Explore dynamic, changing environments in 360°, 3D-effect, lush, panoramic detail. Watch the world that surrounds you die, blossom or grow depending on the reactions of the fully-simulated ecosystems to your decisions.
Combat hunger and fatigue by cultivating plants for medicines, hallucinogens and stimulants. Hunt birds and catch fish; suck the juice from deset cacti to survive; but whether a watermelon vine has fruit, or a bird's nest has eggs for you to eat will depend on how you look after your domain.
You must attempt to control this microcosmic world while living inside it; you may achieve god-like control over the Technosphere by using the powerful BiO/Sys4 computer system; but even so, you will remain vulnerable to the consequences of your own actions.
A GLITTERING COMPLEX OF GIGANTIC GLASS DOMES BUILT HIGH IN THE ANDRES; A WORLD IN MINIATURE CONTAINED WITHIN, A 'CLOSED-LIFE SYSTEM', TOTALLY SEALED AND SELF SUSTAINING: FOUR DISTINCT LANDSCAPES OF JUNGLE, SAVANNAH, EVOLUTION AND OCEAN, CONNECTED BY A SUBTERRANEAN NETWORK OF LIFE-SUSTAINING TECHNOSPHERE MACHINERY.
NOTHING GOES IN, NOTHING COMES OUT; AND YOU ARE NO EXCEPTION
Tortured by ghostly visions, you must penetrate the poisonous, freezing gloom of the devastated Evolution Biome and discover its deadly secrets:
Who is responsible for the catastrophic forest fire that has killed the construction workers in Club Eden?
Who are the Subtech Corporation and what is their sinister intention?
What is the origin of the ferocious species active in the biomes, and what is the truth behind the guilt-ridden nightmares that you suffer?
Pursued, hunted down and trapped in a hermetically-sealed paradise, you must revive Biosphere4 back to dynamic equilibrium if you are to make it out alive.
