Extinction - The G.M.O. Chronicles



A scientific experiment gone wrong is unleashed upon an unsuspecting world. A retrovirus, able to crossbreed the genes of plants, animals und humans, is accidentally released, creating a world of horrific mutations.

In just two days, 90% of mankind has died; the rest are turned into hideous, murderous mutations. Only a few people seem immune to the virus and have to struggle for survival in a now hostile and constantly changing environment.

Tom Keller is one of those survivors. He lives alone in an abandoned rocket launch base near the Belgian border. He thinks he is the only survivor – that he’s safe, that he’s isolated from the horror. But he soon learns he is not the only survivor, not safe and certainly not isolated from the horror to come!

Using a satellite phone, he is able to contact other survivors who come to his base for safety. There, they try to establish a normal life, but as the Genetically Modified Organisms (G.M.O.s) evolve, the survivors learn that the fence around the base is no longer protecting them. In fact, staying at the base makes them prey to the ever-evolving mutants.

As the survivors take off to find a new shelter, they learn about a second catastrophe heading their way. Putting aside their fear, anger and grief, they head South – towards safety, towards hope, towards a new beginning for mankind …
