In this animated tale of ghosts and family redemption set in Scotland, you control the actions and exploits of Andrew MacPhiles as he takes possession of an inherited castle — an isolated, dark, dank and creepy place filled with 12 spirits from the long and cowardly line of his ancestors. Andrew's supportive fiancee, Paula, accompanies him on this unexpected trip to reclaim his rightful position as the 13th Earl of MacPhiles despite the embarrassing family reputation.
Upon arrival, Andrew meets a zany cast of characters including Murthly, the proper English butler with a secret, the little Scottish handyman Fergus, who delights in creating problems, Mrs. Dimwitty, chief cook and bottle washer of the estate and the odd Vicar, cursed with something of a "toothy" problem. Most of Andrew's attention, however, will be focused on the dozen "family" members from generations past who are instrumental in helping our reluctant Earl get a grip on reality, destroy a centuries-old, ancient family-borne curse and clear the MacPhiles name.
Clandestiny uses humor, riddles and puzzles to aid the progression of the storyline and immerse the player in this fanciful, haunted tale of a cowardly family beset by a terrible, dark secret. While Andrew explores the castle's eerie rooms, false walls and secret passages in an attempt to discover and overcome the family curse, some of the cursor objects, such as rolling eyeballs, a drama mask, skeletal pointing fingers and a throbbing brain, may seem hauntingly familiar with good reason — the game is designed by the developers responsible for the Henry Stauff stories, The 7th Guest and The 11th Hour. Clandestiny features three difficulty levels, 3D animation and a story written by author Jahnna N. Malcolm. ~ Michael L. House, All Game Guide
