Cirque du Mystère – How To Play

It’s been returning to the outskirts of the sleepy town of Squall’s End every October for as long as you can remember.

But, when your little brother goes missing, you begin to realize that something evil is afoot. It is now up to you to find your brother. Will you rescue him, or become the next victim of Cirque du Mystère?
