Even a relentlessly creepy Cosmic Horror story can get at least one in - namely, in that the entire ending sequence feels really good. Alex channels the spirits of each of the Chosen who were martyred to pave the way up to the retrieval of the Essences during her boss fight with Pious to let them each get a strike in, Edward appears to help her bind her summoned Ancient, he appears on the platform with her to say that he's proud of what she's done, and the game cuts to Alex calmly narrating the end of her own passage in the Tome of Eternal Darkness. Congratulations, player, you've saved the world. You know. For now.
