You choose a characters from a roster of 15, each of which have different abilities. The game is then played on randomly generated maps of the base. You search for supplies and weapons but must also sleep, keep warm and fed or risk madness, slowing and other related effects. You win the game if you manage to get through 5 maps.

Is that an alien from the outer space or a mythical ancient creature from the from the depths of the centuries? Or is that a result of a failed scientific experiment?"
Rated PEGI 12 for infrequent use of mild language and mild violence. As the survivors try to sleep just enough to stave off fatigue without dying, they slowly go mad and eventually reach the point where they can no longer trust their senses. Mild language includes the words ‘*!@?*’ and ‘*!@?*’. Violence consists of alien creatures attempting to suck the life force out of your character. Details are limited and blood and injuries are not shown.
