About the Story

You are Duke Alaric Blackmoon and since your return from the Marienburg Fortress (see "The Fortress of Fear"), you have settled down to a more peaceful life as Duke of the duchy of Charlton in the kingdom of Hecate.

Then, just as things had started to get a bit too routine and humdrum again, you start to get reports of strange goings-on in some of the more remote villages in Hecate - children between the ages of 11 and 15 have started to go missing at night, apparently kidnapped from their beds without a struggle.

Remake of The Lost Children, by Larry Horsfield

Editorial Reviews

Delron
Review compilation
In this game Alaric must investigate the disappearance of several children in Hecate where Alaric is duke. The investigation leads to a megalith with a magical gateway, which leads to another place far from Hecate. Alaric goes through this gateway in the prologue and once on the other side, the game begins.

Without revealing too much of the story, Alaric must investigate this new area, where he will befriend some characters and he will need to equip himself for the final encounter with those responsible for the lost children. And hopefully he will save the children in the end.
