User Summary: You play a researcher in a genetic engineering project in a remote region of Siberia. A series of strange events leads you into a sinister mystery....
Guillermo's Thoughts: (review based on the Spanish translation)

This is another superbly written Storytrails book, combining elements of the science fiction, horror and mystery genres. The book is very atmospheric and thus a worthwhile read, plus the references to genetic engineering ought to have resonance with today's readers. Gameplay, however, suffers because most of the choices are rather obvious. For this reason, I consider it to be good but not great.
