Fort by Firelight

The fort is about to surrender to the enemy and now they are looking for any survivors! The fort’s solders will try to take you safety through the secret dark passageways so you can escape before the enemy finds you! As you make your way out, you’ll be surrounded by musket and cannon fire, smoke and chaos with nothing more than a few torches and candles to light the way!
