Chapter 1: Welcome Home

Spins McGee awakens in a drab metal room with a sword. He mumbles under his breath about the room's poor condition, before instinctively equipping the sword and running out into the next drab metal room. Confused, he goes back to the first room, then to the second, before realizing where he is - the labs of Voidco.

Immediately trying to escape, Spins panics, setting off the alarms and deploying several Enforcement Units. Grabbing the Beaker from a limping Science Unit, he runs from the law and fights his way to the Food Court. There, he meets Dobo, a walking nuclear reactor. Dobo agrees to fight off the Enforcement Units if Spins can get his licorice for him.

Spins McGee runs to the vending machine and obtains Licorice, which he delivers to Dobo. Dobo quickly stuffs the bag in his radioactive core, compressing it into unstable 'licoricium'. He walks off to deliver this to an unknown source - Spins McGee follows Dobo for a while but gives up before he reaches his destination and looks for the storage sector where his arms should be.

Chapter 2: The Club

Spins McGee reaches the storage unit, now guarded by a machine with several arms. The machine explains that Spins needs to high five him to get into the club, confusing Spins. Attempting to muscle past, Spins gets slammed away.
