Game Description

On July 17, 2002, something (referred to as a plague) simultaneously kills every mammal possessing a Y chromosome including embryos, fertilized eggs, and even sperm. The only exceptions appears to be a few selected males, who have survived for an unknown reason.

Society is plunged into chaos as infrastructures collapse, and the surviving women everywhere try to cope with the loss of the men, their survivor guilt, and the knowledge that - barring a rapid, major scientific breakthrough or other extraordinary happening - humanity is doomed to extinction. People attempt to craft a new society that can emerge from this chaos, from the conversion of the Washington Monument into a monument to the dead men, to the genesis of the fanatical ultra-feminist Daughters of the Amazon, who believe that Mother Earth cleansed itself of the "aberration" of the Y chromosome, to male impersonators becoming valued romantically and professionally.

The game covers the start of the plague, and the time after it has struck. Over the course of thisjourney, characters and their associates watch society cope and restabilize in the absence of men. However, many of the women they encounter have ulterior motives in regard to any surviving male.
