But it's good to know that you're not completely alone in your quest. Periodically you can enlist the help of some of your fellow humans...
Barneys - These security guards are your friends. Tap them on the shoulder and they'll follow you around and around, wherever you go, fighting monsters that attack you on the way. Named for their resemblance to Barney Fife of Andy Griffith fame, Barneys may not be bright but they're awfully handy.
Scientists - They're cowards. There's no doubt about it. Fire a gun anywhere near a scientist and he'll get a terrified look on his face and start screaming. (You're the only brave one of the bunch.) But however annoying they may be, it's just not a good idea to shoot the scientists. You can get through the game without them, but if you keep them alive, you just might find that they know a lot of useful information - about opening locked doors, for instance.
There are literally dozens more monsters and characters, some of them still being developed, others just getting tweaks. A couple that will be worth watching for are the female scientist (there are a few women in the game) and the female assassin, one of the toughest characters - she's loaded with weapons and AI.
