I want to like this game, but what I am seeing far isn't really filling me confidence. I dislike Luke, Helen and Tanya. Tom's the only one who's somewhat decent.

There doesn't seem to be any reason why Tanya likes, err I mean scarily obsessive about Luke, who she only met a few day ago. Then there's Helen and Luke who's been dating for 10 years, but still haven't gotten anywhere past the friends with benefits stage.

Yes, the relationships are all a bit strange! I spent my first playthrough just trying to make Luke break up with Helen for good - and despite their relationship completely tanking he still seemed unwilling to actually call it quits.

I find the characters a little hard to relate to, but there are so many choices to make and so many endings that it's fun playing around with their lives and just seeing what happens. There are all kinds of variations in the way each scene can play out, it's great for experimenting with.

Just don't get emotionally invested, or it might be upsetting when they all go insane and kill each other. :)

(In case it's not clear, I didn't write this, I'm still playing it myself!)

Since I wrote it I want to explain :)
Some girls (Helen) are really in blind love with someone (I know this happened for real to me) and are unable to let them go no matter how bad he treats them. So this explain why she can't find the courage to break with him despite all the happenings. In the beginning, it is explained also that in last 50 years only 1 couple out of 10 gets married, so this has also relationship with the (crap) world that is in 2099.
Also (spoiler):
Helen is secretly dating Tom and feel guilty for this

Tanya is so obsessive with Luke probably for some reasons like (spoilers):
She's basically awakened 100 years after, she's shocked and Luke in a way or the other is the first human being with whom she has a contact. Later in game she ask if she can sleep, but not for sexual reason but because she just wants to stand nearby a human being.

Ok hope this makes things a bit clearer about the characters relationships.

I actually really liked this game :D! I liked all the characters,in fact. I found the videos that were posted really amusing and,now that I actually played the game,I don't find it disappointing at all xD! After replaying the game and choosing other options,I got 3 endings,just in the demo :P.

It's well designed at least and the little changes that the story makes if you choose different reactions to certain events makes it interesting to play. For me,at least! And I love Tom *___*

I really like this game. But, I'm having trouble getting all the endings. I've only gotten a couple so far.

I'm hoping a walkthrough will turn up eventually (nudge, nudge, jack!). I've gotten most of the endings but not all, it'd be nice to have a simple guide to catching the few I've missed!

Well here is the full list of endings, let me know which ones you're missing mostly. I've been asked the same thing in my forums as well so I'll put up a thread there with some tips for the most difficult ones (some are really easy to get).

The endings:
"Luke never meets Tanya"
"Luke tries to shoot Tanya"
"Jealous Tanya kills Helen"
"Tanya kills Luke"
"Luke becomes a robot"
"Tanya kidnaps Luke"
"Tanya is arrested by police"
"Tanya had a soul too"
"You escape to Mars"
"Luke ends his life in jail"
"Luke and Tina prisoners"
"Luke is killed by Julia"
"Tanya is a serial killer"
"Tanya loves Luke"
"Bionic... hearts"
"Richard's menace"
"Julia the fortune-teller"
"Luke marries Tanya"
"Luke the great scientist"
"Luke's sacrifice"
"A new dawn"
"Mark & Julia"
"Not an illusion"
"Happy Ending"

I'm missing

tanya kidnaps luke
Luke ends his life in jail
Bionic... hearts
Luke marries Tanya


It's not that most endings are difficult to get, it's just that after a while you lose track of all the things you have and haven't tried! So a full guide of which choices to make is useful to pick up the stragglers.

There you go:
http://www.winterwolves.net/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=817

with the clues you should be able to see all the endings. Some endings have 2 variations though with small differences (but still present, if you want really to see 100% of the game!) 8)

Sorry, I fixed a bug in a very early version of the game that prevented that ending, probably you bought it before I put the new version online. You just need to redownload the game from this page:
http://www.winterwolves.net/customer/index.php
entering the email you used to order.

I'm sorry about the problem! :oops:
