  • After the failure in Barcelona, Indiana is assigned by French Intelligence to head to Amsterdam to learn the details of his next mission. There his contact disguised as a blind man informs him to travel to Prague to set up residence and wait for a phone call in three days, a phone call that he was told was of extreme importance in ending the war.

  • Indiana then travels to Prague disguised as a ladies underwear salesman named Amadeus Shooblegrueber, and when he gets to the residence he learns that the phone had been removed by the authorities.

  • Indiana is then sent on a wild goose chase for all the appropriate forms needed to install a new phone, even landing himself in jail for a night, only to finally receive assistance from author Franz Kafka who helps Indiana track down the right paperwork.

  • Indiana then has to rig the phone to actually work in his apartment, just in time to receive the call from the double agent who tells him to head to Berlin.

  • During these errands Indiana is assisted by:

  • Franz Kafka - German language novelist and short story writer regarded as a major figure of 20th century literature. Born into a German-speaking Jewish family in Prague (at that time part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire), few of his works were published in his lifetime and only received minimal recognition. It was after he died at the age of 40 from tuberculosis that a close friend named Max Brod published the rest of Kafka’s work (in spite of Kafka’s request to burn them), which subsequently went on to influence countless writers, artists, and philosophers throughout the 20th century.

  • Locations in this adventure are as follows:

  • Amsterdam - capital and most populated city in the Kingdom of the Netherlands, it originated as a small fishing village in the 12th century, only later to evolve into one of the most important seaports in the world during the Dutch Golden Age (which took place in the 17th century). Today due to various attractions that includes Anne Frank's House and the Van Gogh Museum (along with it’s red light district and cannabis coffee shops), Amsterdam is visited by over 5 million international tourists every year.
