SOLICITATION: Finally reunited with Evan, Aiko reveals a secret that will shake the city to its foundations. Meanwhile, the Order’s persecution of the Dusters passes a bloody point of no return. Allegiances switch and battle lines are drawn as the terrible truth of the Giga’s origins is finally revealed.
INGRID: Giga is tense and terrific. What started out as a mystery has turned into an exploration of a religion and the truth – and the conflicts that this can lead to. The Order persecutes the Dusters; the Dusters fight back in desperation; everything leads to more oppression. It’s a fascinating story drawing on a lot of parallels from our own world but presenting them in a unique way.
