The future for humanity is bleak.

An invading army is swarming across the face of the planet leaving a trail of devastation in its wake. Billions have fallen prey to their advance and now only a sparse militia of scattered resistance fighters prevents them from taking full control.

Both sides have everything to lose. The invaders’ home world is dying and the Earth is the only planet they have found compatible to life. Mankind faces extermination if the remaining resistance let their guard down for even a moment.

The outcome seems inevitable, but there is still hope. Each side is led by one man determined to save their race from destruction. Each will do almost anything to defeat the other.

Only one of them can win. Can anything really be done to prevent the assimilation of planet Earth?
