Shockwave: Invasion is imaginative Sci-fi adventure with plenty of action, as the people of Earth are forced into interstellar war with an ancient galactic empire. It has been 10 years since the first alien invasion. We thought they were the monsters rather than merely a preview of what was to come. The real monsters showed up a few years later. It’s a wonder we’re still here. Reverse engineering all that advanced alien equipment opened whole new branches of science. That alien tech leap, together with our own achievements, gave us the means to travel between stars, and produce weapons of war to rival our enemy. Just as important, the first invasion united us as one people, with a noble purpose. And we have had enough!
