It’s been so much time since I started this promotion, that I sometimes ask myself how it’s still going on. How this thing may still be alive after more than two years? Oh, you don’t know what I’m talking about? Here we are:
More than two years ago I started a prom0tion action with one of the oldest Mac software producers, Mariner Software.

In a dystopian world driven by incessant hunting for attention, a few characters are embarking on a journey of discovery. Pushed forward by ambitions or just curiosity, they will eventually discover that life, as they knew it, was simply a cover for a much deeper, sometimes elusive, order.
