The game opens with a narration from George Stobbart, the protagonist of the series, explaining that he has been away from Paris for nearly six months, and has reunited with girlfriend Nicole Collard. Despite George's wishes to celebrate, Nico instead wishes the two to visit an archaeologist, Professor Oubier, who can tell them more about a mysterious Mayan stone Nico uncovered while researching a story. George has suspicions about the visit, which are proven correct when they are ambushed by two Central Americans, who proceed to shoot Nico with a poison dart and take her away. To deal with George they tie him to a chair and leave him at the mercy of a menacing poisonous spider and a freshly started fire. The scene is juxtaposed with a Mesoamerican sacrifice to Tezcatlipoca.
