The team at Plast Craft begin their series of reveals for their upcoming game, EXO: Mankind Reborn. You can follow along as they reveal more about the characters and the world for this game over the coming weeks…
Greetings adventurers! In today’s post, we are going to delve a little deeper into the universe of EXO: Mankind Reborn.
First, we have to think about where and when the EXO story takes place, but for this we must first give a few hints as to what is happening in EXO: Mankind Reborn.
Towards the end of the 20th century and the beginning of the 21st, an unusual amount of natural phenomena weere recorded: tsunamis, earthquakes, hurricanes, and heat waves. All were cataloged as cataclysms. The number of these phenomena grew exponentially at the end of the century. The Earth, they realised, was coming to an end.
In the XXII century, in an attempt to restore the balance, it was decided to delve deeper into the field of renewable energies, but energy dependence made the situation worse. After years of research and through advanced techniques such as exofusion, perfect and infinite energy was discovered. This energy was given the name Exoenergy.
In their studies, they discovered that this energy could be absorbed by any element, giving it new properties. Thus, research teams from different laboratories in the world, each focusing their studies on one of the four main elements, created samples of exoenergy.
In this way, each laboratory obtained a different sample of exoenergy that were subsequently cataloged, according to the laboratory of origin, as follows:
- Oriental region: Blue Exoenergy
- Australian region: BlueExoenergy
- Paleartic region: WhiteExoenergy
- Ethiopian region: Orange Exoenergy
- Neartic region: Green Exoenergy
- Neotropical region: Green Exoenergy
Then it happened: A succession of great cataclysms, whose cause was unknown, and its consequences were devastating. This forced humanity to take refuge in underground caves, organising themselves in “tribes”.
The humans took refuge with the native animals of each zone, also in danger of extinction. Thus the ARK project was born to safeguard said species. They provided mechanical improvements to the animals so that they could assimilate the latent exoenergy in each zone. This endowed them with an amazing intelligence and longevity, turning them into their faithful companions in the dawn of this new era.
The use of this energy alongside the animals caused them to develop an incredible affinity with the exoenergy of the environment, giving them the ability to detect and extract it to be taken to their respective laboratory caves. In this way, humanity managed to process it and use it as a basic and necessary good.
In their studies they found that by applying exoenergy to different structures and machinery this increased their performance in a way never seen before, accelerating the production of crops, etc. The years of investigation and development of the exoenergy application in the animals and the own consumption inside the caves caused the reservations to be drastically reduced.
For this reason, in the year 2950, the council of wise men decided that the time had come to send the best individuals of each tribe in search of energy and resources to guarantee their survival. When they went outside, they soon realised that not only would they have to fight against the inclement weather, but they would have to face an adverse and wild nature where old acquaintances had become the dominant species in the world…
