The Watchmaker is an adventure title featuring real-time 3D graphics and a compelling story which embodies the true evolution of adventure gaming, introducing brand new situations and techniques.
A lawyer, Victoria Conroy, and Darrel Boone, an expert in paranormal phenomena, meet by chance. A few hours later, a taxi deposits them at the gates of a mysterious Austrian castle. Their mission is to recover a device resembling a huge pendulum. With its ability to maximise leyline energy coupled with an approaching solar eclipse, the machine now poses a serious threat to human survival. The pendulum has been stolen by a group of religious fanatics and must be located and stopped before midnight to avoid possible global catastrophe. At least this is what our two 'detectives' are led to believe.
Their task, and indeed that of the player, becomes more dangerous and complex. With less than 24 hours to go, the challenge is no longer a game. It's a reality.
