In the science-fiction game Grey Zone, you play as Valern, the slave of a corrupt government on a colonized planet. Your goal is to visit other planets colonized by these governing bodies, and lead your heroes to attain story objectives. This game features 2-dimensional art and comics in order to showcase the storyline between missions, and even has its own orchestral soundtrack that uses electronic sounds to convey the sci-fi feel of the world of the game.

Finally, according to the press release put out by EastWorks, "As the development of Gray Zone progresses, mission 7 and Skirmish will be integrated into the current chapter of the game. 3 additional chapters will be released as standalone, episodic game content."
