About:

Sarah Parker wakes up in an empty room. She has been kidnapped. Your role is to guide her to safety, through a maze of escalating challenges and difficult decisions.

 

In this one-player game, you watch the action from Sarah’s point of view and communicate with her through a headset. It is up to you to guide Sarah through the narrative. Your objectives are clear: Get her out alive. Save the others. Catch the kidnapper.

 

With no pause, reload or extra lives, how will you play the game?
