STORY
You wake up with an aching head and the world out of focus. In front of you is a man accusing you of being “fake”.
He looks exactly like you, down to the last scar and pimple, has the same memories, the same voice and the same personality.
But who is lying and who is telling the truth? Who is fake and who is real?

With over nine different possibilities, you can either end up as the tragic hero, the sly villain, or an innocent victim.
Will you keep your cool or pick a fight? Play through all the endings and take a peek at the truth of your demise.

Whatever action you take, ultimately, you must answer the question: “Who is Mike?”

Congrats in finishing the game! <3 I downloaded and played it now!

1. Did you enjoy the story and characters?
Yeah, it's really interesting. I liked how it keeps the whole phenomenon shrouded in mystery.

2. How was the pacing of the story?
I think it's good. I was never bored or anything at all! :D

3. Which ending did you like the most?
I don't know really ;A; I... have only gotten "The Innocent," "The Sly," "The Fool," and "The Fallen." Out of those four, I liked "The Innocent" the most, but I still want to see the other endings! The whole thing's a mystery to me still! D: WHO IS THE REAL MIKE DAMMIT ASDFGHJKL
4. Did the story flow naturally to the ending?
Yep! The build-up to the endings are natural--not too slow nor is it too fast.

5. Any general comments?
I really, really liked the art and the music! They all fit the theme of the story and sets the mood really well! <3
PLEASE TELL ME HOW TO GET THE OTHER ENDINGS

Oooh!! This looks interesting! Haven't played any mystery VN in a while, so I'll give this a try. I'll tell you more once I'm finished playing.
Good job overall!

Pst! *Opens large trenchcoat* Hey Grizely! *looks suspiciously around* want a.... walkthrough?
*gasp* Yes, I want one ;w; Thank you.
And because I followed the walkthrough, I got all of the endings now!

I liked ending one the most, since... it's the happiest ending of them all. It makes me sad seeing that those monsters turn human once they're dying. D: I can't bring myself to really, really hate them at all ;w; I dunno, maybe I'm just weird haha.
Anyway, thanks again for the VN! :> I look forward to your other works! <3

Hey, I just wanted to say that your game got a review on VNs Now! Congratulations!

Don't worry; it's a pretty good review. :D
My first completed visual novel, which is at 1.3, it's final version(woo hoo!): Monster Uses CPU 2

You might ask yourself: If I could only save one paragraph of the work I'm writing, which one would I save?
Which one would I let go first?

Thanks GrizelyBear! I'm glad you muscled your way through all the endings. I've heard a similar sentiment from another player, the
"I kinda liked the bad guy I dunno... It's weird". I have a thing for affable villains myself!

What. VNs NOW?! Made a review?! Oh. Ohh..

Oh.

Well.....*clears throat* Thanks for bringing this to my attention, ol' chap Haze. I appreciate this. I'll go faint now if you don't mind! *faints conveniently in a bed".

Thanks Cat! You deserve praise as much as I, of course! You helped build this thing :)

Ah... Don't say that >_< I wouldn't want people to expect too much! This makes me nervous ._.

Even with the walkthrough I can't get endings seven and eight....
WHat am I denying? And what counts as the "last warning?"
I've tried again and again for like the past 35 minutes :/

When Sarah asks you her questions, you will have the option to "Deny" or to "Come Clean". Choose "Deny" until Sarah says "I'm going to ask you one last time. Who are you?" That's when you choose "Come clean."

Bonus Hint: If you click "Come Clean" anytime, you will skip the whole exchange and go straight to Ending 7.
