I just finished Overclocked (what a great game, btw, for those who hasn't played it yet) and there's a question nagging at me when the ending came around.
Click to reveal..
Whose huge puddle of blood was that? That big puddle just in front of Laura's door.

There has always been just the five of them, and the five of them survived. "Whoever it was...he's dead" but who?


also...
Click to reveal..
Since the Pentagon was on the project and they were willing to kill everyone who knew about it, wouldn't the main characters still be in danger despite that one guy they killed?


to my cynical self, it seemed that...
Click to reveal..
The ending camera zoomed into the car behind Kim as they had their reunion...could it be a trap? She did make things seem pretty final the last time he saw her.


Loved the game tons, but either I missed something or those were meant to be unanswered questions. Any ideas?

OK, I wondered about some of these things too.

Click to reveal..
1. The pool of blood remained a mystery at the end. The only one
in the game who could have supplied it was the deer caught in
the barbed wire, but how did it get moved inside? And to what
purpose? That looks to me like an undeveloped plot point that
the writers dropped.

2. The 4 remaining dispersed in NYC. The Pentagon may want to get
them, but first it would have to find them. That at least
would be plausible.

3. I dunno. Kim would have to have a motive to betray him. What
would that be?

I believe
Click to reveal..
[the blood is part of the experiment to enrage the subjects.

Kim could read the file about her husband and so, of course, she forgave him (at least, that's what i hope..).

I liked the game - it's definitely not for children but an important theme for a game.

I thought:
Click to reveal..
1) The same as seagul regarding the blood - it was there to test them just like the scene where the Pentagon guy shot at the doors.


A few questions I had were:
Click to reveal..
1) Who and why did they kill Laura (cell 2)?

2) Two of the five escaped the island via rafts, but how did the other three get off? In the same vein, how did Jon get to the island in the end?


I enjoyed it - it was different in the way it presented the story backwards and it kept my interest. woozy

I think the last scene was a trap... They wanted him so they tell his wife to go and meet him... He would not run away...


also i have one more question...

Click to reveal..
what happened to that poor girl in cell 2? Did she actually kill her self?

Yes but
Click to reveal..
later we found the dr overhearing the conversation on cell 1 and the guy there was a lot more talkative than the girl in cell 2
duh

As I see it the Dr didn't know what Laura knew, only that some progress was made, at the time of overhearing the conversation on cell 1 the Dr probably realized that all of the patients would remember and decided to change strategy.

The doctor's observation...
Click to reveal..
I find it hard to believe that the cells in staten island wasn't bugged. If they were conducting an experiment where David is part of, all the rooms would be bugged and there would be no need for the doctor to listen outside their doors.


About the blood,
Click to reveal..
Before the ending actually came about I thought there might be a scene explaining the blood - likely "cliff" killed a guard of some sort, but no scene explained it. Unresolved mystery I guess...


Raybres/
Click to reveal..
I never even thought about that! How did those people get back to Manhattan? As for Jonathan, there WAS a boat at the pier - maybe he stole that. Otherwise, I have no idea. Maybe he found Laura's raft?

The most odd thing out of the above holes is
Click to reveal..
the fact that in the very end of the last cutscene the focus switches to a POLICE car, not just any car... have they come to arrest him or did they just kindly escort his wife there to meet him? This one shouldn't have been left as a mystery, bad move.


I found some other thing missing, which I didn't see mentioned anywhere:
Click to reveal..
I seem to be missing one recording - "Cell 5, Nov. 9, night, part 3". I do have parts 1,2 and 4. It's either a bug, or intentional, or I missed it somehow and was able to finish the game anyway. Can someone please check if they have this recording in one of the latest saves of day 5? Thanks.

SirGraham,

I thought...
Click to reveal..
The police car was kind of a set up for perhaps a sequel to show that "someone" is still watching him. I didn't get the impression that they escorted his wife there.


I checked my game and...
Click to reveal..
There was no part 3.

Well,
Click to reveal..
while this is probably the most logical scenario, I think that in the real world they'd use something more incospicuous than a police car to watch him smile


Click to reveal..
Well, I guess it's an oversight then rather than me missing something, thanks for making me more relaxed! razz
