You’re no longer sure who you really are or who you’re working for. Use an array of hi-tech tools to decipher hidden messages and mechanisms and uncover ever deeper and darker secrets of the facility. But beware of what you may find… Once you discover the truth, will you be able to stomach it? Keep it secret. Hide it from yourself.”
