You are Catherine Dubont. The Laser Drill opened a cavern 10 miles beyond the surface of the earth. They installed an elevator which you and some others took to go down all the way into the world of the unknown. As you almost reached the bottom of the drill hole, the elevator rope broke and the cabin dropped down the last 100 feet. Everyone is dead. All lights are gone. The only thing you have left is your modern sonar scanner.

I have Geforce GTX 560 Ti with Xtreme-G nVidia drivers version 304.48.

In system logs, there's this:

Hehe, shared that forum post below when I was at work earlier and hadn't time to actually read that forum post. The problem seems not to be on your side but on mine. I'll try to fix that issue and let you know!

It's the kernel32.dll which crashes because of the broken 32-Bit compability mode. Here is a guide how to fix this problem I just found on the internet:

I never used Windows Vista so I cannot really say if this helps...

Nevertheless I see you are running version 1.0 of Sonar, which makes sense, because you are running the demo ;) You can download v1.2 on indievania for free, try that version and spend money later in case you liked it ;)

Hope that helps.

I fixed that bug and will publish the new version of the game within the next days!

Wow, great! Thanks a lot for your effort :)

No big deal :)

You could do me a favor and download the new version of the game from indievania (PWYW) and test, if the bugfix really works ;) If you say "yes" I would publish it on Desura, IndieCity and Playism, too.
