It is the year 200,100.
One of a series of huge, spinning satellites orbiting around Earth is known as Satellite 5, known for it’s absurd and entertaining television programmes.
Channel 44,000 is renown for it’s horrific ordeals, fights to the death gladiator style, emotional sitcoms which put actual people’s lives at stake, and anything where each contestant would likely be killed in the process. As part of a population restrainer set by Satellite One’s governing body and as a vicious and cruel way of keeping the citizens in line, a random selection of people are taken from satellites to participate in the blossoming entertainment of death.
The show that’s currently in the spotlight is called “Is Anybody Out There?”, a title comically quoted from a man in the first game who raised this question and was responded to by a wave of metallic monsters running at him through a dimly lit corridor.
This is the ninth run through of the show and still no-one’s ever made it through all ten challenges, which have been known to comprise of unsettling traps, obstacles and puzzles that they must solve through teamwork and hardship for their live television audience’s amusement.
The gameshow host often switches around, this time with special guest Andrew Reich who has been pleased to present crazy gameshow ideas for over a decade.
Inspired by an old Doctor Who episode called ‘Bad Wolf’ aswell as the Hunger Games trilogy.
This is a second run of the game I first hosted on Storium, which ran out of juice when one of the main characters left the site without notice and never came back. My narration and writing skills have vastly improved since then.
