In hindsight, it was always a terrible idea. A hot-air balloon ride across the sea? How else was this going to end?
That didn’t stop our little group from hopping in the basket and lifting off into the sky. After all, the company, “Balloons ‘R Us,” guaranteed the adventure of a lifetime or all money back. How could anyone turn it down? Certainly not our heroes Chad, Beans, Emma, Bobby, and Tina, all of whom were eager to set off and see the world.
Now this group of five strangers wash up on the shores of this mysterious island, devoid of food, fresh water, or phones. The hot-air balloon captain vanished beneath the waves, taking with him their only sense of direction. They only have their wits and the unbelievable lucky coincidence that none of them were injured.
After banding together and assessing their situation, they walk along the shore, attempting to get their bearings. That’s when they stumble upon a horrifying sight: a gigantic crab claw, roughly the size of a human being. The appendage was torn off the body, shreds of meat hanging out of the ruined end, which exudes a horrendous stench.
So many questions. Where is the rest of it? Why is it so big? What does it eat? And worst of all, what was big enough to rip the damn thing off its body?
The group looks around at the rest of the giant, lush island, suddenly realizing they might be in more trouble than they originally thought. Off in the distance, all manner of sounds, both recognizable and foreign, fill the air.
Staying on the beach isn’t an option, unfortunately, as a storm similar to the one that grounded them threatens to roll in. It’s time to enter the island proper and discover its many mysteries!
