=== Backstory ===

I have a short standing tradition to take whoever I consider to be my Best Friend that year and make them a custom game. In 2022 it was my friend Justin, this is that game containing some slight modifications and meant to be canonical to my on-going 12-months-1-story project. Hope you enjoy!

Back in 2021, I gave myself a challenge, 12 games, 12 months, 1 story. While I successfully finished the challenge, the story still had a ways to go. This game is Cannon to the Project 2021 story. Play the rest of the games here: https://itch.io/c/2063306/12-games-12-months-1-story
