"Before the creation of Adam and Eve, certain Apocryphal and Gnostic texts speak of a being first created by God in His own image that was later abandoned. Called the Firstborn, the creature was a singular being neither male nor female, dark nor light, both beautiful and terrible to behold. God was so disturbed by what He just created that He banished it into the Abyss to be forever forsaken, forgotten and unloved.
The Firstborn, too powerful for even God to keep from breaking into the mortal world, would make seven attempts to escape, each time taking back a piece of the earth to add to its domain and each time sent back to the Abyss. Fragments of time and space would form layers around Al Khali, entrapping pieces of history within its walls from the time of the ancient Sumerians to World War II. Over time, other great conquerors and civilizations would arrive to claim the city as their own. Eventually, the city was forgotten and buried by the sands of time.
The Department of Occult Warfare was created in the 1930s to combat the supernatural and unexplained. The Jericho Squad is sent to Al-Khali to prevent the unleashing of the Firstborn upon mankind once again."I designed the main character team and one of the monsters, and the look of those guys ingame is pretty close to what I had envisioned so that's all very cool.
