The town has a unique investigation with ships loaded with goods that once they leave port are later found adrift and abandoned with no crew or cargo onboard. Upon arrival at Port Providence the local authorities talk of a curse that is decades old. The story also includes some haunting tale of a fire that an entire family perished in long ago. Skeptical from the folk lore you take the case and begin by examining one of the recent abandoned ships that was brought back to harbor. The ship review is quickly interrupted when you encounter a hooked figure that clearly wants to prevent your investigation and eliminate you.

The game interface mechanics provide a hybrid approach of graphical adventure with on screen movement touch points, puzzles and hidden-object search style game play. Objects collected in inventory at the bottom of the screen require the player to drop or drag them onto other items in the scenes to activate or complete needed tasks for progression. Hidden object scenes are somewhat traditional with word objects at the bottom. Some scene objects must be opened, moved or used to finally reveal the object to be found. Objects requiring this function are listed in a gray colored text.
