Since the beginning of recorded time, the New Year's Baby has been hatched from its protective egg at precisely midnight on New Year's Eve. In a shock move, someone at the facility has stolen the 2017 egg just moments before the hatching ceremony begins. You have been summoned to the scene of the crime in order to track down the culprit and rescue the egg before it is too late!
Now, set aside from some circumstances: how stupid it sounds, how similar the idea to Charles Dickens' Christmas Carol, or how much can someone emphatising with such a status, where personified dates walks along. My suspicion is strong that we also play a role of one of them, although, there is no reference to it in the text. No matter that we play a role of a date or not, we have to investigate, and find the deliquent in 25 minutes. Some of our actions are cost minutes, some are not, if we act like this or that. If our time is passed, the hour of payoff comes: the dates appear, we have met with in the game, and we have the choose the suspect among them, like a Poirot, or Miss Marple. If we find out, who was the deliquent, we win the game, if not, we can begin from the new game option again. Luckily, it's not a long game.
