There is another reason which lead me to think this story is not complete yet.
Indeed, when the heroes fight against the mage who controls this artificial world, he summons the templates of the heroes to fight against the heroes.
And then, he is surprised that the template of Atreyan is missing and starts pondering something.
At this point, I came to the conclusion that the mage couldn't summon the template of Atreyan because the template was already here.
Indeed, this scripted event lead me to think that the Atreyan that I have been controlling was actually the template and that the real Atreyan was pulling the strings in the shadows using his template to divert the attention away from him.
This was the logical conclusion to this scripted event.
However, after these 2 scripted lines of dialogue, the missing template of Atreyan is never ever mentionned again, the revelation that I guessed was coming never came...
Then why did you script this event to show that the mage is surprised that the template of Atreyan is missing and seems to realize something if not to hint that the mage realized he couldn't summon the template because the template was under our control?
Moreover, this would also explain why Atreyan is the only of the 4 heroes who has no memories of the real world.
Because he never was in the real world, he is a template created in the artificial world so his existence started in the artificial world, he can't remember the real world because he was never there to start with.
The fact that Atreyan has no memories of the real world whereas the 3 heroines remember their past life, the scripted event showing that the template of Atreyan is missing whereas the templates of the 3 heroines are still under the control of the mage, really, you made everything to lead to the logical conclusion that the Atreyan we control is the missing template and the real Atreyan is pulling the strings in the shadows since there has to be someone who has taken the template without the mage knowing it and the only person who could have done it is the only missing real hero, the real Atreyan, if we control the template, and there has to be a motive why Atreyan has stolen his template from the mage, the only logical reason being to divert the attention on the template so the real Atreyan is free to do whatever he wants hidden in the shadows.
The the next logical question is: Why the real Atreyan stays hidden? What is he doing in the shadows?
Is he on our side? Is he helping us in the shadows? These creepy visions that I have been seeing and this voice that I have been hearing in my head, is he him who remotely directs me? Is he directing me to defeat this artificial world?
But then, if he was on our side, then there would be no more need to stay hidden once the mage is dead, there is no one left to watch over this world so why does he keep hidding?
There is only one logical conclusion to explain why the real Atreyan stays hidden when there is no more threat: He is not on our side.
And so, after I defeated Slimey, I was holding my breath, I was expecting the real Atreyan to finally come out of the shadows and a dialogue between the real Atreyan and the party where he reveals that the Atreyan is in the party is a fake, the missing template that he has been manipulating to do the dirty work, a tool to get rid ot the security and seize control of this world.
Indeed, the real Atreyan doesn't want to escape this world and return to the boring world where he endlessly fights unoriginal evil and saves helpless princesses, he'd rather stay here, in this malleable world full of possibilities, where he could make whatever he wanted once he was on full control, he could be the omnipotent god of this world and make this world however he wants it to be, set his own rules, and create his ideal world.
I expected the story concluding with an epic confrontation between the real Atreyan and the party, I expected the ultimate boss of the game to be the real hero tired of being a hero and now being selfish.
But that didn't happen, even though you prepared the game to lead to this outcome, you didn't make it...
Why? Why hint to this if not making it?
You still can make it and that would be awesome!
I mean, you made Atreyan to be the only of the 4 heroes to have no memories of the real world, you scripted an event to show that the mage is surprised that the template of Atreyan is missing, you basically prepared the game to lead to this outcome so just make it already! ;-p
