The Dev - "My name is Adam, I created Mayhem Games USA in 2012 as a solo developer when I began work on my first large project called Barter Empire. Barter Empire was initially released on small indie sites in 2014, and was later greenlit for Steam and released on the Steam client in February 2015. Since then I’ve worked on several projects."
Story Quote - "When you came home from school that day, and you found him, the engine was still running, and the exhaust fumes were heavy in the air to the point of suffocation. Even though the garage door was closed, you instinctively opened it when you heard the rumble of the engine coming from the other side. Your father was dead."
