What if we told you that this catastrophe had a different impact on our future, depending on which future we’re talking about? And what if we told you that you could go back in time to fix it all, stop this horrific event from happening, and hopefully save your tiny, personal universe?

Living without parents isn’t easy. You know that well. To the world you are Olena Ponomarenko – a successful Ukrainian scientist responsible for discovering time travel. But deep down, you’re an adult that desperately wants to see her parents again, to tell them how much she loves them. This is what drove all your scientific experiments. But the world doesn’t care about your idealistic motives. Mighty external political forces dream of restoring the old world order using you and your discoveries.
Even if that means leaving a trail of scorched earth and ending your life. Now it’s your call whether to follow their orders or find allies and attempt to thwart their evil plans. Just remember that in a world full of lies, mystery, and special interests, the only person you can trust is yourself.
