Futility (Pre-Cutscene Story for Unity... rewritten.)

Recommended Posts

The year is 2051. Earth now lays a desolated husk, at the hands of forces that have left it to die. The atmosphere, scorched beyond repair, but holding, as the world asphyxiates itself. Whispers of a time before would say that this began in something far darker. Perhaps, voodoo. Or, the studies of a science beyond humanity, in the hands of a group that would misuse it. Those whispers, however, have been long dead, as would be its masters.

 

Whatever created this world has left it behind, or let it die. Something the undead relish.

 

The sun rises to show four shadowed figures, approaching from a hillside, walking towards a desolate church. Each carries a face wrought with inner turmoil, each a face lost in personal despair. An unspoken agreement between them, perhaps, that they want to leave this world, and yet they march.

 

"...get to the church. Better a place than none.", the first figure says, adorning a bloodied and ripped military uniform. A man who would look to be strong outside of himself, but has lost everything.

 

"...better a place to end it, yeah...", the second figure, a woman, dressed as a doctor, whispered to herself.

 

As they approached the church, the third figure, a scientist, ran through the door, finding a single, lone crucifix still hung about. He looked longingly before taking it off the wall and throwing it out the window, a pain fueling his anxious anger. The fourth figure, another scientist, mutters to himself as he walks into the church. Finding a bench, he sets himself down as he takes out a knife, spins it around in his fingers, before cutting into the backside of his arms, and opening up old scars on them, revealing the letters on them: "DC", and "TF".

 

Not moments later, the soldier shoots his gun. The loud crackle reverberates into the distance, and a far-off roar, an awakening, is heard. The group begins to set themselves up for the fight ahead.

 

Yes, it was this place, this house of a fallen God, where they wanted to die. In time, perhaps, they may still. But the events that are about to unfold will change everything.

Well, I said I'd do it.

 

Hopefully you guys enjoyed this! I retconned a few small things while making light of other things from the original. Other than that, this pretty much functions similarly in my mind. I'll see towards getting Unity tidy in a similar way soon enough.

 

But, until then...

Per aspera ad astra.
