Story & Themes
Abe is a Mudoken, a peaceful and spiritual species who have been enslaved by the evil Glukkons to work in their factories. The Glukkons are an industrial species who have an innate distrust of magic and spirituality, and enlist the help of the bio-mechanical Sligs and their pet Slogs to help keep security.
One day Abe is doing his job when he overhears the Glukkon boss, Mullok, talking to his fellows about a new product called New ‘n’ Tasty. Their other products, different kinds of meat pies, are suffering. Just when all hope seems lost for their business, Mullok reveals that New ‘n’ Tasty is a sure way to bring business up cheaply. How? He intends to use the Mudokens, Abe’s species, as the main ingredient.
Shocked, Abe makes a run for it, but not before being seen. The hunt for Abe is on, and it is up to him to escape Rupture Farms and find enough power to save his Mudoken friends before they become meat pies themselves.
