- Gnosia – In this adventure RPG, the crew of a drifting spaceship formulate a desperate plan for survival while facing off against a mysterious and deadly threat known as the Gnosia. The most suspicious among them will be put into cold sleep one by one in an effort to completely rid the ship of Gnosia. It’s almost impossible to tell whether each person put into cold sleep was really Gnosia or simply a poor, unfortunate scapegoat, sacrificed by the Gnosia for their own survival. Can the humans emerge victorious? Or is mankind doomed?
