Except there are more robots! Like the one the slovenly Null Lasker (he's your hero, unfortunately) controls from the comfort of his living room in order to fight for SKIRM® in a distant warzone. Think of SKIRM® as like Uber for war, except there are less benefits and the pay is somehow worse.
Everything goes well until Null pushes the system too far and finds himself in a world of trouble — and on the run from his employer.
