Carnage is based in the near future. It is a time where technological advancement has reached a new plateau. Travel, entertainment and medicine have taken a sudden leap into the seemingly impossible, providing a whole host of new possibilities. It is a time where moral boundaries are more blurred than ever before. It is a time where society is constantly craving the new and extraordinary.
Television networks do as they’ve always done – strive to entertain and shock their audience into parting with their subscription money. Displaying ever more expensive, elaborate and extreme television in search of high ratings, TV is always pushing the envelope.
Now, one channel brings us a brand new programme, promising more than ever before. It fuses two components. One - a new technology known as Particle Based Manipulation and Reconstruction (PBMR), in the form of a machine called the “Reconstructor”. And two – the people’s growing obsession with combat.
Operating on the interim of the law, the new programme ‘Carnage’ offers the audience the opportunity to see real warriors actually fight to the death. But how is this possible? How is it legal? Through the power of PBMR and the Reconstructor, combatants are brought back to life, right before the crowds’ eyes. Their various splattered remains are molecularly located, transported across space, and reconstructed, just before the Reaper can get his bony mitts on them. Now how’s that for cheating Death?
The magnificent Reconstructor also allows some experimentation with the molecules of our warriors. Through the same technology, our battlers can be ‘powered up’ to possess super-human abilities, all for our entertainment. They can be made transparent, given incredible speed, or even morphed into something all together different – like a Reaper look-a-like for example! Who’s laughing now, Mr Death?
Carnage promises true mortal combat with genuine fatalities, but in the final moments of total death, your favourite hero is brought back from the brink! He’s ready to do it all again, all in the name of entertainment … and of course, in pursuit of the biggest pay cheque in the industry.
So the viewers are tuning in by their millions and arena tickets are selling out in seconds. And of course, the hardest warriors are lining up to do battle, fearless and greedy. But it’s all in the name of good wholesome entertainment. If the crowds demand it, who are we to argue? After all, nobody is (permanently) harmed during an episode of Carnage.
So, without futher ado – fire up the Reconstructor and let the Carnage begin!
Ok, so running man was a great movie and book, SmashTV was a great
game, and I remember them fondly. But do the kids these days
relate to cheesy TV announcers like we did - we probably grew up
on cheesy 80's gameshows, Bullseye, Price is Right, so we get
that. Just wondering how cool it would be if it was dark, really
serial killer lock you in the basement and make you kill your
friends dark. Maybe the announcer could be replaced by a
disguised Jigsaw type voice, lots of sick little sayings... I'm
sure you get the idea. I know for sure that I'd get sick of a
generic cheesy announcer, I mean how many times can you listen to
the same thing, before you have to switch it off. A voice with
some threat to it though, that might be different. I never get
sick of that 'Finish Him' saying in Mortal Kombat. Also, how easy
would it be to find someone to do a voice like that!
