He decides to start his own multi-functional company but to make money he sells all of his possessions including a copy of "Air Traffic Panic" (one of the many of the fourth wall breaking in the game). The game wants Padge to return and after playing it one last time, he realises that he misses his old job. He goes to sleep on a low note. But the "Gods of Gaming" decide to give him some limelight again and plonk Padge in the Land of Forgotten Heroes.
