Not sure if this goes here, since it's not directly related to an editing action, but... this is interesting. Having played through about 90% of Runner, but not having played any of the other games in the series, or seen any of the viral marketing videos that were apparently also important in establishing the plot, I never would have guessed that there was any overarching story, much less any deep symbolism about life, not just vaguely inferred by fans but specifically spelled out in the form of a Mind Screwdriver. (For that matter, I wasn't even aware that they were supposed to be played in any specific order).

I still probably wouldn't have imagined anything like that even after playing through the ending of Runner as described here, as without context I probably would have just brushed it off as a Gainax Ending.

Are we sure that the recurring boss is called Mingrawn Timbletot and that's not just the UFO at the end of Runner's first zone? Jonathan Holmes seems to think it's "The Source", but a wiki acknowledges it as Mingrawn Timbletot. Guess if anyone has anything else to say, I'll just keep this up here.

I trust a wiki over Holmes; maybe there was a Word of God sometime around Fate's release and we've simply missed it.
