Synopsis

Plot

MISSION BRIEF

The Planet

Pollux 3 (third planet orbiting the Pollux star in the constellation of Gemini) has been classed as potentially habitable. Before settlers arrive there the scientists must know everything possible about the planet. Its atmosphere, climate, fertility and other factors which will determine the ease with which human life can survive. Other factors must also be known, such as predators and other life forms - that's where you come in.

The Mappers

Mappers are technically illegal under one 2582 Planetary Exploration Act which states "... and no person shall cause disturbance directly or indirectly to the planet or its inhabitants and shall not enter the planet's atmosphere without said planet being passed as habitable by law."
A Mapper is an explorer paid by institutions and large companies to obtain the more dangerous or difficult facts about a planet. Although illegal the government often turns a blind eye to such illegitimate explorations due to the population pressure for new habitation.


Your Mission

As a Mapper you are to explore the planet of Pollux 3, or at least your assigned sector, and bring back certain samples given in the specimen guide. You will be dropped down in the area to be explored and given map coordinates of all your outdoor locations, beamed down to you from the orbiting ship.

Be warned, no previous expedition has survived without casualties and little information has so far been gathered. Good luck.

Notes

"Unfortunately, this game isn't solvable. Disassembly proves that one sample can never be reached: the small mammal must be caught alive, but is always killed when caught"
