This game is the 16th game of the Carol Reed serie and it is set  in 2020 when the whole world is suffering from the Covid-19 pandemic

Alvin is a 16-year-old teenager with a passion for skateboarding. Alvin is a bit of a loner and he lives with his mother Jonna Brand, who is an advocate of the COVID-19 corona virus safety procedures. To pursue his favorite pastime, Alvin sneaks out early in the morning while his mother works at night.
