Above all, fear the machine.
— The game's Tagline.
It seems like a lifetime since we worked on cartoons together. 30 years really slips away, doesn't it?
If you're back in town, come visit the old workshop. There's something I need to show you.
Your best pal, Joey Drew
— Joey's letter to Henry at the beginning of the game.
I know, I know... .. you have questions. You always do! The only important question is this: Who are we, Henry? I thought I knew who I was... but, the success starved me. Nothing left but lines on a page. In the end, we followed two different roads of our own making. You... a lovely family. Me... a crooked empire. And my road burned. I let our creations become my life. The truth is, you were always so good at pushing, old friend... pushing me to do the right thing. You should have pushed a little harder. Henry, come visit the old workshop... there's something I want to show you.
