The city breathes. It breathes in ragged growls. The city cries. The city slides its slender fingers across its concrete skin and drives its fingernail deep beneath its ribs. The city bleeds. You are Trần Công Lan, young second generation immigrant of the great capital city.  Life has not been kind to you or your recently departed parents, and yet you still wake up every day and perform the same tasks you did the day before. The city warps and twists in front of you. No one else seems to notice it. You hear it creak slowly at night. You leave your small appartment and prepare for another day. You kick the city with every step you take on its pavements. You curse the city with your every breath. You look up and gaze at the bright purple smog, dancing jitters in the grey-blue sky. You sigh and go do what you have to.

btw, is stress what is increasing my speed? cuz i have over 100 stress rn and i am super fast on de paths and roads. edit: somehow i managed to spell stress as streen but i fixed it ._.

yup! basically stress increases your acceleration (therefore top speed) and nearly everything in this godforsaken city raises your stress

(+1)

alrighty then. thanks! stress makes grocery shopping easier.

(+1)

The shopping mall is f*cking scary

a g r e e . that's why i don't actually play the game, i mess around with the character lol. my average frame rate in this game is incredibly low :>

(+2)

i mildly inconvenienced some smog and now my stress levels have exceeded 100.

(+1)

make that 250. and also now for some reason on roads i travel at the speed of sound.

(1 edit) (+1)

and when i left the job site, A SWARM OF LIKE 100 SMOGS APPEARED HELP
edit:this is me in the grocery store later. the smogs follow you. also, they saved me from the one dude by stunning me.

(+1)

h e l p . . .

(+1)

they're forming into a singular entity............

(1 edit) (+1)

h. they are the SQUARE. they have been attacking me for the past uhhhh hour? because i want to either crash the game somehow or get the smog level over 1000. or maybe 9000, who knows? edit: almost forgot the image lol
