Then this is right up your alley! You’ve finally located the Sun Treasure, but it’s protected in a crystal tomb that is exposed to constant sunlight and therefore the inside of the chamber gets hotter than a rice cooker. The heat protects the treasure as it burns anyone and anything that tries to break into the tomb. Except today, when a rare millennial solar eclipse will block the sun out for an hour, and leaves you exactly sixty minutes to get the treasure before the sun strikes again. Do you have what it takes to solve the puzzles and keep yourself cool as a cucumber when the heat is on? The sand is running through the hourglass and time is ticking!
