A research spaceship was dispatched into deep space to study a collapsing star, but ran into calamity when it traveled too close to the event and got caught in the star's collapsing gravity field. A rescue ship has been sent but reaching it will be difficult for the survivors and the pull from the dying star's gravity is getting stronger. Will you ride home in comfort or be trapped forever in the Vortex?
Will you play as a competitive scientist trying to escape before your fellow scientists can and claim the new discoveries for yourself? Will you play as a cooperative crew, struggling to survive together? Perhaps you'd like to try the bonus solitaire mode and take on the role of the lone survivor struggling all alone to reach safety? With three ways to play, the choice is yours.
