You are a time-traveling architect from the year 7076.

Every year, architects time-travel to different historical periods of Rotterdam to explore the city’s ever-changing architectural landscape. 

Just when you and your team arrived in contemporary Rotterdam, the time-portal through which you traveled crashed – a group of anti-time-travel hacktivists from 7076 disabled it! 

Now you only have a couple of hours to retrieve the password for a different time-portal and make it back to 7076 as the anti-time-travel hacktivists threaten to disable all the time-portals in the city!
