A retro-futuristic epic of steam punk battle set in 1914. Its 15 years since the original HG Wells Martian invasion. Fearing another attack, the human race is prepared itself. This is the story of the battle tripod ‘Goliath’ and its young crew. ‘Goliath’ is the vanguard of an army steam powered battle walkers, heat-ray biplanes, and armored zeppelins facing a Martian fleet of giant fighting machines and flying wings. Within the cockpit of ‘Goliath’, courage under fire, conflicted loyalties and the struggle to save earth, in this new War of the Worlds.
