You will meet and lead three characters, each with his or her own story, serving as a game protagonists. It is up to you to decide, whether to get involved with people around you and look for allies, or just keep your head down and assault The Wall. But whatever you do, remember: there will be consequences, whether you like it or not.

In the second phase, you will get your hands dirty during your plan preparation and execution. Talk to people, ask them for help, bribe or trick them. Craft things, steal things or buy them with the most valuable currency in a communist state: favors. And finally, during escape: climb, dig, jump – just get to the West side of The Wall.
