The player is the last survivor on the mission to restore the ship and somehow return to Earth.
Death is Just the Beginning - The only thing that hinders the lifeboat is a series of cloned monsters, constantly added by the clone printer on board. If any encounter with these monsters dies, Zimri's consciousness will be uploaded to a new host body, ready for the next challenge.
An Ever-Changing Labyrinth - A colonial spacecraft has a self-configuring macro structure that can change its internal architecture. When waking up in a new cloned body or teleporting between floors, the layout of the spacecraft will change every time. Each expedition into The Persistence will be unique, with different items and equipment to collect and upgrade.
Enhance, Upgrade, and Augment - Technology of the 26th century to enhance genetic and technological manipulation on matter.
