I thought was an excellent look at how it would feel to be in a situation like this, that no one would want to go through in their real lives. I'm interested in going back through and see what dialogue the other choices would get, although I picked what I thought was best for my first playthrough. It's the second game I play in my video, starts at 10:44

Thank you for your play through! There is no “bad ending” to the game, only whatever choices you think are right. The dialogue will vary based on your choices, but it does converge in most cases.
