You are taking a tour in the first research facility in the world to have successfully contained an alien.
An experience tour that was supposed to be safe - Up until the emergency alarm blared.
"Emergency alert! The alien has regained consciousness and is on rampage!
All personnel must evacuate the facility immediately!"
On the other side of the screen, you hear an ear-piercing cry and sounds of something heavy thrashing around.
Just when the situation seems dire, a single transmission comes through -
"This is Ridley! Can anyone hear me?!"
A glimmer of hope flashes in the form of a transmission system!
Can you cooperate with Ridley and stop the alien before it destroys the research facility?

A well crafted little adventure, mostly audio-led but with some other sections. They do a good job of mitigating some of the SCRAP design quirks and making things fun.

If you've played SCRAP's previous live games before and found them a bit wanting, throw away most of those preconceived notions.  This one is more than just audio -- it uses a combination of canned video and live video in sections, and you only need a little bit of suspension of disbelief to make the immersion work.  The puzzles (at least, with the time constraint) are also significantly more challenging, so don't feel too bad if you end up not getting the best ending.

Rarely has my opinion of a game varied so much through the course of playing it. A third of the way in, Alien Research had almost completely lost my interest; and yet thereafter it improved to a degree that managed to substantially eclipse the earlier frustrations.
This is an actor led game that doesn’t involve an avatar. Your surroundings, a space station terrorised by an escaped alien life form, are evoked primarily by audio descriptions, but also includes video footage and some more interact...
