However, the morning before the exhibition, you find an unknown cloaked figure enchanting the art sculptures, shrinking and shoving them into a suitcase.

Before you could respond, he sees you and hastily runs out of the art museum. You bolt after him without hesitation.

Will you be able to catch him and recover the art sculptures before the exhibition starts later that evening?

Photos are sometimes upside down. Some directions can possibly be misinterpreted - please review. Story and route is interesting and fun! Playing time is just the right length - longer would have been too much.
