You are correct, the first part is the prologue and apparently it was interactive but I have yet to see it. This is scary, either I did it and don't remember it or it was missing from my download. Either way I will be going back to play it again to see what happened. I have finished the game, love the graphics, I thought they were beautiful. I would like to capture the outdoor scene in front of Vambery Manor, overlooking the ocean. It would make a great desktop background.
When you live in the past, it costs you the present.
