Antarctica, 1982 - US Outpost #31

Dropped off at a research station, twelve men have been commissioned to gather physical and natural science data. With the winter fast closing in they will be isolated for the next 6 months, as the darkness descends in this desolate southern polar region. The temperatures plummet and the weather at its most severe.

Imagine their excitement as they uncover the find of the century. Actually the find of a thousand centuries! But then the outpost is gripped by a series of escalating, horrific incidences.

If only they could put it back...
