You enter a mysterious and expansive graveyard - it should be quiet and somber, but you find it surprisingly full of activity. A hunchback and a gravedigger are collecting body parts, a witch is seeking out special ingredients, and several ghosts beckon to you as you pass. As you’re drawn into one story or another, you eventually learn all these events are surprisingly connected - and leading to a final fateful decision you must make. Will the evening end in triumph or doom - in end it all depends on you.
