This ... hah! Love it!

haha, thanks for checking it out!!


Haha! This one caught me off guard. I was expecting cavemen along the line of the cheesy Ringo Starr movie. But the reference is to Plato's The Cave and the "action" in the game is about one's capability for coping with new ideas. You are a philosopher of a sort. Your memory is your Goons "inventory" and your Goons "health" is their certainty. So clever! Also, I love that cover illustration. :)
