You interact with the world by walking around, talking to people, and making choices about your conversations. This, together with items you find and events you overhear, slowly uncover a murder. You play through limited time each day, as depicted by the large dial that moves you through Matins, Lauds, Prime, Terce and the other canonical hours.
But rather than offering a single plot to uncover, the game focuses on character development and choice-driven storytelling. In fact, you soon discover that you are caught up in a whole series of murders over twenty five years. Only you can solve these crimes, but each decision has lasting consequences and draws you closer to the underlying conspiracy.
