From the post:
My eyes strain both from the combative effort to write this missive by flickering candlelight, and from the exhaustive weariness of long days. I am in desperate need of rest, but fear of losing this malignant contest drives me on. By day, I must traverse through Parisian life as if aught is well, but only the sweet shadows of night can provide the cover required to safely conduct my work. My flesh cries out for want of respite, but my labors cannot cease, for I know, should I fail and another emerge victorious, that more than my health shall be forfeit.
You are locked in a contest brought forth by a mysterious benefactor. The purpose of this execrable competition is to wield the research of the late Victor Frankenstein, and use it to create life. The winner of this contest will emerge with unparalleled knowledge and mastery over medical science. The losers? Well, it is best not to dwell on such unfortunates...
Players can choose between six exceedingly talented, if not frightfully amoral scientists. Each character possesses different abilities which will prove crucial in scoring the victory points needed to determine the ultimate winner at game's end.
