The story behind
Local teenagers stumbled across a mysterious object of unknown origin while trespassing in an abandoned estate. Since then the area has been overrun by authorities, quarantined and deemed off-limits to civilians.
You are part of a meticulously selected team charged with solving the riddle of ‘the artifact’, but time is limited as various organisations around the world lobby for their chance to uncover whatever secrets might lie inside. Our only clues are strange hieroglyphs on the surface and sporadic signals emitted from within.
What is its function? What’s inside? Will we like it?
