Armageddon Man

Armageddon Man

The Year: is 2032 AD and the world is balanced on a knife edge between survival and destruction. The last thirty Year:s have seen an enormous expansion of the world’s nuclear arsenal. There are now 16 nuclear superpower nations, each with the capacity to trigger the final destruction of mankind – Armageddon!

In a world where trust is crippled by ‘Uncertainty of Response’ the 16 superpowers form a desperate alliance – the UNN (United Nuclear Nations).

Together they finance and build an enormous network of spy and laser defence satellites capable of monitoring, influencing and even directly controlling the political, economic and military events of the world.

Control of the network itself resides in an enormous and sophisticated satellite, codenamed Olympus – and control of Olympus resides in its Supreme Commander often called ‘The Armageddon Man’ who literally holds the fate of the world in his hands.

In This incredible new game scenario YOU have just been chosen to become next ‘Armageddon Man’. Whether you have the necessary diplomatic, military and tactical skills to avoid global devastation is something you, and the world, are just about to find out.
