Today, I hit credits on Hypnospace Outlaw and it was great but it felt like I skipped a major portion. I did none of the research, didn't even have the research tool unlocked and reached the end. After the 20 year time skip and after reading a little bit on the team, I tried to use the search function and searched for "Dylan" which lead to the download page for the "1.0" version of Outlaw.
What was really weird, however, is that this basically broke the flow of the ending completely. I was completely confused as to what happened. After watching the Vinesauce stream once I finished, I realized I missed so much of the game in such a major way. Don't get me wrong, I thought that Dylan was behind what occurred but without any of the context around the studies and hidden information, I was really lost.
I don't know if this was intended, but I think it'd be kinda nice if there was some way to unlock that only AFTER you've done the research. Its especially weird considering how it feels like the game is supposed to be uploaded once the jig is up on Dylan.
Love the game regardless and damn, that ending is a gut punch. Looking forward to the updates!
