Step into the mystifying realm of Birmingham, a city in turmoil just like your own troubled soul. 

As you arrive at New Street Station, an icy chill pierces the air, accompanied by strange whispers and hushed laughter. You feel an overwhelming sense of loneliness, craving comfort and company, but something tells you these sounds aren't friendly. A heavy darkness weighs upon you, making it hard to catch your breath.

Glimmering lights dance in the darkness, beckoning your attention. You try to reach out to a sobbing figure on a bench, but your hand passes through as they weep into their hands. A well-dressed gentleman from the past glides through you, murmuring that peace can only be found when the souls of the city's deceased workers are put to rest.

Time is running out, and you must act swiftly to free the trapped spirits before you vanish completely. The clock is ticking, and your mission is to bring solace to these restless souls and, in turn, find salvation for yourself.
