About the Story

In this comedic short game, you play as an overweight young man of the Massif tribe. Your dad's left you to watch over his cows, which is bad enough, but now a lion just came into the enclosure and took one away! You better get that cow back and fast or your dad won't let you go to any dances for a hundred years!
