Set in a fantastical world that draws inspiration from the 1920s, players take on the role of elite agent Alisa as she tracks down a notorious thief. However, her journey takes an unexpected turn when she finds herself trapped in a strange Victorian-style mansion, haunted by its mechanized doll-like inhabitants.
