All the instructions are in the video messages of Prof. Cronos. Printed pages show you the equipment. In the texts of the website your story will come alive. On 20th-21st of February 1440 a small group, on the order of the widowed Queen Elizabeth of Hungary, had stolen the crown from Visegrád to Komárom. The police got the news few days ago that a mad scientist, who calls himself Professor Cronos, constructed a time machine and changed the stealing of the crown into a battlefield. The police chose you to go back to the adventurous night of February 1440 and help the crown thieves. It is very important that you succeed because if you change the history and the crown stays in Visegrád so much disorder arises in the space-time tissue that it may mean the end of the Universe.
Historical background
Our story takes place in Hungary, in Komárom and Visegrád and between these two locations, at night on the 20th-21st of February 1440. King Albert II. dies on 27th of October 1439. His wife, Queen Elizabeth, is expecting a baby, she is in the fifth month. The leaders of the country are diveded in to parties: the members of the royal council would like to invite the 16-year-old Vladislaus to the vacant Hungarian throne, and they want the widowed Queen Elizabeth to get married. Elisabeth and her followers do not like this scenario. What if the unborn child is a boy? In this case, he could be the legitimate ruler of the country. Queen Elizabeth decides to steal the crown from the Visegrád Castle to Komárom so if she has a baby, and it is a boy, she can crown him. She charges her maid of honour, friend and confidante Mrs. Kottanner with the task.
