2018 Day 69A – Review – Neon Dark The Abyss of the Azologoth: Episode 1 by Mathais Koreborger

Right before her commander sends her to her death, Ayla manages to break free of the grips of the Over-ride implant & rebel before its too late. Her commander Captain Jayda however will not let her escape so easily as the stakes are stacked against both women.

Neon Dark is visual smorgasbord of stylized visual effects & smoking hot characters set in a dark, gritty dystopian future where women venture to the island of Mallera-9 to work for the evil corporations Black Faction Corps & Caterina Private defense in their pursuit for Neon Dark.

Sometime in the not too distant future the ultra large Pacific collider went online, causing an inter dimensional rift beneath the island where the detection station lay, Mallera-9. What followed was the worst catastrophe in human history and single biggest loss of life. Earthquakes, Tsunamis, violent storms and increment weather plagued the world for months until the rift stabilized.

When scientists returned to the island, the background radiation made all the men sick & eventually killed them, leaving only the women. Discovering that the radiation only effects Y Chromosomes the task of exploring the island was left up to women.

Strange creatures began to appear throughout the island, originally thought to be mutations it was quickly established that they were from another dimension, complete with their own Eco-system to support themselves. Given the name Azologoth, they use tentacles to pull prey in to be consumed. Ground based they are hard to see until its too late.

Eventually the women exploring the island & its new habitat figured out a way to incapacitate the Azologoth, making their way deep down to the entrance to the Maw, where they discovered a strange, black glowing substance that would become to be known as Neon Dark.

Neon Dark has essentially no mass but immense energy, from another dimension it doesn’t fall in line with our dimensions laws of physics. Neon Dark thrusted humanity into a new technological era or limitless energy and interstellar travel.

But out of all the places in the explored galaxy, there is only one place where Neon-Dark can be found and that is on Mallera-9.
The element is priceless & eventually scores of women were recruited to work on scouting and extraction missions, battling Azologoth & eventually companies battling each other over the element.
