0.5 Soldiers Field
The year is 2032. The Octagon engineers have been tasked with creating a new concept, a game to entertain the executive elite and society’s most wealthy and privileged.
They were given only three requirements: It must be brutal, it must be fast and there can only be one winner. As a result of their design, the first prototype of the Dominion was born.
The test site for the first Dominion is to be the desolate and
abandoned Harvard University campus on the banks of the Charles River, a
haunting place of crumbling buildings and overgrown courtyards.
Sixteen death row inmates have undergone six weeks of intensive combat training and will be the guinea pigs for this first Dominion.
There is no escape for them. The site is ringed by a disintegrator fence and they have just two hours to reach the end. But what the engineers didn’t plan for was a woman named Magnolia Gray and she has a completely different game she wants to play… Every nightmare has a beginning.
The Year is 2042, and Los Angeles Police Graduate, Jon Kobe woke up this morning to find out that his friends, his job, the society he lives in is one gigantic lie. And now they know he knows.

In the future the world is good. All levels of government are gone, overthrown and replaced by eight corporations collectively known as Octagon. In their hands they control all facets of society for the benefit of everyone.
There is order, minimal crime and a content,well-fed society. Or so it seems…

For Kobe to survive, he must find the courage to abandon everything that he believes in and become something that he is not.
Kobe is left for dead. Petra’s life hangs by a thread and Alta has been taken.The Pinnacle Trial has been won, but it’s only a glimpse into the shockingreality of what lies beneath a perfect society.
