First announced in January 2014, the gripping casual adventure is now available from German publisher astragon Software via digital download for PC, Android™ tablets and iPad®.
Follow Sarah Hamilton, investigative reporter for the magazine “Facts & Fancy”, to the world famous Neuschwanstein Castle, popular tourist attraction and last home of the doomed fairy tale king Ludwig II of Bavaria. Together with her newfound acquaintance, the criminologist Professor Wolfgang Adler, she will undertake a dangerous quest for the truth behind one of Germany’s most high-profile cold cases:
Since the mysterious death of king Ludwig II. in 1886 by drowning in the shallows of Lake Starnberg alongside his psychiatrist, doctor Bernhard von Gudden, various rumors have been circulating around Ludwig’s last days: Was the king indeed insane and his death a murder-suicide as the official sources claim? Or was he killed by an unknown foe? And who profited from his Majesty’s untimely demise?
Countless challenging puzzles, brain teasers and hidden object scenes await the virtual detective on his search for the truth behind the 128 year old crime, which will lead him through beautiful hand-drawn locations both within the famous castle and its breathtaking surroundings.
