Sometimes Things Are Never What They
An Ancient War... A Terrible
A young man wakes in a cryogenic sleeper pod aboard a space
station orbiting a desolate world. A recording left two hundred years before
tells him that he caused the desolation below, and that now he is to be
punished for his crime. The derelict station is to be his prison and his tomb.
In sixteen days it will fall from orbit.
A Traitor's Fate...
The problem is, Sen remembers
none of it. If he's to be punished, why take the memory of his crime? It
doesn't make sense. But before the recording can reveal more, even what the
second part of his punishment is to be, the recorder is destroyed.
The planet below was once a
thriving, highly advanced world enjoying the wonders of a golden age. But when
an alien spaceship entered its system, factions formed - those wanting to make
contact with the alien vessel and those who didn't. A devastating global war
All Sen knows is that a single valley has survived the
devastation. Now he must find a way to reach it. These are his people - or are
they? What might they have become after two hundred years? But the station is
about to fall. There is no other choice.
A Single Valley...
Assume the role of Sen as he
struggles to escape his prison and return to the strange new world that was
once his home. Join him as he uses 'Chameleon' technology to impersonate
members of the two feuding tribes he finds there and go safely among them.
Discover what really happened all those years ago and help bring hostilities to
a truly surprising conclusion. Join Sen and discover the truth.

Just Adventure by Red Egnes
"...Schizm 2 has been quite a journey. If this game was a
holiday, it'd be rock-climbing in Macchu Picchu - stunning scenery... but a
difficult climb to the top!"
"...If you want the best 3D graphics the Adventure genre can
offer, then this is your game. It's definitely not for the casual gamer, but if
you have an appreciation of difficult puzzles and want some meat to their bones
in terms of story, then this is your game."
