Synopsis

A novelization of the interactive Amiga game of the same name and composed mostly of the text from the interactive novel with some new additions. It takes the form of a series of notes on different subjects, in an order the player would encounter them through Homer (q.v.).

The player, taking on the role of an unnamed astronaut, returns from a failed 100-year voyage to 61 Cygni to find the Earth devoid of humans. Cars are rusted and covered with moss, the streets are completely barren, and everything appears as though the entire human race had just vanished suddenly. The player happens upon a barely functioning computer terminal that is tied into a storytelling mainframe, Homer. Through this interface, the player, assisted by Homer who attempts to weave the information into a coherent narrative, discovers information in order to piece together the occurrences leading to the disappearance of the human race. For instance, spending some time in the Medical Records section may unlock a piece of data in the Science section, and through these links the player can finish the game.
