Excerpt from today’s Official Press Release by Aksys Games:

“In the year 2060, humanity has reached the stars. As they began to venture forth into the universe, they encountered an alien race known as the Atzai, who gave them the technology to combat the pollution that had been plaguing Earth. With this technology, humankind and the Atzai built Minos Space Station, which was design to convert pollution into fuel for space travel. For once, Earth was at peace and a strong bond was forged between Human and Machine. However, not all Atzai agreed with the human race and slowly rebel factions formed inside the Atzai ranks.

The year is now 2094, and rebel faction leader Zytron has attacked and taken control of Minos Space Station, along with all of its machines. Receiving a distress call from Dr. Julia Carson, Minos Space Station’s chief engineer, Atzai Command sends their best to save the survivors and stop Zytron from his secret “Extinction Agenda” for mankind.

Take control of Ares and newcomer Tarus for two separate story arcs, and uncover the conspiracy behind Zytron’s invasion of Minos Station.”
