For a full review of the game log onto the site tomorrow. In the meantime, content yourself with details of the game below:

'It has been three years since Catherine de Médicis' rule as regent came to an end, but she still holds the reins of power, making her the target of repeated attacks from the French nobility. One day in March 1566, when she realises that she has fallen victim to a terrible curse, and turns to her doctor and astrologer, Michel de Nostre-Dame, better known as Nostradamus.

The French setting is captured in the environments in game.

Unfortunately, the famous prophet is too old and weak to take on such a mission alone. Refusing to abandon his Queen in her hour of need, he sends his daughter Madeleine in his place. However, there is no such thing as women astrologers, let alone women doctors in medieval times. To be accepted as such, the young woman must go in disguise and assume her younger brother César’s identity.

Alternating between Madeleine the young woman, and Madeleine disguised as César, players are plunged into a thriller where political scheming and ancestral prophecies are intertwined. The game begins as an initiatory adventure in the footsteps of her father Nostradamus, and transitions into a suspenseful test-riddled forensic investigation as you are faced with one murder to another.'
