The year is 1999. You are a film critic all to aware of their own mortality. On top of that you've come up against your biggest challenge to date: reviewing "Pokemon: The First Movie".

Are you able to wade through your own confusion to produce a stellar review? Is film analysis really what you want to be doing with your life? What the fuck is a Mewtwo?

Features include multiple story paths, endings and an overarching sense of ennui.

Based on Polygon's "CoolGames Inc" podcast, episode 46 "Munchlax Analysis". Thanks to hosts Griffin McElroy and Nick Robinson for the idea and for making my week every week.

This is very good, great job! :D

Why, thank you very much!

My boss liked it! Phew, it's tough out there for movie reviewers huh?

Criticism ain't always easy!

FYI, I did a Let's Play (of sorts) of this game:

Oh my god dude, that is way too cool! Thanks so much for playing, sorry it glitched out on you at the end. Still trying to debug that.

Best game I've seen on Easily.

That is far too kind of you, thank you.

You are very much welcome.

This is brilliant. I didn't get fired, so that's cool, lmao

Thanks so much for playing!

thank YOU for making it!

very clever writing, although i can't seem to prevent myself from getting fired. i guess writing movie reviews is harder than i thought!

I really appreciate the kinds words, thank you!
