It uses minimalist graphics (to hide the fact that I can't draw to save my life, well, maybe to save my life, but regardless, I draw poorly) and classical music to tell a story, that hopefully can be pieced together by getting all four endings.
There are about two spelling errors, which I will fix once I get back to my normal computer. This is a continuing project that I'll be relying partially on your feedback for further development.

Unfortunately it seems as though I forgot to add another digit in the text speed part. I'll get to that by the next release.
I loved the story, but I'm still asking myself
Actually, I got all of them very quickly (dunno the exact time) without skipping at all. The first one I got was the intellectual ending. For the rest, I didn't start over, but loaded from the menus.Leemaster wrote:To somewhat answer your question,Working on the bigger story behind it currently, so I'll hopefully answer that soon. But for a basic explanation that might be evident depending on which of the 3 endings you got, 'H' says something that might shed a little light on why Jack keeps dreaming. In fact, it doesn't necessarily have to even be just him who dreams. And...I've said too much.By the way, how long did it take for you all to get each ending? I'm rather curious as to which parts I've subconsciously focused on and which parts I've neglected.
It took me about the standard half to full hour to get 2+ endings. The structure is confusing though. Yes, I know you are meant to cycle through some parts a second time but I often found myself tempted to hit 'skip' then scratching my head why it didn't work.

Now you've got me curious. Giving this one a download.
Judging on how much time I have to work with (midterms for three weeks, research papers, aaah, someone hit me over the head with a plastic bottle.) the butterfly will become a pretty recurring symbol.
On a slightly different note, how are the graphics and sounds? I know that I've skimped heavily on those portions, as I can draw relatively realistic scenes with great difficulty (And mess the whole thing up once I try to color it) and I am more or less tone deaf and have no clue how best to synchronize the music with the scene.
So eventually, if someone is inspired to volunteer some time and pretty much minimal effort (hey, I wouldn't expect any more from you especially since you're doing this for free) to help out in the A/V area, I would welcome you to do so. Of course, this would require quite a bit of dedication, as I am still only halfway there in terms of actual storyline.
