Odd things are happening in Cambridge. Funny flags are exposed on buildings, bicycles' lockers are swapped around and tourists are stolen their caps while they take pictures of King's Chapel. Who's having fun messing around with the town? Rumours are, the soul of someone who had to do with a forgotten College, All Souls.

You, the Cambridgeshire-famous detective Oakley Clueless, were hired to solve the mystery and bring back peace and caps to the town.
