In the game, the player assumes the role of an Artificial Intelligence representation of a man named Alex Kendall, who was assassinated for having associations with the Defense Department. Before his annihilation, Alex Kendall had grown unsatisfied of his work in the Defense Department, and devoted his time and efforts to the expansion of the ever growing cyberspace. In his latest project, he had created a way of designing a person's ego into the net, using his own as a prototype. His attempt at doing so was a success, though Alex never got a chance to reveal his findings to the world, as he was killed shortly after awaking to see his family die at the hands of his murderer.

Throughout the game, the player controls Alex Kendall's cyberspace program of himself, seeking revenge of his family, and his own mortal self. The phrase "Revenge is best served on the Net" is shown in the opening titles before game play commences.
