The Story

One night in 1995, seven children around the world mysteriously vanish, and their only hope is a chubby, dorky 7th-grader named Chris.

Kidnapped, mocked, and transformed into a balloon, Chris manages to escape by floating off on a global adventure – driven by determination, superpowers, and cookies.

Lost in a 90’s cartoon-like universe where cyborg penguins and whiny vampires call the shots, Chris must prove he has what it takes to defeat the forces of villainy and make it home in time for dessert.

The Villains

YUKI SATOKA

A Japanese assassin with a love for ancient weaponry and balls of yarn, Satoka had a reputation as a mysterious mercenary, aiding both heroes and villains from time to time, her true allegiances unclear.

Now a high-ranking official in the Society of Villains, any trace of goodness seems to have long vanished. How she became a mutant cat has never been sufficiently explained, and not many have dared to ask.

Grigore Petrescu II “Count Junior”

He was an unholy terror before he became a vampire.  The spoiled son of a vicious nobleman in 17th century Romania, Junior loved candy, toys, and torturing villagers.

Now an immortal with a lust for magic power, a Napoleon complex, and absolutely no social awareness, Count Junior is after the one thing he’s never had a clue how to achieve – respect.

WESTON JAMES III "BUZZKILL"

The rebellious son of a wealthy Australian corporate president, Weston fell victim to a mysterious force lurking beneath the swamps of Malaysian Borneo while on an ecological expedition.  

Now mutated into an enormous insect, the figure nicknamed “Buzzkill” leads swarms of monstrous bugs against his father’s global business empire, with many innocent lives lost.

Does Square Enix Understand Midgar? (Final Fantasy 7 Remake)
