Official description

Join Sylvester "Sly" Boots and Stiletto as they trek across the galaxy and the three dimensions, looking for both a long-dead alien race with the secrets of advanced technology, and the mysterious forces bent on crushing our universe out of existence!

Are they the same beings? Five other characters join them in their quest to uncover the mystery of the Mystech devices, the plot to destroy our existence, and the evil chaos behind it all.

Features:
* Search through hundreds of locations and fight tons of contextual enemies in your quest to find the truth behind the impending galactic calamity!
* Immerse yourself in the most detailed, interactive, thrilling epic ever made, as you talk to hundreds of creatures, make critical decisions, control vehicles and machinery, and play fun mini-games!
* Features an exciting turn-based, real-time battle system -- where your interactions with the surroundings are just as important as how you use your weaponry!
* Features an epic story line with endless surprises and a roller coaster of emotions!
* Make your own weapons with the modular Elementor weapon system featuring over 250 MILLION possible combinations!
* Includes a "KidInstall" feature allowing parents to remove mature content, so everyone can play!

RPG from Ion Storm designed by Tom Hall. This game is reportedly more inspired by console RPGs than traditional PC RPGs. It uses the Quake II engine, but from a third-person perspective.
