About the manga “Darwin’s Game.”
It follows the story of Darwin and his friends as they are forced to play Darwin’s Game-a, a twisted social experiment where players must kill each other until only one person is left alive.
Darwin’s Game Plotline
The story revolves around an online video game called ‘The Darwin Project,’ which requires its participants to either fight or starve for their lives while battling against both environmental elements and player opponents (the latter being optional). A government organization called the International Survival Union, which is modeled after a post-apocalyptic government, sends out 12 players to represent them in this game. They are given a variety of weapons and gadgets to help them survive.
The story begins with this group at the arctic, where they have set up camp on location for the game’s release. A storm hits their arctic basecamp before launch day, but they continue anyway…despite some members being missing from the original 12 person team roster-including its leader. The remaining 11 players find themselves cut off from each other when an avalanche cuts through their encampment. They then wake up in different locations around Arctica and must devise survival strategies alone or together as a team to escape alive.”
