But, with their active participation, will the spectators aid streamers or send them to an ultimate demise?

Contestants in a dystopian future seek fame and glory as they battle heavily armed opponents in an arena broadcast live-streamed by the masses. Unique themes, traps and challenges await contestants who will have to explore for life-saving sponsorship packages and outwit especially devious surprises from the show's director in order to become the next champ.
