The story starts off several months after the end of ''VideoGame/EarthBound''. An anachronistic BountyHunter named Varik (of ''{{VideoGame/Brandish}}'' fame) is hired by ex-mayor B. H. Pirkle, now campaigning on a law & order platform, to track down a mysterious creature who mutilated and ate a little girl's parents in Twoson. Along the way, he encounters increasingly horrible things as the adventure takes him all the way to Winters. This isn't your average Halloween game, though its content is comparable to games like ''Franchise/SilentHill'' and ''VideoGame/YumeNikki''. This game also has the added effect of making you depressed as you play. This is easily one of the most disturbing ''VideoGame/EarthBound'' hacks to come out... well, ever, really.

* QuirkyBard: Varik himself. His stats are notably lower than Ness', and unlike him, he doesn't have a single offense PSI- er... ''magic'' attack. All his magic abilities are status inducers. [[UselessUsefulSpell This is less useless than you'd think, though]], as those status inducers ''will'' be needed [[NintendoHard if you want to even hope to get through this game.]] He can also equip all of Poo's equipment, which, if you go out of your way and sneak past all the DemonicSpiders [[spoiler:in Magicant]] in an attempt to get it, can make things a ''lot'' easier on you for a while.

* FakeDifficulty:
** Despite the fact that the hack intends for you to use status PSI as much as possible in battles if you want to survive, Varik barely gets ''any'' PP in order to effectively make use of this. At most, you may be able to get use of one, maybe two status PSI' before his PP runs out, in a game that likes to get spam happy with monsters that can easily overpower the group otherwise. This usually means several tedious turns of using PSI magnet to drain PP and get back to full, only to make minimal progress and have to resort to this tactic again.
** The sewer might as well be one giant LuckBasedMission, especially considering you only get one character at a time. You get swarmed in groups of three/four enemies that like to stun-lock you, and in large groups you'll be lucky to get even a single turn in as the group stun-locks you to a slow and painful death. Your only real hope of making it through is trying to despawn enemies, which is hard since the sewer water slows down your movements considerably, and enemies like to spawn ontop of you as you transfer through doors.
