Beacon follows the journey of interstellar mercenary Freja Akiyama, stuck in an endless search for her distress beacon after crash landing onto an unknown planet. With her Clone Bay stuck in an automatic printing cycle, death is only a minor setback. Each life you'll not only find weapons and items to help you; you'll also be collecting DNA from the enemies you defeat. After your inevitable death you're given the opportunity to alter your genome, allowing you to change your statistics and gain gameplay-altering physical mutations for your next clone's life.
In the search for your Beacon, new questions arise; just how many clones of Freja are there? How long has she been stuck in an infinite cycle of survival? How much of her humanity will be sacrificed before escaping?
