They wake up, to find the ship in quite a bad shape. But, most of the vital facilities are working, seemingly cobbled together with welding, duct tape and crocodile clips. Writing on post-it notes, bits of paper and sometimes the walls gives them instructions on how to operate things, what has been cannibalised. The notes are written in first person, but seem to address the player's situation at whatever moment. They are written in chalk, in dried tea or in felt tip or biro.
The computer does not detect any other life forms since you were in cryo-sleep. You have apparently only been asleep for the recommended 2 years, although even more time seems to have passed. The players must journey below the ship, where the computer has lost it's influence, to fix it up and see to the engines, which seem to have stopped working along with the life support system, which apparently broke 5 months after they entered cryo-sleep. They should be dead, but air is still circulated and gravity is still on.
The messages continue about 2 levels down, starting with "Hi again" on the wall opposite the hatch leading into the 3rd level. The messages soon become written in oil, are etched in the walls and, eventually, what appears to be blood. They also start addressing the players by name. Soon, what appear to be small encampments start appearing, providing them with food supplies and water. Empty bottles and cans indicate someone was here before them.
What is going on?
