Gengis Gets A Life
I felt the recent update was a bit lacking, so I'm giving you a present: two updates in one day! Yay for you!
Rise and shine, Gengis. Time to get up early for your new job.
Gengis woke up today with the "Feeling Lucky" perk. This means that we're more likely to have positive things happen to us! Let's see how the day plays out.
Luke doesn't get very flattering views of Gengis from that bowl.
We're going to eat quick so we can get to the workplace faster. I've still yet to see the "Floating Duck" actually float. Maybe there's an "ON" switch that I'm missing.
Gengis puts on his best clothes and brushes his teeth so he'll make a good first impression.
Unfortunately, Gengis doesn't have any toothpaste so he's forced to use handsoap instead.
No, I'm not joking.
Oh, I forgot to mention that Gengis's "best clothes" are a shirt with missing buttons, pants with grass stains, and socks because he doesn't have any good shoes.
Well, let's go to the spa and get a job as a--
Well what do we have here?
I guess Gengis's luck is already starting to have benefits. We found an "Unknown Rare Seed". Thankfully we're going to start gardening today, so this is really fortunate.
Gengis drives up in style in the Gengis-Mobile. He walks into the spa and we landed a job as a "Drink Curator".
Which is a fancy way of saying "The guy who gives drinks to people". Amazingly, this pays 33 dollars an hour, and it's a part-time job. Part-time jobs have less hours and lower pay than normal jobs, but you can get promotions and raises faster and you don't need to build skills since your preformance is based on your mood and timeliness.
Gengis's job doesn't start until tomorrow, so let's start learning how to garden. Since Gengis doesn't have any skill in gardening, he doesn't even know how to dig a hole. So we go to the bookstore and snag ourselves a garden book for a few bucks. Since Gengis is a born salesman, he gets a slight discount on things.
Now that we have a book, let's go to the library. When you're in the library, you can finish books faster.
It's a pretty fancy library too, it even has a fire place!
Of course, Gengis has to check for Santa Claus before he can read in peace.
Since he's at the fireplace, let's light a fire. Fire gives everyone in the room a happiness boost and also relieves stress.
Gengis is looking pretty refined in this shot.
But that's only because you can't see the grass stains on his pants.
With our glorious whole skill point in gardening, some seeds magically appear in Gengis's pants. Why did I type that?
Anyways, I built a little area in front of Gengis's Crap-a-Shack so he can plant some of the seeds he just got.
Unfortunately, we can't plant the super-secret-special rare seed until Gengis has 7 skill points in gardening, which may take a while.
Oh, that reminds me! We forgot to meet the neighbors to the left of Gengis's house.
They're a little bit trashy. Har har har.
Can you imagine seeing this from your window?
Look at that grin. Gengis knows what he's doing and he's loving every single second of it.
Anyways, Gengis found some scrap metal. If we get enough, we can eventually craft a random hat.
Okay no, scrap metal can be used to invent some cool new things, but only if we have an inventing table. Which costs a lot. So we're just going to go to the department store and off-load all this stuff we "borrowed" from our neighbors.
Hey, wait a second...
Heh, well don't mind if I do!
Since we're in a "borrowing" mood, let's take a few of our neighbor's grapes while we're at it. They won't miss 'em, they have like three other grape vines anyways.
Besides, it's not stealing. We're just, uh, "moving" their grapes to the front of our house.
Now THIS is stealing.
Man, Gengis is just having a blast. Look at him.
As we head to sell our scrap at the department store, Gengis tries riding his bike one-handed with impressive results.
Hey, it's Dennis! Something smells fishy here...
Oh wait no, that's just because Dennis forgot to bathe today.
Well, no matter. We sell our scrap for about 40 bucks and buy a new painting while we're at it, for about 10 dollars. We'll look at it later.
Oh hey! I remember making this.
This is an arcade I made. We don't have anything better to do, so let's play some video games while we're here.
All the machines are taken, so let's ask this pale dork to let us play.
Yeah, move it or lose it buddy. And see a dentist while you're at it.
Wait a second...
He got out of the way, so Gengis spent a few minutes playing this manly game of cute pink cartoon rabbits.
Although the designs on the arcade cabinet are a bit disturbing.
Hah, oh Gengis. You lost on the first level in this game for 5-year-old girls?
While we were playing, Gengis overhead somebody talking about an eating contest at the diner we were at yesterday.
Gengis is a bit hungry, so let's get some free food and see if we can't snag some dosh while we're at it.
Not only did Gengis get a good helping of food, he also won the eating contest! For an entire grand in prize money! Wow! I guess being an overweight low-life has its advantages.
Wow, we're seeing Dennis all over the place.
Anyways, Gengis is "stuffed". This happens when you eat to much food. If you don't exercise after being "stuffed" you'll get a little bit fatter and lose some muscle tone.
Let's head home and look at our 10 dollar painting, shall we?
Okay, I'm noticing a trend with Gengis's taste in art here.
Like the finger-painting, Gengis adored this thing.
Anyways, we used our prize money to buy a new shower. The previous shower had a chance to cause a "cold shower", which was a negative mood booster. This shower, however, has a same chance of causing a different effect, an "exhilarating shower", which is a positive mood booster.
So that's the end for today.
Looks like Gengis's luck came in handy this time around, and we got a few skill points in the process.
If you have any suggestions on how Gengis should spend tomorrow, additions or changes in his clothing or house, or anything else just post them in this thread.
