In "We Become What We Behold," tranquility seems dull, affection appears bothersome, and crickets remain mere crickets. What truly sparks people's interest? Is it anger and hatred, perhaps? You initiate the game by capturing a minor disagreement between a circle and square, then magnifying it through media exposure to attract more viewers. This action escalates the tension between circles and squares, giving rise to a cycle of fury and animosity that swiftly escalates towards an explosive climax.
