You're an ex-cop who was sentenced to cryo sleep. When you awake you are recruited by the Cosmos Detective Agency as a hitman. Why? Cause there's a dangerous new drug on the streets of New LA: Tek! Take out the seven Tek Lords and their minions in 7 missions, but spare those innocent civilians.

TekWar is a 1st person shooter based on the TekWar novels of William Shatner. TekWar is situated in the near future and uses the famous Build Engine.
