Set in a world where the true expanse and mystery of reality has long been forgotten, Rift takes us on a journey through the universe. Following the story of Guide, an adolescent Traveller boy who embarks on the quest of a lifetime to save his people after a deadly solar storm devastates his homeworld.
After being whisked away through the once dormant Gateway to the Nexus, a formerly isolated Traveller transport hub, Guide becomes the sole surviving member of his village. There he meets the Speaker of Ages, a Traveller who, after a previous solar storm many thousands of years prior, became trapped after the Gateways were disrupted.
He reveals to Guide the long forgotten truth of his people, and awakens within him new abilities and powers. In exchange, Guide must help him execute a plan that could not only save his family and friends, but also resurrect the entirety of the lost Traveller Civilisation.
