In Dead Space, you take on the role of a space engineer by the name of Isaac Clarke. You have been sent out to aid in repairing the mining vessel USG Ishimura, which has mysteriously gone quiet. One he boards the Ishimura, he relies that he's in a worldwind of trouble. All the crew is dead and the ship is overrun by hordes of alien creatures.
