[Mystery-solving story]

"Spatial Distortion Miga Occurs"
You visited the Art Aquarium Museum, which was specially opened at night. As soon as I entered, an announcement suddenly sounded and all entrances and exits were locked.
As they searched the hall for clues to escape, they found a piece of paper with several mysteries written on it.
Apparently, a goldfish that was in a virtual space called MetaMe got mixed into the real world for some reason.
You must find this goldfish to return it to its original space.
However, all of these methods are encrypted and cannot be deciphered without clues in both real and virtual space.
Become a bridge between the two spaces and solve all the mysteries in order to return the goldfish to its original space!
