Description

As the intro scene opens, we see a man running from something unknown, but definitely alien. However, as there was no escape as a solution, he blew himself up. As the story starts, it appears that was your uncle Jacob, after which you're named Jake, and apparently, he left everything to you. He was one of the main ore mining owners, even though some say what he has is worthless. But you don't just believe in that 'suicide' story, so you take a shuttle on Luna Crysta in order to solve the mystery, and try to uncover the truth; why he was killed, and what was so important that he found/discovered and was killed for.
