TV City

TV City

TV City is a giant metropolis whose inhabitants spend most of their time watching television. There is only one exception: Mr. X and his employees are too busy producing and broadcasting the programs.

But one day an error works its way into the system, bringing the entire broadcasting center to a halt and the city into an extraordinary situation, which Mr. X tries to get under control.

It's all about power: power out of control, power with no limitations, power with no end.
