Story spoilers below:
After watching the playthrough videos (thanks Solo!) something has me confused about the storyline. What exactly is the “Master plan”? From what I can tell they intended to use Crimson Scale disease as a weapon against the people from “outer space”. In fact it seems they may be referring to the people on their home planet, Earth. But then they kill the dragon because it couldn’t be allowed to reach Earth and spread Crimson Scale disease there? I’m not entirely sure what to think about it. Here are some of the relevant quotes from the script:
[quote]Perhaps at its conclusion, the trail will lead us to the source of Crimsonscale Disease itself. If so, we may be able to unravel the mysteries of the disease, and it is not unrealistic to imagine we may even be able to develop a reliable cure for it. This would save the lives of many Draco inhabitants.
But? if that did happen, our ongoing plans for Draco would all be rendered pointless. That?s not a desirable outcome?
Urgh! I actually made myself shudder with that last thought.
What am I saying? Since when is saving people?s lives undesirable? If our aim is ?to preserve the peace and happiness of the many,? then even if we are talking about people back home?[/quote]
[quote]?You know, thinking about it, that thing?s putting a bit of a monkey wrench in the works for your master plan, huh??
?Sorry? Our ?master plan???
?Don?t try to pretend you don?t know what I mean. We?re not lab rats. I know what?s going on.?[/quote]
[quote]The water appears to be subterranean Draco water. If Crimsonscale Disease is actually seeping out of the Draco underground, then?
Surely it is something we could catch just like the viruses we already understood? Springing out of the center of the planet, a great power to infect those coming from outer space?[/quote]
