The story tasks the player with rescuing Project Lumi, a system that is under a vicious viral attack on the Eden system. It’s a simple enough story to propel you through the five short levels in the game. You see, this game isn’t about telling you some kind of compelling storyline. It is literally about basking in the ambiance of each of the individual worlds you’ll battle through."
