Bienvenue à Paris, and welcome to the world of illusions. Here, there is a select group of people able to access the past in corners of the city at the right moment. They aren’t just looking for the illusions- for there are keys scattered throughout the city that they need to open doors to a house nestled within the Jardin des Plantes. During their explorations, these five people also find illusions who need their help…
Phantasma explores Paris, from the rooftops to the metro and across the map, following a quirky band of characters.
