The Future: Earth is uninhabitable. A drug called Minkowskium allowed humankind to traverse through wormholes. We crossed the vast distances of space and fled to the stars, where mega-corporations are the only law left.

At the far end of the interstellar highway system lies the Kobeni Belt, a piss-poor sector with few resources. The only thing this hive of scum and villainy ever offered was its local gangs’ social media streams. 

Today, the only thing more valuable than Minkowskium is being the Kobeni Belt's next Social Media Superstar. And there is plenty of opportunity for the aspiring Jockey to deliver the Belt's best feed. Mega-corps are relaunching minor assaults, while the colonies send out concert invitations. The Gater cult is getting stranger and stranger, and rumors whisper of an artificial intelligence armada at the edge of the system. 

The world's been burning since the galaxy's been turning—the only question is: will you become the next Social Media Superstar, or go down in the flames of glory!?

Is there a version with single pages instead of spreads? The game is perfectly readable, but I prefer single pages on my device. 

Not yet, but I‘ll look into it!
