The player can swim if necessary, but the water is infested and can fatally damage the player's health and sanity. Before he can prove it, Jean-Yves must first track down all available clues to the size, shape and decoration of the mysterious building. From the Minoan eruption event, and the discovery of Akrotiri on the island, this location is one of many sites purported to have been the location of Atlantis.

Plato often used real people in his dialogues, such as his teacher, Socrates, but the words he gave them were his own.

Could these granite blocks be part of the lighthouse that toppled into the sea during a massive earthquake? Though today Atlantis is often conceived of as a peaceful utopia, the Atlantis that Plato described in his fable was very different.

Cultists in bloody ritual garb are an unremarkable sight on the streets alongside fishermen, average townsfolk, refugees from the destruction of nearby Innsmouththe destitute and desperate, and well-heeled members of the upper class.
