The setting? We’re transported to the 1970s, specifically to a secluded mining village in Northern Canada, known as Manastan. The hero, Carl Faubert, isn’t just your regular guy; he’s a detective on a mission. Kona II: Brume is not just any ordinary detective story. There’s is an eerie mist, called “The Brume,” that has shrouded the entire village, causing merry havoc with the balance of nature. It’s not only messing with nature but seems to be causing the people and the entire village to lose touch with reality. Think of it like a thick, disorienting fog that you’d see in a horror story.
Now, the lands of Manastan are vast, with so much to explore. From old wooden huts that might hold important clues, to various other locations you can reach with the help of a dog sled, and even navigating the expansive lakes surrounding the village. But remember, Kona II: Brume is not just about finding out what’s happening. There’s also the challenge of keeping Carl safe. The Brume brings with it a host of dangers, from freezing blizzards to unpredictable wildlife. So, you’ve got to be on your toes!
