Chapter 1: Rift Energy

   The Daicoo system, a solar system far away from any other that consists of 5 planets orbiting a bright and young sun.

There are two inhabited planets that orbit as the second and third planet from the sun. These two are called Marcavo which is the second planet and Klorathi, the third planet.

Marcavo is a green world with vast oceans connecting the continents. On the surface it is very flat grasslands and woods, and it does not have many large mountains or mountain chains.

   Klorathi on the other hand is a deep jungle with massive mountain chains and fantastic peaks with waterfalls. It is covered mostly by jungles and not as much water.

Both of these planets are highly technologically advanced with fantastic cities and space travel capabilities.

   The smallest planet orbits closest to the sun, and the fourth and fifth planets are much further out. 

   War, once ravaged the Daicoo solar system for over 150 years. Seeing as most of the resources needed began to become scarce on each of the planets, they warred for the minerals on the uninhabited planets. Fuel for their advanced technology, transposition systems and vehicles as well as weapons was at a critical state.

   One day a strange phenomenon appeared in the vicinity of the fourth planet.

It looked like a purple pulsating tear in the fabric of space itself. This became the center for the final days of the long and fierce war.

A seize fire agreement was agreed upon as massive battle stations and the war fleets of both sides converged upon this mystical tear in space. A time of unease was to be expected as scientists from both Marcavo and Klorathi joined together to investigate this phenomenon.

Months passed by before they could understand what this was, and during this time more areas of the solar system was experience the same situation.

It was finally discovered that these phenomenon were some sort of energy source that could be harvested. Large space stations called harvest platforms were set up at all locations to harvest this newfound limitless energy source they called Rift Energy.

Due to this energy source being limitless, it became the center for peace, and the end of the long war was at an end.

Dan dan dan dan...
What did you just create?...lets see here...
Something that reminds me of the good ole CONTRA button smashing days.
Has quite the 8bit feels going for it, and theres a hint of 16bit glory!

My my my...how my earbuds are tingling!

DanJohansen responds:

I've been dabbling in 8-16 bit synths, mixed with more modern synths, makes for a nice combination :D Glad you enjoyed it, good sir!


DanJohansen responds:

WOah thanks! :D
