Trashman Through Time was halted in 1986 by a mysterious traveler from the future, known only as 'Stanley'. We know now that he had traveled backward through time & trash from the year 2012 to prevent the completion of Trashman Through Time so that it could be completed 25 years later by the sound music group Uzi Rash, but not as a video game, as conceptual interactive cd rom record album lazerdisk. it would transcend the video game platform into a new medium.
while attempting to return to his own time (2012) to witness the rapture, something 'went rong' with the time device, and Stanley was mistakenly sent to 1981. He was apprehended by authorities and committed to a maximum security mental facility, where the father of New Generation Software programmer Malcolm E. Evans was employed as a mop steward. Having heard the tale of Stanley (the real Trashman Through Time) from his father over a meal of spaghetti and whole milk, he was inspired to create the Trashman trilogy of video games, which would culminate with the release of the final game Trashman Through Time. The entire game series, therefore, becomes an Ontological Paradox, with no ultimate source, or, rather, the impetus for the creation of Trashman was Stanley himself, who had traveled back in time to prevent the completion of the series that he unwittingly inspired BY traveling into the past.
