'Glitch Goons' takes place in the year 2690. A centuries-old nuclear war has wiped almost everything off the face of the Earth. Descendants of the survivors now live in bunker cities underground, doomed to die from lack of water and oxygen. Their only hope is getting to a distant colony on the planet of Garthorix.
The only way to get there is through a system called the 'Transposition Channel'; which enables human minds to be transposed from their physical bodies on Earth, into the bodies of 'carrier' on Garthorix.
The Transposition Channel between Earth and Garthorix has limited bandwidth, so not everyone will be able to transpose their minds to Garthorix before the planet Earth expires. There is a fixed and controlled cue for transposition on Earth managed by the mysterious Controllers, who also manage the Transposition Channel. People wait for decades to get in the cue – they are eager and would do anything to get in line. Many people want to find them and bribe the Controllers, or even kill them in order to get into the cue themselves or to get their loved ones into it. As of now, no one has ever succeeded.
On Garthorix there are a number of carrier races, they have been bred specifically to contain human minds transposed into their bodies. Humans choose their initial Garthorix carrier while still on Earth. After the Transpositionis completed, humans take full control of the carrier's body on Garthorix, where they can live, travel, they can even buy or catch new carriers and transpose their minds from one carrier after another. Thus, on Garthorix humans can live forever, changing bodies from time to time.
It's a new world and a sort of wild west for those who have managed to break free from the decaying Earth. However, the more people transpose their minds into carriers on Garthorix, the fiercer the competition will get for resources and carriers' bodies.
