Explore the king’s castle, the city and many other accurately replicated areas as you try to uncover a secret that could prove disastrous if it were to fall into the wrong hands.

And in February, continue your travels in time with episodes 2 and 3 -- ‘The Versailles Mysteries 2: The Royal Spy’ and ‘The Vulture’. Investigate more mysteries throughout historic Paris, Luxembourg and elsewhere. Along your journeys you’ll need to complete loads of quests, infiltrate secret societies, participate in war as you help to plan tactical strategies, decipher enigmas, play traditional games like wagon races, and engage historical figures such as Napoleon and Sébastien Le Prestre de Vauban.
And to help you -- or educate you -- every step of the way, each episode contains a 100-page encyclopedia, complete with in-depth historical information about all aspects of life during these times. Play and learn at the same time, as adventure gaming meets history in this new series!
