: After that, uh… riveting conversation with what may or may not have been Alex’s dad, we get put into a blatant ripoff of Moonside from Earthbound. It looks like Ending A won, so we’ll do Ending A first.
: I don’t know why they put a healing item here, because as far as I know, there is no more actual combat for the rest of the game. I didn’t actually FINISH Ending A on this recording run, however, so there might be combat that I don’t know about yet as of the time I’m starting this update.
: You might ask what triggers Ending B, and it’s that tree over there. We COULD trigger that this run and still get Ending A, but I won’t.
: I wish I knew what the reason was for choosing this artstyle to show reality breaking down. Moonside looked the way it did because it sort of symbolized things that the characters didn’t understand: it had an enemy called Abstract Art.
: Following the path shows us New York (gotta love how you can see what are apparently the Twin Towers in the front) with a giant Alex-faced meteor about to crash into it.
: “We’ve been waiting here forever!”
: “What’s going on?”
: “You okay, dude? You look terrible.”
: “Yeah, maybe you should sit in the back seat, far away from me in case you barf.”
: “Seriously, are you okay?”
: “Yeah, let’s get going.”
: Some of you have been asking why the developers chose the name YIIK when the game has seemingly nothing to do with the Y2K bug other than passing mentions. I’m pretty sure they did it solely so they could make a Prince reference.
: “I can’t remember the last time I did something fun for the new year!!”
: “We should leave now if we want to get shopping in before the new year!”
: I haven’t gone back through Ending A yet, but when I recorded this I was getting massive amounts of audio desync and I’m not entirely sure it was intentional. The voiceacting would be three or four lines behind where the text was.
: “How can you even think about shopping? Wasn’t it just Christmas?”
: “Exactly. All the best stuff is on sale now.”
: Typo! That’s what, 15? I bet if they’d hired a professional writer instead of blowing all their money on voiceacting, this wouldn’t be an issue.
: “Why did I feel like this? Why was it that when I looked at Vella I felt as if I was looking at someone else altogether?”
: “When I looked at Proto-Michael, I felt like I was looking at a beautiful image that was stained. His features were too rounded.”
: Come to think of it, why doesn’t Michael’s sprite thing reflect the whole shirtless dipshit thing he had going on?
: “Claudio, Chondra. How were they even talking? I looked at their mouths moving up and down and felt a strange detachment to them. As if they were speaking a foreign language without making a sound at all.”
: “I turned to the Essentia. Her face felt blurry and out of focus.”
: “No. What’s happening?”
: “This reality has already started to break.”
: “But this didn’t start today, did it?”
: “I see, so you have noticed.”
: “Only just today. I’ve been pretty oblivious to things I don’t want to see, if you haven’t noticed.”
: “So would you like me to clear some things up?”
: “Of course. Give it to me straight.”
: “Our souls are in constant transit if we do not enter the Soul Space and take control. So this Michael here is not the Michael from your childhood. Proto-Michael is, as he is a combination of all Michaels.”
: You have to love how the camera never moves from this spot for a good… probably two minutes?
: “So did the old Michael leave this reality?”
: “No. This reality is shattered. Lost souls in the Soul Space are slipping in and out of it.”
: “So Claudio and Chondra?”
: “That is one I’ll let you figure out yourself. It will be good for you.”
: “So does Sammy. When Sammy left, Vella took her place.”
: A lot of people have also pointed out in the thread that the entire mechanic of how souls work in this game makes no sense and is wildly inconsistent. For the record, Vella has stated before that she’d been in Alex’s reality for a year - meaning that this shouldn’t be possible.
: “I took advantage of Sammy leaving this reality and forced my spirit into this physical space. Understand so far?”
: This also makes no sense, because they’ve established that it’s a one to one thing: one soul leaves, another can enter. So no, I don’t understand what the fuck the point is.
: “Michael, like Rory, Chondra, Claudio, and myself, are important to you in every reality. When this reality broke, they entered. So a version of Michael, Rory, Chondra, and Claudio all come to this reality.”
: Okay, so did this happen years ago, or just now, or what even the fuck? This feels like I’m reading a bad fanfic where the author can’t keep anything straight.
: “For what?”
: “To find you. To find me. We’re going to help them.”
: “How? This reality is broken. And from what I can tell, it’s been broken for a long time.”
: “I do not know. We must first see what form you take to destroy this reality.”
: Here’s another thing I don’t get. From what the robot is saying, their reality was already collapsing in on itself before Alex even got here, and was probably going to wind up dying anyway. The way they present it, this weird drawing shit would’ve happened even if Alex WASN’T going to destroy reality.
: “Why does it have to be me?”
: “If it wasn’t you, it would be me, or Rory, or Claudio. We are all capable of destruction. We can create or destroy. The choice is ultimately yours.”
: “Then I choose not to destroy this reality!”
: “Excellent. Now if only your parallel selves agreed.”
: “I was playing the events of the past year over and over again in my head. I thought back to when I first arrived in Frankton. Everything felt so different.”
: “Seeing Michael again. It seemed so normal for him to live next to me. Then we met Vella and that felt the most real out of all the things that had happened so far.”
: If I had to guess, the answer is from you and because she hates you.
: “Probably for the best. This reality has gone to literal shit. Did she, perhaps, sense that the end was coming? Was her reality torn apart along with mine?”
: “I thought about the Mind Dungeon. I had never heard of a Mind Dungeon before, and yet I accepted it.”
: “There you can go and toughen up and learn to do magic. Magic? Why hadn’t I found this strange? It was all so obvious from the start. This wasn’t my reality.”
: “Mind Dungeons, cats with moustaches, beautiful women who come in and out of my life, mysterious pan-dimensional androids.”
: “This wasn’t my life. Of course something had to be wrong. I had sensed it all along, but I was so intrigued by the fun and mystery of it all. Who wouldn’t be?”
: New York is pretty much just a cutscene you walk through, which is pretty accurate from what I remember the one time I visited there.
: You’ll notice that once we get into New York, all of the characters are back on-model.
: Ahh yes, New York’s famous Food District. Who could ever visit New York and not see the Food District, right next to the Business District and the Ey I’m Walkin’ Here District.
: At this point I’m starting to question whether this was an actual design choice or they just ran out of money.
: “Would we survive the night? Would this reality continue to exist? What would happen to our souls? I wished I could jump inside their brains and make them remember, but were these even the same friends I was with the past year?”
: If you’re wondering, the blue rings on the map are all shops. We don’t need any of them because there are no more real fights left.
: Ahh, this must be the famous Times Square, located straight in the heart of the Anime District.
: “I don’t know how, but I can feel it in my bones. This is how it ends.”
: You ever just steal something right out of Majora’s Mask, but it’s never quite the same?
: Meet the Proto Meteor. It’s the laziest boss design ever.
: “THIS IS ALL SO FAMILIAR!”
: "Prepare to fight! This is it. This is the end!’
: “Okay guys, we trained for this!”
: “WHAT DO YOU MEAN WE TRAINED FOR THIS!? Isn’t that Alex’s face!? HOLY SHIT!!!”
: “Michael!!! You’re back!”
: “I never left.”
: “Holy shit. I remember everything now. What’s happening!?”
: “I hope that means you all remember what’s going on here!”
: We’ve got this. Alex has over 110 strength and is at an 89% chance to critical.
: Yeah, I’m thinking that’ll do it… only it doesn’t. The Proto Comet is an entirely scripted boss fight that is a BLATANT ripoff of Persona 4’s final boss. It can be reduced to 1HP, but cannot die.
: As soon as it can start taking turns, the Proto Comet starts banishing your party members, one by one.
: Eventually, you’re left with just Essentia and Alex.
: This is basically a colossal ripoff of Persona 4’s final boss, which unlike the Proto Comet had an actual boss fight before it got into the scripted stuff. However, the way that Atlus did it was far better: all of your party members have an ability by default where they will step in automatically to take an otherwise-lethal hit for the main character. The final boss in Persona 4 exploits this by targeting the main character with an instakill attack, and one of your party members will take the hit and die instead.
: “I am all that’s left. How did this happen? How can I have everything one moment and be so completely alone the next?”
: “My world is destroyed. I am destroyed.”
: So what you’re saying is… you know you let us down? You’ve been a fool to yourself? You thought that you could live for no one else? You’ll never love again, your world is ending?
: “We could live alone on this island forever. You and me, what do you say pal?”
: “Yeah, you’re right. That’s a terrible idea.”
: This actually would’ve been a pretty good ending by itself. Alex is so self-absorbed that he ultimately winds up in his house with only himself for company until the end of time.
: “Where you do think the Essentia 2000 is?”
: “I don’t know, but I really wish she was here. And Vella. And everyone else.”
: “Video games, music, TV, expensive record players, all of these material things have value, but they can’t be valued above the people in your life.”
: “Vella lost the man who hurt her. Sammy lost her mind. Rory lost his sister. What had I ever lost?”
: “It’s a funny thing, to grow up with everything in life. When I was four I vacationed to Italy one summer. I did every year for the next two years and you know how much I appreciated that travel?”
: I don’t think I’ve ever heard anyone use the phrase “every year for the next two years”.
: “You guessed it, I didn’t appreciate it all.”
: Typos! Typos fucking everywhere!
: “I met a kid in college who had never left the state. He said his parents didn’t take vacations. I didn’t realize people didn’t travel.”
: So you… met Charlie from Always Sunny in Philadelphia? Alex would fit right in on that show, in that he’d absolutely be a side character who gets destroyed every time he shows up.
: This is among the longest monologues in the game, at a whopping 35 text boxes. Nothing to look at, just a black screen with text on it.
: “But now that there is nothing there, I realize – I realize what a little shit I was. I thought about my soul and whatever the hell that meant. Did I even believe in souls?”
: “Well, I did to a certain extent. I think the problem is people of a hundred different ideologies say different words. Soul means one thing to one person and something entirely different to another.”
: “I thought about my mom, my sister, about Vella, Rory, Michael, Chondra, and Claudio. I thought about all my friends from college, my past girlfriends, teachers, random people on buses.”
: As much as I hate to do this twice in an update… what you’re saying is that you heard telephones, opera house, favorite melodies? Saw boys, toys, electric irons and TVs? Your brain hurt like a warehouse, it had no room to spare? You had to cram so many things to store everything in there. And all the fat skinny people? And all the tall short people? And all the somebody people? And all the nobody people? Never thought you’d meet so many people?
: “And they were all gone. Simply gone. Where? When you die you don’t enter the Soul Space. Soul Space isn’t heaven or anything stupid like that. It’s the place between places. No, that’s not entirely right though, is it? It’s the place-between the place between places.”
: So what you’re saying is that you’re staring out there, you take a breath, there’s nothing left? Now you’ll (hopefully) close your eyes for one last time and say goodbye? These voices telling you let it go - let it all go? You try and drown but you can’t say no? This endless nightmare has just begun?
: “If I stayed here, I’d die. I’d starve. I’d go insane from the loneliness. The only place to go was to that place between places, the Soul Space. But how? How do I do this? How do I separate my brain from my body?”
: “How can the physical and metaphysical be separated? What happens to a mind lost to the Soul Space? What becomes of it? There were so many questions I should have asked The Essentia 2000.”
: “You’re now face to face with God. You can ask him any question, and all you can ask is what’s for dinner. This is me in a nutshell. I lacked appreciation for those around me. I should have – no, don’t think like that Alex.”
: “There is no use beating myself up. Is there? I don’t even know any more. ‘Don’t be so hard on yourself.’ This is what my mother said to me whenever I made a mistake. But was this the mantra I really should have adopted?”
: That’s the entire point! You’re a fucking failure!
: This is apparently the Soul Space. In front of us, we have a cosmic horror too awful to look at. The blue arrow tells us which direction we need to go.
: Hey guys, remember Planet of the Apes? Huh? Do ya? Do ya?
: “I’m terrified. I miss my friends, my family.”
: “I’m sorry.”
: “What do you mean you don’t have answers!? You always have something to say!”
: I haven’t seen it in years, and I’m too lazy to look it up, but I’m pretty sure those last two lines are stolen straight out of Cast Away.
: Moving around in the Soul Space is incredibly slow, and it took me a good few minutes to find our next destination even with the arrow.
: Now we’re on the Planet of the Dipshits. I’m pretty sure all of these Alexes here are earlier concepts for the main character.
: “Yes. Can you tell me where here is?”
: “It’s your room, of course.”
: “Look, I just got to the Soul Space. I’m lost. I’m so confused. I don’t even know what we do here in the Soul Space.”
: “Ah, I understand. Well, we’ve got a bunch of the latest games from each reality, some dope beats. So, just kick back and enjoy.”
: “I was with my friends, and then something happened. I was myself, but I was also a meteorite. They’re all dead, I think.”
: “Shit are you serious?”
: “Of course I’m serious! What kind of question is that!?”
: “Usually we leave our body when she comes to get us.”
: “Wait, who is she?”
: “Well the Essentia 2000. She appears to us, warns us, shows us what we’re going to do, and we get the hell out of reality before anyone gets hurt.”
: Wait, what? How does that… how does that make sense?
: “I didn’t do that. I thought I could fight it!!”
: “Phffttt. Wow, you’re a brave one. But ahh— it’s impossible. How could the decent few of us actually stand a chance? There are just too many of them.”
: “Too many of who?”
: “Look, I think it would be best if you just relaxed a bit. You’re going to give yourself a panic attack. Whatever you do, just don’t go to the other side of the rock. We’re not allowed to go there.”
: The other Alexes don’t have much interesting to say, but…
: Apparently, Chondra’s missing brother is an Alex? I don’t quite get how that works.
: Behind the rock is a group of Alex in a hood.
: I’m pretty sure that agreeing to join just gives you a game over… even though the dialog that follows afterward seems like you join them anyway.
: “I was losing a part of myself. I was a burst pipe and I was the plumber desperately trying to hold it altogether.”
: I think the Allansons need to be put into a new language classification where they technically speak English, but they’re so bad at it that they actually do not know a language.
: “I was a metaphor for a metaphor for a sad, sad man.”
: I don’t have much else to talk about, so let’s talk about how I bought a copy of After Dark and read about 2/3 of the way through it.
: “Each time, it was as if I lost all my friends again.”
: After Dark is not a great book. It reads like a stageplay, and the whole thing kinda feels like Haruki Murakami is trying to give you an elevator pitch for a movie he wants to make, only the movie is about nothing.
: “My mom, my sister, my dad. Everyone I couldn’t remember. Why couldn’t I recall everyone?”
: As someone pointed out, all of those cutscenes with Essentia in them were basically ripped straight from the book. Every other chapter is basically “We are looking in on a Japanese woman sleeping on her bed, only there’s a man in a suit with a mask on the TV” to the point where I was reading a few pages in and then just skipping the entire chapter because nothing fucking happens.
: “I was the sole survivor of my reality. It would be a fitting fate. I tried with earnest desperation to hold on to what made me, me.”
: “A star in the distance. You’re gone again. Your soul’s destroyed. I don’t know how many times I’ve witnessed the loss of a reality at the hands of myself.”
: “What could I do? I wasn’t strong enough on my own to defeat so many. I was cold. I didn’t have a body, and yet somehow I was cold. Desperately I longed for – what was her name? She was a woman, made of plastic.”
: It’s called a realdoll, dipshit.
: “She was essential to my survival. How had she saved me? Why didn’t I do…? What was her name? What was my name?”
: Your name is shut the fuck up and get on with this goddamn game already.
: “I needed to keep my mind. I needed to stay me as long as possible. But for what? What was I going to figure out? What was I going to accomplish? Why am I here?”
: I’m just going to go ahead and skip the rest of this monologue, because it’s a recap of the entire game up to this point.
: This isn’t really a dungeon, in that there’s no enemies. The basic idea is that we need to get to where Michael is, but the stupid panda is in the way. There’s two ways you could do this “puzzle” - there’s chests you can pick up that have small amounts of cash in them.
: Opening any of the chests will cause this guy to spawn. He sells keys.
: You can pretty much guess where this is going to go. Alex has lost all of his money and all the items we picked up throughout the game - but he still has his equipment. Given that Alex is strong enough to kill anything with a single LP Toss at this point, you can also sell his equipment off and just buy all three keys in one go.
: You’ll notice that Rory is standing on a little platform near where the new path opened going up to the stage. I don’t know if there’s a separate thing to rescue Rory or not if you didn’t let him die, but I suspect there isn’t.
: The annoying part is that you have to open this chest, go back to the store, sell the Panda Key and buy the Dali Key before you can progress.
: Here, we have to open that chest you can see in the background, and then go back and sell the Dali Key to afford the Entity Key.
: What I don’t quite get is why he doesn’t understand that his friends are dead. I mean, he saw it happen right in front of him.
: “How is the meteorite not already here? Something is happening. Somewhere in the isolated recesses of my mind, like a warm light in the distance, an idea is forming.”
: “A completely human, genius, and kind-intentioned idea. Something that no other version of me would do.”
: You’re going to kill yourself so that the meteor can’t keep killing people? That’d be nice.
: “And now my body is filled with that overwhelming feeling that I am about to do the right thing. I always made a choice, a lazy choice. Not today. Today, I choose differently.”
: “Could I intervene? Was there another me in this reality?”
: “I’m afraid that this reality will soon end. And once again, you’ll be destroyed, along with Vella, Chondra, Michael, and Claudio.”
: In the console versions of the game, this scene changes slightly based on what console you’re using. What would’ve been cool is if for PC they detected your monitor’s resolution and changed how the display Alex is on looks based on that: curved if it’s an ultrawide, flat if it’s a standard 1080p or 4k.
: In the end though, this is just a shittier version of Omikron The Nomad Soul’s opening, and that’s a fucking David Cage game.
: Let’s take a look at what this scene looks like on the Switch. For one, it’s zoomed out more, but I think that’s because I was clicking through the dialog relatively fast.
: What the fuck? What the everloving fuck? If I found out I was an Alex clone, I’d probably commit soul suicide right then and there. I mean, it’s not like…
: Oh, fuck. I KNEW there was a reason that creepy old lady told me I shouldn’t LP this game. I fucking knew it!
: Naturally, I hit no.
: God dammit you had to make a fucking Batman reference. Fuck it, I’m going full on Chaos. Let the galaxy burn! Blood for the blood god!
: The game then makes you load your last save, which in my case… was back when I was skipping days at the end of the last update. Whoops. Anyway, now I’ll start recording again and find out if I actually get to LP Toss a final boss to death.
: Anyway, I re-recorded. This re-recording was… ill-fated. On the PC version by the way, you get a PS4 and a Vita.
: “There are many things I have to tell you. But to tell you everything would probably take a very long time. Hours, maybe.”
: “I wish I could say how sorry I am for everything that has happened to you in your parallel lives because of my mistakes. Unfortunately, I lacked the courage to act in the past, but I plan to make up for it today.”
: “In many lives, you were different things to me. But names and relationships don’t matter. What matters now is how much you’ve always been there for me. I want you all to join me once again and do something absolutely crazy.”
: Fuck you, only Dante gets to say that.
: I plan on confronting Proto-me, and destroying it. I don’t know what will happen when I get there, but I’ve faced this thing before and I think I know what I need to do to defeat it – me – well, us.’
: This is where all those names we used at the start come in. Unfortunately, we won’t be seeing Sephiroth… because that’s Rory. Sorry to whoever suggested that.
: “No problem! So, what’s going on?”
: I feel like this game could’ve been five minutes long, and this would have been the entire story.
: Unfortunately, we don’t get to use Essentia anymore, because fighting with a 1970s-style tape drive would be too unique.
: Here’s the final dungeon. You can probably guess what we need to do. The chest on the left contains all of the items we had before the world got destroyed. The one on the right has four Ambrosias. Now, what I didn’t know going into this is that this segment is EXTREMELY FUCKING GLITCHY, ESPECIALLY IF YOU USE LP TOSS.
: By the way, here’s our new party. We have the worst girl from Fire Emblem, the worst Danganronpa, and depression. There’s always depression. Plagiarism is basically Alex but with worse stats. Hilariously, the female player character uses Alex’s voice during combat and has extremely broken animations because they use a sword and not a record.
: Our first mini-boss is Alex, but masturbating.
: “What the hell are you consuming realities for?! Why do you have to do this!!”
: This is Plagiarism, by the way. TV Head Alex poisons on hit, but that won’t matter because…
: This fight was “interesting”, and by interesting I mean the boss dodged my first LP Toss so Plagiarism had to use hers.
: Even with her strength being a bit over half what Alex’s is, she still does 5200 damage.
: Chris Niosi, everybody.
: Like all the other clones, Fat Alex can dodge LP Toss.
: What he can’t dodge is having the book thrown at him. In this case, the book is After Dark by Haruki Murakami.
: There’s a scene after this with Sammy’s ghost that I am going to skip. Let’s just pretend that he tries to kiss her and she slaps him. That’s the canon version of events.
: So if you’re wondering what the fuck is going on, this is the Essentia 995. If you paid attention (I sure as hell didn’t), this is the robot Yuzu was working on before we killed him.
: “…Essentia…? What is this? How are you here?”
: “I’m really surprised to see you here. I’m glad you made it this far.”
: That would mean this fuckstick is the version of Alex that ultimately ruined Yuzu’s life.
: “What did she say to get you here? Look, I don’t want any trouble. Just let me drink my tea.”
: “Come on Alex, attack. Take him out. You’ve come this far.”
: It’s a doggy dog world. Chumps like this guy are a diamond dozen. It’s ‘We’re one AND the same’ you fucking… you know what? I have a reaction image for this.
: “If he still wants to kill me after, then I’ll take my chances with a tussle.”
: “What the fuck are you talking about?”
: “Look man, I don’t want to burst your bubble. But she lies ALL the time. Whatever she thinks you want to hear comes out of her mouth. She envies my power.”
: “We may all be one in the same, but I drew the proverbial long straw. She needs all the help she can get. Even if it’s from a skinny MC…”
: “I’m you, you’re me, she’s us as well. The division of our soul isn’t exactly natural… and she wants out. She wants to be the last one here. She can’t accept our little arrangement. I get it. But we’ve been this way for a LONG time, man.”
: “So, tell me. What lies did she tell you to get you here?”
: “…Essentia… is this true? Sammy? Vella? Was all that a lie?”
: “It is often necessary to lie to yourself to get a tough job done. You’ve done it. We’ve all done it. I said what I needed to say to get you here.”
: So wait, is this just Bravely Default now?
: “…Alex… won’t you… help me… destroy him? Come on, take him out. You’ve come so far. End this division. End this strife. Without him, there will be no conflict.”
: So, this is where the game’s lazy programming kicks in.
: We get to fight a Joy Mutant straight out of LISA, plus two horse statues. Now, this is SUPPOSED to be a scripted boss fight - but I had no fucking idea going in.
: I figured it might dodge Alex’s LP Toss, so I had Plagiarism use hers even though she went before him.
: So yeah, this breaks the script. The game basically softlocks here - you can either wait an eternity for the boss to kill everyone, or you can reset. Unfortunately, I didn’t save during this route because I didn’t expect a fucking softlock. That’s what, four of them now? No wait, five. FIVE FUCKING SOFTLOCKS.
: Let’s talk about how this fight is supposed to go. Notice that there’s two glass pillars. We have exactly two turns to destroy both of these pillars, or the game becomes unwinnable. They go down in one hit from anything.
: The Joy Mutant spends its first turn charging, and its second turn to do this.
: The game then gives us a standard game over screen, which I don’t think I had ever seen before. It’ll ask you to continue, and you want to hit yes.
: Welcome to what I’m pretty sure is the inside of Two Brothers. Let’s meet a blatant author self-insert.
: “Not a lot of people do. But, I’m going to offer you some advice. I’ve lost everything. Trust me, I really have.”
: I don’t know much about Two Brothers, only that it had a Kickstarter. From what I’ve heard, the game had some massive issues - including that it was an unstable piece of shit. I wouldn’t be surprised if somehow they also screwed over their KS backers somehow.
: Enough with the goddamn self-pity! I don’t pity you one fucking bit! Your game sucks - both of them suck!
: This time, you’ll notice that there’s something different about this room. See those levers? Those were blocked off by horse statues before.
: “That’s the only thing keeping this division permanent!”
: “DO NOT UNPLUG US. WE WILL BE WHOLE AGAIN. DON’T DO IT! DON’T UNPLUG!!”
: Really? FUCK YOU, AND FUCK YOUR SHITTY GAME!
: “WITHOUT THIS EVERYTHING GOES BACK TO THE WAY IT WAS!!”
: “I don’t know what’s going to happen if we do this… but this is what my heart’s telling me to do.”
: “IF YOU DO THIS ONLY ONE OF US WILL BE HERE!”
: “I’m with you, and it’s all up to you now. Sorry again for dragging you into this. I shouldn’t have been so stupid.”
: “Everything she said really got to me. I was so worried about hurting my friends. I didn’t realize the difference between being flawed and being evil… anyway, it doesn’t matter now.”
: What the shit? This game got released in Japan? Moreover, someone edited this script? Did he quit halfway through or something? Maybe did all his editing while drunk from being forced to edit YIIK… actually, that makes sense.
: You’d think that Brian Allanson would have figured out he can’t code for shit after the first time he fucked a game up. That final boss was such a bad design choice: your first instinct is going to be to use an AOE attack due to there being three enemies, only the main AOE you have is glitched and will softlock the fight. This ending took me two full re-records to finally get.
: This game also apparently had two different testers. I don’t think a thousand testers could fix Brian’s spaghetti code.
: And I’m done. Goodbye, everyone. I’ll see you after several months of intense therapy to remove all memories of this from my brain and - what the fuck do you mean there’s still another ending? Fuck! Next time, we’ll do Ending B.
