In their continuing efforts to establish a deep space program to search for habitable worlds, the Gargorian Deep Space Initiative wanted to study the effects of long-term isolation on a small crew of technicians responsible for a larger populace kept in stasis during the voyage. Leveraging the rich virtual worlds used by Pinnacle Station and the digizens of the Treatise Body, they created a sim that allowed them to simulate an accelerated timeline to see long-term effects without much real-world time invested.
But now something has gone wrong - the latest batch of testers aren't waking up. The Initiative has been quietly asking for volunteers to help them go into the sim and find out what's happened so that they can safely bring the others out without causing lasting psychological or physiological harm.
[A little bit of a space horror adventure with some investigation and just a little combat but mostly slasher-film-style tension throughout.]
