Dear reader, let me set the stage. In 1974, a B grade Sci Fi movie was released, called Horse Force. The affable Dean Jones stands unmoved against the tyranny of Tina Turner. Yes, this is where Herbie meets Mad Max….
We found the star from this movie buried in a barn near Albuquerque; a 72 Mustang Mach 1 modified for the film. Here it is for your enjoyment.
———The year is 2035.
INFORMATION is the new currency. Government forces in league with corporate elites, control all forms of communication. In a desperate bid for control, rural populations have been relocated to camps surrounding the sprawling urban centers. These areas are called “the grid”. As a result, outer areas have become a lawless wasteland..
The bourgeoisie is preoccupied with “Twisted Metal”, a months long race that travels the forbidden zones. They compete in crudely fashioned craft from a bygone era called automobiles. The colorful graphics of the auto cars differentiate the teams that fight to receive the coveted “cup of preeminence”..
Government forces rely on this deadly spectacle to distract the grid from their tightening grip on freedom. Little do they know, this will be their undoing. This year, there is a new competitor.
