The man is being accused of destroying sacred places for his own profit. Thus nobody seem to be surprised when his holiday chalet in the mountains gets devastated. Hamilton realizes it is high time he took the initiative and hires a war veteran and private detective called Carl Faubert (the protagonist). However, when the detective arrives to meet Hamilton, he discovers that not only did the employer disappear, but so happened to the entire local community. From now on, his task is to get to the bottom of this case.

Gameplay
