Hmm. To be honest, there may be combinations even I don't know about, but Stexe mentioned one choice that is very useful. Apart from that, just some general guidance...
- There are certain cases where you don't need to exhaust the full list of options to advance to the next leg of the story. Try looking for opportunities to skip ahead sooner.
- There's no real nickel-and-dime-ing involved. You only need to click on a handful of options and most of them are big-ticket items (that is, in the billions).
- If you've EARNED money at any point (by going to the bathroom, talking with your nibling, etc), you can't access the secret endings at all and will need to rewind or start over.
I hope that helps a little. Good luck!
>I'm not even 15 yet.
And that, right there, is why I'm stepping in and asking you both to chill.
Plasma, I say this with all possible compassion as someone who used to work as a game moderator for children and teens: This isn't the place for you and I think you know it.
You have a good head on your shoulders and you're going to be a force to reckon with when you get to adulthood, that's very clear from your posts. I wish I had been as good of a writer when I was 14! But there are things you aren't considering and all of this is very out of proportion for a single mention of ICE in a text game.
I've been following your comments from the beginning -- I get notifications every time there's a new comment on my game's page -- and that's twice now you've brought up that you're a minor, as though that should excuse gaps in your knowledge. It might explain those gaps, but "explain" and "excuse" are two very different things. Your age doesn't mean others are required to go easier on you when they push back on your arguments.
This was a game written by and for adults. Most of the people you'll find discussing it online are also adults. I think on some level you're aware of this, or you wouldn't bring up your age like you do. While I don't want to discourage you from learning more about these issues, the other commenters here also aren't obligated to educate you. You need to find a more appropriate space with people your own age and adults who have the right training and experience to guide you. Maybe that's a classroom and teacher, or a cool librarian, or a forum or youtube channel geared toward students of history or ethics -- there are a lot of resources out there! But I guarantee they'll all have more meaningful takeaways for you than the comments on an itchio thread.
To Helmic: I'm not sure if you were aware of the other thread before this where Plasma mentioned they were a minor, but now that that fact's been established, I hope you'll heed this warning to disengage as well. All told, you were both good at keeping things fairly civil, but like I've told Plasma already, this isn't the right setting for this.
We good here?
