The player will play the character of Andreas Maler, a very talented artist who becomes involved in a series of murders and scandals which lasts for twenty-five years within the fictional city of Tasting in the vicinity of Kiersau Abbey.

“It is your decision to make Andreas his choices, ranging from his education and his lifestyle to the method he uses to investigate the murders that occur within his reach.

From getting into the abbey library late at night to glance at hidden documents, or playing a game of traditional tavern game to gather details from those playing and it’s your responsibility to decide how you will use the time you have to find the suspects.

“Every decision and accusation Andreas makes carries consequences that will impact the tightly-knit Alpine community for generations to come.”
