    Play as a team of UPA agents in a squad based shooter puzzler. Your squad is tasked with investigating the machinery failures in the underground that power the rich aboveground life. Each of the four characters have their own abilties and weapons. Use them wisely or perish against cultists, gang-bangers and mutants.

    Conclusion:
    Project Eden ran perfectly from the first try on my GeForce GTX 1060. I was able to adjust the graphics settings in game to high and 1920x1080. Everything ran perfectly. Its actually an interesting puzzle shooter where you have to swap between characters in the group to achieve goals.
