On April 6, 2019, the greatest calamity known to man struck the earth. This is its story.
November 5, 2018:
The legendary scientist Dr. Richard Lier gave a speech about his new venture, the "Burst" project. It was designed to genetically modify humanity to become a super race. It would unlock our full potential; making us as strong as machines, as smart as computers, enabling us to sprint around the earth without ever becoming tired. It would even save us from all known forms of disease. AIDS, Multiple Sclerosis, even Cancer- all destroyed and weeded out. He was received to thundering applause.
December 19, 2019:
The Burst project has finally been completed, and is currently being tested. Promising results are being shown. The world marvels in glory as it is about to enter a new age of man.
January 17, 2020:
Strange abnormalities are found within the Burst code. It is taken under extreme inspection. Strange homicides are reported. The ones found seem to be almost rabid. All of the murders are horrendous and all of the perpetrators have the Burst gene within them. Tests are being performed, but there is no conclusive evidence. Burst research is allowed to continue.
March 1, 2020:
Burst goes airborne. It is spread all over the world, to combat disease of every kind and to bring man into the Golden Ages. People shout for joy, barely able to contain themselves. The partying is a global phenomenon, akin to New York on New Year's Eve.

Many of the ones who came into contact with the Burst are sick within their beds. Extreme agony befalls them. Only a very few, less than .000001 percent of the world, is left untouched.
April 6, 2020:
All of those afflicted by the Burst code suddenly rise as one, and get up. Surprised family members are quickly dismembered, then killed and eaten. Many plants and animals have been affected by the Burst as well, making them mean, killing machines. However, those who are brave and strong enough to defeat them are rewarded with food that has everything the body needs to stay healthy.
This is the story of the Burst code. A few months later, this broadcast was recorded and sent out on all radio frequencies.
My name is Allie. I am an Eraser, one who destroys the mutants affected by the Burst and looks for a way to reverse this calamity. I can offer food, shelter, and survival to any who receive this message. Please, come. Together, we can stop this calamity and restore Earth to what it once was. If you wish to survive, come to Yucca Mountain, Nevada, coordinates:
You can trust me. I need your help if you wish to live a normal life once more.
End of Broadcast.
