I want the download to preserve this art of history because flash is dying


Great game, just like this guy's other ones!

from what I can tell there's 4 total ways to end the game.

1- be rude to the bot, it stops talking and you die

2- talk and have fun with the bot, you die

3- figure out what's going on, you choose to stay and you die

4- figure out what's going on, and you choose to leave, but your fate is uncertain.

I really recommend asking the bot different things even after you finish the game once, it has some really interesting answers!

i think that if you decide to leave, people find you but you are already dead, as shown by a tombstone in one of this dude's other games

This Was Such An Amazing Game! 

I Wish I Could Have Brought Mr Robot With Me Though :(

I can't figure it out but its a very good game :D

This game has a deep meaning, it is a really good game, and both ways there, is no chance of survival. This is a really good game, i played twice for both endings.

A meaning of loneliness.

amazing. so simple but so masterful

Interesting stuff, nicely done!
