Author Comments

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.

Edit: Nevermind I found it and it was great.

I originally played that on Y8 games and came here to tell you that I keep replaying the game because I love the comedy, art and music, but my favorite and only real reason I keep coming back is because the romantic ending with Elmer is actually really incredibly sweet. I literally keep replaying the game just for that ending and I love how he blushes and gets nervous and there's a whole happy ending with the sidekick accepting him. If Id go further Id say I wish you made a dating simulator styled game with characters like him who seem lame at first but are just adorkeable.

Love the music and design.

¬°Fantastic! great sense of humor, awesome artwork, excelent music, can be a short game, but it is highly concentrated quality. Really in love with your work. (And please excuse the bad english)

Nice game dude!
