App description: Start an exciting and timeless journey between Naples, Pompeii and Ancient Egypt, spanning different historical periods.
The adventure takes off from the National Archaeological Museum in Naples, a cultural institution housing some of humanitys greatest artefacts and treasures.
What begins as the story of a son who never knew his father becomes a universal and ageless tale, with the present and the past making up the setting for Michaels travels. Seek for yourself the beauties of Naples, experience the last hours of life in Pompeii before Mount Vesuvius erupted in 79 AD, and explore the ordinary day-to-day life in Ancient Egypt. The past is what makes our present real.
Completion time: 50-60 minutes. Some sections are unlocked by checking in at the Archaeological Museum of Naples, publisher of the game.

This looks incredible. My type of game in every way. Attractive play length as well for this type of game. No filler, just delivering the feeling and narrative and getting the job done. Major Silent Age vibes. Can't wait to play it

This may be the most beautiful game I've ever played. Stopped frequently just to drink in the ambience, which it does spectacularly. The story is, uh... lacking? It's hampered somewhat by an understandable but sometimes unwieldy translation. And there's very little by way of resolution.

It's replaced a paywall with a geowall! There are certain features you can't access unless you're physically IN Naples, which is annoying but makes perfect sense. I don't think these are all that important, so it's more interesting than truly frustrating.

Well-recommended for the aesthetics alone; an hour is plenty of playtime for what it is; I'll probably play it through one more time and delete it.
