[[spoiler:And Curtis slowly starts to turn into an alien horror as he does not belong in this world.]] WordOfGod softens this ending a bit into a BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler: Curtis isn't mutating, he's acquired VoluntaryShapeshifting powers as a result of interacting with his homeworld. But along with this new superpower, he'll never fit in with humanity, be tempted to use it for dark purposes, is probably struggling with sex addiction and various mental health issues, and will never be completely happy with Jocelyn.]]

The game centers on the escapades of Curtis Craig, a nebbishy, rat-loving, apparently ordinary office worker at large corporation [=WynTech=]. The game starts off as a typical day for him, but soon increasingly weird things occur, with Curtis receiving hellish visions, and then the mysterious and brutal murder of a coworker occurring. Curtis becomes suspicious that [=WynTech=] is somehow behind what's happening to him, and launches his investigation while desperately trying to hold onto his own sanity.

* ArtificialHuman: [[spoiler: Curtis, to replace the ''real'' Curtis. As a result he has a hard time connecting with people, but gets the consolation prize of being sexually desirable to everyone he meets man or woman.]]



** Curtis finds evidence of a conspiracy. He does not even turn over the evidence to the cops. In fact, there is only one cop he interacts with. On his side, he acts like some raving loony to her. On her side, she dimisses his claims, does not even try to investigate them, and clearly thinks he is full of it and worse. He also tries to communicate his findings to his therapist and even shows her some concrete evidence. His therapist thinks that he is paranoid, delusional, prone to psychotic episodes and has some capacity for violence. To be fair, he was cetainly acting hysterical towards her at some points. His therapist does believe his claims in the end when [[spoiler: she discovers her phone is bugged. Unfortunately, the Hecatomb kills her off shortly afterwards]].

* BondageIsBad: Curtis actually visits an S&M club, and his psychologist finds nothing inherently wrong with Curtis's passing interest in bondage photos. The woman who is encouraging him to try bondage does, however, come off as a complete nutcase and the term "safeword" never comes into the picture.
