We first got the extraterrestrial message in 2030, thought it was in a complicated language. It caused an uproar. Skeptics, believers, protests. They gathered the world's top scientists, linguists, and mathematicians to decipher the alien code. And then we got it 10 years later, in 2040.
Nobody knew what to do. That's when they came. Large ships began attacking, spraying poisonous gas. Drones scuttled around the landscape. Even the most advanced military was powerless. One day, during what you assume to be your last days on earth, you feel a buzz by your chest. Every time you go in a certain direction, it gets stronger. You follow the buzz to a field, with a small bit of metal in it. Several other people are also observing it. It doesn't look like the machinery the invaders have. It's more pristine. Clean. silver. Feeling the urge to touch it, it breaks up into minuscule pieces and digs itself into the veins of the observers. Suddenly, you gain "powers". Abilities beyond the average human. You must survive. Fight. Save the earth. It's up to you.
