It begun like a normal job. But upon arrival things are not what they expected. Now they must work together if they want to return home.

Corinth Colony
Corinth Colony is a class one quarantine planet, population is restricted to authorized personnel. The small planet is a security technology development and testing station. Everything on this planet has been genetically-altered to kill humans, it has one of the harshest environments designed for military testing and training. It was terraformed by UniGen Corp in 2054 and established in 2062. UniGen Corp is a multinational corporation with an ambitious history, developing and specializing in major advancements in the fields of health, energy, electronics, cybernetics, transportation, terraforming, and security. The master class (vessel) Sylvania is currently in route, transporting personnel and equipment to Corinth Colony. The ship is monitored by artificial intelligence, that pilots the ship and surveils the crew while they hypersleep.

The Obstacle
An accident released a lethal biological weapon into the planet's atmosphere, infecting and killing the colonists. The crew is forced to land on the planet anyway in order to refuel the vessel, and unwillingly come face to face with UniGen’s latest secret weapon. They must learn to work together and trust each other, if they want any chance of returning home.

What We Need
Everyone plays two characters, one crew member and one passenger, but only one will be a main character and the other will eventually die. I don’t really care what roles you pick, and which character you chose to live (or die), as long as you commit to playing the role.

Some of the characters have (predetermined) history together, you will need to work out that history with the other player accordingly. The history is there to create additional drama and tension between characters. The main plot is simple, survive the environment. The game will play like a sci-fi-horror.
