In a sudden break with familial tradition, you're sent away to stay with your irresponsible cousin Colt over the winter holidays while your parents enjoy their second honeymoon. What starts out as a charming slice of life story soon devolves into underground fight circuits, mysterious cross country courier jobs, a chimpanzees, and running from the mob.

A choice-based interactive fiction game inspired by 80s action-comedy films Smokey and the Bandit II and Any Which Way You Can with a little Dukes of Hazzard sprinkled on top, in which the protagonist begins as an 80s high school movie trope and must Learn A Valuable Lesson in order to get the best ending.

You can consider this a demo version or prototype of the upcoming Zeitgeist 1980s serial visual novel release - chapter 1, Rascal and the Boxer - can be found here: https://mcoorlim.itch.io/rascal-and-the-bandit
