You and your fellow comrades are aboard a high tech submarine, The SS Escape, somewhere in The Bering Sea off the coast of Alaska. On the way to your top secret mission, equipment begins to fail and the captain has to make an emergency ascent to the surface. Moments later, you feel a thunderous crash and everyone instantly gets the same panicked feeling… iceberg!
All around you emegency lights and alarms go off. The vessel has been wedged into the center of the ice. The captain calls to the engine room notifying you that all major equipment has gone dysfunctional as a result of the massive impact. Even worse, the defrosters are also down causing all of the escape hatches to be frozen shut. Since the radar is down, no other nearby ships will be able to find you and come to your rescue.
The cold is already setting in and oxygen is running low. You must find a way to repair the defrosters, make the hatches operational, and then you and your crew can go topside to use the few flares that you have aboard to signal the Cost Guard. You must hurry; you have only 60 minutes before all oxygen is completely depleted!
