Set on board a deep-space scientific vessel called The Persistence in the year 2521, the ship arrives at the site of a collapsing star 17,000 light years from Earth. While conducting a major experiment, a horrific incident occurs mutating many of the crew. As The Persistence is pulled into the gravity of the collapsing star, the ship's computer, IRIS, wakes remaining members of the crew from cryogenic sleep - one at a time. Can you stay alive long enough to save The Persistence?

The Mission:

The Persistence is on a 7 year mission to travel to investigate a dying star, approximately 17,000 light years away from Earth. Unusual shifting energy emissions have been detected by the Soliance Deep Space Energy Detector that may indicate the formation of a Type 1 stable wormhole: a theoretical phenomenon that has been postulated but never discovered - the first of its kind.

The scientific potential of a stable wormhole with a known, and fixed, beginning and end point is enough reason alone to justify the commissioning and engagement of The Persistence and her crew. Such a discovery would advance space exploration to an unprecedented manner; perhaps for the first time outside the known galaxy, or perhaps to a different star system. The potential for exploration is utterly compelling. 

Collaborative Play: Phone a Friend

Your friends can also help out by connecting to the game with their phone or tablet and hacking into the ships computer. 

Once in the ships system, players get to control doors, freeze or distract enemies, disable traps and find hidden items to scavenge for the VR player. Be aware though, sometimes the tablet player gets rewarded if you die, do you trust your friends?
