The Games Maker
To celebrate his 10th birthday, Ivan Drago’s parents take him to an amusement park. In one of the games he wins a comic book where he comes across an ad for a game-making competition sponsored by a mysterious corporation. Against his father’s will, Ivan enters the competition and wins it. Not long after, Ivan’s parents mysteriously disappear during a hot-air balloon race. The boy, believing that they are still alive, embarks on a journey in the course of which he will discover new facts about his family past and meet with the president of the company sponsoring the contest – the enigmatic Morodian.
