Premise
Write a game which involves either New Orleans or Io. An NPC in your game will be named "Brutus the Chihuahua", although this character will not be a chihuahua. Either the PC or the villain will be attempting to construct something out of croutons. Bonus points will be awarded for the use of hamsters, yaks, aluminum, or the words "punt", "bass", or "curd". You have two hours, beginning at 7:00 pm EST. Go!
