Synopsis

Plot

You have lived on the planet of Alpha Centuri all your life, but the planet has started to disintegrate and most of the other inhabitants have already escaped. You must try to do the same, but you only have 100 minutes left before the planet explodes.
As the game progresses, you'll discover that the only spaceship you can find needs to be repaired and refuelled. You'll also need the keys to start it and a space helmet to fly it. Can you find everything you need and escape within 100 minutes?
