Synopsis:
Once upon a time, there was a poor boy named Hans who lived with his mother near the woods. On his birthday, the boy had no presents nor sweets. He got so upset he decided to leave home for good. Before he left, his mother gave him his grandfather's cane, some cheese and three pieces of gold. Hans walked into the forest in search of adventure. Soon it was night and the boy was really scared, so he tried to go back. But then, a quaint kobold happened to cross his path and Hans decided to follow him to a castle. The kobold told him he would inherit great wealth if he passed a simple trial... guessing his name. Trapped in the castle, Hans will live a spooky mystery, fantasy and horror adventure to become the new Count Lucanor.

  5. I was wondering if this game is linked in some way to the spanish book "The Count Lucanor". I have not played it, I'm thinking about buying it, but I would like to know if the book and this game are linked in some point. Thanks :).

  6. Hi, there are some small connections between them. But this game is not a adaptation of the book. Today the game will be at -35% by the way ;)
