This has to be one of the strangest days – and nights – of your life. A dream kept haunting you: desperate creatures, spooking you, trapped in your mind.

You couldn't resist following their call; it drew you here like a magical force.

This is the start of an adventure that will lead you through the magical park of Villa Borghese. 

YOU have been chosen to save the Sad Souls!

Played with a group of friends and we enjoyed it a lot! Some riddles are a bit more challenging, but that makes it even better actually! Would absolutely recommend
