Honestly, I talked with Germ as often as I could, but I never once got an offer to hang out with him. Any tricks or hints to getting it?
It's on one specific day. I think it's the first day you can go to the Food Donkey area.
Basically, you'll want to be sure to explore the whole town every day. Though you can eventually stop checking on the rats after you've fed them enough that they "leave the nest". There are no new events in that building afterward. I know, I kept it up the whole game my first run.
Loving this game. Feels oddly long for an indie title, which is good.
Unlike some others, I think the Cosmic Horror story works perfectly well with the narrative.
For people who've finished the game. I have some food for thought... massive spoilers obviously.
Think there was a Cosmic Deadline involved with that ending though. Heh heh heh.

Regarding 4, Mae's condition is pretty heavily implied to be depression or anxiety related dissociation including a psychotic break. Its not a coming of age thing or an eldritch thing. Just an undiagnosed mental illness because small town doctor/dentists who prescribe journals to everyone probably aren't the best to help with something like this. Mae even says that she was misdiagnosed as having an anger issue.
Regarding 2, one of the cultists apparently has the power to walk through walls and that's how they got through the fence.
1: no, The spring dried up long ago, and hole itself is the empty remnants of that spring.
2: what bocaj said.
3: No. He's just weird.
4: You're a bit off. Mae (and many of her friends for that matter) is rather explicitly suffering from poor mental health. She disassociates wildly, tries to stave off disassociative feelings and anxiety with reckless, risk taking behavior, and has deep seated self worth issues. Also slightly chosen by an Eldritch Abomination
Well, the Janitor might be God. Or he might just know a lot about Mae somehow and have really good timing.
Yeah, basically the janitor is The Forest God
It is the only thing he ever says about his own identity for sure, after all...just because it was in the context of a play doesn't mean it isn't true. The 'Judeo-Christian' (?) God might or might not still exist, though, no matter what that other thing said.
scott benson more or less said they were aiming for it to not mirror judeo-christianity too much but hit the important beats for familiarity
Oh good, I'm not the only one that thought the cult members were just that sort of "We want the world back how it used to be" sort of people that voted for Trump because they want their dying coal mine industry revitalized, the government to be anti-immigrant and anti-poor way of society back.
Bea did bring up a good point though, how many of those people were actually miners, and how are they doing in life that they think they still need to be doing this?

oh my god This is fantastic :D
Seeing that picture makes me remember that these are people in like their mid-twenties and not kids because of the art style xD
yup! they're all like, 20 years old. Angus and Gregg may be a bit older.
I'm generally iffy on the concept of humanifying characters but I really like these two pictures
Iz not my fault shapes
yeah her stuff is great :D
I saw it all on twitter a few weeks ago I think.
So the team are apparently still working on patches for the game, and certain things that were trimmed for release date timing's sake may find their way back in in time.
Mando Pony decided to do a "Die Anywhere Else" cover. I've been wondering how that song is supposed to be sung.
Hey. Does anyone know what Mae's middle school embarrassing horror story is (the one she can tell to the goth teens at the graveyard)? Or at least have a link to a video of it?
Isn't that when Mae started to see everyone as shapes, and she ran into that Casey guy who said "hi" to her, and whom she never met before, and beat him up because he was just shapes?

No, according to the game's CMOF page it's something related to a guy she took to prom.
That's the high school one.
Turns out she bled on her chair at school, only for another student to sit on it without noticing. She saw him later at the nurses office with blood all over his pants and they were calling his mom. Mae thinks he knew because the way he looked at her.
Ah, first period.

How well does it match the trope?
