The Victoria picks up two mysterious crates during the course of the rescue. Before you know it the Captain is eaten alive by the cargo, a horrific monster with whom you are trapped aboard the submarine. And that's just the start of your problems.Prisoner of Ice

As you use the computer terminal in the future, you see a cut-scene which is narrated by a "Howard Phillips Parker." This character not only bares the same name as Howard Phillips Lovecraft
, the author responsible for the Cthulhu stories, but also looks conspicuously like him.
