Description

You must drive your Mechos (i.e. car) about and through the realms, fulfilling quests essentially in the name of curiosity; the more successful you are the more you discover about the world in which you live. Specifically, you play a Lostie struggling within the World Chain to gain Dominance and knowledge under the concerned cynical eyes of your paternal wardens, the Eleepods. And so out you go racing in a Mecho, a Vanger warrior shuttling precious Phlegma, Nymbos, and Cirt from one forsaken corner of the realm to the next while gunning down the competition.

Trivia

The box contains the CD-ROM, the Vangers Manual/Reference (within it 'A Vangers Diary'), and a map of the first world 'Fostral'. This map is very long; the width/height ratio is 1/7.5. One can clearly see the horizontal tiling of the playing area.
