Storyline

You are a Polish 18-year-old on a mission to piece together the story of your great-grandfather, a heroic resistance fighter in Paris during WW2! Your family has always found it too painful to talk about the war, but you are dying to know what happened. Armed with his old, half-ruined scrapbook, you set off in search of answers. All you know is that he helped to save Paris at the end of the war, then never spoke about it again.

The game was fantastic, it takes you to some of the most famous landmarks of the city and tells you very interesting and different stories! We really enjoyed the challenges and the walk around the city 🤗

Not too bad. very interesting story, and the history was fascinating. one clue was complete nonsense though, and as that was early on it soured the rest. (construction works and police cordons threw off a lot of the directions, so some more explicit signposting would be helpful)
