Karma

There are multiple different endings to this game. Some will end the game prematurely, and some will become available depending upon your Karma level at the game's completion (based on a starting Karma of 1).

When there are opportunities to gain or lose Karma, these are highlighted in the walkthrough below. You can view your current Karma level by looking at the number of marks on the blackboard in the left of the Research Room.

The Karma-based endings and associated achievements are summarized in the final sections.
