You are an alleged witch whose soul can’t rest.

You wake up on a bench feeling dizzy. You face the road, then you turn left and walk. The moment you see the Sankt Maria Magdalena and Lazarus Chapel on your left, you gasp and experience a blackout.

When you recover, your body is on fire. You are in pain, and you have no clue who you are. You turn around to see twenty-four females, all of them burning like you, facing you. One feels familiar. She whispers: ‘Find him and free us!’

Clue 10: Ridiculous answer, it didn't make sense. Clue 11: Inaccessible due to building works. As walking tours go, it was alright. Not the best nor the worst.

Anfangs kompliziert sich anzumelden. Momentan leider Baustelle am Rathaus, sodass man die Route eigenständig ändern muss. Ansonsten eine Super Idee. So kommt man an Orte in Köln, die man sonst als Tourist nicht besuchen würde.

jammer dat de code niet 2 dagen geldig blijft. wij zijn er een beetje te laat aan begonnen en dan in de helft van het spel moeten terug keren omdat het te donker werd. heel leuk spel voor de rest en ideaal om de stad zowat te verkennen
