In RESEARCH and DESTROY you play as a trio of Super Scientists named Larry, Gary and Marie. You’re free to rename them, but for now let’s go with these.

This opened the door for the Supernatural, who swooped into this world, killed all the humans, and settled down to live happily ever after.

RESEARCH and DESTROY takes place in a world where Supernatural creatures have crushed humanity. However, some people were smart enough to go (literally) underground during those dark times and teach their children the only thing that might restore humanity someday–science!

Generations later, a trio of Super Scientists emerge from the underground bunker with their RADvan. Having learnt everything they can from their old science books, they’re hungry for knowledge with a craving for some intense field work.
