It's never easy to retain originality in an industry where creative forces are working endlessly to produce unique, top quality content. But here at IWG we're just as ambitious as any of them (and even more so than most), and we're going to give it our best shot. We were given a title at random and our writers each went away and developed a different pitch for it. Read what they had to say about it right here!

Gun shops and hardware stores will give you all the tools needed, as you take the role of Quintin and go on a personal crusade to rid his city of the filth infesting it. He must use his training and skills to upgrade his wheelchair into a death dealing, armoured weapon to take on his town’s gang leaders and save his home.
Choose to develop Quintin’s own sense of honour and justice to take down his foes non-lethally, or instead go for maximum, blood pumping force. His actions will impact the game as his own family gets caught in the crossfire of his personal war. Whatever happens, Quintin must deal with the consequences of his actions. Save the city, protect your family and stay alive.'

The rights of the disabled has advanced considerably and at long last wheelchair-bound patriots have found their place in the U.S. military. A division known as AWP, or Armoured Wheelchair Personnel, has been founded, where machines are created for disabled men and women which can be occupied and used to devastating effect. However a new nation has unleashed a devastating attack, a bomb which causes a scythe-like explosion at 4 foot across the United States, effectively killing anyone older than 10.
The new nation figures that they can brainwash the younger American generation into working as slave labour, or joining their own armed forces. However, the AWP lives on, their “disabilities” being the one thing that saved their very lives. These brave men and women who have turned their misfortune into a strength are now the only thing that can stop a full-scale invasion starting in the South.
It’s time for an Armoured Wheelchair Hoedown.'
