Storyline

You have been possessed by the spirit of Georg, a 15th-century German alchemist who needs you to renew his immortality spell. He will guide you in doing this. But, he may also try to satisfy a few cravings along the way. You see, Georg loves pastries, sausages, and other rich foods, so he likes to indulge in them while “embodied.” If you re-cast his spell, you’ll be free of him; if you fail to do so, you could be stuck with him for good. But you can do this, right? So let’s go!
