On the cusp of divulging in biotechnologies, we've discovered a pathway to biotopian sustainability. We are not only evolving our surroundings through our own means, we are evolving ourselves into another superior species. The world of tomorrow is dictated by the eco-conscious post-human.

SYNOPSIS


In a hi-tech world entering biotopia, transhumanity sees the chance for naturalising bionics through one girl and her creator- but is soon interrupted when their sponsors use her post-human abilities to restore toxic old London.
