The Hidden Story
5 years ago, Don Cavalier was visiting a certain European city to participate in "Global-wide Game Show", the world's biggest game festival. While walking around, he becomes interested at an auction going on near the festivities and decides to take a closer look. Don Cavalier was a man who loved to collect and display rare antiques and soon became fascinated with a piece of scroll that was put up in the auction by one of the gypsies. Out of nowhere, he jumps into the auction and outbids everyone for the scroll, including the genius anthropologist Veronica.
The scroll was made with white whale leather and contained small letters written with ink made from a mixture of black shellfish, fish oil, and seaweed pigment. It contained history of ancient lost city of "Alteo." Always looking for new ideas for his games, Don Cavalier senses that this strange piece of artifact will come handy someday.
After the discovery of this strange scroll, 1 year has passed by when a strange island appeared in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. Because of the similarities shared by the island and the lost place described in his scroll, Don Cavalier believes this new island must have been part of Alteo Kingdom. He immediately purchases the island and renames it Caballa Island after himself. Soon after, he brings in his top staff from his company, Megalo Company, and begins his final secret project. Don Cavalier's last master piece, "Trickster" is finally born after more than 4 years of development. No doubt it received more attention because of the sudden death of its producer as well as his will.
Meanwhile, Veronica wants that scroll that could prove the existence of the ancient Alteo empire. This scroll, now in the Don Cavalier's hands, has been investigating by Veronica for her whole career, but before she can properly inspect it Don Cavalier buys that scroll and tries to discredit her.
The game begins with the will of a billionaire.
|Breaking news from SNBC~!
Since it was unclear whether he specified the successors to his fortune, there seemed to be a possible friction among the family members and company staffs regarding the inheritance of his estate, his lawyers have revealed a hologram data which contained his will.
|"I, Don Cavalier, would like to leave a will regarding my fortune.
People with different reasons and purposes are continuously arriving at the island and by means of billionaire's will, the game has begun. The most important goal of this game is to collect special game cards and in order to dig them up, you need to use special equipment (drill) provided by Megalo Company.
The anthropologist Veronica know the news about Don Cavalier's death. Long time she figured out that the island is in fact connected to Alteo. Now, she joins the game to find out the truth. Other people were to the island too, like the schoolgirl Niea, the inventor Leo, and the movie star Jenny.
