This game is an attempt to subvert the usually serious and gritty post Apocalypse genre by playing on the trope used in popular TV shows that introduces characters with no backstory and then reveals sudden and sometimes disturbing information about them by other character’s discoveries about that character.

(“Hey, you’re that guy! I recognize you from that news report, you killed that senator!” or “I saw the picture in your wallet with you and the two kids that said ‘my two lovely kids’ in pen on the back. How come you didn’t tell anyone the two kids in the group are YOUR kids?”)

These reveals usually change your entire perception of that character; it can sometimes make the character seem more just as a person with flaws like we all have, but ofttimes can turn your favorite hero into a despicable scumbag.
