Borderlands is an action, role-playing, first-person shooter video game
that was developed by "Gearbox Software" for PlayStation 3,
Xbox 360, Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X.
The series begins on the planet of Pandora. Lured by its apparent vast deposits of minerals,
several colonization ships sponsored by the Dahl Corporation
(one of several diversified mega-corporations that appear to control and govern entire planets)
journey to the planet and build settlements there. The mining operations are
cost-effectively manned by large amounts of convict labor brought to the planet by Dahl.
