Game Information
Short Introduction: 
On a ring-shaped space station, your lone heroine must search for survivors of an alien attack while avoiding the aliens, fixing the ship and, most importantly, avoiding the deadly human-killing laser sweeping round the station
Platform/System: 
non-digital (board game, card game, physical game, etc.)
Platform note: 
Board Game
Brief Play Description: 

Based loosely on Pandemic, play consists of a single player taking their turn on a randomly generated circle of 12 locations, during which they can take three actions including moving, interacting with or searching a location, or killing an alien. Following this, the laser will sweep around the station a certain amount, and aliens will spawn.

As play goes on, more and more aliens may build up on the ship, and if a location exceeds 3 aliens, the player will lose.

The player can also lose if the laser catches up to them or play goes on too long (tracked by an ever-increasing alien spawn threat.

If the player manages to search enough locations to find 3 survivors, then returns to the shuttle pad from which they Entered, then they win the game!
