''The game starts with an amusing character creation system, which will allow you to sculpt the masterpiece that will follow you throughout the game, as well as the future episodes of Penny Arcade. For some people, this will be half the fun, however the game begins to give you a real taste of the humour that is set behind all the actions and you will be wanting to see for yourself.
The game starts out with a disembodied voice (the narrator) introducing you and your house, in your perfect street, in the midst of the 1920s. Just after the narrator commands you to do something about your lawn as it is looking rather awful, your house is crushed by a gigantic robot. Hot on the tail of said robot are Gabe and Tycho from the 'Startling Developments' detective agency.
Of course in your rage the natural thing to do is chase after this mechanical monstrosity. In doing so you meet up with Gabe and Tycho who you then join. Without giving too much of the story away, this is where the action really begins, and you will find yourself battling a range of enemies whilst uncovering interesting and exciting curiosities all around the world. The aim obviously is to take revenge on this giant robot, and of course, to find a new place to live (I can recommend the Shit Hole).''
