Lost Planet takes place in a dystopian future (the year is given as T.C. -80) where planetary conditions on Earth have become too hostile to support human life. A scientific enterprise known as Neo-Venus Construction(NEVEC), spearheads a colonization effort, ultimately choosing the planet of E.D.N III. E.D.N. III is perpetually cold and snowy, originally inhabited by a species of aliens known as the Akrid, who forced humanity to abandon E.D.N. III by strength of numbers and surprise. Initially, the Akrid deterred humans from colonization, but this changed when T-ENG was discovered. Thermal Energy, or T-ENG, is a powerful energy source, found only in Akrid bodies, which made humankind determined to fight the Akrid, for which purpose NEVEC created the Vital Suit, or VS, technology, essentially mechs powered by T-ENG, carrying mounted weapons.
