Excerpt from Kerl von der Kiste's "Pre-Imperial Religion: Mythology of the Solar League" :
In 9185, archaeologists uncovered foundations at the site suggesting that it was once a small, but very tall pyramid with a single window at the top and no apparent means of entrance or exit. Though it was long assumed to be an oubliette for heretics and apostates, scholars citing rediscovered texts suggest that it was in fact a devotional chamber or shrine to Suk'innr, the ancient god of harvest.

A willing acolyte lived in the shrine to received divine gifts, portioned out at the god's leisure. Periodically, an artifact would appear (of which no physical specimens have been recovered) and after touching it, the devotee would be rewarded with the flickering of illuminated etchings while a groove on the northern wall was filled with luminescent liquid. Scholars still hotly debate such a shrine's existence, wondering how anyone would ever willingly live in such a chamber.

Quite impressive, really moody game, loved the sound effects and the way it immerses the player.
Could not finish or advance that much in the game.

Looks cool, but kind of repetitive, and the mouse look is too sensitive.

Interesting game. I gave up after the sun passing through middle and being around 10/2200, because it seems the game had no actual goal. But nice immersive atmosphere!
