From the Publisher website:
You play Rusty, the first human born in the Void, who must take on the Watchers in a quest to stop their domination of Earth. With the aid of Nikola Tesla, and his state-of-the-art rocket pack, Rusty must take down the Watchers and their minions across three intense levels of action and intrigue.
Many years ago the great scientist Nikola Tesla became trapped in the Void, a hostile place between our world and the world of the Watchers. For years Tesla and the band of Void-born humans known as the Survivors have battled against the evil Watchers as they attempted to create a stable portal that would enable them to finally conquer humanity.
You play the role of Rusty, warrior test-pilot and Tesla’s trusted friend. It is Tesla’s belief that where armies have failed, maybe one man, armed with Tesla’s technology, can succeed.
The fate of the human race rests in your hands
