Hit false end 4, Revelation, and tried to "rebirth" to before my choice so I could stay on script, but it put me after that choice.  Talking to the guy again went the same way, and didn't even let me escape to the main menu while the dialog was continuing, so I had to force close.  I'm not willing to restart from the beginning, so I guess that's it.  Pretty disappointing, honestly.

You may or may not play this game again. However, I wanted to take the time to say "thank you" to you for your review and comment.

I have now patched and fixed the issues you've had.


I have updated the game, removed the autosave that happens when player reaches a false ending scene.

That way, the player won't have to replay the game all over again after making a wrong choice. And can continue from before the last choice was made.

And I have also added an 'experimental-but mostly working' skip/game speed up option that the player can activate by pressing 'Q' or 'pageup' key. To skip through the scenes that you have already seen.


Anyways, thanks to you and your comment, the game is slightly better. And player would have a better experience playing through. So, thank you Alectric

I have had to remove your game from the Interactive Fiction Jam due to evidence that it wasn't made within the 7 days before the jam or during the jam.
