About the Story

A puzzle from the 2018 Caltech Puzzle Hunt.

The city of Reality has turned invisible due to lack of interest. The nearby city of Illusions, while beautiful, is but a figment of the collective imagination. King Azaz has sent you on a quest to end this perversion and restore Reality.
