You´ve saved the earth from total destruction. Now, can you save yourself?

An asteroid the size of a small moon is on a crash course toward earth, and only NASA veteran Boston Low has the expertise to stop it. Along for the ride are award-winning journalist Maggie Robbins and internationally renowned geologist Ludger Brink.
Once the wayward is nuked into a safe orbit, the trio conducts a routine examination of the rocky surface. What they uncover is anything but routine. Low, Brink and Robbins unwittingly trigger a mechanism that transforms the asteroid into a crystal-like spacecraft.
The team is hurtled across the galaxy to a planet so desolate, Brink is moved to name it Cocytus, after the 9th circle of Hell in Dante´s inferno.
The bleak landscape was obviously once home to a highly evolved civilization, with remnants of sophisticated architecture, advanced technology and an intricate network of underground tunels.
But no Cocytans.
Who were the original inhabitants of this once empire-turned-wasteland? What are those apparitions that mysteriously appear from time to time? Why have Low, Robbins and Brink been brought to this place? And how can Low keep his team from unraveling in the face of such uncertianty? To return to Earth, they must dig for answers, both on the planet´s surface and deep within themselves.

This adventure game, based on a story written by Steven Spielberg for his Amazing Stories TV series, immersed players in the role of Boston Low. Low was an astronaut voiced by actor Robert Patrick, who is perhaps best known for playing Arnold Schwarzenegger's rival in Terminator 2. The ensuing adventure featured more than 200 locations and a storyline that lived up to the game's tagline: “In the Dead of Space, Something is Alive.”
