The story of Dolmen may be comprehended as an investigation focusing the past and future of an alien planet as seen through the eyes of a human being. Although his original task was very different from that, he was brought to a place never seen before, with no resources and unprepared for what he will find there. Exploration and adaptability shall be used to bring him some truth behind what really happened to him.
That’s when the game begins. In a dark place, miles away from the surface of that strange planet, inside the caves which once were part of an evolved society. A society that doesn’t exist anymore. There’s just a lonely person, from the distant Earth, trying to be part of that place to survive it. He’s the only witness of what’s left of something he may never understand completely. But he must try or be part of its remains. There’s no option.
Since the history of the human race is based on evolution and the ability to endure suffering, maybe he will triumph against adversity. Or not.
