Story

You are competing to become the greatest Mad Scientist of all time! The Quantum Teleporter was to be your greatest achievement. After all, you have been creating giant rampaging monsters in your secret lair for decades. You are the master of the weather machine, the zap ray, and the super DNA recombobulator. Finally, you would have a convenient way to transport your brilliant monstrosities – there would have been no one to stop you.

You stepped into the most advanced machine ever devised and threw the switch. Energy surged through your body. A flash of light, and you were standing on the other side of the world – but something was wrong…

What happened? Standing before you was your exact duplicate. Then you learned the malfunctioning teleporter had created millions upon millions of duplicates of you before your hunchbacked assistant pulled the plug. At first, it seemed like a disaster, but then you realized it was the greatest single moment in the history of the universe! Finally, there was someone in this world who could challenge your staggering intellect: you.

Now begins the grandest game of all time. Cities will rise and fall. Monsters will roam the earth. Unimaginably powerful weapons will dot the globe, all so you can determine who among your duplicates is the Alpha – the ultimate YOU.

Oh, there is just one more thing: your minions are reporting that upstart “evil-geniuses” are taking up residence on deserted islands and in elaborate lairs around the globe. Apparently, each of them is vying to take over the world and their monster-fueled city states are rising up faster than human armies can defeat them. Nations are toppling. The planet is in disarray, and you’re the only one who can stop them – if you care.
