Story
Spoiler for:
In the far future, during humanity's march into space, a disaster occurred during the terraforming of the moon, Europa. The Scientific and Colonization station, the Merkabah, was currently the control site for a new experiment that would accelerate the formation of a habitable biosphere on Europa, utilizing special, high-mutation rate organisms known as Poikilotheria. These single-celled organisms were introduced into the waters of Europa to begin building a biosphere. Meanwhile, on the station, more advanced Poikilotheria were being created as the next level of animals and plants for their new world.

But disaster struck, these multi-cellular creatures evolved at an incredible rate and soon overcame their containment and the station's control measures. Though at first only affecting small regions of the station, these subjects soon ran amok on the station and began hunting their human creators and captors. Over half of the population of the station perished before it was decided that the only hope of the survivors of the station was to go into stasis. The escaped creatures, now called Aberrations by the survivors, seemed to not notice life forms in stasis. So the survivors wait in a dreamless sleep for their rescue...

But there were those on the station still with hope of defeating the infestation. One of the scientists responsible for the development of the Poikilotheria developed a technique for inhibiting their evolution. A special type of bio-weapon which would inhibit the rapid mutations of the Poikilotheria enough that they could not adapt defenses to the control methods. However it was found that this bio-weapon would only be accepted into a subject and grow to full effectiveness if implanted during childhood and during controlled growth through puberty. So, the scientists offered his own young daughter to be the test subject, and set her into stasis until her body fully accepted and embraced the procedure...

It's been five years, and now it's time for her to awaken...

Characters
Spoiler for:


Nia Lyons
A young woman whom has been under suspended animation while an experimental treatment took effect. Though her memories have become faded during her time in stasis, she is particularly intelligent woman with a strong will.
The fate of the station now rests in her hands.



Sean Reid
The assistant to Dr. Lyons and a childhood friend of Nia's. He has braved the overrun station in order to awaken Nia and hopefully save the lives of the rest of the colonists and scientists currently in stasis on the station. The journey from the medical deck was not without incident, and now his life is fading as he awakens the station's last hope.



Dr. Lyons
Nia's father and one of the chief scientists aboard the Merkabah, he was amongst the team which spurred the development of the aberrations. His area of study is in mitochondrial DNA and Genetic Modification and was pivotal in his role as chief geneticist.
Perhaps out of his own guilt for helping to create these creatures, he set upon developing a method of eradicating them. In the end, he offered up his own daughter as a test subject, and none can know whether it was out of desperation or convenience...

Demo almost done, should be able to get it finished by the weekend, one more big test this week.

Since this game is set around the moon Europa, thought I'd post a little article about some interesting finds about Europa's composition.

Really a fascinating moon, hence why I based my game around it. ;p

I am totally impressed with the still images, and the gameplay is awsome. Very well done, indeed!
But it's missing a sound file- spacey?

The continent that game takes place in is called Europa haha
Awesome looking game though, once I get some free time I'll definitely give it a shot.
