Intrepid explorer Bill wakes to find that all of his expedition colleagues are missing...

Alone, Bill must navigate his way through treacherous caverns to make it out alive. There are various items scattered throughout the caves which are essential for his escape. The only clue he starts with is a scrap from a colleague's notebook, which mentions a mysterious sign, broken into four pieces.
