We all knew this was going to happen eventually, right?



I mean, who expects to go up against elder gods over and over again without being forced to sacrifice a trusting companion on a subterranean seaside altar with a hammer at some point? (He says, having clearly been given the option to run away without staining his hands.)

The last time we let Haru have a go at this whole cosmic mystery thing, he got himself well and truly moidered during the fourth investigation. Obviously we already know he's doing better this time, but is victory finally within his grasp, or does he get one step closer to Aiko's failure record?



I don't know why we had to knock over one of Ath-Yolaszth's telescopes instead of the weird spider cocoon egg sac thing I was expecting, but the endgame results screen has the right of it: Cthac-Atorasu is momentarily delayed at long last, and that's indeed all gods down, assuming an obliviously optimistic enough definition of "down".

At first I was convinced my faffing about with the cigarette achievement would eventually spell doom, but no, it turns out we got carried all the way to success on the back of that hammer, and even our old frenemies didn't come close to stopping us.

Aaaaanyway. We'll have something a little different next time, and then I'll be leaving some juice for until after the game's next update. Maybe then we'll have a little less Aka Manto and a little more school scissors and bulletin boards!

And now, for a fleshbound mortal's share of the infinite glories...



I feel like saying "if I had made better choices I'm pretty sure I could have made it all the way", but that really could have been the motto of this entire series. I didn't even cast any spells, so picking Ath-Yolaszth would have spared me all of Goizo's extra resting penalties. I wasn't even sure we'd get the opportunity to rest at all!

So close, though. And that early Ritual Knife was authentic chef's kiss. Maybe I'll give it another shot some time.

Speaking of time, as mentioned, I'm going on hiatus until the next update. The Steam forums are bitterly divided about whether Panstasz has been abducted and sacrificed by gibbering cultists (in other words, whether he's run away with the early access money) or if he's just perpetually delayed by real life from offering us his next batch of heebie-jeebies, so it seems to be up to the fates on that topic.

At any rate! Thanks for watching so far, folk. This whole deal has been meaning a lot to me in a variety of ways, and it has been, and I believe will likely be again in the future, a source of both joy and courage to have you by my side in spirit.

Or at least I hope that spirit was you, because if it wasn't, I'm probably in real effing trouble.
