The events of the game take place among the remains of Enoch – an ancient city, once home to advanced civilisation.
Two thousand years ago, the cataclysm of unknown nature destroyed Enoch, turning magnificent citadel into ruins. Amidst the dust, few that remain are still clinging to their existence, hollow shells of their former selves, far beyond the point where they could be called human.
On the outskirts of the forgotten city, a lone soul awakens from millennial slumber. Lost and abandoned, he sees the light, coming from inside the colossal tower and now his way lies through the treacherous ruins to the very heart of the ancient city.
The ruins of Enoch still contain the echoes from the city's former glory.
Explore the rural landscapes of the Enoch outskirts, dusty streets of the upper city, dark catacombs of Enoch underground and magnificent interiors of the central tower. Uncover the secrets of the Enoch's sudden decline.
