Lightstep Chronicles shares the same universe with the Dark Horse Comics series Lightstep with stunning futuristic visual. But don't worry, you won't have to read the comic in order to enjoy this game. The developer team only took some elements to honor the comics so Lightstep Chronicles can be totally distinctive from them. That being said, if you have read the comics, you might be able to find some pretty interesting references in the game.
