A downloadable game for macOS

You are an American tourist ready to return home when a misadventure with a magpie renders your passport ruined.

Knowing you now have some unscheduled time in Australia, your childhood friend asks you to track down her twin brother, Marcus, who was last known to be on a working holiday in the Victorian country town of Phillipston. Upon arriving there, you discover that he is not the only one who has disappeared; in the past two years, four others have vanished into the bush.

Upon further investigation, you find that Marcus belongs to a group of online fortune seekers fixated on a poem, “Call of the Golden Valley,” by miner-turned-bush poet “Possum” Jon Harvey. Convinced that the poem holds the key to Possum Jon's stash of gold, they ventured one-by-one into the forest to seek the alleged treasure. Your job is to unravel where they believed the poem was leading them, and hope that you’re not too late for Marcus…
