Skimp is a story of the human race in its unyielding quest for survival when Earth's resources became depleted. U.T.E.C. was a terra-forming conglomerate established in an effort to expand and colonize other worlds in hope that there could be future generations. Here we follow the stories and lives of several native and non-native inhabitants of one of these such worlds in the aftermath of the collapse of the colonization process. Millions of colonists who have been trained their entire lives for such an expedition are now left with no means to leave the planet. Those not born in sand are dubbed "Sifters" as they must eke out a meager living from the remains of their once great empire. Death is rampant, as the last stockpiles of resources are extinguished and people must venture away from the more temperate poles in hopes of a new place to call home.
Follow the journey.
