How It Begins
You play a teenage girl, brought to a run-down motor court in the Deep South of the USA by your aunt, who is acting mysteriously. Aunt Caroline has shut herself in the bathroom. You are in the somewhat dilapidated Cabin Five at the Eternal Springs resort, carrying nothing and wearing clothes. Before long you'll meet the fat, slimy proprietor, Beauregard Phelps, and a varied cast of characters who have gathered at Eternal Springs for reasons that aren't initially clear.
