The Candle Man:

In 1964 the Mcminnville Mortuary was honored to serve the Herald family with the lose of their dearly beloved Albert. Albert was an mysterious individual, the owner of a candle shop that was a local staple in the Mcminnville Plaza. The candle shop was located in the underground portion of the mall next to the McMinnville Mortuary. In the early morning of sept 13th at exactly 3:13AM a fire broke out in the candle shop killing Albert. Albert and his shop where no more but his legacy would still live on... ​​

After the fire, investigators found experimentations of human bodies that where later found to be supplied by the now flooded Mcminnville Mortuary.. the experimentations were horrific with humans being turned into candles.. The only other artifact found was a note saying “ don’t blow out the candle - Candle-man” Left burning beside it was one single candle.

After Alberts funeral the owner and funeral director Dewitt blew out alberts Candle and EVERYTHING CHANGED. The McMinnville Mortuary flooded leaving remnants to what it once was with only one way out. A portal of the supernatural mythical world of the candle man and his intentions are now terrorizing revenge on anyone who dares to walk through the flood walls of the McMinnville Mortuary. Will you make it out of the CANDLE-MANS dark universe?.

The Fallout Shelter Purge:

At the hieght of the population growth of Mcminville came unforeseen precautions. The government based a fallout shelter in a convienent location known to the locals as the Mcminville Plaza vault. During the build of the massive vault locals where concerned how rapid the population was growing. After the completion of the vault in 1968 the population mysteriously started to go down the more the fallout shelter had drills. It rumored to know be used by the government to purge the population once it is exceeded. Annually the emergency sirens draw large crowds for an annual nuclear drill test. The few lucky people who have escaped have said to witness the government testing experiments on people ranging from electric shock therapy, cloning, water therapy, to mutations. The intentions are officially unknown unless a brave soul truly seeks to find the truth of what is behind the yellow fallout shelter sign.
