Here is an overview of the game’s story, via its official website:

Near future.

The never-ending sleep known as Randolph Syndrome has spread across the globe.

The cause appears to be a huge underground world that appeared in Antarctica.

Discovered inside was a group of strange organisms unlike those on the surface, as well as unknown resources.

To put an end to Randolph Syndrome, and to attain great wealth from the genetic information of those organisms and underground resources, humans put their lives on the line and go underground.
