Elsinore is an adventure game unlike any other, set in the world of Shakespeare's Hamlet.

You play as Ophelia, a young noblewoman of Denmark, who awakes from a terrible vision: in three days, everyone in the castle will die in a tragic massacre. To make matters worse, the vision has inexplicably thrown her into a time loop. Forced to relive the same three days again and again, Ophelia must learn to survive in Elsinore Castle, doing everything in her power to change the course of history.

Lie, assassinate, befriend, aid, or destroy -- the actions you can take at any stage are numerous. Elsinore uses a custom-built event generation engine to create a story that responds to your choices unlike any other adventure game available.
