You are Button Mash. You probably knew this already, but it is important to reiterate the basics for casual players. Not that you are one. In fact, you are probably the most really hardcore gamer in the history of gaming. Mom said so.

Yours is a noble lineage, stretching back all the way to the ancestral monarch, King Pong, who established his glorious reign by slaying fifty evil dragons in a single combo. Sadly, King Pong was assassinated in a treacherous act of treachery, devastating the once-great House of Pong and scattering its many hardcore players to the wind. However, a single colt managed to escape total party kill, and was raised as an orphan in a humble, unassuming village. The colt's name was Bangersun Mash, and he would go on to father a line of heroic heroes that eventually resulted in you.

You are really bad at thinking when you have just woken up. If only it weren't for your window! And also the sun.

Everyone knows that games are best played in low-light conditions!

A quest already! And it's easy! Today is a good day. You are going to get so much XP today.

Time to start playing. What do you do?
