Creature Shock was developed by Argonaut Games and released in 1994. The game is a simulation in a space ship flying through a linear environment follwed by a first person action/adventure.
"It is the year 2123 and the massive over population of the Earth has forced the human race to investigate the colonisation of other planets. To this endthe Tribal Class survey ships were constructed and each dispatched with its own mission to find mankind a new home."
You get the picture; anyway one of these ships (The Amazon) does not report in on time and it's your job to take your Lynx FTL Scoutship and find out what if anything has gone wrong.
