I've actually had a bit of breakthrough with the game. I think I'd got bogged down before, but now I can see.
So you finally finished it?
Finished, delivered, everything. I'd been trying to give the player too much choice. So I just went back and stripped loads out. And now they've only got the illusion of free will, but really, I decide the ending.
And is it a happy ending?
I think so.

There is no single narrative or version. There are five different endings, each with multiple pathways to them. See more »
The overall idea behind an interactive film is great and it was a good attempt. However, the film kept taking you back to the same options over and over again until you chose the one you hadn't seen yet. So, for me it was dessesperating and I felt like it didn't actually give me much of a choice, if I dint chose what I was "supposed" to, then the film would keep looping. Maybe that's the point but I'm just not a fan, I had bigger hopes for an interactive film.
