- Personal Apple Lisa 2 computer.
- Handcrafted environments.
- Multiple endings.
Looking to earn some quick cash, you sign up to work for a private research organization - three days of work for a year's worth of money. Upon arrival though, you realize it's not exactly a walk in the park. Even in this underground haven of research, where ethical guidelines do not exist, you've been assigned a task that no one else would dare to attempt.
Organisms would be raised from immeasurable depths. Their muffled screams would echo off the reinforced walls. The only thing standing between them and you is a steel vessel, designed by long-dead engineers.
There's a reason this laboratory was only used once. It's re-opening would go against all moral principles.
Disturbing imagery. Flashing lights.
