Some years ago, Josh’s parents died. No-
body every knew why. Even the police. Even
them could not know why they died. Some
people say that they died in a natural way, but other
people say this isn’t logical, and think that someone had to kill them.
After years of confusion and searching, nobody has been able to find a
Joames and Olive died on the 5th of May, in 1995, when Josh was 5.
A farmer found their corpses near a huge tree, a huge dead tree. “At
that moment, the sky was darker”, said the farmer. “The wind started
to blow harder. It was a cold, pale wind. The smell was nauseating. I
approached, little by little, to that terrible, huge and lonely tree. I never
liked that tree. A flock of crows fled when I arrived. I was alone, and
frightened. I screamed loudly, but there was no one there. I ran to my
farm, almost crying. I called the police, and in half an hour, they arrived.
I went to the tree with them, but . . . there was something different.
the corpses were in a different position . . . and with new clothes on . .
.” Those were the last words of the farmer.
After the tragedy, Josh went to live with his uncles, Steve and Helen.
They helped Josh to learn, but they never told Josh about his parents’
death. They were living nicely, like a happy family . . . until that day.
Steve and Helen, the only family that Josh had, died on the 2nd of
February, in 2002, when Josh was 12. Nobody knew how. A tourist
found their corpses on the edge of a river, in a dark old forest. “I was
lost”, said the tourist, “I didn’t know which way I had to go. The sky
was getting darker and darker, and I didn’t know where I was. After a
long time walking, I found a river. I was very thirsty, so I went to drink
some water. Suddenly, I heard voices, not far from there. I shouted,
but there wasn’t any answer. I started to run in the direction of the
voices, trying to find those people. But the only think I found was a big
flock of balck crows, and a terrible smell. I ran away as fast as I could.
The only image I remember of that moment . . . was horrible . . I can’t
explain . . there were . . . letters . . . big letters drawn on the trees .
. drawn in blood . . . those trees fell down, at the same time . . . those
letters formed two words . . . BEWARE . . “ Those were the last words
of the tourist.
Josh had to go to the psychologist for a long time. He was Philip, a very
good friend of his parents and his uncle and aunt’. Josh has been living
with him since then.
Nowadays, Josh is 19. Philip told him all about his family’s death. And
now, with the help of Philip, the psychologist, and of Emily, Josh’s best
friend, Josh will do everything he can so as to find out why his family
died and who was responsible for their death.
Watch the World burn, is an action-packed game. This game includes
a pack with virtual glasses. Thanks to them, the extreme moments of
the game will look more real. 3Dimensional videos and extreme gra-
phics are the main features of the game. Absolute realism. Obviously,
it is better to enjoy the game wearing these glasses than watching
the game on the traditional TV set. This pack also includes headphones
which make the sound efects more real too.
The game satrts like a film, showing the entire story told above. After
that, you appear in a strange room. You will learn how to control the
character, how to move, how to use objects, etc. Then you must go out
of this room. You’ll see a big corridor. It seems you’re in a hotel, or some
other place similar. This was the hotel where his parents were working.
You have to explore all the rooms to find necessary objects and impor-
tant clues. After that, you must go out of the hotel. Now, you will meet
Philip. He will help you in your first investigation.
The game is divided in 2 parts: each part has 40 levels or missions.
Each mission is more difficult and complex than the previous one. In
the first part, you’ll conduct several investigations and you’ll have to
plan how to find out everything about the death of Josh’s family; and in
the second one, you’ll do everything possible to find and, if necessary,
to kill the culprit. At the end of each mission, you’ll take note about
the things discovered and all the investigations carried out. This game
requires a lot of attention to detailsand clues because all of these things
will help you. Some of the clues are given from the very beginning of
the story, for example, the name of the parents and the uncle and
Steve During the game, you’ll discover that some people
