Nowadays, in the Alps. A police inspector, Mr. Peter Glebsky, takes a vacation and goes to the Dead Mountaineer's Hotel, a small resort located in a secluded valley.
The resort is very nice, yet populated by bizarre guests: Mr. Moses, an old and rich man with highly eccentric manners, his stunningly beautiful wife, Mr. du Barnstocre, an illusionist accompanied by his child (an adolescent of unidentifiable sex), Mr. Simonet the obsessed physicist, and so on.
At the same time, one of the recent guests is found dead in his room, his door locked and his neck horribly twisted. Mr. Glebsky will have to start an investigation. Soon he begins to understand that things are not simple at all. Indeed, what kind of a sane police inspector would suggest that some of his suspects are aliens?
The story has been implemented in a video game also known as Dead Mountaineer's Hotel by Russian software company Akella, to be released for North America and Western Europe by Lighthouse Interactive in 2008.
