Overview

When a mercenary king takes up the throne at MogulMedia, he enshrouds the country in silence, instilling terror in anyone who dares break it. The media king decrees the Law of the Green Light, spilling blood on his entertainment empire, and obliterating creative freedom for all. Unbeknownst to the king, an anonymous cab driver leads a group of underground performers to break the law. Armed with a powerful new energy, and backed by a social media uprising, these modern day jesters plot to shake society alive again, one party at a time.

Description

LIVE LIKE A KING. HIRE A JESTER. When a young mercenary king takes up the throne at MogulMedia, he enshrouds the country in silence, instilling terror in anyone who dares break it. The media king decrees the Law of the Green Light, spilling blood on his entertainment empire, and obliterating creative freedom for all. On the streets of Roxy City, the talented Vincent Meistersinger settles for a job driving taxi after having his dreams of becoming famous so thoroughly squashed. Penniless, passionless, and suffering from a chronic case of the Doldrums, Vincent watches the ultra-modern misery of a plugged-in, pre-programmed society come and go from behind the wheel of his cab. Desperate, he downloads an app one fateful night that plants a delightfully cunning idea in his brain. Break the law. Perform offline. Overthrow the king. Become...a jester! Ancient stories describe jesters as possessing unparalleled intelligence, astonishing talent, and the most cunning of wit. Jesters were so sharp-minded, some say, that it was they who ruled the nation from behind the king’s throne. Many believe jesters vanished because they were too analog for a digital world, that their exuberant foolishness had become a long forgotten myth. Until now.
