You play Erin, a special ops soldier trapped in an otherworldly domain. Explore and find a way to escape from this haunted and imposing structure that looms ominously over the wasteland. The Tower is infested with grotesque insects, ghouls, and your demonic former squad mates. Meanwhile, a mysterious stranger is also on a personal quest towards the Tower, carrying a burden that may aid in Erin’s desperate attempt to survive.
