How It Begins

Your name is Willow Murphy, and you are an animal lover who works for the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). Your goal in the game is to get videotape of the animals at the Waleri Bros. Menagerie and Circus, whom you suspect are mistreated.

You start the game at the circus midway with a camera case that contains: a video camera, a battery, a videotape, and you have $2 in your purse (PETA is a non-profit, they must not pay that well).

You run into Wemmie, a "towny" as the circus folk call the locals. She is playing some midway games, and seems rather friendly. Maybe she will be helpful to you. Also you'll run into a variety of clowns, performers and even a gypsy fortune teller.
