WorldWarThree happened sometime in the early two thousands. When the [[NukeEm bombs fell]] society as we know it [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt was destroyed]], and the few survivors [[AfterTheEnd eke out a bleak existence]] in the [[CrapsackWorld ruined remains of the old world's cities]]. Amy Wellard, a young girl who was barely five when the world ended, has a repair shop where she fixes vehicles and technological items [[ScavengerWorld with whatever still-usable junk she can find]], but she starts feeling symptoms of [[ThePlague Green Lung]], a terrible sickness that's been infecting lots of people and has everybody scared witless. The [[TheGovernment Aristocracy]] is trying to deal with it by distributing a vaccine, but there isn't nearly enough to go around, so a daily lottery is held where people who have a ticket - given as compensation for government jobs - are given a chance at winning a dose.

Scared and resigned to doing dirty, difficult jobs for the government in the hope of surviving, Amy is assigned to fix one of the many reactors that power what's left of the city, but through an unexpected meeting she gets in touch with the Rebellion - determined to end the authoritarian rule of the Aristocracy and give justice back to the people - and the [[ApocalypseCult Acolytes of the Reaper]], a cult with a [[DeathSeeker literal dying wish]]. Needless to say, not everything is as clear-cut as it seems, and Amy's in for more than one shock...

Added DiffLines:

* FullCircleRevolution: Invoked and defied; [[spoiler:Danton's ultimate scheme is to take up Tiberius' mask and become the new leader of the Aristocracy... so she can drive them off a cliff with crazy orders and give the rest of the population enough motivation to complete her uprising. And after hearing this scheme, Amy can kill her and Tiberius, ending the revolution and instating leaders who aren't extremists.]]


* WhatMeasureIsAMook: Several puzzles involve killing members of the Aristocracy's guards, who are mostly shown to be decent guys just doing their jobs. The narrative doesn't comment on this, which stands out because it ''does'' comment on her being shaken up even over mercy kills.

* OmnicidalNeutral: Amy can choose to embrace this at the end of the game [[spoiler:by killing Tiberius and then backstabbing Dalton for good measure. Since they're both extremists, this can be considered a good thing.]]

Added DiffLines:

* IllGirl: Amy, who has Green Lung. Her illness drives her motivation to find a possible cure. [[spoiler:After Aquino successfully makes one, she's no longer this.]]

Added DiffLines:

* TragicKeepsake: The Quicksilver, an old model car Amy and her father spent their time tinkering with before he passed away. In the story's present time, it's held up in Amy's garage gathering dust due to being unable to find the proper components for such a model. [[spoiler:During her hallucinogenic trip in the Acolytes of the Reaper, Amy reveals her guilt of never finishing, believing it would let her father down. He (or, a hallucination of him) quickly shuts that down.]]


* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: Amy, a kind, affable woman in the [[CrapsackWorld world she lives in]]. Although she's forced to do less than savory things a few times in order to survive, it's clear she always prefers not to.



* MercyKill: Given to the technician right at the beginning of the game. [[spoiler:Optionally given to Denby as a way of sparing him from being tortured further]].

Added DiffLines:

* WrenchWench: Amy, like her father before her. Her knowledge of machinery helps many times throughout the story. Additionally, she can distinguish any car, including their model and year, should the player examine them.
