Rag Tag Children of the Gloom

Picture a disparate group of children living hand to mouth in fear of being captured by the alien race that has decimated their homeland. Food and safety is a distant memory. Dirty and feral, with aching limbs and open sores, their only solace is their bond of friendship with each other in an otherwise never-ending hostile environment. The trials and tribulations faced by this band will leave you breathless as they try to stay ahead of ruthless intruders. The cover of darkness seduces them to take unprecedented risks – risks that could mean death. If you have nothing, what is there left to lose?
