Quote
"It has to be the ending where you lose the Epoch and everyone is unable to see one another, ever again," he told me via email. "The fact that the game is coming to an end, and the fact that the characters are saying their goodbyes are in sync, and Iím sure those who have played the game can share the sadness and memories." An interesting answer, but that's not all.

"I personally like the face-off between Frog and the Fiendlord (Magus), which is a portion of the game I created," he continued. "It was depicted solely with sound effects throughout the credits, and itís unclear as to who ultimately won the battle. Itís very minimal, but I feel like it turned into an impactful ending."

That's an interesting detail.

I suppose in a way it does give a sense of closure. Wouldn't surprise me.

You know... I actually kind of like having to sacrifice the Epoch to get through to Lavos, in a way. It's like, one more thing that had to line up and make defeating Lavos possible.

But then, this picture of our heroes facing him as Armageddon commences, well...

Maybe that's better.
