In a room designed as a Soviet nuclear bunker, some Russians are trying to prevent a catastrophic attack on the United States.
Your task – the recent madness in Moscow – is to find the nuclear weapons launch codes and to deactivate a hidden red button that was already pressed by a crazy Russian general.
In the midst of current tensions with Russia, where the potential nuclear confrontation with the West has increased again, this is a little worrying.
"I'm worried because there is very stupid information from both sides," said Maxim Motin, a Russian who has just completed the Red Button Quest game.
"I know that normal people around the world don't want war," he added.
A nation preparing for conflict
But Russian officials have prepared the nation for the possibility of conflict and fueled deep concern about a conflict with the West, Russia's old Cold War rival.
Russian television broadcast a mass exercise involving up to 40 million people nationwide. It is said to prepare the response to a chemical or nuclear attack, the government said.
The video shows rescue workers wearing protective suits and gas masks at the dress rehearsal for civil defense, the largest of its kind since the collapse of the Soviet Union. The Kremlin wants the Russians to take the threat of war very seriously.
Of course, a conflict between Russia and the West is still highly unlikely.
Analysts say the principle of mutually secured destruction – or MAD – still acts as a deterrent, just like it did during the Cold War.
However, analysts believe that given the growing tensions in Syria, Ukraine and the Baltic States, the risk of contact, misunderstanding, and escalation between the nuclear superpowers has become very real.
"But if two nuclear superpowers are operating their military machines in the same area, very close to each other and not properly coordinated, anything can happen," he told CNN.
The Kremlin is playing out fears
It is a risk that the Kremlin appears to be willing to accept, as state television has intensified its harsh rhetoric in recent weeks.
At its leading trade show for topical affairs, top Russian news anchor Dmitry Kiselyev – described by critics as a Kremlin propagandist – recently warned of a clash of Russian and US forces in Syria.
"Brutal behavior towards Russia could have nuclear dimensions," he said.
The Russian Ministry of Defense has also released details of the latest ICBM that has been added to its nuclear arsenal.
It is an apocalyptic vision that adds another sense of realism to the fantasy quest performed by players in Moscow.
"I know they are now telling children in schools in Russia that our main enemy is the United States," said Alisa Sokoleva, another Moscow player.
"But it sounds ridiculous to me and I'm absolutely certain that war is impossible," she adds.
Back in the fake Cold War bunker, the Russian players cracked the start codes and deactivated the rocket launch. The United States appears to have been rescued from this virtual Russian nuclear attack.
Hopefully the real world will be spared such a confrontation.
