A World Eroded by Despair

The year is 2028. 10 years ago, humanity, under attack from the mysterious “aggressors” from outer space, established the Earth Defense Force, also known as the EDF, to counter this threat.

10 years later, the aggressors have bread and grown in number, leaving behind devastated lifeless cities in their wake.

These giant insects have now replaced humans as the new rulers of Earth….

Citizens lurked underground to continue living in urban areas, but many of them were refugees searching for less damaged areas. It is forced to live wandering while moving to a region with a low temperature which is supposed to be beyond the forces of giant creatures.

Even the Earth Defense Force who was the hope of the human race, its strength has never been disappointing and has been weakened by the enemy’s tremor. The central command headquarters was destroyed, the organization was as it was. The remaining troops continued resistance independently by themselves, but they were forced to take a guerrilla-like battle with bases that barely survived as bases.

Mankind had no choice but to continue fighting unending and endless. In order to survive in the world eroded by despair.
