How It Begins

A title screen offers the player options to display the help menu, start or restore the game, or quit.

It's June 23rd, 1896. You're a stage magician at centre-stage at The Carthaginian Theatre and resplendent in your top hat and black jacket, the latter which contains a white handkerchief. The curtain has just lifted to reveal an applauding paid audience eager for a display of magic. You are caught in the blinding spotlights, frightened beyond belief, with nothing near you but an empty baize table.
