the early half of the 20th century, A man named Andrew Ryan,
a former Soviet citizen, built a utopia under the ocean
to escape the conflicts and turmoil of the real world. He
recruits the best people in all their fields; scientists,
athletes, artists, and so on and invites them to come live
in his dream, the city of Rapture. Rapture was designed
to be entirely self-supporting, with all of its electricity,
food production, water purification and defense systems
powered by volcanic vents at the bottom of the ocean. This
underwater world is decked out in an opulent 1940’s
Art Deco style from everything to ads to the furniture to
the architechture. It truely is a utopia indeed, except
that the city is flooded and the hallways are littered with
corpses.Those who were once the best and brightest of the
world above are now insane and genetically altered, roaming
It's quite obviously something horrible has happened here.
Everything was fine in Ryan’s utopia, until a special
breed of sea slug was discovered. This slug excreted what
were super stem cells called “Adam.” The Adam
was then refined into a usable format called “plasmids”.
Plasmids are mutable DNA that allow people to boost their
natural attributes, making better scientists, better athletes,
better artists - better whatever you wanted to be. Plasmids
rapidly became the most valuable commodity and war broke
outin Rapture to control it. Unfortunately in the conflict,
the slugs are eradicated, destroying the supply of plasmids.
A new way of harvesting plasmids is found, but the source
is disturbing to say the least.

remains of Rapture in the 1960's, you start you journey
through the crumbling city, trying to find out just what
is going on. Fighting your way through the ghoulish inhabitants
of Rapture trying to find a way to stay alive and to eventually
