Life's A Blur

Five years into the future after a mysterious new threat, the Blur, laid waste to the world. Whatever its cause may be, it has left our young hero alone in this world until they encounter a young girl running from the invisible killer. Together they make their way through the dystopian countryside and abandoned buildings alike until they are forced to confront what it is they have been running from this whole time. Life's a blur holds important messages about our past mistakes, as well as exploring the five stages of grief, something the end of the world tends to have you thinking about. Can our hero's survive their past or will it come back to bite them?
