DescriptionCenturies ago, two dozen men were carefully chosen to become immortal, each possessing different qualities which would lead the world into a future free of strife, hunger and oppression. Combining science and the technology of clock making of the time, the Watchmaker devised a formula to take his plan to fruition - and it came to pass. Through hundreds of years, the immortals, rather than becoming the virtuous mentors the Watchmaker had envisioned, succumbed to the hunger for global power. The secret to stopping their lust and greed, and saving the world from them, lies deep inside the 18th century Austrian castle.
This is where you come in. You are dropped inside the castle to find the Watchmaker's ancient clock. Explore the castle and its surrounding gardens; find hidden rooms and passageways; interrogate the castle's current residents; dig through the old records; and solve ancient puzzles.
Incorporating both 1st and 3rd person perspectives and 3D rendered scenery, switch between your two characters within the game - Darrel Boone, a former Scotland Yard consultant specializing in the paranormal, and Victoria Conroy, and young attorney. Besides being a mouse-drive "point-and-click" adventure, extensive use of the keyboard is also required.
