How It Begins

You might be anyone, carrying nothing, standing on your front lawn. On your lawn you see an assortment of worthless crap, including a foam shark head, a pile of rifles, a trashcan containing dead parrots, and a letter.

Your do-gooder neighbour Balser, who you hate very very much, stops by briefly (on his way to help out at the soup kitchen) to tell you that he's been nominated for The Citizen of the Year award yet again. You want to win that award instead.

CAUTION: This game contains some rude words, a bit of gore, scatalogical content, and other potentially unpleasant themes.
