Inspired by Edgar Allan Poe's novel. 1827 - William Legrand, son of a fallen family, came to Sullivan Island, South Carolina, to flee the misery. Wandering on the island, he discovers a rare bug, made of gold. He uses a piece of paper to take it. At night, he draws the bug on this same piece of paper, as he is explaining the adventure to his friend Edgar, standing in front of the fireplace. As William takes back the paper, he realises that symbols appeared on it. It must be an invisible ink, revealed by the heat. From that moment, William thinks it is a Pirate's document: Captain Kidd's coded instructions to his hidden treasure... Help William find it! A THRILLING ADVENTURE: The bug discovery is only a start. Help William decipher the message left by Captain Kidd! Understand the meaning of the codes used in the message, find your way to the different places, and finally dig out the treasure trunk! USEFUL HINTS: Use the Hint: a shiny halo helps you to find one of the objects. No more hints? Not enough time? Find the bonus stars hidden in the scenes to get more hints or time! MAGNIFICENT SETS: Discover Sullivan Island and its darkest places: William's crumbling shed, the Devil's Rock, the forest and its wild life, the desert beach, the Bessops manor in ruins... but also the Charleston fortress on the continent.
