XENOMORPHEs dauerte 3 Tage die Sirius B. Minen zu erreichen und das schwer beschädigte Raumschiff zu reparieren. Der Landeplatz sieht übel aus - Kein Zeichen von leben! Ihnen fehlt Nahrung, Wasser und Treibstoff und Sie müssen den Bordcomputer neu programmieren. Was passierte mit den 200 Arbeitern, die hier stationiert waren, was befindet sich in den Minen, welches Geheimnis verbirgt sich hinter diesem Horror? Können Sie in den Minen der Xenomorphs überleben und das Rätsel lösen.
It took 3 days to arrive at the Sirus B. mining station, to nurse a badly damaged spacecraft. On the landing pad, the situation looks sinister. Your damaged craft is short of fuel, water and food. The facts are, you must repair the ship, obtain fuel and provisions and re-program the ship's computer. But what fate befell the 200 workers stationed here? What mystery links the horror within - to the dawn of human civilisation? Can you survive a descent into the lair of the Xenomorphs.

Just a normal two year supply run to the mining installation on Sirius B, until the cargo pod decided to remain in hyperspace, wrenching part of the coupling away, sending a destructive charge of energy through the ship. Luckily the ship's CNS managed to thaw you out before shutting down.
It took three days to arrive at the ESSEN mining station. Three days nursing a badly damaged spacecraft, trying to contact the docking port. Three days during which the realisation that all is not well has grown.
On the landing pad, the situation looks sinister. There is no sign of life!
Your damaged craft is severely short of fuel, water and food, all were stored in the missing cargo unit. More importantly, most of the ships data banks have been wiped or corrupted, and a many of the CNS's electrical components blown.
The facts are, you must repair the ship, obtain fuel and provisions and re-program the ship's computer. With a bit of luck the mining colony should have all the necessary spares.
But what fate befell the 200 workers stationed here? What stalks the metal labyrinths below the surface? What mystery links the horror within - to the dawn of human civilization? Can you survive a descent into the lair of the Xenomorphs.
Full first person perspective.
