NEBULA: Sole Survivor tells the story of engineers and astronauts on a deadly moon of Jupiter called Europa. Discover new creatures and weapons as you fight off levels of The Infection, to get off of the moon that was once going to become a second Earth for human life. Learn the layout and solve puzzles as you fight your way to an escape through the underground base, CICADA, fighting off anything that comes your way. Become the survivor and experience the fear of Europa’s creatures down every turn. Join the fight!
You play as Ivy Howlett, the last known survivor of the CICADA Base. She is a scientist and knows her way around heavy machinery, for** that was her job before the attack**. As Chief Engineer, she willl have to science - and shoot - her way out of the Europa moon. But it won’t be easy. The Infection hides in every corner, and it never rests.
The game takes place on the icy moon of Jupiter, Europa. In a not so distant future, the United Interstellar Administration has settled a top-notch scientific research station on Europa’s surface, called CICADA Biomass and Geology Ground Base. The station’s purpose is both to study the life forms that were detected deep inside the subterranean caves of Europa, and to start laying the foundations for the first human colony within the Jupiter Sector.
The Jupiter IV-ALPHA Project is a network of satellites orbiting the Europa moon, with the sole purpose of collecting geological and orbital data.
It all started many years ago, with the ambitious research project of the visionaire geological scientist Dr. James Rickman, who dedicated his career (and ultimately his life) for a goal that many thought was in vain. Dr. Rickman was convinced from the beginning of the existence of life under the surface of the Europa moon, and if life were indeed to be there, colonization would be a matter of just a few years.
After months of inconclusive readings from one of the Jupiter IV-ALPHA Project’s satellites, life was confirmed under Europa’s frozen crust. A manned mission was immediately set in motion and in 23 months a small group of astronauts was sent to the moon.
The first life form that the group came in contact with was a small insect-like creature, which they promptly called the Europa Cicada. The creature’s natural habitat was an icy cave complex called the Theseus Lair, located deep under the icy rock surface of the moon, close to where the CICADA Biomass and Geology Ground Base was built, a few weeks later.
Dr. Howard was Ivy’s mentor. As heir to his project, she will now need all the knowledge and resources she can gather in order to escape from the moon alive.
