Here's what players can expect when they check out Livelock.

Livelock transports players into the 22nd century, the age of the machine. Nearly a century after the cataclysm, it's up to you to restore humanity. Clusters - groups of corrupted machines control what remains of the earth, fighting each other in an infinite war over resources that now threatens the very planet itself. Players take control of a Capital Intellect, a human consciousness uploaded to large mechanical body. Armed with a unique arsenal of weapons and special abilities, the Capital Intellect must fight the corrupted machine Clusters and break the cycle of an infinite war, before humanity is forgotten in the annals of history.

In addition to its $19.99 price tag, Livelock can also be bought for $44.99 for three copies so a person can give two to his friends.
