How It Begins
You have travelled to an unidentified country; the opening paragraph describes its beautiful scenery. Currently, however, you're in a near-featureless dead-end alley, facing a plain metal door. The PC is ambiguous, and carrying nothing of importance.
- Heavy and innovative use of flashback, frame story and unreliable narrator.
- Intentionally employs knowledge conflict for dramatic effect.
