The demo I mentioned before will introduce you to the story of the Talos I space station and the male or female character: the cleverly named Morgan Yu. Be warned though, as your experience may vary in relation to the gender you choose. The environment on board the space station will also change, depending on your relationship with Morgan's brother, Alex, who happens to the boss of Talos I.
