However, the morning before the exhibition, you find an unknown cloaked figure enchanting the art sculptures, shrinking and shoving them into a suitcase.

Will you be able to catch him and recover the art sculptures before the exhibition starts later that evening?

The quest allowed me to see a town I know well in a whole new way. We found a lot of hidden gems along the path. The well-thought-out story made the experience multidimensional.
