The Secrets of Da Vinci: The Forbidden Manuscript is the first ever game created about the life and work of Leonardo da Vinci. It offers players the opportunity to grapple with the mysteries of the codes hidden within the works of the great Italian genius.
The Italian artist and inventor was born in Tuscany in 1452. At the age of 15, he joined the Verrochio workshop where he trained in a range of disciplines (painting, sculpture, mathematics, decorative work).
In His Majesty's own words: "Here, you will be free to dream, think and work."
The plot revolves around the character of Leonardo da Vinci and great attention has been paid to his modelling. Each appearance in the game is connected with a key moment.
In The Secrets of Da Vinci: The Forbidden Manuscript, the player encounters Leonardo da Vinci several months before his death, at the Manoir du Cloux, his last home. We meet the elderly white bearded Da Vinci, shortly before he bequeathed the sum total of his technical research to Francesco Melzi, his pupil and faithful companion, who was charged with their publication for the greater good. The player will learn much from listening to Da Vinci and watching him work at home in the place he loved so much.
