Making the change that saved the brother might have been what caused him not to be able to return from the "Shimmering World."

That the answer from Marina, my friend, to your post Jenny:
I totally agree with the content of Jenny 100's post! That was exactly my feelings as well!!!
Actually my vision of the game was not cheerful at all. I didn't mention the opinion

that giving back life to his brother would cost the professor his own existence
, because I just gave it for granted!

Thanks, Carla.
That explanation makes it more clear why the professor was so insistent that

his brother not try to follow him and that his research not be pursued -- but that the capsule must be preserved. The professor didn't want to risk anything happening that would cause his sacrifice for his brother to be undone.

P.S. - I like your Snoopy in the snow avatar.

I finished the game and I have to say that it was one of the most thought provoking games I've played recently, the other being The Lost Crown.
The ending took me by surprise, and immediately had me rethinking all that happened in the game. In many respects it is a sad story, but it represents the determined achievement of your older brother. That you, the younger brother (in the game) make it to the end, shows that he was successful in his endeavors.

My impression of the game at the time was that it was about death & the journey to the 'otherside'? - but I'd have to play it again as it was a while ago! smile

yes I reviewed this game a while ago. I said then and still believe that it is one of the best "new" games in years. I've not been able to convince myself about what the ending means, but I really enjoyed that element of the game. (I'm also the only person I know who really enjoyed the lack of ending in "STILL LIFE")
If all the people were heroes, there would be no one to watch the parades.
