‘Four warring city-states are forced to come together to face a common enemy: giant mysterious mechs. Right before wiping out the entire civilization, the mechs all power down for no clear reason, leaving the survivors to rebuild their world together. 800 years later. The world has moved on. The city-states are now united as one nation: a land littered with massive robotic relics that serve as monuments to a long-forgotten war.
After centuries of dormancy, one of these long-frozen mechs suddenly powers up, revealing a man who is confused, misplaced in time, and still very much alive.’
Rewards tiers begin at $10 for a PDF of the book, and rewards at higher level tiers include physical bound copies of the book, T-shirts, book plates, 3D printed sculptures, art commissions, original art from the book, and watercolor designs.
