Part 10: Carlos's Decision

Part 10: Carlos's Decision

Close race this time. Remember we can always replay this fragment to go down the other path next!

Obviously it must be Carlos himself.

I was joking around last time but the game really earns its M/17+-rating here.

Music: Glacial Solitude

Quiet footsteps, then the chainsaw revs again.

Carlos's words shock the crazy eyes out of Akane.

A shout from Carlos, and the music goes silent.

Music: Confession 2nd Mix

There are some choking noises out of Carlos here.

Carlos struggling to breathe. Flashback time!

Mom... Dad...

You couldn't have...killed Junpei... And I... I...

Did that go how everyone thought it would?

We have the same 16 options we didn't take last time. Plus the option to replay the Pantry decision, with a different result. So another 17-option poll here. Select the story fragment.
