Game

Do you have an appetite for adventure and action? Well, look no further. Tragedy and triumph awaits the adventurous in this interactive game. Choose a character and then enter the melodramatic world of the silent film to explore an early 20th century silver rush. Set in authentic historic photographs and using actual artefacts from the Cobalt Mining Museums as props (see if you can spot them), the game asks you to make some tough choices and take some risks. Let the adventure begin!
