Ten Years Ago there was a deadly virus dubbed as ‘The Great Crumble’ that happened to be a global catastrophe taking down human civilization. At the same time, there was the mysterious emergence of half human-half animal hybrid babies. But as the people were unsure if the hybrids were the ones to cause the Virus, or did they emerge due to them, humans feared and hunted them. The story follows a half deer-half human bit named Gus. He lived a decade away from humans in his own home in the secluded part of a forest. But one day as he ventures out of his walls, he encounters a lone traveler named Jepperd. So along with him, Gus set on a new adventure to search for the answers to his origin and Jepperd’s past.
