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.

That's a tricky one. Message me if you'd like more info.

Glad you enjoyed the game!


The game is funny and interesting.

After going trough all dialogue options and unlocking all the medals I feel that there could be more. Two things I was expecting and was left feeling as missing are:
1)More involved fight with Blimp with more possible results, especially after choosing your sex.
2)Ability to outshine the Ultra Man and win the heart of the female reporter. The only romantic option being a bald and pathetic stamp collector dude instead was disappointing.

Btw this reminded me about the old UltraMan anime from my childhood. That Ultraman was very different, trough. Must rewatch for nostalgic purposes.



Just when i was getting into it, it was over. I had a great time playing this, the art style is good and the music really fits the humor, however its too damn short! I wanted more.

That said though, this is a really fun game with good writing, i laughed out loud a few times too.



I see that this game have a great backstory and a social critic. Awesome



Pretty funny, worth a handful of plays!
