In Better Days of a Defender of the Universe you play Rob Blanc, a chip shop worker from England who has been selected from millions of bored but adventurous people to become an intergalactic hero. The High Ones, dwellers of the Higher Plain and auditors of all the known universe, have decided that the Evil in the galaxy has become too great, and they need a way to vanquish the hordes of Darkness. So they chose Rob as the most suitable candidate from the only neutral planet in the universe, Earth.
In this first chapter Rob must prove his worth by working out what happened to the Reman flagship Luminous which disappeared from radar a short time ago. Guide him through the deserted vessel and discover exactly what a horrible place the universe really is.
