The streets of Parole are dangerous - and fragile. They can crumble underfoot and vanish at any moment. And with a permanent fire below, even walking can be perilous. Sometimes, it's safer to run. When people with practical survival skills or fantastic abilities join forces to get jobs done without getting burned, they call it runtime.

Tonight's run went off without a hitch. Infamous cyber-revolutionary CyborJ just delivered his best cache of goodies yet to the people of quarantined Parole, while cross the city, his silent partner Regan carries the real treasure in his pocket: a secret that could change all their lives forever. All Regan has to do is get home alive - but this run is about to be intercepted, and Regan is about to receive an offer nobody in Parole could refuse: escape. All he has to do is betray everyone and everything he loves.

Welcome to Parole, where the fire is always burning, and everyone is always running out of time.
