On July 16th, 1945, the first test of the atomic bomb should have set in motion the end of World War II. It should have ushered in a new age of global technological advancement. And, it should have presented us with one of the greatest moral dilemmas in human history.
But in The Last West, the bomb fails. And a far greater catastrophe occurs. All scientific and technological progress ceases. Artistic, cultural, and social advancements disappear. World War II continues, unending. For sixty years everything slowly crumbles and fades, until an astounding discovery is made. The missing element on July 16th was a man... A man named Stephen West. And he may be the key to reigniting the world.
