On the forum post, Pope released a plot synopsis that reads as follows:

“In 1802, the merchant ship ‘Obra Dinn’ set out from London for the Orient with over 200 tons of trade goods. Six months later it hadn’t met its rendezvous point at the Cape of Good Hope and was declared lost at sea. Early this morning of October 14th, 1808, the Obra Dinn drifted into port with sails damaged and no visible crew. As insurance adjustor for the East India Company’s London Office, find means to board the ship and recover the captain’s logbook for assessment.”

Pope states that he expects the game to take him around six months to complete.
