The Ending (Spoilers)

[Post New]by Malekitty on Jul 13, 13 4:58 AM
I think the ending is terribly unsatisfying, having the villain run away after all the effort of the player to solve the case in the main game and in the bonus chapter. It would be better to eliminate or incarcerate him and introduce a new villain in a sequel.

The villain comes across as someone serving his own goals and not someone out to cull cats. Bearing in mind the uniqueness of Ulthar's cat worshipping culture it would be unlikely if the detective should encounter the mayor again in another town under similar circumstances.

Saving the villain becomes formulaic so that the developer can bring him back in a sequel. But if you dont plan ahead to have a plausible sequel, perhaps you should eliminate the villain for the sake of a better closure.
