An astronaut crashes on a barren planet; two of its crew went missing — a grim reality sets in as the protagonist realizes he is all alone on a deserted planet.

Lo and behold, an oxygen refilling station stands ominously against the endless backdrop of sand. Levels at maximum, you head on towards another point.
