Story[edit | edit source]
The game starts with Pico getting ready to leave for school, until he is interrupted by a voice claiming to be his son from the future. Pico Jr. explains that if he doesn't get with Nene, that his existence will cease and, hence, he would be dead. Pico then leaves for school and meets up with his friend Darnell, and tells him about his morning experience. Darnell then gives the tutorial, and explains how he'll be fighting people since many boy have their eyes on Nene.
Darnell also reveals that he has 75 days to ask Nene to the dance, since Pico Jr was conceived at the dance, and she'll only accept if they have two successful dates. When Pico first tries to talk to her, an "emo" boy comes out of nowhere and starts mumbling about how Nene belongs to the boss. After defeating the emo, Pico starts a job to earn money to buy gifts for Nene.
Later, Pico starts to talk to Nene and the relationship grows. He begins going out with her. Once he has at least two successful dates, he'll automatically asks her out to the dance, and, of course, she accepts. The two meet at the dance and talk, but are interrupted by Cyclops, who is deeply infatuated with her. He then grabs her to "go to a quiet place", but Pico barges in and the two begin to fight. Once Cyclops is beaten, Pico and Nene "go to a quiet place" and we find out that Pico Jr isn't real, it's just Tom Fulp playing around.
