Aboard the interstellar vessel ESS Redemption, CD-24 a small autonomous robot of the Cognisant Droid series (often referred to as Coffee Droid by the human crew for what they deem to be its primary purpose) activates from its three-hour charging cycle. Emerging from the charging bay, it finds the crew dead and the ship damaged. The Redemption's main computer has set main propulsion operating at full capacity to prevent the ship from falling into the gravity well of a nearby black hole. Though not quite at the event horizon yet, the Redemption is slowly being drawn in, unless CD-24 can find a way to escape certain doom.
The game has three endings: a good one, a bad one, and a terrible one. Can you find them all?
