While the world is on the verge of being destroyed a Goddess asks you if you want her help to turn back time and beat the villain. Sounds like 90% of the Japanese RPGs out there, right? But if you answer no, the Goddess tells you: "was there ever any RPG that moved on by selecting no?" This happens during the first five minutes of Half-Minute Hero, and that's when you realize you're playing a game unlike any other."
