Stuck trying to get ending D. Also- eponymusing.

Damn! Sounds intriguing, but won't load for me in either FF or IE (seems to hang at chat.kongregate.com). Just a me thing?

Cute game! I have all but "C"; what would Cthulhu do? Somebody stop me before I cheat.

The helicopter hates me and never wants to pick up the squirming sprog. Bah.

Pick up the sharks instead.

This is like the short story form of a longer RPG. Or maybe it just is a short story. Lol games!

hmm. I have "C" ... but, maybe in a non-standard way? apparently, suicide is an option?

this is great, but I can't get sea either, even after reading taz's clue.

Hah, I found "C" the same way as taz did. But I wonder if you can get there by just accepting your fate instead of hastening it.

Yes, just wait and C happens.

What I don't understand is why the man wakes up bleeding, or with a metallic taste in his mouth, or hearing the helicopter flying away. Is it that the waking environment is influencing his dream, or is it that his dream is more tied-in to reality than it would appear? Or is it only a literary technique fashioned to add depth to the story but with no real literal or symbolic meaning?

tl;dr.

I wanted there to be an ending where you just continue to hang out under the ocean without doing anything. Oh well.

Hm. I tried picking up the sharks, but the helicopter...oohhhhhh. Thanks, grahamwell!

Wow. Awesome game, I love these types of creations that don't serve up the expected.

Could this really be called a game? Maybe someone needs to come up with a new word. I vote for 'gam' (but I'm very unimaginative).
