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. ;)

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.
