Time has eroded the human race to near extinction. Those who remain must find a successor in a new species. Among the many desperate attempts, sits a lone rocky world forced to sustain an implanted jungle. Incuso and its garden, home to the Vower - a new organism capable of perpetuating intelligent life across the galactic void. But first it must evolve.

Aiding their ascension from primitive to enlightened are the Artas: human based bio-machines built to promote Vower organic and psychological evolution. Through genetic pollination, they guide Vower biology. Through war, they guide them to civilization.

I am the gardener, one of the last remnants of the old kind, and, through the Vower, I will reclaim humanity's place in the universe.

Enter the world of Arta...
