Metal Chest


METAL CHEST - By Chris Yee

A timid robot. A human scavenger. To survive the war-ravaged landscape, two enemies must work together.

Household robot Silas is in serious need of a safe haven. After a brutal war that has pitted man against machine and ended with no clear winner, he’s left scavenging the ruined streets and avoiding deadly marauders. To secure supplies and reunite with the rest of his kind, Silas must find a partner…

Deacon trusts no one in a devastated world. After the death of his family left him hollow, he never expected a hapless robot to stir his sympathy. Against his better judgment, he guides the mechanoid on its journey home despite the distinct possibility of a deadly betrayal…

As they navigate a post-apocalyptic wasteland, will Silas and Deacon’s truce hold or will their team-up end in oil and blood?
