“Captain Laser, a famous hero of space battles, is once again invaded by vicious monsters… he fights them off, protecting all the passengers and starship crew,” says Stanislav Stepchenko, a producer at Cheerdealers.
“There’s something different about this battle, though; it just doesn’t feel the same to him; there is more than meets the eye…
“As the narrative continues, he will soon learn the true nature of these monsters, thus revealing hidden secrets about the other passengers.”
