Attracting visitors, a Dr. Holmes built a hotel of horrors, later known as the Murder Castle, with gas chambers, secret passageways, and asphyxiation rooms. All built for the purpose to industrialize his killings.
Overview: 63rd & Wallace, takes the reader on a journey for survival through the murder castle, exploring its darkest secrets and towards the inevitable encounter with Dr. H..H Holmes himself.
