Greetings townsfolk of Cog City! It seems that our brilliant, quirky inventor Otto Tüftler has built a giant machine for Mr. Penny, the copper tycoon. Penny already seems to own the whole town, and we all know of his quest to “bring great innovation to our city.” But as you also know, some shady things have been happening… Our cows and crops are sick, and Tüftler’s face has been all over town in wanted posters with a bounty of 10,000 cogs! The sheriff is out on the hunt to bring him in, and after one of your neighbors tried to investigate, they were jailed by the sheriff! You, brave souls, need to go in and shut down that machine! You have precisely one hour deactivate it, free your neighbor, and steal Tüftler’s prototype power supply before the sheriff gets back! If you should fail, the illustrious Cog City is doomed, and greed will prevail! Godspeed!
