Find out who you really are and then foil the alien conspiracy in Flashback: The Quest for Identity. Learn about the companies involved in bringing this game to the Jaguar, what it took to make the cutscenes, and how to recover your teleport receiver with one weird trick. Along the way, we uncover a previously-unknown cheat code, dig into all the various ports and their differences, and argue about whether the Titan in this game is a planet or a moon.
Also included is feedback, lots of feedback, from Bryce, Andrew, Derek, Hugh, TrekMD, Ben, Mike, Arethius, Rhett, and Hugues! Plus storytime.
