The planned expansion of the Smallgreens Mall is threatening to overrun and demolish the Smallgreens Public Park. The park is a pleasant, if not especially large, place for children to play and families to picnic. Full of lush trees and fountains, it would truly be a shame to see it go. A small group of nature-minded citizens have banded together to organize a protest against the destruction of the park. This effort to stand up to the seemingly unstoppable sprawl of soulless urbanization has been scheduled for today, and is in full swing!

Things aren't proceeding quite as expected, though. The turnout is good, but these protesters seem to be from an odd stock...more so than usual. Who are all these people? We have everyone from assholes in suits to geriatrics from South America! Don't even get me started on that guy in the corner wearing the golden mask. Nonetheless, they seem earnest enough. Any help saving the park is appreciated, so nobody's complaining. We're just going to have to do our best with what we have.

Smallgreens is a game about many things, exploring themes such as social obligations, karma, forgiveness, and the grim nature of reality. If you enjoy the flavorings of environmental activism, conspiracy theory, H. P. Lovecraft, Judeo-Christian mysticism, social dramas, or even Nazi war crimes you will surely enjoy playing along.
