A kidnapping victim, a missing virus, a girl escaping a killer, and a magazine about to go under.

This is where the player comes in. After watching video, or reading text, the player makes decisions for the chosen characters. Successfully getting all characters to the end of the hour will complete a chapter and allow progression to the next. Some text that appears onscreen is colored: blue text can be selected to learn more about terms or events, while red text can be selected to switch a player's perspective to that of another character.
