I need help on 6, 8, and 13. Please?

how do I get the ending 12 and 13

HOW DO I GET ENDING 12 AND 13??

i beat the game but.. i never got ending 12 i just used clues to figure it out and im confused-- so how were you ment to get it??

also this is the coolest web game ive ever seen i love how all of the charecters have their own story and the whole vibe of this feels nostalgic in the best way possible :)

how do we get ending 12 and 13????

12 I remember is that when you talk to the purple kid and when he ask you if you want to ride with him you said no and fight him

And 13 I think just need to guess your name

If you really want to know the last letter:




















it M

The game is simply amazing. Kudos to the creator and I wish you the very best.

I love how you just click the yellow buttons to move on, and NOT wasd, so that even mobile can play!

Amazing game!!

Anyone know what to do to get ending 8 and 13 though?

Can't seem to figure out ending 6...anyone can help?

There are two ways to get it iirc, the first way is to wait for Moneybags/Kyler to leave, then go to the forest and return. The other way is to say no to him when he offers you a ride, and then fighting him

this game is really fun and i love it!

i regret killing the spider my first run tho...lilo did not forgive me for that.

same- i felt so bad lol

This is an awesome game! Sadly I still can't get endings 7 & 13. So far I've spent like an hour on this but it is still fun!

the missing letters are

for ending 7 you gotta talk to June and choose to twirl the scissors, then say yes to get a ride from her, then when her sister asks for her name just say June then voila!

Thank you so much!!

this is so sick

I did it because of autocorrect i was thinking so hard but I copied and erased the spacing and lines them the magic name was there I got all of the endings

i love this and everything about this. i played it during my lunch break and it was so good i lowkey continued for a while after. Do you have a patreon or a buymeacoffee? i would like to make a donation to cover michaelangelo's funeral expenses

12/10 early buses gret game i lob tysm for blessing with game life game yes gud i killed michelangelo i should be tried for my crimes

OK I LOVE THIS GAME BUT HOW ON EARTH DO I GET ENDING 12!!! I HAVE EVERY OTHERENDING EXCEPT IT!!!

oh, spoilers i guess? for everyone else, i mean;

you have to go get the scissors from lilo first, and then get whatever ending you want after, since you can't get ending 12 on that route

then you 'restart' and talk to kyler/moneybags.

you have to decline kyler's offer to join his ride, and then pick the 'fight' choice. then you pretty much don't need to do anything else

I played this because I love stickman games and this game is epic

this is rlllyyy good

I really enjoyed the game! Good work and thank you!

Played it some hours ago, during night time. It pretty much catched my attention from the very first moment. The artstyle choices, the looped music, the story, everything makes it a very curious tale which you want to know more about with every step you take.
Surprisingly, I was able to obtain all the endings "in a good way", and I gotta admit that it was worth the time. 
Thank you for letting people enjoy it in a very comfortable way and I hope it reaches much more public! ^-^.

Wow. There is so much here, this is a really cool experience and the art design is amazing! I really, really enjoyed the experience of playing this little game, thank you.
