How did Eugene get hired at the police station?

Sorry if this is something that's revealed later in the game - I'm holding off on purchasing until the Switch version is released as the PC version doesn't register all my clicks properly. I take it the physical releases will be PC and PlayStation only?

Anyway, yeah, I'm just curious if there's any backstory as to how Eugene got hired. Who would want a visually, mentally and... uh... hearingly(?) handicapped police officer who just plays a version of Pong all day? Is the police station trying to fulfil some disability programme?

I know it's just a silly little game with an absurd amount of text, but the tale of Eugene, if there is any, is bugging me. Thanks for your time.

Hi,

It's weird, no one mentioned the PC version "not registering clicks" before. Must be something on your computer?

And about Eugene, let's just say there are minimum quotas for the police staff so they took the first person who wanted the "job" :p

Eh, fair enough.

I've downloaded the full version of the PC release now. Seems about the same - clicking for longer seems to be the solution. Some rooms also seem to have high CPU usage? But whatever - it's playable. Not tried using an Xbox controller.

I've also tried doing some speedrun practice on the Nintendo Switch demo, just 'cause I have nothing better to do. When doing this, sometimes music fails to fire, or you end up being in an area with the previous area's music playing. I also managed to get the game in a strange state where the police officer had to be shown the newspaper again, then wanted another ice cream. By this point Bjorn only had €0.25 so the save file had to be discarded. Not sure how I managed that, but it was the result of fast tapping on the touchscreen. But playing the game regularly there are no issues.

Hi, I'm not working on a sequel but a new adventure game with a bit of different tone, but still cartoonish characters. I haven't announced it yet but follow me on Twitter (https://twitter.com/COWCATGames) or on my Discord group (https://discord.gg/WRaJAk5) to find out more!
