Set in a colony at the edge of the galaxy ruled by ruthless corporations, you awake from a deep cryogenic sleep by a rogue scientist, to discover that you might be the only one who can save — or condemn — the colony. The decisions you make as you encounter a host of memorable characters will determine the fate of Halcyon Colony. Will you be a star-gazing hero? A cruel villain? A bumbling interstellar disaster wearing a Moon Man helmet? The choice is in your hands.
