This town even have famous American football league. But sometimes you can get bored even a burning hot sunny day like this, even a town like this.
that reason, Mark and his friends, Jesse, Benjamin and Simon, are exploring scrap yard, where they tend to go secretly to look for all the special stuff, mostly parts of the mopeds and cars. The only employee in the scrap yard has gone to lunch break, and Mark knows that this is their only change to explore treasures in a crap yard...

He peek into the truck, and notice that most of the stuff is badly damaged. But deeper inside truck trunk he finds a prototype of VR-glasses and a floppy disk. Mark smuggle the glasses and a floppy disk to his home and to his surprise, he find out that the glasses are compatible with his Amiga 500.

dr. Stephen J. McRegon, scientist, computer engineer, and something an a dreamer was asked to help a medium large computer company, to create a ultimate virtual reality system, which was ahead of time. And he did it. On year 1982 he created an open world game for Amiga personal computer, called AOSYS, Amiga operating system. AOSYS was capable to unlock incredible hidden features in Amiga 500, able to take full advantage of it's potential. Unfortunately it was never introduced to the markets in your dimension, where you read this message. Until this day came. McRegon found a way to blend space and time by simple breaking the law's of nature; He was sending radio waves Faster Than Light and that way broke the Cosmic Speed Limit. That maneuver opened a portal (which can be used only for sending small mass objects or voice), and hence deliver AOSYS to our dimension. For you all to play. You see, all physical objects, even you and your chair, exist in three dimensions. Everything has a width, and a high and a length. But there is another kind of length, a length in time.All characters and locations used in this game are fictitious in our universe and any resemblance to real persons, vehicles and places is purely coincidental.The game contains the instruction manual.
