DescriptionAn intergalactic PI named Maksh has been kidnapped. Also, an evil shape-shifter is hunting for a special data storage unit. His partner, Alias Node, has been assigned to track him down. As Alias Node, you track down the shape-shifter to a bar, much like the Mos Eisley cantina, where your goal is to find the fate of your partner, and the alien who is disguising as the shape-shifter.
You, however, have a special ability, the ability to form a mind meld with beings. You can inhabit the patrons of the bar in an effort to locate your partner and the shape-shifter. With this special ability, the game is divided into six mini-games as you search each alien for an explanation. A unique twist is that you view each game as that alien would see the world, whether as an insect, a potato, or a being with three sexes. You're able to tackle each part of the game separately, and come and go as you please in this 360-degree panorama adventure game.

TriviaMeretzky tried like heck to keep the game at a "T" rating to maximize its audience. In the cowboy theme bar, there are "pictures of naked people, sufficiently in sufficiently low resolution so as not to jeopardize this game's rating". Nonetheless, the ESRB slapped The Space Bar with an "M" for drug use in the Auditon and Sraffan flashbacks.
