Murkoff Trials

Survive the Murkoff trials alone or with friends in a four person team. Abducted and taken to a shadowy human testing Murkoff facility, you will be tormented, both physically and mentally. Looking to alter human behavior during the height of the Cold War, the screams of other test subjects will rip through the building. The leading lady of the trials expresses zero emotion as they incapacitate people in their search for personality overrides.
