And then practically overnight, Hogo OS disappeared.
What happened is one of the biggest mysteries of the 1980s. Rumors say that an evil mastermind attempted to use Hogo OS to take over the world, and was only stopped by the bumbling actions of a complete idiot. Those rumors are true.
The year is 1985. And you are that idiot.
