With Paula returning to Gluttire University for the conclusion of her saga, her story takes an unexpected turn. We are now forced to visit Perpetuum Penitentiary once again. The prison remains much the same. However, with the outbreak of Covid-19, life is even more insufferable than before.
The government has overtaken operations to control the deadly outbreak. They have now implemented unethical and heinous treatment methods to control the growing population.
You will enter this toxic facility as a guest. However, behind the walls of Perpetuum Penitentiary, we are ALL prisoners. And COVID-19 has now added a thick layer of unease and discomfort to your visit.
For our Paula, there is nothing but endless suffering and despair. For you, the visitor, your only job is to survive.
