The Game Maker


On his tenth birthday, Ivan Drago is taken by his parents to an old amusement park, where he wins a comic book as consolation prize. An advertisement on the back cover invites him to participate in a rare contest for game inventors, sponsored by the Profound Games Company, a mysterious corporation that operates from the Napoleon ocean liner.

A puzzle with a missing piece… suspicion around an accident suffered by Ivan’s parents… the real identity and true intentions of Morodian… these are all mysteries that can only be solved behind the walls of the Profound Games Company, where Ivan Drago must go to solve the enigma surrounding his parents and become a true games maker.
