Thank you for playing!
I think you're the first one to realize the thing in the machine was asking for something. I believe you've understood more of the story than you think! :-)
Thanks, this game was really cool. I loved all the scifi and surreal elements about this, and it had a very interesting conclusion. I imagine that the war that was talked about had something to do with the thing in the machine, can't say exactly what through. Anyway thanks again for making an awesome game!
