A drone discovers an unknown asteroid. On its journey over the rocky surface it receives a strange signal. Following the drone from the outside and from within the control room, you discover the dark and mysterious corners of space. To locate its source the drone ventures deep into an ancient labyrinth. Here, the atmosphere soon becomes more eerie and dark, until you find the secret that the cave holds, even darker than space itself.
