Ive not seen any discussions for Herbert vs Happiness, and its probably my favorite quest so far.

So, discussion time. I shall start things off my mentioning the file names for the images appear to be in German, if you haven't noticed, and have something to do with the theme of what's going on.

<-mfw flash update
No. 32561 ID: ace2ca

Oh hell yes, it is back!!! And creepier than ever.

Also, art upgrade? Nice.
No. 32562 ID: 1854db

The squiggly lines are gone! What was causing it?
No. 32567 ID: 3fdb7f

The squiggly lines were caused by gimp (or at least by me not knowing how to correctly work with gimp.

I started to use illustrator when I had to do the flash and they were instantly gone. I'll try using this art-style for a while.

This is a really good time to make the switch, honestly. It exemplifies the change in character perspective.

So are we actually the doll or are we part of Isabel's mind now?
No. 34356 ID: 9dd0ec


It's going to take some time until that's fully revealed - until then you're free to speculate. I tried to plant some hints, but maybe that didn't work.
No. 34357 ID: 8c73c8

i am 100% sure we are the doll. we can simply commune with the black goo that was part of herbert. when isabel touched it it bonded with her. but since she isn't a robot it is not as good.
No. 34365 ID: 34930b

We are kinda a subconscious influence.
No. 34384 ID: 8a7e69

I like this theory best.
No. 34416 ID: 1854db

We are the First Monster. The prototype of Happiness. We are sane while he is not, because of the accident.

The doll is us. We can ALMOST move, but not quite. It's been shown by now that Happiness cannot die, but is not indestructable. We can chop him up.

Hmm. Happiness might be a robot. WE might be a robot.

My PC crashed today and while I was able to save the most important files, I lost the drawing program I was using. I guess unti I can get it back from somewhere, I guess I'll have to change the drawing style again, although I managed lessen the squiggly line effect somehow.

I hope you don't mind.
No. 34703 ID: 1854db

Looks fine. The main difference seems to be the lines are thicker but that's alright.
No. 34767 ID: 9dfe6a

What were you using, Happibert? I or someone else might be able to help you get it back provided you aren't too up and against pirating.
No. 34784 ID: 9dd0ec

I was using Adobe Illustrator. I don't think it will be too hard to "legally purchase" it again. Thanks for the offer though.
No. 34891 ID: c66903

Ahh man. Let me just say, I love the recent "rat chase" sequence. I can't put my finger on the particular thing, but somehow the "indirect" control we have other Isabel, guiding her away from wtf-face without her really being aware of the danger, while she still has a look of despair on her puppy-face... I don't know man, really chilly.
No. 35556 ID: 1854db

Hey uh... I'm happy for updates regardless of how often they come but, why's it slowed down?
No. 35557 ID: 9dd0ec

I'm sorry for that. Had some exams (and on some evenings I just got invited to barbecueing) and since making an updates takes a lot of time it's always the first activity I have to cease.
No. 35558 ID: 1854db

That's a good excuse! Thanks for your time.

No. 41670 ID: 04b3ea

Hold on. The psychopathic scientist's name is Nicola Parter. The name tag on the headless corpse read Dr. Nicolas Parter. SHIZNITS

...my mind is fully blown.
No. 41679 ID: e3f578

Oh man
it is only one letter off too it could be a typo (either the company producing the nametag made the typo or the author did while making it) and she's dead or she's stealing the damn name of some other smuck here... or that could be her dad or something, whatever.

I really hope that's her and she died horrifically so we don't have to worry about her anymore.
No. 41721 ID: ab117e

Has anybody noticed that the labcoat guy with the "gravelly voice" bears a lot of similarities to the headless corpse, appearance wise? There's, like, no difference. Compounding to this is the fact that the corpse just RANDOMLY appeared. I think this guy's been stalking us for longer than we think.
No. 41722 ID: ab117e

Speaking of which, we really need to find a nickname for that guy. How bout Brom, the true name of the Headless Horseman?

Shit balls, does Isabel have anything in her pack that can be even remotely used as a weapon?
No. 47219 ID: 8e1ebd

Like the pack itself?
Spinning it + pistol inside = club/sling

I feel like this is endgame. Won't be needing too much carry space soon.
No. 49981 ID: 9ee3bb

Oh. Kay.

Anybody else feels like we should have tried to save Nicole? To prove our "moral superiority"?

Isabel seems to have snapped. Look at the image in the mirror. Is that her lost innocence? Or her goodness?

The roots which are mentioned, are those the black veins? Are WE the infection?

I don't even...
No. 49983 ID: ed57e8

this is why you don't tell a peaceful person to kill. or what looks like torture on the surface.
No. 49984 ID: ed57e8

white veins. too much of anything is bad. we told her to do something she didn't want to do. deep down she still wanted to try and save her. and you all were saying to kill the insane person instead of fixing them.
No. 49985 ID: ed77db

Forcing Isabel to kill while not wanting to kill? Agreed.
Would SANE Nicole try to gently caress us wher et hurts at any opportunity?
Now that's the crux of the matter.
No. 49992 ID: 5af1d7

I stand by all the murder votes. Fuck that bitch.
Besides, insane izzy has such a fun perspective on the world!
No. 49993 ID: e3f578

If we spared her, we'd be as stupid as Rick is in The Walking Dead. She is NOT sane, she is NOT fixable.
Isabella is. It looks like she's human in this hallucination too, maybe instead of being a sentient genetic dog test subject she was also a human forced into a body, like that one other weird experiment that was on that one video but it went bad.

Isabella's probably a successful version of that process. I forget, but isn't the Dark Scientist guy the one from the weird mind switch video I'm talking about? Is he the dog or the scientist?
No. 50032 ID: 3e85e3

Is this a dream sequence though? Seems like Isabel is flashing back to something in her past, or, well, the past of one of the people/dogs she was cobbled together from?

I don't think it was wrong for Isabel to kill Nicola. I was hoping she could do so without enjoying it though. Murder is at best a dispassionate affair, and at worst an addictive nightmare you can get totally pulled into. Angsting over how horrible she is now that she killed in self defense will not accomplish anything. Instead we should focus on what we always do: only killing people who don't obey this rule recursively.

Either way it looks like Isabel is screwed once more. She's still no closer to finding her way out of this facility, if getting out would even help, nor to fixing Herbert.
No. 50033 ID: ed57e8

she was mind controlled in order to kill. she is not herself at the moment. she didn't want to kill, we MADE her do it. so her psyche split.
No. 51069 ID: 59cc77

So uh, is Chapter 4 lost forever?

Whenever I click the archive link I just get 404’d (Same for Doki Doki Overlord)

Is this a case of waiting for all the April fools shenanigans to be undone, or is it really gone?
No. 51071 ID: b85f8c

We mind controlled her, yes. There was no psyche split, though- we were effectively 'overlaid' on top of hers. We were seeing US doing these things. The mind control didn't stop, by the way. Only when she let go of the doll was she released from our control.

I expect she's afraid of us now.
No. 51229 ID: a18021

It appears to be fixed now.

Looks like it's come back with a lovely art shift.
Am I the only one excited/who remembers it?
No. 63405 ID: 6c3b85

I love the new art, too. But that was a whole lotta big information we just pulled out of Eva's head.

Do you think that the dead going nowhere means they evaporate into nothingness, drift into a vast empty neverending void, or just kind of get trapped in their own rotting corpses (or the immediate vincinity thereof)? Cause maybe Labyrinth's ghost is still hanging around. Just kidding, he's gone for good and it's all our fault.

Or maybe her soul was just trapped before because of whatever science mojo that brought her back to life. Which means that dying for real this time either sent her where she needs to go or sent her into some purgatory until we can fix the bad in this place.
No. 64559 ID: 4e045f

Id be willing to say she meant that there's nothingness after death, though there might be something else. They were doing some pretty lovcraftian shit in that lab, right?

Maybe the souls of the dead are going to some demon for eternal suffering? Or, assuming that she did some terrible shit, she just went to some kind of Hell?
No. 64560 ID: e3f578

Not to mention her memory could be really fucked up. No one from the dead is particularly trustworthy on facts, especially someone in her state with all that trauma and regret.

Besides, to a dead mind nothing can be really peaceful. Or it's not even paying attention to its dead state, because it's fucking dead. Her death from her perspective could have felt like a millisecond, (at least the part where she's enert, not dying, that could last for an eternity for all we know, which could be filled with the hallucinations of a dying brain, including long parts of what seems to be nothingness, thanks to her perspective of time being fucked up)
