Here's a sneak peek to the storyline: “You are Newton. You don’t know how you got here! You are a scientist in London, living a secret life as an alchemist: trying to perfect the science of turning base metal into gold.

Next thing you know, you are here in this mysterious place with a note.” As you solve challenges, the story unfolds and exact directions on your phone will guide you to the next location.
