In 2027, a satellite monitoring deep space communications picks up a foreign signal. A foreign signal that gives up a set of coordinates, leading to a particularly intriguing, and reachable, planet.
As global enthusiasm and hope rises, an international space program is formed - named CFISP - and with it a global effort to uncover this new unknown.
CFISP grows in size and power until they are able to send a crew to the coordinates. This mission is dubbed ‘Persephone 1’ and is celebrated for its success, years in the making. But something goes wrong planet-side and the crew disappears with no warning – or any clues as to where they’ve gone.
The Persephone Program follows a CFISP employee, a simulation technician responsible for running complex code in order to predict specific events. The technician proposes an idea following the crew's disappearance – use the gathered data on the Persephone 1 crew in order to program a detailed simulation to discover what happened.
With this ability and the combined strength of CFISP behind them, the technician delves deep within this space mystery adventure to piece together what happened on this planet so far away from home.
