- The game begins with a brief flashforward. You are Lieutenant James Corby, 25 years old, and about to drown somewhere in the stormy Bay of Biscay in the year 1805. Then the game proper begins a few moments earlier.
It's just a little detail, but I'd rather say that the very beginning isn't a flashforward: it's the scene on the ship which is a flashback, because it's in past tense (including responses to player input) whereas the rest of the game is in present tense, including the very beginning.
