So called WRECKERS are the new influencer super brands, and sell death and vulgarity to the masses, who have nothing else to do but watch Wreckers kill not only the mechs infesting SECTOR-K (or KILLTOPIA, as the locals call it) but also each other during WRECKFEST, Neo-Tokyo's annual battle royale tournament.
It's a dialed-up-to-eleven version of our own f'd up world, where people are glued to their devices with super-shortened attention spans - and where a selfie with a Wrecker is worth more than your health.
Enter SHINJI - a hacker with a punk attitude - who builds himself Wrecker gear and heads into the Killtopia zone, without a permit or training, to hunt rogue mechs & sell the scraps, all so he can make enough money to pay for his sister OMI's Rot medicine. Unfortunately for Shinji, on his first hunt, he saves the life of the world's first sentient mech, CRASH, who is wanted by powerful forces, including STILETTO, the world's #1 Wrecker and reigning Wreckfest champ.
This sets the story in motion and soon Shinji, Omi, and Crash have to go up against Yakuza thugs, android assassins, and a very motivated Stiletto.
Shinji wants to save his sister. Crash wants to be more than a machine. Omi wants to plug in and play. Stiletto wants to believe...in something.
They all want to make it out alive.
