Root is a game, for players that like a challenge, players will put their reflexes, maneuver and

Prometheus Corporation is the leader in the generation and distribution of energy to all
cities in the world. Due to the ideas and designs of charismatic president Demetrio Watts,
the corporation developed new technologies producing higher quantities of energy at a
lower cost, granting them near-absolute control of the market.
The friendly policies enforced by Prometheus and Demetrio Watts has made citizens
confident they will have access to electricity in their houses every day. However, very few of
them are aware of what's behind Demetrio Watts' smile or behind the scenes in
Prometheus Corporation. Secret plans. Terrible plans. Plans which will take the population
by surprise. When they realize what is going on, it will already be too late.
A group of rebels are the only ones who know Demetrio and his company's true
intentions, and will do everything it takes to bring the truth to light about the person who
pretends to be their eternal benefactor. It will not be easy or agreeable, but the danger
behind what Prometheus hides within is a threat to all. Stopping Demetrio Watts is in the
hands of a group of unknowns. Depends on Arcturus.
