    Years have passed since Julie Strain (a.k.a. F.A.K.K.2) defeated the would-be God Lord Tyler on the bloody battlefields of the Holy Land. She has long since put the pain of those days behind her and brought her homeworld of Eden to a perfect natural balance. But far away in the deepest nebula's of space, the greatest evil of all stirs, ready to make its final move -- to take control of the entire universe. A lone beacon hurtles toward Eden, hoping to summon the god-slayer F.A.K.K.2 one last time. It bears nothing more than an ominous warning: "GITH IS COMING."

    Ritual's Heavy Metal F.A.K.K.2 will blow your mind with its immersive story line and special effects. Imagine everything you know or think you know about what a 3D game experience is all about and wipe it from your mind, then you will be ready for the incredible environments that span as far as the eye can see. A world that is populated by friends and foes, all of which may or may not have your best interest at heart, and action like you've never seen. Utilizing the most cutting edge technology available, F.A.K.K.2 delivers some of the most stunning 3D action of the year, and it's coming soon for Linux!

    Years have passed since Julie defeated the would-be-God Tyler on the bloody battlefields of the Holy Land. She has long since put the pain of those days behind her and turned her eye to more pressing matters. On the long journey from the Holy Land to the Galaxy of the Twin Suns she gathered those without a home in the universe and brought them back to her homeworld of Eden.

    As the colonists rebuilt their new world, they discovered something wonderful: The water of the new Eden is the beginning and end of all life. None of the colonists have aged in the past 30 years. They have protected their world with a powerful energy shield, and perhaps more effectively, they placed into orbit a F.A.K.K.2 (Federation Assigned Ketogenic Killzone) hazard beacon, alerting all who approach that Eden is a death trap. Knowing that the shield would keep possible attackers at a distance, and with the beacon hiding their secret under the veil of a fatal wasteland, the colonists have become happy and complacent in their comfort and safety.

    From somewhere deep in space, a PlanetShip, a vessel which consumes entire worlds, approaches -- its ancient leader Gith at the helm. In this Universe full of would-be-Gods, the machines of man alone cannot change the call of Destiny. There is one who must be called... The Starstrider.
