       Additional Information  
      Oil is depleting. There is only one master resource left: your perception of reality. The Solution has taken over the nation by planting a plague on cash and controlling the public with BIDs (Barcode Identity). But it is not enough. Through the molecular surveillance system Godhead, not only will the Solution see everything you do, they will tap into the Ultimate Reality and control you with tracer chips. You will become a Solution drone - until a rebellion is born. Randal, a Solution special-forces officer, and Elizabeth, a citizen mourning her mother's death, are caught in the middle . Closer to Darkness is a sci-fi/horror hybrid, taking place in a society where existence itself is the last resource government and corporations can possibly own. Along the horrific journey through high-tech battles and slaying creatures spawned from human psyches, a deity is born from the Godhead system . She must be stopped before reality itself collapses.
