The Crown of Wu tells the adventures of Wu, a half-ape, half-human who, having once been the emperor’s herald, began behaving chaotically due to the use of a crown that gave him extraordinary powers. It’s as if wearing it corrupts the heart… Eventually, his crimes and atrocities led to his being captured and sentenced to a harsh punishment; frozen in biostatic solution. After dozens of years spent almost conscious but immobile, Wu manages to break free from his prison and discovers a decadent world in ruins. Also, his crown has been stolen and is being used to provoke a vibration that will eventually lead to a gigantic explosion leading to extinction… Wu must retrieve his stolen crown and help those he once punished to save the world and redeem yourself to finally find peace….
