About This Game

The Hepatica Spring—a beautiful bath hotel perched on the shoreline.

As the hotel's owner, you keep things running smoothly with your colorful crew in a calm, peaceful life.

The magical night of Midsummer approaches, and the king himself plans an appearance at your hotel! Before you know it, you're flooded by a sea of sparkling new guests from all over the land. An enchanting mix of fresh romance and exciting gossip fills the air, and the thrill of Midsummer's festive dance grows ever closer.

Soon, however, you realize not everything is as it seems with the king and his men. In this magical land of fairies, trolls, and glittering illusions, who can you trust to help you find the truth?

Whether you decide to join the shy, ingenious Leif, the charming nomadic bard Vendel (and his drog Digby), or the fabulous fashionista Phyllis, you know your quiet world at The Hepatica Spring is about to turn upside down...
