Bodymore, Murdaland. You're a morally upstanding lieutenant put in charge of a squad of misfits, malcontents, and castoffs trying to bring down Baltimore's biggest drug dealers, while also trying to reform the self-dealing, irredeemably corrupt Baltimore PD. But you're hiding a dark secret: you are an octopus, and navigating the world of politics and crime with fumblecore controls underscores the sisyphean magnitude of your tasks. This is Octo-Wire.

An open world action RPG set in space, but you play as a fat orange tabby. I call it: Garfield. (Yes I made this joke before.)
