Loky, a local student, was murdered by The Pusher, a serial killer who prowls the canals of Manchester.

From beyond the pale, Loky's ghost discovered something about The Pusher beyond anyone's imagining. All the while, the Pusher continues his murder spree around the twilit canals of Manchester.

Loky has sent out a chain letter to a random address. Your address.

You can help release the ghosts of The Pusher’s victims. Without them, The Pusher will lose his power and will disappear. I won't deny that it's dangerous, but many souls are at stake!

Would probably enjoy it more a second go. Learnt quite a bit and found places. Map is useless ( can't zoom in ) Canal access would of been impossible with pram. Reading story in busy place quite tricky. Actually met landlord of pub for quest (he didn't know ) Tram map needed.
