In the late 1910s, the world was struck by a terrible disaster. For two decades, alcoholic beverages were suddenly forbidden in all of Canada and the United States of America! 

All of it? No. 

In this era of Prohibition, Montréal became a true oasis for the parched continent, welcoming all of its pleasures... and vices.

Through the foggy lenses of John Doe, a man who just woke up from a hundred years drunken stupor, discover the exciting Prohibition Era and its legacies for the city of Montréal!

Light goes through your retinas. Foggy, blurry light. Are those… cherry trees? The branches mix with flashes of liquors of all sorts.

As you stumble up, something in your pocket bothers you. (Take out your wallet, look at your cards.) 

Who’s that? Could you have taken the wrong jacket?

Oh oh – you’ve been with dangerous people lately. Friends of Al Capone and Conrad Labelle. What if it’s theirs? Oh no, no… OK. Just remember the place, drop the jacket incognito, and you may live another day! Think!
