Welcome to our 8th major project Kidnapped.

It looks like trouble has found Pinhead once again. Pinhead's Project 8 offers up am exciting adventure with lots of open questions. Who is the kidnapped girl. Who is she to Pinhead a sister, friend?, girlfriend, dog walker on retainer? She is anything you think up. And just who is this mysterious abductor. What does he want? Finally what direction will you take Pinhead in this adventure. Will he follow the kidnappers instructions? Will he go to the authorities? Or will he go rogue in a attempt to track down and rescue the girl instead. Perhaps you have something even more outlandish up your sleeve. We can't wait to find out.
