Set on Mars in a not-so-distant future, Moons of Madness mixes the scientific exploration of the red planet with the supernatural dread of Lovecraftian horror.
In Moons of Madness you play Shane Newehart, a technician stationed at the Invictus, a secret research base built by the Orochi group. Your low security clearance means you are completely unaware of the existence of a mysterious, intelligent signal that has been detected as coming from the red planet. Your job is simply to keep the lights on until the transport ship Cyrano arrives bringing with it a new team to take over your duties. Soon you discover strange and unusual setbacks. Crucial systems are malfunctioning, the greenhouse is filled with a strange mist and the rest of your team has yet to return from their EVA mission. You begin seeing and hearing things that aren t there. Visions, hallucinations or is that even what it is? Is this real... or are you slowly descending into madness?
Moons of Madness draws upon the rich lore and mythology of Funcom s Secret World Legends. Both games exist in the same thematic universe, but playing one is not a prerequisite to enjoy the other.
