For the sake of showing off the game's art, I feel like you should show new inhabitants that you battle, and the cut-in art for character abilities that haven't come up yet when they trigger. On the other hand, this is as free as the main game, so you could make the argument that the readers ought to try their own runs to see everything.

That's a fair point, I'll definitely show off new inhabitants and cut-in art. The main thing was the daily gameplay loop of assigning a task to everyone and then seeing and recording the result of those tasks wasn't that interesting to LP.

Edit - update on previous page.

Hmmm... If Mishima kills the girl with the boat when we first meet her, does that last scene with Jin play out differently, or do we just skip it entirely?

  • Day 26...



"Waugh, you again! Again and again...”

“Miss Touko! You're all right?”

"...There's a whole bunch of berries on this side of the island. So what do you want?”

"You required parts to fix your boat, yes?”

"...Yeah.”




"I-If you're giving it, I'm taking it, but...!”

"Please make use of it for repairs.”

"...Here. Take this.”



Music stops.



  • Touko needs 500 material to repair the boat.

“"Oh! Is that true?!”

"Just looking it over... I shouldn't need any more materials...”

"What I need... is an expert who can fix it...”

"Say again...?”



"I know the sea and boats because of my parents... But I can't possibly do any repairs...”

"...I'm sorry. You gave me all this... But I'm too stupid to make use of it...”

"Then... please, come with me. Per our kidnapper's promise, she should come get us as long as we survive.”

"You're trusting in a kidnapper...?”

"But... I guess we're in the same predicament. I can't hope for a miracle from a boat I can't fix...”

"Miss Touko...”

Music stops.



"Understood. I'll wait for you...”

  • Day 27. No scripted events, but Gonbee finds another box.







“Good, good... Guess I'll take it. Mwahaha...”










"Oh, Keiji. In your hand there...”



I began drinking with Keiji.

"Hrm...! This is an outrageously strong drink!”

"You aren't a wild drunk, are you, Mishima?”

I'm reputable as a mere grinning drunk.”

"Good for you.”

"What kind of drunk are you, Keiji?”



"Can you not get drunk?”

"Hmm... Maybe.”



"...The darkness, you mean?”

"...!”

"Wahaha... You're really something, Mishima.”



"Oh my. So that was in your past?”

"Back when I was a complete newbie... My first boss got pretty fond of me.”

"Police need to do their drinking in secret to avoid any scandals, but...”

"My boss was a beer-lover and got me pretty drunk, going all "it's a day off, it's fine"..."

"How dangerous.”

"When I stumbled into the station the next day with a hangover, the boss was pretty cold to me.”

"Why is that?”




"I suppose you're a seducing drunk, then.”

"Guess that'd explain why I'm trying to coax things out of you right now, Mishima.”

"Indeed. I'm happy to hear more about you too, Keiji.”



I'm afraid the investigation is far from over.”

"...Boy, this is tough." You're doing a lot more than just grinning, Mishima.”





  • Day 28.






  • Temping as it may be to leave Safalin to her own devices, if we don't rescue her, we'll miss the chance to buy a unique item.



  • Gonbee gets rid of it with one strike.





“Whew... That was a close one.”

“Aaaah, thank you so muuuch!!”

“H-However should I thank you?! I'll do absolutely anything I can...”

“Open the shop as usual, then...?”

“Eh...? Aah... understood...”




  • The fuel is one of the requirements for a specific ending and can only be bought today (Day 28). Only one fuel is needed, although the game will let you buy more than one if you have enough money.



  • I buy the fuel and more food.





"Oh my, you look uneasy.”

"It's not useful to worry, but... I catch myself thinking about it.”

"Do you like school, Miss Sara?”

"Yes... I have friends there, too, though not a lot.”

"A wonderful thing. What clubs are you in?”



"I did kendo up through middle school, but...”

"I was in for a surprise when I got to high school. They didn't have a kendo club...!”

"My word! You didn't know that beforehand, I take it.”

"I did read up on the school, of course. But I was kind of... focused on the uniforms...”

"The uniforms?”

"It's just... you know...”



"My, Miss Sara. I had the impression you would choose a school that suited your future plans...”

O-Of course I wasn't NOT considering those...”

"But... I mean... it's the uniform I'd be wearing for three years and all...”

So you wouldn't want it to not be cute.”

"Sniff... that's so unlike me, isn't it...?”

"I can appreciate that way of thinking, myself.”

"R-Really?”

"Choose what you like. It seems simple... but can be shockingly difficult.”

"Life is nothing but choice after choice. Miss Sara, I'm certain you're a person who can make choices she won't regret.”









  • Day 29.



"Ahh, Jin.”

"You're getting close to escaping, right? Hope you make it back okay.”

"Jin, did you find the person you were looking for?”

"...Nah. Never ended up finding her.”

"I see...”

"...Jin. Might you ask miss Miley if you can return with us?”

"...”

"You... still mean to search, I take it.”

“Yeah. Because... I still remember her. Her face... and her name...”

Music stops.



"Huh?! Miss Touko...?!”

"You know her?!”

“Indeed...! Please, come with me!”



"Touko!!”

“Hyeeeeek! Jin!!”

"What are you doing out here...?!”

"I'm sorry!! I'm sorry!!”

"I'm glad... you're okay...”

"Huh...?”



"Jin kept on looking for you.”

"Y... You aren't mad...?”



"I-I mean... I was the one who wanted that egg, and acted on my own... who ignored what you said...”

"Dummy... That's not...”

"...I'm sorry...”

"Alright, let bygones be bygones. More importantly, what are you doing over here?”

"It's because I found a boat... And I figured, "if Jin were here, he'd fix it.”



"Is that how it went? Good job staying alive... You're stronger than I thought.”




"Yeah, Jin's got no sense of direction.”

"I'm happy as well! What do you plan to do now?”

"I'll try and fix this boat... I'd like to go with you, but I can't trust Miley.”

"Oh, but wait! We don't have fuel, Jin!”

Urk... Well, that's not good. Gonna have to do something about that...”

Music stops.




"Please, use this.”

"What?! It's fuel...!! You're sure?!”

"Hahaha... Generous, am I not?!”

"I'm in your debt as always... I really don't have words... Ahh... I couldn't owe it to you any more. Truly, thank you...”

"Touko, you say thanks too.”

"Ehhh...?”

"Just kidding... Thanks.”



"Let us both survive and escape...!”



  • There's another inhabitant battle on Day 30.

  • Day 31





"Miss Miley...!! Today is the day you promised!”

"Ahaha. Nobody likes a clingy man, you know?”

"We survived, just like you told us to...! Now let us go!!”

"Heehee, but it seems you could go a little longer. Shall I extend it by 10 days or so?”



"What meaning does this island thing have anyhow? Even this friendly policeman's got no clue...”



"You'd just forget it anyhow.”

"Say what?!”

"Oh, fine. If you want to return, then I'll take you back to where you were, as promised.”

“You'll really take us home...!!”

Music stops.







  • Do we escape, or do we stay on the island? If we choose to stay, we'll be offered the option to leave again on Day 34, and if we still choose to stay, we'll be forced to leave on Day 40. The day that we choose (or are forced) to leave will determine which of three possible endings we'll get.

"See if I care... There's not a single thing to be gained from staying on this island...”

"Even so, Kanna and everyone... will escape their own way...!!”

"Ahaha. Then go ahead and struggle for me.”

“...Until we meet again.”





  • ”Island Life stops playing after refusing to leave with Miley.



  • After Day 31, there's a battle everyday. If anyone except Mishima is killed prior to Day 31, you have to fight their hallucination instead of an inhabitant. Safalin doesn't appear after Day 28, but characters can still find money when foraging.



  • Q-taro and Keiji get rid of the inhabitant.





  • Fondness events can still trigger though.

"Oh? Is something troubling you, Joe?”

"Whoa! Professor Mishima! Well, it's nothing major, but...”

"Isn't the sunlight real strong here? It's so hot...”

"It's rather tropical, isn't it?”



"...That's certainly a drastic decision.”

"You think so?”

"At a glance, Joe, I felt you paid much care to your hair and fashion, you see.”

"Ahh... Well, at first, I got this hairstyle 'cause my classmates thought it was funny.”

"They were all "this'll make you more attractive, and "make use of how that hair curls”... Just playing games on a guy's head, man.”

"They got so into it, even people from the class next to ours brought in magazines.”

"In the end, an older girl I'd never met who wanted to be a beautician showed up...”




"But it was a hit with my best bud and Ryoko, so hey, it's all good!”

"Hmm. So as a result, you became popular in class?”




"Ah, but you don't know that. Perhaps one of them was being serious...”

"Nope, not a chance! I mean, I'm the class clown!”

"Perhaps so...”

"At any rate, it would surely surprise them all if you came back with a crew-cut.”

"Hmph... We simply refused before she could trick us. A decisive judgement... Mwahaha...”

I'm still fully convinced we're seeing the AI simulations that led to the %s in the main game so none of the endings are likely to be happy ones, this just seemed like the closest to that.

“Don't tell me... Was the author of this diary our ally?”

As I turn the pages, I become convinced. So many of these entries about life together on the island match my own memories.

There's three variants on the trust Miley ending, the one we saw where everyone survives, one where there's at least one casualty and one where Mishima is the only survivor. To be honest, I wasn't planning on showing them off, but I'll see if I can find a (non-commentary) video and add it in.

There isn't that much difference between the variations. If at least one person didn't make it, but there's more than one survivor Mishima wakes up in the city and starts thinking about going home, having a shower, getting some tea and rest. Mishima doesn't realise that he's being watched in this ending, and "Sara" vows to keep repeating the simulation until she's satisfied, but as with the boat ending, it's not revealed that "Sara" is the one running the simulation. If Mishima is the only survivor, after he wakes up in the city, he suddenly remembers that there were others on the island with him and falls into despair not understanding why he's forgotten those he was on the island with, or why he suddenly remembered them. No appearance or lines from "Sara" in this ending.

Investigate middle left coffin.

Some sort of coffin. Inside is a boy wearing a school uniform.


“Meow... Respond if you're alive, woof...”

“Gin...”

Investigate top left coffin.

Some sort of coffin. Inside is a man with blue hair.


“...He's not breathing.”

Investigate top right coffin.

Some sort of coffin. Inside is a woman wearing a large hat.


“It's like a graveyard... How uncanny...”

Investigate middle right coffin.

Some sort of coffin. Inside is a girl wearing a hood.


“I think I've seen this hood...”

Investigate Sou's coffin again.



(Is there anything of interest...?)

I slowly slid open the lid.

(Are there any places that look suspect...?!)







“GaaahhhHHH?!”

“Big Sis Sara!! What happened, woof?!”

“Get away...! That person... moved!!”

The coffins start shaking, then disappear into the darkness.

Music stops.



“...!!”





“Y... Ya mean you weren't a corpse?!”

“As you can see, I'm super-duper. So, did you enjoy it?”

“Who the hell's gonna enjoy that?! Jes' who or what are you?!”




“Floor Master, you say...?”

“Yep! I waited for 5 hours in that coffin! I t's so cruel of you guys to keep me in suspense!”

“Now now, gather closer to me!”



“As I thought you're...!!”

“There's no time. I need to introduce you…”

Music stops.




“Nwah?! Whoa nelly...!!”







“Partner...?”

“Ahem! That should be "master", you know? You guys are the supports, after all.”

“H-Hold on! Supports? Aren't these...?!”





(She knows my name...!)

“Naturally, they're dolls... So they got the necessary info input in advance.”




“This time, we'll be having you make pairs with the Dummies to take on a game!”

“Pairs, you say...?”

Music stops.

“Now, Red Thread of Fate... Activate!”






“The people connected by the Red Thread of Fate are pairs for this game!”



“A... Aah...”



“S-Sure... 'Zat the right mood to be in...?”



“Middle-schooler or so? Must be rough.”



“...Hmph. Murderer...? It hurts to hear it said to my face... Quit it.”



“I'm the one who's worried, woof!!”




“I'd like to request a trade!”



How nice! Everyone looks like they'll get along!”

Well, lastly... I'll introduce myself too.”

Music stops.



“...!”

“Of course... Sou Hiyori is a name of the past to me now...”

“Seeing as Shin used it with such care. I'm not going to just claim that name now!”

“..........”



(So he took the alias of "Sou Hiyori" from this guy...)




“H... How can you say that?!”

“Ahaha, don't get so mad. You all can't understand my affection.”

(This person... He's a little like Sou... But something is distinctly different...!!)

“Anyway, it'll be inconvenient without a nickname.”

“Hey, Miss Sara. You act as a representative and give me a new name!”



  • Midori is the default, but Sou has a few reactions if we try to name him after another character.




Alice Yabusame.

“Alice Yabusame...? I do really hate him, personally, but I'm on the job here. Just pick another name.”

“Ahaha, Gashu? I could never grow such a stupendous crabstache. Pick another name.”

  • Gashu Satou has the has the same response.

Gin.

“I'm not Gin, meow! Woof woof! ...Just kidding. Pick another name.”

Gin Ibushi.

“Gin Ibushi...? I'm a grown-up, so I can't go imitating a cat. You should pick another name.”

Hiyori.

“Hiyori won't do either. Doesn't it make me seem like I'm still clingy about my old name?”

Ibushi.

“Ibushi is Gin's surname. Think it over again, woof.”

Joe.

“...Joe was such a cheerful and kind boy... It's really a shame.”

Joe Tazuna.



  • The responses to Joe are the same regardless of whether Kanna or Shin survived.

Kai.

“Yes, I am Kai! ...Nope, I'm not. It'd be inexcusable for me to use that name.”

Kai Satou.

“Kai Satou...? I don't think I can cook very well. Pick another name.”

Kanna.

“Poor Kanna'd weep! I think a more worthless name would be better for someone like me.”

Kanna Kizuchi.

“Kanna Kizuchi...? Sorry, I don't have a bucket. Pick another name.”

Kazumi.



  • Not only will Sou allow Kazumi, Kazumi Mishima or Mishima, he'll also accept any of the Dummies names.

Keiji.

“Ahaha, you're making Mr. Policeman blush! ...Just kidding. Pick another name.”

Keiji Shinogi.

“Keiji Shinogi...? I'm not fond of sounding like a ladykiller. Pick another name.”

Kizuchi.



Laizer.

“Laizer... Wasn't there a doll named Rio Laizer? That's rude to Safalin, so quit it.”

Miley.

“Ahaha, Miley, huh? I think she's pretty, but her personality's scary. Pick another name.”

Nao.



Nao Egokoro.

“Nao Egokoro...? I like sculpting more than drawing. Pick another name.”

Q-taro.

“Ahaha, Q-taro is a name for gorillas only. I'd prefer a more spindly name.”

Q-taro Burgerberg.

“Q-taro Burgerberg... It's just too long. Pick another name.”

Ranger.

“Ranger... Wasn't there a doll named Rio Ranger? We're not the same model number, so quit it.”

Reko.

“Reko...? Only sisterly bongo players get that name. Pick another name.”

Reko Yabusame.

“Reko Yabusame...? Nah, I'm not a band girl. Pick another name.”

Rio Laizer / Ranger.

“There's already a doll named Rio Laizer… I'd be fine with Rio, though. Rethink it.”

Safalin.

“Safalin... She looks kind of scary, huh? Ahaha. Pick another name.”

Sara.

“You want to give me the same name as you...? How disgusting, Miss Sara.”

Sara Chidouin.

“If you'll remember, Sara Chidouin is you!”

Satou.



Shinogi.

“Shinogi is Keiji's surname. Naturally, I have to decline.”

Sou.

“I gave Sou to Shin. He's already Sou by now, you see.”

Sou Hiyori.

Meister.

I know a Komaeda when I see one.

They really went all out with the alternate names, drat. Which only makes it weirder that he accepts Mishima. Unless ... Another point for Mishima doll theory? (An incredibly subtle one if so.)
