You are Don Quixote, the quirky and eccentric character from the world-famous novel Don Quixote de la Mancha. Somehow you find yourself in the current times of central Madrid without your horse Rocinante, trusty squire Sancho, or your lovely lady Dulcinea.

You set out to find the man who created you all -the famous Spanish novelist Miguel de Cervantes- to get some answers, so you can be reunited with them once again.

Be wary of who you may meet along the way, for in the mind of a crazed dreamer, sometimes things aren’t always as they seem…
