Posted by David Lambert
In the 22nd century, war was waged with mechanized warriors. Man had finally found a way to make war with minimal loss of human life. It was a good concept, until the machines united and turned their fury on their creators. It is the year 2148...the METALWARS have ended...machines battled man, and the machines won. Out of the ashes of defeat came JONATHAN POWER, humanity's last hope of defeating the BIO-DREAD warriors that are led by the evil LORD DREAD. Captain Jonathan Power and a devoted band of freedom fighters are all that stands between Dread and the final destruction of mankind.

Character Concept Art
The packaging hasn't been finalized yet, but below we have some temp art that VSC had included. When all is said and done, this may end up not looking anything like the finished box cover, so please don't get attached to it just yet. But on the other hand, it could end up being the art that gets used for the package, so we've decided to share it with you. Note, though, the "Coming Soon" notice across the bottom indicates that this is mainly a promotional image! Stay tuned and we'll bring you the final packaging, along with any updates to the details, just as soon as we can.
