Ramto, the protagonist of the game, wakes up on an abandoned spaceship and realizes that the entire crew is missing. Determined to find out what happened and make his way back home, he must learn to operate the various machinery on the ship. The puzzles in the game mainly revolve around interacting with different elements of the machines and devices, aided by the numerous notes left by the crew.
The game, unlike most adventure games, focuses on one location at a time until all the puzzles are solved and specific points are interacted with to advance the story. Only then do players gain access to the adjacent location. The visited areas contain moving background elements such as a following dog or flickering images on monitors. The atmospheric music enhances the sense of isolation and melancholy.
Players can transfer various items to the main screen and leave them anywhere in the game world. This unique mechanic sets the game apart from others in the genre, offering a fresh and immersive experience.
