The Outland Corporation’s CLOUD, a much-loved and massively-popular virtual realm, has been destroyed in a suicide bombing, which has turned all of Los Angeles upside down. Hundreds of thousands of
users who were in the CLOUD at the time of its destruction have had their data and electric selves corrupted, accidentally collectivized, and then dumbly redistributed. The fallout is catastrophic.
While Outland’s interim CEO Celeste Charming attempts to turn this tragedy into profit or worse, Dr. Oni Matsui sets out to free her captive friends and to prevent the forced evolution of humanity
for which her good intentions have paved the way.
