Prey is a first-person shooter video game developed by Human
Head Studios and produced by 3D Realms.
The game's story is focused on Cherokee Domasi Tawodi as he,
his girlfriend, and grandfather are abducted aboard an alien spaceship
known as The Sphere as it consumes material, both inanimate and living,
from the Earth in order to sustain itself. Tommy's Cherokee past allows
him to let his spirit roam freely at times, and gives Tommy an edge in
his attempt to stop the Sphere.
You can use either the three CD-ROM version, the Collector's
Edition DVD-ROM, or a preinstalled copy of the Windows version, such as
downloaded from Steam.
The game has a Mature("M"): 17+ ESRB content rating.
