We’ve all dreamt about living in a huge mansion with great wealth and riches – but unfortunately our dreams never seem to come true. Spare a thought for young Hans, a boy from a poor family, who can’t even get candy and presents for his birthday. But one day, as he is found lost in the woods after leaving home because of his misfortunes, he encounters a kobold who promises to inherit him his wishes. The catch? Hans must find out the name of this mysterious wanderer…
And it is from there where The Count Lucanor comes in.
By taking in the long halls of the Tenebre Castle, searching for clues in order to solve the puzzles you will encounter on your journey, it is up to you to help. Talking to every NPC you come across will provide useful information – so having your wits about you will be key to achieving your goal.
But it isn’t all so simple: Hans will need to hide under tables to avoid the gaze of the enemies and traps set up in the castle, anticipating these baddies in order to continue in one piece. This is where using the items you have collected across the game may also come in handy, so use them wisely!
With five different endings to Hans’ tale, the choices you make throughout the course of The Count Lucanor will make a major difference in what happens at the end of the day, but play your cards right and hopefully Hans can go from rags to riches and become the new Count Lucanor.
