Thrust into the limelight due to a wardrobe malfunction, you, a lowly sidekick, must speak to a hostile press corps expecting a hero.

Praise or insult your hero. Steal his identity. Flirt relentlessly with reporters.

The possibilities are endless, except that there are only thirteen of them, because there are thirteen endings.

Love the game. I love all the surprises. I need to know all the endings. As a perfectionist I have gotten all but the seventh medal. It's driving me nuts. But, uh, I love the game, either way.


HershallCook responds:

That's a tricky one. Shoot me a message and I can give you more details.


I love all of your games. They all have such a unique sense of humor and they never go how you think they will. I had a lot of fun. The art was really pleasing to look at as well xx


HershallCook responds:

HershallCook responds:
