How It Begins

After a quote from a bolero and another one from Emma Goldman, the game opens with the player and a companion, Claudio, arriving at a jet set party in the "Republic of Puerto Duquesa" in 1958.

The player is Salomé Vélez, "the vanished great ex-vedette of the Enjoyado Club, in her latest comeback as not-that-great third-line corista at the Casino del Ritmo! Some would say you're a bit faded, but that's just bitter ex-lovers." She´s wearing an emerald gown, evening gloves and pumps, and she carries a clutch purse.

The player has to help Claudio infiltrate the party. She needs to find an invitation in order to get through the door, and once inside, help Clauudio accomplish his secret mission in the mansion. Most of the game takes place during that night and within the mansion, with a few long, fully playable flashbacks that explain parts of Salomé´s past, as the espionage and political plot unravels.

It has 6 different "good" endings.
