The world is absolutely fucked. The American Dream has become the American Nightmare, and the paradise the world was striving toward is slowly turning into a hell.
Since the late 1990s, it seems like the world is rapidly approaching a technology singularity. Yesterday’s science fiction is today’s buzzwords, and the world just keeps getting brighter.
Or at least it was. After a short period of peace, the terrorist organization known as Heaven Smile have caused old tensions to flare. The nations of the world are at each other’s throats, and deathsport is broadcast on live television. If things keep going like this, war is the only option.
Welcome to World Pulse Remix. The world’s on fire. Will you get a bucket or fan the flames?

World Pulse Remix is a setting for the Revised Second Edition of Big Eyes, Small Mouth. It is primarily based on the video games EarthBound, killer7, and No More Heroes. Taking place in 2012, the game details a world gone mad. Aliens, assassins, psychics, and utter strangeness abound in this post-modern, absurdist USA.
