* TheOutsideWorld: The first act takes place in an underground bunker, inhabited by people who believe the world has been devastated some vague disaster, with their bunker and a paradise-like place called 'The Island' from which no-one ever returns to be the only remaining bastions of human civilisation. The protagonists, Lincoln and Jordan, escape the bunker when they learn that it's a PeopleFarm where the inhabitants are cloned and harvested for their organs, and discover that the outside world is fine.
