How It Begins

The game begins with an obviously fake Nostradamus quote, which predicts that aliens will be up to no good at the top of a tall construction in France. Strangely enough, this prediction is coming true.

You are a penniless drifter, carrying nothing, who has come to Paris to stop the aliens' scheme, whatever it is. You start at the base of the Eiffel Tower, stairs leading up.

(CAUTION: Some mildly vulgar language.)
