The game story is based on true events surrounding the exploration of a huge cave network in Mammoth Cave Kentucky. A professor named Phobias Timestill investigates the remains of ancient American inhabitants and discovers a way to travel to the past and be placed in historical moments with the player's family. The Professor tries to change some aspect of your family tree so that you don't exist and he consequently will inherit all of the player's worldly possessions. The objective of the game is to find out what has been changed in history and correct it, thus thwarting the evil objectives of the professor Timestill.
Over thirty historical events are analyzed and the characters in the game will be your own ancestors. Vital records, DNA research, newspaper articles and other typical genealogical documents will be used as part of the investigative processes to understand what might have been changed in history.
