humans are infertile and a cloning station on the Moon has been built far away from the crystals to ensure the survival of humankind. Many have already lost their lives and many others will surely follow; thousands of stories have been told of how it all started, and your story is just about to begin...
