The start of this game takes place sometime after the introduction of LISA: THE PAINFUL. The player controls the main character, Lisa Armstrong. The story follows her descent into madness, which stems from the physical and sexual abuse inflicted on her by Marty Armstrong. The goal is to obtain VHS tapes of Lisa's memories while exploring the game's various zones.
In the game's beginning sequence, Lisa is forced to remain in her room by Marty and is not allowed in any other rooms of the house. If he catches her outside her room, she is sent straight back. Her room is bare and very unclean. During the start of the game, the relationship between Lisa and Marty is unknown. The player might assume that she is his wife or daughter.
Marty is found on the lower level of his house, constantly watching television. He is surrounded by broken bottles and other garbage. Marty plays the role of Lisa's captor and abuser, holding her prisoner inside his home.
- "Did you really think that would work? I'll never leave you. You have to swallow me, get over it. "
Rick is notable for being the only character in the game apart from Marty and Lisa. His design strongly evokes the shape of a human penis, and his dialog has obvious phallic connotations. He could be Lisa's own representation of Marty's member, influenced by the rapes she endured. The player must kill him many times in order to proceed.
Marty's HouseEditMarty's house, inside Lisa's room. Lisa's room is unclean, with clothes strewn everywhere. Outside her room is a hallway leading to Marty's bedroom and downstairs. If the player examines Marty's door, Lisa will say that he always keeps it locked. Downstairs is a living room and a kitchen, as well as a TV that Marty is parked in front of. If the player navigates Lisa to the right or in front of Marty, he forces her back to her room. The first goal of the game is to escape from Marty's house, which can be achieved by heading left, behind the couch, and out the door.
Outside Marty'sEditLisa attempts to run away, she walks through a green forest, leaving Marty's dilapidated house behind. The lighting brightens and waterfalls are seen and heard in the background. As she continues, however, she steps into a dark fantasy where Marty's face is plastered all over the sky. The peaceful sounds of the forest are replaced by the hellish sounds of Marty's TV. After running along a narrow walkway covered with trash and rubbish, she again sees Marty, who asks if Lisa is running away again. The game cannot continue until the player says yes. He tells her that it is useless to try to escape. Lisa is then transported to the main hub of the game, the Lobby.
The LobbyEditYume Nikki called the Nexus, since each door leads to a different area. There is a bed to the right, which serves as a save point. There is also a VHS player to the left. To play VHS tapes here, Lisa first has to acquire them. The doors at the top lead to the following zones:

(Note: this vomit noise is the same sound sample used in the LISA: THE PAINFUL song, Work Harder, but it is sampled higher.) Marty in varying stages of drunkenness. This area may be meant to represent Marty when he drinks regularly. Many of these drunken Martys have lewd dialogue, such as "I'd fruuck her, is she huh? ooooooh...." and "Fuck ta fuck ya..." The room to the top right is where the bartender is. He will give Lisa some Rum. Bring this to the cement house in the north end of town. Marty, hinting at the hidden path behind the cement building. Move along the left of it and head up to find the path. Follow it until its end, where you will see yet another image of Marty. He will give Lisa a Banana, and then ask "Was it worth it?"

You will still get sent back if they touch you.

Martys, as well as opening a staircase to the upper left. Walk down this staircase.

Wait for the right time and walk through. For the second puzzle, push the rock over the spider Blocking the doorway to trap it. For the third puzzle, move the rocks to block only the three fast Marty spiders, then push them towards the wall. The last rock can be used to block the Marty in the doorway.

- "Oh hi. My name is Rick. I like exploring caves. I like friction. Oh. and I'm a sensitive guy as well. ... But you already knew that didn't you... I hope to see you soon... Don't run too far... I'll be waiting...."
You will be returned to the Lobby.
The MansionEditMarty. To continue, Lisa has to physically enter Marty from the left hand side of his body. This is symbolic of Lisa being unable to forget the moment in which she is sexually abused.

- "You really don't get it do you? You really thought you could forget? Why are you trying so hard?... Accept it. You can't fight something that already happened. There is no understanding, no purpose... There is only life, and this one is yours. Accept it. I'm here to stay."
- ―Vision of Marty
Lisa went through, and regardless of how much she runs, Marty will always be inside her head tormenting her. No matter how far she walks, Marty's face will always resonate in her mind.
Lisa will be confronted with a image of her mother from the back. This confirms to the player that Lisa is Marty's daughter and not his wife. Knowing this explains the sick imagery contained within her psyche. Her mother will say:
- "Lisa... is that you? Lisa I. I'm sorRy. III'mmmM soRRy... LiiiiisSSAAAAAAA..... I Did'NT waaaaaa.... NNt Too LEEEave. Liiiiiisssssaaaaa. I didddd'nt WANT to diiiEEE. Liisa, I looveEE YouU. Doooon't gooooo!! YOOu can't.... You can't run... "
- Austin Jorgensen has stated in interviews that the idea behind LISA: The First (and, later, Brad in The Painful RPG) was based on an ex-girlfriend who was scarred by memories of her abusive father, as it had made him realize how much memories can affect people.
