Similar to a role-playing game, each user decides to begin a mission contract with either Primatech or Pinehearst. Each week, a new chapter is released for both the Primatech and Pinehearst sides, and players can choose to play one side or the other or both. The missions are entirely text based with a button to choose an action at the bottom of each scene. Occasionally, there may be video segments to watch and other tasks to perform off the NBC site. If a person chooses the wrong action and dies or gets captured, that person is returned to the beginning of the story and can begin again. No registration is required to participate.
