  • This is by far my most involved animation yet, I’m so happy to see everyone enjoying. Big thanks to Trent for making it with me and keeping me company over discord over long hours of animating. I’m realizing now that people might see this before the first two, so here’s the whole series in one convenient playlist -

    • Is the first scene with the old man a reference to Seles in The Legend of the Dragoon? It seems like such a direct reference to the scene with Elder Plos sitting in the ash, outside of a ruined house.

No not very corrupt, no 2:56 - Redux of his first lines, aw

  • Okay so judging from how these videos when in the first two videos when he killed everyone the worst that happened is that he felt pretty bad about it but the kingdom was safe Marshall wasn't let loose to let all the criminals free in bus the king would still be alive The Village would still be alive and everyone except for all the people he murdered in discriminately what all still be alive living happily however by Saving Marshall and letting him get found this leads to the entire Kingdom being left in disarray this game thus follows the opposite logic of undertale where undertales logic was to be friendly to everyone and give everyone a chance before beating the shit out of them this game is logic is that no one can be trusted to your better off killing everyone
