Guide to All Endings:
Written by RottingGem
This guide will show you how to get each of the 3 endings. Not spoiling
the endings, but assuming you have played through at least once and seen
one of the endings, so you know what scene is being referenced.
So, not every choice in this game affects your route.
Your first set of questions is just for lore, when you first meet Vashtra.
Choosing anything but “Hesitate” will give you some background, and return
you to the list, minus that question. “Hesitate” will move you forward to
the next scene and end your opportunity to ask questions, so start from the
top if you care about lore. (Stay silent or ask for details ALSO apparently
has no effect on anything.)
The second question also has no bearing on your route. Struggle or not, it
makes no difference.
The THIRD choice, several in-game days later, is when your choices start
To get the Best Ending, aka the Twins Ending, your choice of what to focus
on here must be “your brother.” After that choice, you are locked in, gg.
You then have the Momentous Scene, and the choice to “keep the secret” or
“confess”. This will affect who administers the Purification Ritual – the
Patriarch will do so if you confess, or Gorian will do so if you hide it.
Gorians scenes are much more /personally involved/, while the Patriarch at
least keeps up a veneer of professionalism. (Personally, I found this
section the most challenging to get through, even moreso than the Bad Ending.
Choose wisely based on how much crying Seles you want to see…)
Note that there DOES appear to be a short missable scene featuring Llyr,
which you get by choosing to “keep the secret,” and then much later, choose
to “agree” with Gorian.
Either way, since you chose “your brother” earlier, both twins will recover
and get their tails, and Seles will confess his doubts to Vel, and the twins
will begin investigating, leading to the mysteries being uncovered, and then
the Twins Ending.
Second, the Temple Ending. You can either start over and find the skip
button, or go back to a previous save.
This time, you have to choose to be worried about “your priesthood”, which
lore-wise fits in with choosing to dedicate yourself to the Temple. Then,
after your Big Moment, choose to confess your sin to the Council. The
Purification Ritual will go much smoother with him in charge instead of
Gorian. The twins are allowed back into their rooms to wait out the 7 days.
The Patriarch will declare them “purified” and their “fluids” non-poisonous.
Following that, you will be presented with the option to view an optional
scene for the Insemination Ritual. Theres no CG and the writing for the
scene itself is pretty uninterested and bland, so unless you really want
Sel and Vel to have canonically bred a bunch of female “temple servants”
theres no compelling reason to watch it, imo.
Vashtra joins the twins on their pilgrimage to convert the whole kingdom.
Theres a tiny choice, just after leaving the temple, of whether or not
Vashtra submits to the new authority or fights it. It does not change
your ending, but you get a bit more humiliation for the twins if he backs
Then the rest of the Temple Ending plays out, (and its kind of depressing,
actually) and only one more to go.
For the Bad Ending, choose the “priesthood” as being more important than
your brother. Then after your Big Moment, choose to “keep it a secret.”
You can, after the clandestine purification ritual, choose to agree with
Gorian, if you want Seles to see Llyr for one last time before the
inevitable Bad End.
