Episode 428 - Lacrimosa
Release Date: October 27, 2023
Running Time: 180 min
Mozart’s untimely death leaves his family in crisis. How can they survive financially without the maestro? His wife Constanze has a plan: publish a memoir and find composers to finish his last great work... the Requiem.
In Lacrimosa, you play as one of Mozart’s dear friends. Over the course of five rounds you'll compete to gather accolades and respect, and in doing so, insure the future of Mozart's family.
You'll recount your memories and travels with Mozart and the many musical works you commissioned. All these details will end up in Constanze's memoir, insuring your legacy.
You’ll also find and pay composers to complete the Requiem. Without your help, Mozart’s last work would still sit unfinished.
May the best patron win!
