Confused about Dream machine and Kathy Rain endings
So I’m very confused about the ending of these two games, I feel like there’s a deeper meaning to these games that I don’t understand, can somebody please explain it to me.
For Kathy Rain, that can be difficult. The game was inspired by the movie “Twin Peaks” most people are critical of the ending, including me. Here is the best I can do: The sense of otherworldly spirits is present throughout the game. So at the end, We’re treated to a nightmare world where Kathy must come to terms with her own demons regarding her family and her past using these otherworldly spirits and of course destroying the red flowers such that they can no longer do anyone harm again.
Over at steam, there’s a discussion of the ending that will really help:
I enjoy playing adventure games on handheld systems- PS VITA, Nintendo DS and ipad mini.
Kathy Rain was also a Community Playthrough. The developer was also a participant, and offered insight into the game’s idiosyncrasies, as well as what he felt were some of the end game shortcomings. You can read the thread here. Many of the comments at the end of the thread might answer your questions.
Thank you guys, any inside to the idea of the time loop in dream machine? How that made sense.
