After the construction, things will start to turn weird as Fran takes over and the QTE will turn into a 2bit game mode where you will control her in Final Fantasy-style gaming. Defeat the Sponsor-bot. Do the following steps to defeat the monstrous RPG boss:

  • Click on Dealing with Self-Hatred
  • Click on Anger Kicks Ass!
