When a massive crystal meteorite hits New Mexico, the US government hires megacorporation INFINITY to contain it.

Dubbed NITRO KIDs, the children have been locked away in the depths of the INFINITY labs to be studied in hopes of creating super soldiers and making millions from the energy source derived from them.
As one of the few who know about the NITRO KIDs, L33 makes it his life’s mission to save them – he explores every inch of the INFINITY tower and burns it all down. Explore each procedurally generated space and face off against elite humans, robots, and powerful mutants in roguelike battles set on grid levels that allow L33 to take advantage of the environment during battles.
Build capable decks from over 250 cards, including powerful kung fu moves, that you can use to defeat the robotic scum.
