ENDGAME

An abstract interpretation of a "Don-Quixote"-esque journey taken by a main character after the final boss is defeated--the sudden relief of heavy stress felt by the hero/heroine creates a sudden and deep void taking an emotional toll, and must be filled. What to do now? If there are no enemies left, will the character's psyche create them itself? (Scoring by Andrew Mortega -- much thanks!)
