About the StoryI had enough fake news clouding my head even before remembering the words of Zobra the Seer, that today I would encounter great peril, end up in the news, and discover the fate of my great-grandparents. Get out, Zobra. I just want to head to the Algarve for some R&R.
Contrary to popular belief, this story is not about President Trump, is not pro-Trump nor is it political. I used the story name of Fake News before it was solely associated with President Trump. It's just a fun story, so go ahead and enjoy. ;)

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful:A humorous collection of vignettes based on fake news, November 16, 2017
Mike Sousa has written many past IF games, and the polish of this game is testament to his experience.
This game is tied together by various real-life newspaper headlines. You are having a pretty crazy day, and you hop from sequence to sequence trying to deal with mistaken identities and rogue celebrities.
There isn't a lot of direct interactivity in the traditional sense, but there's a lot of room to play around in each scene, with plenty of coded actions.
