Your name is Octavia, and you lived almost 2000 years ago. These days, you just float through the dead city, unable to see the tourists, but only shadows of those who lived long ago. Soon, you’ll start reliving the last day of your life. Stuck in a loop, you go through your last hours again and again. But you always forget afterwards and then live those tragic moments as if for the first time. It’s almost midday, the eruption will begin and you’ll have to escape the melting Pompeii once more!
