Description

You play Jack, a doctor on a transport ship. The ship is transporting a woman who suffers from a previously unknown disease and who've been put in stasis to be taken to a research facility. On route the ship is shot down and you find yourself in the middle of nowhere with hostile people coming at you. In the standard first-person shooter setup you battle to uncover the truths of the disease.
