He's my favorite because both of his endings are cheerful! Others are just.....I guess happily ever after aren't in style anyone, since all books and novels and movies that I have seen or read end bitttersweet now.....And then there's Yuras, both of his ending was.....I guess that what you can expect from a hunger games victor......

Thanks I was just having problems dealing with the password. Is there just four endings in the land path? Because I can't help thinking it was more? Anyway, I finally got the password.
I done Rexus' route both of the good endings. And then I can't sleep at night with all the new nfo that I got in one day, Belph made a computer and a piano safe, Yuras was in the Hunger Games, and Rexus....Well I have to say you are the genius! I love how all of this ties together with the story in X-note. And I did not get anything about Oure and the Phantom, hopefully I'll get that in Ferim's route, or I'll probably spam your inbox with questions....Anyway, I got that I should only play a few routes per days to suck in all the extra information.

Never less your games are the best I have ever played, I don't really have a problem with the bittersweet endings because I find most endings that I read or watch bittersweet, I think that's a thing now, a trend,  to not let things end happily ever after.... I mean, Hunger Games, Harry Potter, Divergent, most good books ends with your favorite character and OTP dead, so I guess they have a club or something, where they discuss who to kill next.

I don't watch/read any of the show you mentioned, so I wouldn't know what you are talking about in regards of endings. But I consider Area-X final ending as happy than bittersweet. Bittersweet is more applicable to Sea Path endings.

I personally prefer writing stories where the characters go through trial and tribulation before getting their happy ending, that way that ending will feel more real - an achievement, a reward of what they have gone through. In this case, Area-X is a fine example of that. It's a happy, full of hope ending.

Yeah but sometimes I feel that the happy endings aren't really enough for what the characters have to go through, like all of the endings in sea path were either sad or creepy, and then there's one final happy ending in the end. But I stick to what I have said, unless it's twilight, most authors don't end with an happily ever after now, they usually just ends with a all was well and leave you saying ALL WAS NOT WELL YOU KILLED OFF MY FAVORITE CHARACTER WHY, and then I'll go cry in the corner and all that. I really think it's a trend of some kind.
But still awesome game.

I consider Area-X as one continuous big story. Sea Path is the trial and tribulation that I mentioned. Elcia has to go through that before getting the Sky. If Sea Path endings are happy then the impact of Sky wouldn't be there. Sea Path is her struggle. Sea Path must not end perfect, or else there's no meaning for creating Sky.

For me, I consider Area-X ends with a happy ending because Sky is the final path. If I end the series with Sea, then yes, it would have been a sad, bittersweet end. But I didn't. I created Sky for that purpose.

And again, I know nothing of what you read. I'm not following any kind of trend. I'm just making ending that makes the most sense within the universe I set up. Considering the set up of the story where everything is supposed to get destroyed, I think the ending is extremely generous.

Last but not least, if you are talking about the fate of a certain person in Sky Path, he is meant to be gone in EVERY ending. That's his purpose, to fix the time, and he will disappear after he's done with it. But in his path, he actually made a difference! If you still think that doesn't satisfy you, there's nothing I can do. -_-

Sorry I think you misunderstood I was not really talking about your story and that you are following a trend, just that most of what I have read ends that way, and that it is true that most of what I have read ends horribly, like a lovable twin lost one of it's twin so that the living twin without ear could never be happy or the couple who finally got married after years of struggeling and then the husband died right before the birth of his son or that Harry finally got a father figure but was killed after one book or the doctor who have to disappear in to nothingness or the hottest dwarves of the dwarf gang died and the notsohot dwarves lived....I got a lot more examples but I won't bore you with them because you don't know what I'm talking about and it has nothing to do with you just my fangirl feels. But I wasn't talking about your story I was really talking about the trend of books and stories ending. So sorry about if I sound mean before but I was just saying that there is a trend these days and that a lot of authors are following it. I don't think you are following it if you don't know about those stories that I was referencing before. 
And I was meaning to ask you this: What happened to OURE?

You can make your own theory on Oure. I left in open ended for a reason. It's not to hard to speculate based on what you know in X-note and Area-X.
