The game lets players experience a murder mystery adventure set in the future. In particular, players take on the role of an interstellar police who's investigating a triple homicide that looked to be politically motivated. The title, The Callisto, refers to the hotel on the Jovian moon where the murder occurred. In the game, players look over the crime scene, collect evidence, and even interview witnesses remotely.

The Callisto is based on the lore of the 2017 tabletop RPG known as Cold Start. It offers the puzzles of an escape room, combined with an interactive storyline. The dynamic puzzle system ensures that each playthrough is unique.
