Game Design and Plot
The game was initially designed to force players into a perspective of existence that is in ways much like ours, while separating it from reality just enough to present the distinction of civilization to natural order and selection. As the story involves and revolves around definitive events of chaos, there is usually a way, a possibility that stands above the rest, giving hope however false or misleading it might be.
At times the characters would prevail, while in others they may have to fight harder, or even lose a few. But in threshold fight is one single point that defines your survival.
Threshold is set in a universe that is however like ours it maybe has mysteries and a past that is so harsh, and so unknown, every revelation would lead to more questions, or a piece of a larger puzzle that answers or even questions are still to come.
