Episode 5

The Wolf and the Lamb

Cover art from Episode 5

Final episode's cover shows a white butterfly glowing with a purple-blue gleam. White moths collected in previous episodes are the demons' souls in their disempowered form portrait in a sleeping face shown on the butterfly's back. The colorful aura refers to the parallel, imaginary world of Chris which is finally addressed and revealed in this episode.

Spoiler warning

The finale and the set of possible player choices in Episode 5 depend on decisions made in the previous episodes, which can be simplified to the alive-status of Barbara, Valerian and Gara.

The game ensures that there is always at least one of these three persons alive when reaching Episode 5. The most probable end situation is that Barbara is alive, but Valerian and Gara are dead. If Barbara and Valerian are both alive (Gara always dies then), the player has to choose one of them.

Situations and Decisions

Barbara is alive

A showdown between Barbara, Player and Wanderer happens inside the house. The player has to choose who to kill (and vice versa who to trust).

  • Killing the Wanderer: Chris does not find home into the world of the living (nor does he know that he's dreaming). Barbara becomes extremely dominant, living exactly that kind of suppression which she was suffering in earlier times herself. Both move to an isolated house. Chris loses his vitality and dies of exhaustion, his soul dissolves into the universe.
  • Killing Barbara: The Wanderer is in relief and guides Chris into the bedroom. Continue with Bedroom scene below.
  • Killing yourself: Chris' soul shapes into a butterfly. The Wanderer kills Barbara and takes Chris' butterfly into the bedroom where Chris' body (appearing as ghostly projection) is waiting. Continue with Good Ending below.

Valerian is alive

A showdown between Valerian and Player happens in the bedroom. In bed there is a ghostly projection of an enchained body (a projection of Chris' body in the living world). Valerian claims the body is the Wanderer and shall be killed (knowing that a return of Chris would mean the end of the demon's lifes).

  • Killing the body: Chris does not find home into the world of the living (nor does he know that he's dreaming). Valerian abducts Chris into the monastery claiming that this is a safe place forever. Falling back into a delirium of praying Valerian fully harbors his dogma of submission and joylessness. Chris cannot escape, finally tries also praying, but dies. His soul dissolves into the universe.
  • Killing Valerian: The Wanderer appears, praises Chris' decision, but challenges him to also 'take the final steps'. Continue with Bedroom scene below.
  • Killing yourself: Chris' soul shapes into a butterfly. The Wanderer kills Valerian and takes Chris' butterfly to his body. Continue with Good Ending below.

Gara is alive

Barbara and Valerian are dead. Gara can be found enchained to the walls for torturing in the basement of the house. Gara is nearly dead and advices Chris with last words not to care about this situation, but to find "his own way".

  • Unlocking Gara: Chris tries to free Gara, but Gara's dead body pulls Chris into a deep water hole in the ground. Chris is drowning, his soul dissolves into the universe.
  • Keeping Gara locked: Chris can move on to the upper part of the house. Continue with Bedroom scene below.

End branches (entered from a decision above)

Bedroom Scene

The bedroom is the room where the game started. The ritual circle of chalk that can be seen in the beginning of the game is drawn directly on the ground next to the bed where Chris' body is appearing as ghostly projection. The Wanderer, Chris and his body are present.

  • Killing the body: Chris cut the bridge to the living world. The wanderer, the house and everything disappears in gray fog. Chris is wandering through the fog, finally disappearing. His soul dissolves into the universe.
  • Killing the Wanderer: Chris killed the only guide back to life. He remains in the empty house which turns into more and more weird architecture. Finally Chris reaches the socket of the village founder from Episode 2. He climbs on the socket and turns into the missing stone statue. His soul dissolves into the universe.
  • Killing yourself: Chris' soul shapes into a butterfly. The Wanderer takes the butterfly to Chris body. Continue with Good Ending below.

Good Ending

Chris returns to his body and awakes. He finds himself bound to the bed, in a brighter reality of the bedroom. Sam appears in person next to the bed (no longer appearing as ghost). He welcomes Chris home, explaining that he performed an exorcism on behalf of his family. He will unfix Chris and bring him to his family.
