Neo Paris, France. The year is 2047. A time of technological revolution. The revolution did happen. Just not the way people thought it would. It wasn’t an improved control on our environment; it was on the contrary an escape from it. All this had started with videogames only, with persistent worlds in which players were experiencing adventures through their avatars. But technology progressed enough, the players didn’t have any reason anymore to stick to reality. Better sensations, more freedom, less frustration, the possibility to fulfill fantasies… Very quickly the population divided between a big majority, the Connected, always online, and a minority still attached to the real, called the Living. Some never really made a clear choice. They are the Hybrids.
Nash is a Hybrid. He is also a killer, working for one of he world corporations behind several of the most important virtual worlds. His mission is to track, identify and kill terrorists who threaten these worlds by killing players randomly, from inside the games. Nash’s girlfriend was among the victims. Now his investigation leads him from inside Neo Paris slums to the opulent Neo District, but also from inside several worlds.
While he finally succeeds in infiltrating one of the terrorist cells, he then finds himself in the middle of a dangerous game between his employer, Interpol, which decides to solve the problem directly, and these terrorists with noble goals but questionable means…
The revolution did happen. Just not the way people thought it would…
