Among the dark and twisted canals of Manchester, an infamous serial killer known as The Pusher lurks in the shadows. 

Loky, a young student, fell victim to this murderer and now exists as a restless ghost seeking revenge. However, Loky has uncovered a shocking secret about The Pusher—one that could bring The Pusher's rampage to a permanent end. 

Now, a mysterious chain letter has arrived at your doorstep, calling on you to join the fight against this deadly foe. Will you help release the souls of The Pusher's victims and put an end to his reign of terror once and for all? 

The stakes are high and the danger is real, but the reward for succeeding is beyond measure: your life.
