VLR OST: [Eeriness]

Listen in: [English/Japanese]

Sorry... I decided to choose "betray".

Oh, so you don't care what happens to Quark?!

What kind of a cold-hearted bastard are you?!

Please... Just give it back...

We found the Axelavir... in the laboratory..

And Dio... stole it...

You mean he has it? Right now?


[Music fades out]

No! Don't!

Listen in: [English/Japanese]


VLR OST: [Consternation]

What are you doing?!

A promise is a promise.
If you'd chosen "ally", this never would've happened.
You wanna blame someone? Blame yourselves.



I let out a guttural roar, and leapt forward--
Only to be stopped short by a firm hand on my arm.

Listen in: [English/Japanese]

Hold it.

Why are you stopping me?!

Because this isn't the time for that.

Huh? What do you mean this isn't the time for--

Look at the number nine door.

K was indeed standing in front of the door.

What... what is he...?


[Music fades out]

His BP is 9...


Listen in: [English/Japanese]

VLR OST: [Demise]

What am I doing?
Well, that should be obvious, but if you insist; I am attempting to leave.

Are you fucking kidding me?!

I assure you I would do no such thing.
I am perfectly serious.
After a rational assessment of the facts, I have concluded that this is the wisest course of action.

The answer is, of course, to save Quark.
He must be taken to a hospital as soon as possible.

Currently, the only one of us capable of doing so is myself.
That is why I intend to escape.

And leave us all behind...

Unavoidable, but as I said, I do intend to call for help.

Couldn't you have at least waited until the next round?
Then you could have raised Quark's BP to 9, and taken him with you...

I have no illusions about what Dio would do.


This is the most logical choice.

It will remain open for 9 seconds.

Where's Alice?

Ah, yes. Alice is in the AB Room.

She is only... sleeping.

Oh no... What did you do to Alice?!

You will need to ask her yourself.
I must take my leave.

Hey! Goddamnit! Wait!

This ends the Nonary Game.
Thank you for your participation.
As the game is over, all doors other than the number nine door have been unlocked.
Escape is not possible.
Please enjoy your stay.


And there we go. Our first legit Bad Ending... and our first Ending, period, for that matter.

For some reason, the Bad Endings are attributed, often quite arbitrarily, to one character or another.

Since we haven't discovered any new paths since the last time we had a vote, our next jump will be the next most popular option on the poll; in this case, going back to the start and teaming up with Alice. Let's hope this path will help us make sense of things!
