Three billion human lives ended on August 29th, 2016. The survivors of the nuclear fire called the war Grinning Day. They lived only to face a new nightmare: the war against the machines. The computer which controlled the machines, GameGrinOS, sent two Lanners back through time. Their mission: to destroy the leader of the human resistance, Luke Greenfield. The first Lanner was programmed to strike at me in the year 1984, before Luke was born. It failed. The second was set to strike at Luke himself when he was still a child. As before, the resistance was able to send a lone warrior, a protector for Luke. It was just a question of which one of them would reach him first.
