Storyline

You are Eladora, a twelve years old witch who loves to make potions, watch the old Indiana Jones movies, and fly on her broom at night. 

You just returned from the Academy of Magic in Egypt to spend summer at home with your family, but something seems odd in your town. It looks like they’ve all forgotten who you are. In fact, they seem to believe witches and wizards are entirely imaginary! 

You need to investigate quickly and find the cause of this enchantment that took over your beloved city.
