You are Stephen Minnow, a struggling actor stuck in a contract playing a cereal mascot for Loopi-oh's. You kind of hate your job but it's all you can get at the moment. One day after wrapping up a day of filming you hear a suspicious noise round the back of the studio. After following a trail of litter you see... You try and get out but a grid girl appears in your path. Oh? Where did she come from? You lean in for a kiss with the grid girl. You move away from her and go to find a better hiding spot. You go into the next room and hide behind a counter. The guy with a knife appears in the doorway and looks around. > You say "Don't look behind the counter, there's nobody here." You whisper, "Don't look behind the counter, there's nobody here." He says, "I heard someone say that. Where are you?" You point to your left. He looks over to your left. You headbutt him and run out the door. You hop in the knife guy's car and drive off with the grid girl. You ask the grid girl, "What is your name?" You ask the grid girl, "What is your name?" She says, "Lena." She says, "Lena." Jason,the only male grid girl and part time formula one driver, pulls up to you at a stoplight and revs his engine. Jason pulls up to you at a stoplight and revs his engine. You and Lena exchange a kiss. Jason play's eurobeat and burns rubber in a circle drifting around your car. You and Lena are scared. You ask Lena, "What do you think?" She says, "I think I'm sleepy." > You and Lena drink Redbull. Lena says, "I like my men like I like my coffee. Weak and white, because I'm a strong independent woman." The sun comes up and your contract with the devil runs out. The devil appears on the hood of your car and says it's time to hand over your soul. The devil notices all the Redbull cans and says, "That's OK." "I'm a bit of a Redbull addict myself," says the devil. > You confess to Lena that you sold your soul to become a famous cereal mascot. You tell Lena that you sold your soul for a part in a cereal box commercial. You both sit in silence for a moment, let down by this revelation. You level up and gain the following cereal mascot powers: You can get away with one brutal murder each per game. You have no actual powers, you're just a liar. You pull out your phone and show Lena a tape of the commercial. "You were good," says Lena. "I was great," you reply. Jason is still doing donuts around your vehicle, his tires are down to rims, then he crashes into a light pole. This distract Satan and you speed off. "Thanks for the distraction Jason!" you shout out the window. You drive Lena home and say, "No hard feelings about what I said earlier. Lena invites you to come up for a while. You say, "Sure, thanks for the offer." You go up to Lena's apartment and drink vodka with her. You pass out and don't wake up until the next afternoon. You show up late to do a commercial for Reindrob's Teleportation device ®, you see the police are there and it appears to be a crime scene. You ask what happened and the director tells you that an intern took your part and was teleported accidentally to 100 different places at once, killing him instantly. You level up and gain the following powers: You can get away with one brutal murder each per game. You have no actual powers, you're just a liar. > You say "Has this ever happened to YOU?" You say, "Has this ever happened to YOU?" The man says, "No never." You say, "I bet it has." You jump in your car and escape. > You look for someone to brutally murder. You drive around town and see a group of thugs beating up a kid for his bag of corn chips. You run them over and step out the car. You take the corn chips and say, "No need to thank me, I get 1 brutal murder per game." You then drive off. Your brutal murder gets the attention of Satan. He says, "Hey asshole. You owe me." You use your faulty teleportation machine on Satan. It malfunctions horribly. You appear in the middle of a forest, alone. No Satan. Just trees and silence. You sit on a nearby rock and cry for a while. Then you get an idea. You'll escape this forest. After all, it has to have a perimeter, right? You just need to keep walking until you find the edge. You've been walking for 5 days now. You reach the perimeter of the forest and shocked to see... another forest. And beyond that, another, and beyond that, nothing but more forests. You've been walking for 13 days now. You reach the edge of the outermost forest. Beyond it is a highway. > You walk along the highway. A car appears and pulls up next to you. The car window rolls down and the driver offers you a lift. You get in. The driver says, "You seem lost." You nod. "Do you have any family?" asks the driver. You brutally murder the man that picked you up. You eat him, gaining a few vital nutrients to help you survive. You level up, gaining the following trait: Your ability to murder has increased tenfold. The end! The moral of the story: look both ways before you cross the street.
