One of the endings can be unlocked by failing the vocab game (unconscionable, I know :P). The final ending is unlocked by playing through all three levels and following your friend's advice. Glad you enjoyed!!

Hi there! Thanks so much for your comment, and I'm really flattered that you want to share the game so much.
All translations are by submitted by volunteers, so it's understandable there are some mistakes. Please do reach out by email (litrouke at gmail) so we can talk more. I'd be happy to update the game with corrections :)
Holy moly, thank you so much for this incredibly thorough and kind review. I've been thinking about it non-stop at work since I read it. Comparing this game favorably to Kentucky Route Zero and SH... I'm really flattered. THANK YOU. (Incidentally, my very first playtester made the same remark about the T-rex plushie, but Mr. Protagonist has no time for our sentimental frivolities.) So glad you enjoyed the game, and your review single-handedly re-motivated me to work on another game set in the same universe.
(Also, I definitely recommend A Dark Room. It's very different from this, but it's another good IF-adjacent game that will keep your attention with short bursts of text/narrative!)
Hey! I made it using Twine, a free low-code game dev tool. If you look for Twine on reddit, you can find a link to the Twine Discord where expert coders help out new ones.
hey sorry to hear that. it's possible that a browser add-on is blocking the game from loading. i often have to whitelist specific game pages in my browser's adblocker for them to load properly. hope that helps!
Definitely not cheating! You can get the good and bad endings by playing through the game normally. For the "final" ending, check out the hint I posted to the previous commenter about turning off the phone in-game. Good luck!
Thank you! Glad you're enjoying it.
(HINT: You can turn off the phone when it starts to get glitchy. You might remember from previous playthroughs that there's a point late in the game where the vocab app resets itself... Keep an eye out for that moment.)
Thank you so much for this awesome, thorough review!! You touched on basically everything that I hoped players would appreciate, especially the increasingly sinister words -- not a lot of people comment on that!
I'll do my best to create some more good stuff ;)
To follow your friend's hint, try playing one more time. There will be an opportunity near the end of your final playthrough to prevent the app from restarting. No need to refresh the page. Good luck! :)
