Synopsis: Two unlikely companions embark on a perilous adventure through the badlands of an unexplored planet as they try to escape a dangerous and disorienting reality where all thoughts are seen and heard by everyone.


Reaction: Could use just a touch of work with pacing at times, but it's interesting and fun.
