Legend has it that if Guimarães fell into the hands of the five Moorish kings, the rivers would flood the city until it sank into the ocean. Today, five of the descendants of the kings have unwittingly arrived in Guimarães, and the curse has been triggered. 
Realising this, you embark on a mission to save the city. You must travel to historical locations piecing together clues to stop the curse before it’s too late, and the city is doomed to the depths of the sea forever.
