Description

This is a horror adventure game for young gamers (ages 8-15 or so) in which players can choose to play as either a boy or girl, though the game is still the same either way. When the game starts, the protagonist is reading a boring story about Baron Saturday, an evil voodoo spirit captain that's turned his entire crew into mindless zombies and is taking them to the Island of Lost Souls.

The protagonist falls asleep and is transported onto Saturday's ship, where (s)he meets the Captain's butler who needs their help. He asks the protagonist to save all the other lost souls, spirits, and zombies who are trapped on the ship. Throughout the game, the butler will provide the player with clues as he keeps getting trapped.
