In Total Recall, a seemingly ordinary man named Doug Quaid (Colin Farrell) visits a futuristic company called Rekall – a place where fantasy is a commodity, and buyers can have any life and/or adventure they’ve ever dreamed of literally uploaded into their brain. It’s the next best thing to actually living the life you want to.
The Rekall experience goes horribly wrong for Doug Quaid – as evidenced in the epic Totall Recall trailer – but that doesn’t mean that it has to be a downer for you! Thanks to a new Totall Recall viral game, you can enjoy the Rekall experience for all it’s worth – and given the prizes offered in this contest, it is certainly worth alot.
