"What, you may ask, is a Patapon? It's best described as an eyeball with limbs: a circle with stick figure legs and arms, usually wearing some kind of hat and carrying a weapon. Unfortunately, they're also almost extinct. Long ago, the Patapon tribe flourished under the guiding hand of "The Almighty," a distant god with amazing powers … but the Almighty abandoned them one day, leaving the Patapon to survive on their own. The poor Patapons failed, and rival tribes and terrible beasts quickly stole their lands, driving the Patapon to the very brink of extinction."
