help i stuck at the 2nd call to bank

you search for porn... but all thats comping up are silly cat gifs!

Frick yeah, good ending purely by doing what I felt was right, good game and a great concept, little confusing sometimes and the dialogue did skip a few lines occasionally for no reason, but still, 4.5 stars!

It was a nice game, the story and progression was good. I only wish that it was a bit longer, but it would have probably been a double edged sword on length, some like it short some like it long. But nonetheless, it's still a great game. Hoping to look forward to a potential sequel.

Thank you for such kind words! We had a lot of fun writing it.
