Hi Vincent, great, you made it to the end! I'm glad you enjoyed it. Thank you very much. Please consider giving your votes on the game page.

Regarding the Easter eggs, the Info button will tell you how many you have found so far, so you can keep track during the game and find out which actions increase the total.

And as for alternative endings,
Spoiler: ShowHide
you can find these by deliberately doing something wrong at points in the game where the screen flashes red.


Thanks paolo for the suggestion about the alternative endings, I have submitted my vote into the game page.

For those of you who have played the game, a mini quiz for you to puzzle over. Put those thinking caps on...

1. An easy one to start with: What are the real-life games referred to by the games on Joe's computer?
2. What does the "added gore" in one of the games refer to?
3. Why is the office building called Lexington House?

EDIT: No answers posted, so here they are:

1.
Spoiler: ShowHide
"Harry Wales" refers to "Larry Vales", and also to Prince Harry. "Jen Borden IX Redux" is a spoof sequel imitating the long-running series of "Ben Jordan" games, of course. "Kelly Tootalot" refers to "Nelly Cootalot", "President Weevil" to "Resident Evil", and "San Marino" to "Gran Turismo", as well as the tiny European country. "Third Life" refers to "Second Life". "Trance-Atlantic" refers to "Trance-Pacific".

2.
Spoiler: ShowHide
"Jen Borden IX Redux" has "added gore courtesy of her sister, Lizzie". Lizzie Borden was a real-life notorious axe-murderer.

3.
Spoiler: ShowHide
Apart from Insurance International, the company names are based on dictionaries, or lexicons.
