"Stand Humans, Your Final Battle Has Begun"

Seven students from the The University of Salford have undertaken an ambitious project to create a total conversion of Far Cry.

First Contact: Planetfall is a First Person Sci-Fi action adventure game dropping players into a fully realised alien world teeming with strange creatures and threatening alien enemies.
Players must survive in this hostile alien environment while discovering a secret plot, buried beneath the surface of the planet that could spell the end of the human race.

The Shark in a Cube Mod team includes Will Evans, Toby Everett, Mike Bird, Mike Roberts, Jenny Rathbone, Martin Palmer and James Boorer.

The Team took 6 months to produce the mod. creating new game mechanics, adding fresh graphical effects and producing huge amounts of custom made content to transform the tropical far cry into the alien world of Hestia for First Contact: Planet Fall!!!
