After forcing Carmara’s hand into letting him intrude upon his life, Ferrum has been influencing him to "take back what the world owes him". Unfortunately, the path he chooses requires tarnishing his pristine image, and it all starts with a small act of deception...

Thanks for downloading!

Your computer's antivirus may prevent the game from playing right away if you have your security settings on high because there's no code signing certificate (which looks complicated and $$$ expensive $$$ to acquire), but you should be able to just start it after the warning.
