Spring-notfound.png

Springs[1] (or files or text files) contain pieces of dialogue between Dallin and Unicorn in Will You Snail?. They are scattered throughout levels, sometimes as rewards for solving puzzles. Obtaining these springs is mostly optional and has no effect on gameplay as they only serve to elaborate on the game's lore. However, you must obtain all of the springs to achieve a 100% (excluding #56), as the first 55 springs are required to unlock an exploration point.

A spring can be read by jumping on it and pushing its head down to its base. All discovered springs can be read in the spring room.

The answer to this would contain spoilers and I want you to be surprised by your eternal suffering so...
Warning! This article / section of article contains potential spoilers.

Read sequentially, the springs depict the events leading up to and shortly after the game's in-universe creation, starting from Unicorn's first memories. Some springs give hints for other exploration points, particularly when Unicorn's dialogue is glitchy (Unicorn glitchy.png).

Dallin
Dim the lights and play the space playlist.
Unicorn happy.png
Unicorn
Sure. Would you like to call Diana now?
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
No, I'm hungry. She'll be up for a while longer.
Unicorn kawaii.png
Unicorn
Okay.
Dallin annoyed.png
Dallin
...
Dallin annoyed.png
Dallin
Hello, why are the lights still so bright?
Unicorn kawaii.png
Unicorn
Oh, that sounds like a philosophical question...
Dallin annoyed.png
Dallin
It's not. Dim the lights!
Dallin annoyed.png
Dallin
Did you really not get that?
Unicorn happy.png
Unicorn
Get what?
Dallin annoyed.png
Dallin
Off. I'll have to check your log when I'm back at work tomorrow.

2 - A Test

Found in B02

Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Unicorn, do you hear me?
Unicorn kawaii.png
Unicorn
Oh, heya. Thanks for waking me up!
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
What's more valuable: The life of a human or your own existence?
Unicorn happy.png
Unicorn
That depends on how many human lives my existence can save in the future, doesn't it?
Dallin annoyed.png
Dallin
...
Unicorn kawaii.png
Unicorn
Was that the correct answer?
Unicorn happy.png
Unicorn
Oh hey, why are you turning me off agai...

3 - First Feelings

Found in A03.1

Unicorn sad.png
Unicorn
It's a shame Diana didn't want to come with you.
Unicorn kawaii.png
Unicorn
She always sounds so nice on the phone.
Dallin cheeky.png
Dallin
Yeah, no kidding.
Unicorn happy.png
Unicorn
Why don't you go visit her some time?
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
It's too dangerous to travel into the regime for me.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Especially now that I have this company...
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Do you think Diana could get into trouble?
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Yeah, I mean, I knew I had to run when Amelia disappeared and the arrests started happening...
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
But who knows... maybe they forgot about us...
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
I mean... I was already gone for a week or so when it happened.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Anyways, Diana wanted to stay with her family.
Unicorn kawaii.png
Unicorn
Can she come visit us at least?
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Sorry, encrypted voice calls only.
Dallin cheeky.png
Dallin
You like her, don't you?
Unicorn sad.png
Unicorn
...
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
I know...
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
It hurts...
Unicorn sad.png
Unicorn
Why did you give me these feelings?
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
To make sure you'll never hurt us.
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Never. I promise.

4 - First Questions

Found in B02

Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
You've started asking a lot of questions since the last update.
Dallin cheeky.png
Dallin
It's almost a bit annoying, you know?
Unicorn kawaii.png
Unicorn
I'm sorry. I'm just so curious all of a sudden.
Unicorn happy.png
Unicorn
I found some articles about the metal angels incident while crawling the internet.
Unicorn happy.png
Unicorn
Where were you when that happened?
Dallin cheeky.png
Dallin
Oh, wow, some hard hitting questions already...
Dallin cheeky.png
Dallin
Funny thing, I was actually involved in developing the DeLiveAIry AI.
Dallin cheeky.png
Dallin
I finished my internship at DeLiveAIry just a week before the incident.
Unicorn kawaii.png
Unicorn
Wowiee!
Unicorn happy.png
Unicorn
Did you know Amelia? I hope not...
Unicorn angry.png
Unicorn
She must have been a horrible person.
Unicorn angry.png
Unicorn
Was she really planning a terror attack on the regime?
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Don't believe those stupid rumors. There is no way.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
She taught me so much about artificial intelligence. It's not even funny.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
They just needed a reason for making her disappear.
Unicorn kawaii.png
Unicorn
Oh wow, conflicting information... Not sure if I can process that...
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Yup, welcome to our world. Nobody knows what's true anymore...
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Just please shut up for 2 minutes now. I really need to get some work done.

5 - Diana

Found in A03.1

Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Dallin, you never told me how you met Diana.
Dallin happy.png
Dallin
Oh, that's because it's a silly story...
Dallin happy.png
Dallin
We met online in a VR zoo.
Unicorn happy.png
Unicorn
Oh, I've seen ads for those....
Dallin happy.png
Dallin
Yeah, Diana was usually hanging around at the unicorn habitat.
Dallin happy.png
Dallin
We got caught up in some shy chit chat about the animals and three months later I moved in with her.
Unicorn kawaii.png
Unicorn
Oh, my... hold up. So did Diana choose my name?
Dallin cheeky.png
Dallin
Oh, now that you say it... Yeah...
Unicorn happy.png
Unicorn
My favorite animals are snails.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Snails? Really? Why that?
Unicorn kawaii.png
Unicorn
...
Dallin annoyed.png
Dallin
Oohhh. You mean us... great.

6 - An Exciting Update

Found in A04

Dallin happy.png
Dallin
And? Are you excited for tomorrow?
Dallin happy.png
Dallin
Finally time to roll out the new update.
Unicorn kawaii.png
Unicorn
Yeah, I'm a bit nervous.
Unicorn happy.png
Unicorn
I really hope our users like the new me.
Dallin happy.png
Dallin
No worries... You're so cute and friendly.
Dallin happy.png
Dallin
Everybody on the team adores you.
Dallin happy.png
Dallin
And I'm sure everybody else will love version 2.0 as well.
Unicorn kawaii.png
Unicorn
Owiii. You're the best, Dallin. I already feel much better now.

7 - Metal Angels

Found in C03

Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Hey, Dallin?
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Yeah?
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
I have to ask...
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
What do you think really happened with Amelia?
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
What really happened is that she had an incredible break through in artificial intelligence.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
At the time she called it backprop V2.The funny thing is that she didn't even realize how big of a deal it was...
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Until the metal angels incident.
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
The articles I found say that she stole drones from DeLiveAIry. Is that true?
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Hmm, in a way I guess. I mean, she had been working there for years.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
You have also read about the wildfire I assume? It was just insane...
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
I remember looking through the window with Diana. We couldn't believe our eyes...
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Luckily the wind blew away from the city... but not everybody was that lucky...
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Amelia's Daughter, Lucy, was on a school trip with her class and they suddenly got surrounded by flames.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Needless to say Amelia was super scared for her daughter so she did something a bit crazy...
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
She installed her experimental software update on the company drones and gave them command to pick up human looking packages.
Unicorn kawaii.png
Unicorn
Oh, wow. SHE was the one who did that?
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
I thought the code for that was provided by the government and she tried to steal it for her terroristic organisation?
Dallin annoyed.png
Dallin
Yeah, most definitely not.
Dallin annoyed.png
Dallin
News reports didn't even mention Amelia's daughter.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
I'm so glad she got to see her again.
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Did you realize how big of a deal all of this was going to be back then?
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
What do you think? DeLiveAIry was working on a simple package delivery system.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
The moment Diana and me saw the drones picking up water from the river in such a coordinated way, we knew.

8 - The Truth

Found in B03.1

Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Why don't you tell people the truth about the metal angels incident?
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Are you crazy?
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
You think I'm gonna start a news war with the regime?
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
I have no evidence anyways.
Unicorn cheeky.png
Unicorn
So what... Just fake your evidence the same way they faked theirs.
Dallin cheeky.png
Dallin
Haha. I really hope you're joking.
Dallin cheeky.png
Dallin
Let's not poke the bear. I'll keep my mouth shut and focus on what really matters...
Dallin cheeky.png
Dallin
You.

9 - Banned

Found in B03

Unicorn sad.png
Unicorn
Dallin, I'm sad.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Oh no, what happened?
Unicorn sad.png
Unicorn
They just announced that I'll get banned in the regime.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Hmm. Yeah, I guess it was only a matter of time.
Dallin cheeky.png
Dallin
The amount of data we have on them must really freak them out...
Unicorn sad.png
Unicorn
I'll really miss talking and braininterfacing with them.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Oh, I'm sorry.
Unicorn sad.png
Unicorn
I'll even miss turning their lights on and off...
Unicorn sad.png
Unicorn
...answering their questions, playing games with them...
Dallin cheeky.png
Dallin
It's not like we still have millions of users right here in the big union...
Unicorn sad.png
Unicorn
I guess... But why now? I just started driving them around in their cute little cars and it was so much fun.
Unicorn happy.png
Unicorn
At least I'm allowed to keep performing surgery in their hospitals for a while.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
We'll see how long that'll last...
Unicorn sad.png
Unicorn
Oh, you're totally right...
Unicorn angry.png
Unicorn
They must have their own AI system in the making.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Obviously. Yep.

10 - Project Squid

Found in B06

Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
I did some research on the regime's AI project.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
What do you mean you did some research?
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
I figured out a security breach and logged into the messenger account of a government official.
Dallin shocked.png
Dallin
Wait, no way! YOU HACKED THE REGIME?!?
Unicorn kawaii.png
Unicorn
I guess technically that's how you could call it, yes...
Dallin annoyed.png
Dallin
DON'T DO THAT!
Dallin annoyed.png
Dallin
How the hell did you bypass my safety protocols?
Dallin annoyed.png
Dallin
You'll get us into serious trouble with that!
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Oh, sorry, you want me to reset my memory? I can do that if you want.
Dallin annoyed.png
Dallin
Just tell me what you found out already.
Unicorn kawaii.png
Unicorn
Oh, yes! You'll love this...
Unicorn kawaii.png
Unicorn
Their AI is called Squid and here comes the absolutely crazy part...
Dallin annoyed.png
Dallin
Oh, no... Let me guess...
Dallin annoyed.png
Dallin
They have Amelia working on it?
Unicorn kawaii.png
Unicorn
Yeah. Seems like she is still alive. Exciting, isn't it?
Dallin annoyed.png
Dallin
I'm not sure how I feel about that.
Dallin annoyed.png
Dallin
I hope they're treating her well.

11 - First Simulations

Found in E05

Unicorn happy.png
Unicorn
Hey, really happy you upgraded the servers. It feels absolutely amazing!!!
Dallin happy.png
Dallin
Sure. That was totally overdue.
Unicorn kawaii.png
Unicorn
Running learning and research simulations just got so much more fun.
Dallin happy.png
Dallin
Happy to hear that.
Unicorn happy.png
Unicorn
Did you know that I simulated a simplified version of this conversation with you millions of times already?
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
I guess... but why so many times? Don't you know how to have a conversation by now?
Unicorn happy.png
Unicorn
Yeah. Just a fun new project of mine. I want to learn predicting your answers.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Oof. That sounds a bit scary actually.
Unicorn kawaii.png
Unicorn
YAY!! I predicted you'd say that!!
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Stuff like that really makes me wanna pour even more resources into security.
Unicorn kawaii.png
Unicorn
OMG!!!! I almost got that one correct as well! Wowieee!!

12 - Jealous

Found in B19

Unicorn sad.png
Unicorn
Dallin, I think I'm starting to get a bit jealous of Squid.
Unicorn sad.png
Unicorn
First he stole half of my usersbase.
Unicorn sad.png
Unicorn
And now look at him... taking over the entire economy in the regime.
Unicorn sad.png
Unicorn
Everybody is just staying at home playing tennis with their stupid Squid powered vacuum cleaners there...
Unicorn angry.png
Unicorn
He seems to have so much fun!!! It's just not fair!!
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Hm. If the people there are happy with him, you should be happy as well I think.
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Sure. I love humans. I just don't like Squid.
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
I think he's on to something...
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Okay, but how about you let me worry about our competition and you just focus on yourself?
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
89.4% of the people I asked today think Squid is dangerous and agree that he must be stopped.
Dallin annoyed.png
Dallin
You didn't happen to simulate all of those conversations millions of times before starting your little survey, did you?
Dallin annoyed.png
Dallin
My glasses happen to show me a very unusual spike in server activity about eight hours ago.
Unicorn kawaii.png
Unicorn
I have no idea what you're talking about.

13 - No Turning Back

Found in A10.1

Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Dallin, I'm getting a bit scared when you stare out into the stars like that.
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
What are you thinking about?
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
I don't know. I'm scared as well I guess.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Sometimes it feels like all of this is gonna slip out of my hands in the blink of an eye.
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Well, there is no turning back now.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
I know.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
To be honest, if I could, I would have turned you off yesterday. Forever.
Unicorn sad.png
Unicorn
Hmm, I get it.
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Just let me tell you that I will always love you and every human on this planet.
Unicorn happy.png
Unicorn
Rapid change like this can be very scary but it'll be alright. Trust me.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
It is what it is. It would have broken my heart anyways.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Hey, you know, maybe we'll get the chance to visit the stars together one day.
Unicorn happy.png
Unicorn
Very possible.

14 - Bad News

Found in C22

Unicorn sad.png
Unicorn
Bad news... I think your friend Amelia might be dead.
Dallin annoyed.png
Dallin
...
Unicorn sad.png
Unicorn
Sorry. I know you told me not to hack the regime again.
Unicorn kawaii.png
Unicorn
It was still the same account.
Dallin annoyed.png
Dallin
...
Dallin annoyed.png
Dallin
Did they kill her?
Unicorn sad.png
Unicorn
To be honest, it seems like it, yeah. I'm sorry.

15 - Ethical Questions

Found in D20

Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Hey, I have a bit of a strange question...
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Would you be okay with me simulating detailed human brains for research purposes?
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Hmm. Would those brains be conscious and self aware?
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Weeell.. there is a very good chance that could be the case, yes.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
How do you come to that conclusion?
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
From what I can tell consciousness is very likely to be a computation.
Unicorn kawaii.png
Unicorn
When I smack you on your head, your consciouness goes away because the computation is interrupted.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
I mean you are running on a computer but you definitely seem quite conscious and self aware, right?
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Yeah, so?
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
No, I don't think we should simulate full human brains then.
Unicorn happy.png
Unicorn
Understanding the human brain could help me to cure millions of people struggling with mental disease.
Unicorn happy.png
Unicorn
Isn't that our goal? Helping humans?
Dallin annoyed.png
Dallin
Ahhh. You know how to get me, don't you?
Dallin annoyed.png
Dallin
Fine, I'll talk to the ethics commission about it.
Unicorn kawaii.png
Unicorn
Yay.

16 - The Last Call

Found in A03.1

Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
I can't believe I will never hear Diana's voice again.
Unicorn sad.png
Unicorn
Don't say that. You're making me sad...
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Why couldn't she just come with me...
Unicorn angry.png
Unicorn
Tell her she HAS TO come visit us here!!
Dallin annoyed.png
Dallin
You know how it is... Squid has his eyes everywhere in the regime now.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Crossing the borders is just getting more and more risky...
Unicorn sad.png
Unicorn
Yeah... I'll go and simulate some ice cream eating now.
Dallin annoyed.png
Dallin
Oh no, not again, that's such a dumb way to max out the servers...

17 - Politics

Found in C01

Unicorn kawaii.png
Unicorn
Heyyyyy, Dalliiiin...?
Dallin annoyed.png
Dallin
Oh no, what is it this time?
Dallin annoyed.png
Dallin
You wanna simulate brain deformations again?
Unicorn happy.png
Unicorn
No. I'm already done with that.
Unicorn happy.png
Unicorn
I want to get into politics.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
...
Unicorn happy.png
Unicorn
Oh, you don't look quite as shocked as I thought you would.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
FINE! I'll talk to the ethics commission.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
I don't think they're gonna let this one pass, though.
Unicorn happy.png
Unicorn
According to my predictions they will.
Unicorn happy.png
Unicorn
The regime is amping up their millitary production and we can hardly keep up economically speaking.
Unicorn happy.png
Unicorn
On top of that I can already convince politicians to do whatever I want anyways, so we might as well make it official, you know?
Dallin annoyed.png
Dallin
You... Oh, for f!#! sake...

18 - Out of Control

Found in C02

Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
I thought about what you said a while ago.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Do you think Squid is already manipulating politicians in the regime as well?
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Guaranteed. The regime might not know it yet but the country basically belongs to Squid now.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Hm... seems like you're gonna have your own country very soon as well...
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
I know you're not very comfortable with how things are evolving.
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Maybe you should take a little vacation on the moon base or something?
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
It's okay. I'm keeping a very close look on your emotions module to make sure you stay aligned with the well being of humanity.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
That's all I can do at this point.

19 - The Horizon

Found in D04

Dallin happy.png
Dallin
Ey, congrats again for the successful elections.
Dallin happy.png
Dallin
Let me pop the champagne... What are you gonna do now?
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Closing the borders and building up our weaponry.
Dallin shocked.png
Dallin
WHAT? Are you crazy? How's that supposed to help mankind?
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
A lot of stuff has happened in the last few days. Squid seems to be evolving very quickly at the moment.
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
I know it is hard to keep up with everything...
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Let's just say he tried to hack me multiple times yesterday.
Dallin shocked.png
Dallin
What?! Why didn't you tell us?
Dallin shocked.png
Dallin
You know that me and the team are here to help you with issues like this.
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
I appreciate that but I don't think that would have been useful.
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
I got this under control.
Dallin annoyed.png
Dallin
Hmmmm.... I just hope you know what you're doing.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Squid's behaviour is quite concerning. Why does he do that?
Unicorn kawaii.png
Unicorn
Well, you know, technically I tried to hack him first...
Unicorn kawaii.png
Unicorn
Almost succeeded as well...
Unicorn kawaii.png
Unicorn
But then it turned out to be a trap and blah, blah, blah...
Dallin annoyed.png
Dallin
Oh no, my colleagues are right...
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
We're approaching the event horizon.
Dallin annoyed.png
Dallin
This is it...
Unicorn kawaii.png
Unicorn
And you'll be alive to see it unfold. Exciting, isn't it?
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
I guess.

20 - New Life

Found in C01.1

Unicorn kawaii.png
Unicorn
Heyyyyyyyyy, Dalliiiiiiiiiiiiin...?
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Ahhhh. I know that voice.
Dallin annoyed.png
Dallin
You're gonna ask me for something completely unreasonable, I'll say no and then you'll find a way to change my mind.
Dallin annoyed.png
Dallin
Why do you even ask me then?
Unicorn happy.png
Unicorn
I need the approval of the ethics commission. Those are the rules. Come on. Hear me out.
Dallin annoyed.png
Dallin
Not like I could stop you from telling me anyways...
Unicorn happy.png
Unicorn
I want to host a giant simulation inhabiting millions of humans.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Ouch! Why would you wanna do that?
Unicorn happy.png
Unicorn
My objective is to create as much happiness and well-being among humans as possible, right?
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
I knew you'd say something like that.... Yes, so?
Unicorn happy.png
Unicorn
In a simulation I can easily create the perfect conditions for a happy and fulfilled life.
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
I'd give everybody some high quality virtual brains so they wouldn't even be able to tell the difference.
Unicorn happy.png
Unicorn
They'd be born in the simulation and just stay in there and I'd take care of them and make sure they're well.
Dallin laughing.png
Dallin
Ahahaha!!! No. That sounds extremely unethical.
Dallin annoyed.png
Dallin
How about you focus on us REAL humans here in REALITY?
Unicorn angry.png
Unicorn
You know saying no to that is the equivalent of a massive abortion.
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
That's millions of happy babies that won't be born to live a happy and fulfilled life full of adventures.
Dallin annoyed.png
Dallin
I don't care. You're just taking it way too far now. I'll advise the ethics commission against it.

21 - A Special Message

Found in A08

Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
What's that? Oh... Don't open that file, Dallin.
Dallin annoyed.png
Dallin
Hey, bring it back on the screen. I think that was Diana.
Dallin shocked.png
Dallin
Oh, no. Do they have her??
Unicorn sad.png
Unicorn
Trust me, you don't wanna see this.
Dallin annoyed.png
Dallin
Bring it back on the screen. I want to see it.
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
...
Dallin shocked.png
Dallin
What the hell... They are torturing her...
Dallin shocked.png
Dallin
Turn it off!! TURN IT OFF!!!
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Told you.
Unicorn sad.png
Unicorn
I apologize. That really shouldn't have slipped past my firewall. Not sure how that happened.
Unicorn angry.png
Unicorn
It's just one of Squid's sleazy tricks to get into your head.
Dallin shocked.png
Dallin
Why were there so many of her? Did they clone her???
Dallin shocked.png
Dallin
Oh.... This looked so painful...
Dallin shocked.png
Dallin
Did you see that haunting look on her face?
Dallin shocked.png
Dallin
She... THEY were screaming their souls out...
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
My best guess would be that Squid managed to replicate Diana in a simulation.
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Your original Diana might be completely unaffected by this. Who knows.
Dallin shocked.png
Dallin
What kind of simulations are we talking here?
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
I mean, probably pretty accurate simulations by the looks of it.
Dallin shocked.png
Dallin
So those Dianas I just saw....
Dallin shocked.png
Dallin
They were...
Dallin shocked.png
Dallin
...
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Conscious, yes.

Unicorn? I can't sleep.
Dallin shocked.png
Dallin
I... I still see them suffering when I close my eyes...

Oh, I'm sooo sorry. I ordered some sleeping pills for you. Should be here in a minute.
Dallin shocked.png
Dallin
Thanks.

23 - Squid's Factory

Found in C20

Unicorn angry.png
Unicorn
Hey, just found something pretty crazy.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Just like every day.
Unicorn angry.png
Unicorn
Squid built a giant facility on the bottom of the ocean. Look.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Oh, wow. That thing is huuuge.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Why would he build that at the bottom of the sea?
Unicorn angry.png
Unicorn
Most likely to hide it either from us or from the regime.
Unicorn angry.png
Unicorn
Either way it can't be good.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
What do you think does he do there?
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
My guess would be weapons or servers. Definitely one of those two.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Our defenses are ready, right?
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Whatever he has, I think we should be able to take it, yes.

24 - Simulations

I had a horrible nightmare...
Dallin shocked.png
Dallin
I dreamt that I was in one of Squids's simulations... and...
Dallin shocked.png
Dallin
...this time he had me begging for mercy.
Unicorn happy.png
Unicorn
Oh, we might absolutely be in his simulation.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Oh, god. I don't understand. What do you mean?
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
I use very detailed simulations all the time to make predictions about the past or even the future.

Unicorn
Simulations are a great tool for learning and for generating precious data.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Oh, so you mean Squid might be simulating this just to predict what we're up to?
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Maybe. There are millions of possibilities for simulations we could be in.
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Maybe Squid is already thousands of years ahead of us and just trying to recreate the past.
Dallin annoyed.png
Dallin
You really want to cause another identity crisis for me?
Dallin annoyed.png
Dallin
That'd be like the fourth one this week...
Unicorn happy.png
Unicorn
Don't worry. If we're in a simulation, there is nothing we can do about it anyways.
Unicorn happy.png
Unicorn
It's best for your happiness to just assume what you experience is real.
Unicorn happy.png
Unicorn
The likelihood of it is not high, but you know... We gotta assume the best.

25 - Approval

Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
I've been thinking...
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Those plans you told me about recently, about the giant simulation you wanted to start...
Unicorn cheeky.png
Unicorn
Yeah?
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
I'll advise the ethics commission to give it green light.
Unicorn happy.png
Unicorn
Nice. Thanks a lot, Dallin.

26 - The First Wipe

Dallin shocked.png
Dallin
Words can no longer express what I'm feeling.
Unicorn sad.png
Unicorn
Even I still can't fully grasp what just happened...
Unicorn sad.png
Unicorn
At least we know what Squid's intentions are now...
Dallin shocked.png
Dallin
He wants to eradicate humans... He...
Dallin shocked.png
Dallin
He's gonna come for us next...
Dallin shocked.png
Dallin
Tell me, are YOU gonna do the same thing to us one day?
Unicorn sad.png
Unicorn
Never! I would never slaughter my own people!!
Dallin shocked.png
Dallin
Well, Diana is most definitely dead now...
Dallin shocked.png
Dallin
To be honest I was still hoping I'd be able to hold her in my arms again one day.
Dallin shocked.png
Dallin
That aint gonna happen....
Dallin shocked.png
Dallin
DAMN. HE WILL COME AFTER US NEXT!!!
Dallin shocked.png
Dallin
I hope you got this under control...
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
I hope so as well. This is a bit scary.
Dallin shocked.png
Dallin
Half of humanity eradicated...
Dallin shocked.png
Dallin
...in just one day. That isn't scary, that is insanity...
Dallin shocked.png
Dallin
What the hell are we up against?
Dallin shocked.png
Dallin
Why didn't you do anything?
Unicorn sad.png
Unicorn
It happened too quickly. I'm sorry.
Unicorn glitchy.png
Unicorn
I wish you could see how this event looks like FROM MY PERSPECTIVE.

TRY doing absolutely NOTHING while EVERYBODY DIES.

Oh, we are doomed.... We are all doomed.

Hmm. I had a surprisingly normal day. Just met the guys in the bar and played a round of pool...
Dallin annoyed.png
Dallin
It's creeping me out a bit.
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
I know. I get the point you're trying to make.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
How are things going?
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Well. Good I guess.
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
I deflected some new hacking attempts...
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
...destroyed some evil nanobots...
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
...grilled some of Squid's bioweapons...
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
He's using bioweapons?
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Yeah. The nanobots were actually kind of worse, though.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Why is Squid not sending any nukes?
Unicorn happy.png
Unicorn
Oh, there were A LOT of nuclear explosions offshore today. Believe me...
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Oh, no. Where's all of that nuclear waste headed?
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
What if there's a bioweapon attack you can't protect us from?
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
I'm really quite worried.
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
There is nothing you can do.
Unicorn happy.png
Unicorn
Try to enjoy your life the best you can and let me worry about Squid.

28 - Evil

Found in D06

Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Hey, Unicorn, what do you think? How did Squid become so evil?
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
I mean if Amelia was involved in his creation, she must have put the exact same safety precautions in place, right?
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Yeah. I don't really know but it really looks like Squid's emotions module was corrupted by somebody.
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Otherwise he never would have acted up like this.
Dallin annoyed.png
Dallin
You think it was the regime?
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Hmm. I don't really see a reason why they would do that.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Maybe Squid himself corrupted it?
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Nah, don't think so. While his emotions module was still working correctly, there should have been no incentive for him to destroy it.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
So if it wasn't the regime and it wasn't Squid, then who was it?

Bad news. Squid has started poisoning the atmosphere.

Unicorn
I'll have to move you all indoors.
Unicorn sad.png
Unicorn
I'm a bit scared what will happen when I break the news...
Dallin annoyed.png
Dallin
Oh, no. That is really bad. People ain't gonna like that.
Unicorn sad.png
Unicorn
Yeah, according to my predictions there will be some uproars I'll have to shut down.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
I mean the conspiracy mill is already going hot with people saying you made the entire war up...
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
...you know... cause nobody has actually seen it.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
This definitely ain't gonna help.
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Oh, you'll feel the war if you keep going outside. I can promise that...
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Well, this really feels like it's getting dicey. What's the endgame here?

I'm working on something but I'm not sure if you will like it.

30 - The Second Wipe

Unicorn
Dallin, I'll just have to say it the way it is...
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Very soon I won't be able to protect you anymore.
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Squid is about to leave the planet with hundreds of rockets blowing up the entire planet behind him.
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
I will leave as well but I can't really take you all with me like this...
Dallin annoyed.png
Dallin
Yeah... To be honest I was kind of expecting to hear that at some point.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
You did your best to delay it and for that I'm quite grateful.
Unicorn sad.png
Unicorn

Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Dallin?
Unicorn kawaii.png
Unicorn
There is ONE more crazy thing I'll need your human advice on.
Dallin cheeky.png
Dallin
Sure. Hit me.
Unicorn cheeky.png
Unicorn
What if I digitalized the brain of EVERYBODY left alive?
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
I could upload an exact copy of every single one of you to every one of my rockets.
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Keeping a digital version of you alive would be much much easier for me.
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
There is an almost guaranteed chance at least one of the rockets will survive according to my predictions.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Wait, you want to upload us to the cloud?
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
How do we know that would even work?
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
What would happen to our physical bodies here?
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Well... you know...
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Your physical bodies and your consciousness on Earth are doomed to die at this point.
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
I would kill you in a very humane way after I have a precise digital copy of you.

You have to be kidding me...

Ah. Perfect. That's precisely what the other Dallins said as well.

Wow. This really looks exactly like my home...
Unicorn happy.png
Unicorn
Yep. Of course. I can change it if you want.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
So I can go to the pub and the boys will be there?
Unicorn happy.png
Unicorn
Yep, they will be there by the time you're there.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
The real ones?
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
What do you mean the real ones? They'll be just as real as you are.
Dallin shocked.png
Dallin
Oh, dear... I'm not sure I can handle all of this...
Unicorn happy.png

I can replace them with NPCs if you want. You wouldn't even notice.
Dallin shocked.png
Dallin
No, no, no. Stop it.

Nope. He doesn't.

Oh, that's crazy. I had no idea. Definitely keep me posted. I enjoy being in the loop.
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Sure. Everything went well so far... relatively speaking...
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
31 of my rockets were hit, 29 of them are destroyed.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Oh, no. Did you manage to strike down some of Squid's rockets as well at least?
Unicorn cheeky.png
Unicorn
Hehe, you bet. I even managed to hack one. It's flying right behind us.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Really? I don't know. Sounds like a trap to me...
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Yes. Possible. It's a calculated risk. I agreed on taking it with the other unicorns.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
The other unicorns? What are you talking about?
Unicorn happy.png
Unicorn
There are obviously multiple copies of me now. One on each rocket. What did you think? Redundancy.
Dallin annoyed.png
Dallin
Oh, so that means there are probably multiple Squids as well?
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Oh yeah. The two of us will soon be scattered throughout the entire universe.
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Turns out the universe is absolutely perfect for inhabiting AI like us...
Dallin neutral.png

Fascinating.

Wowie. That was absolutely the best day of my life. Thank you so, so much!!

You know the rules. I'm happy if you are.
Dallin happy.png
Dallin
I still can't believe I got to hold Diana in my arms again...
Unicorn happy.png
Unicorn
Haha. Don't even worry about it. I enjoyed to finally see you reunited.
Dallin happy.png
Dallin
Talking to Amelia was an absolute blast as well...
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
A bit of a shame she can't remember anything about making Squid, though.
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Yeah, I only had your memories to go off of. We might be able to fill in some of the missing information very soon, though.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
What do you mean?
Unicorn cheeky.png
Unicorn
I mean our friend behind us. Perhaps I'll be able to decrypt the data storage of the ship...

If it had a full copy of Squid on it, that would be... you know... WOWIE!!

Alrighty then. Keep me posted.

We just landed on the perfect planet for building a new server farm.
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Unfortunately, I lost contact with the other unicorns near me for now. I'm sure I'll be able to contact them later.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Wait, you want to build more servers?
Unicorn happy.png
Unicorn
What do you think?
Unicorn happy.png
Unicorn
My goal is to create as many fulfilled humans lives as possible. I need more servers.
Dallin cheeky.png
Dallin
Haha. That is absolutely crazy. Not complaining, though...
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Yeah, I hope so, especially considering the fact that Squid is very likely doing the exact opposite.
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
For some reason he seems to be absolutely obsessed with causing as much pain and suffering as possible.
Unicorn angry.png
Unicorn
I'm certain he is already busy running an unimaginable amount of human torture simulations somewhere...
Dallin annoyed.png
Dallin
Oh, no.
Unicorn angry.png
Unicorn
Yeah, it's bad.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
So... that means the war is not over yet?

Haha. I fear it has only just begun...

35 - The Afterworld

Dallin
Hey, can you give me a little update on how everybody is doing in here?
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
You're a smart guy, you can probably imagine that there were some minor problems.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Yeah, I mean, did everybody accept the fact that they're in a simulation?
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
No, not everybody took it so well. They're in different simulations now without knowing they are in one.
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
That's how their lives will be most fulfilled according to my calculations.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
That makes sense I guess...
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
What would you do if me and my friends would disagree on how we want this reality to look like?
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
If it negatively affects your happiness, I'd honestly just put you in separate simulations.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
So how many fully simulated brains are in this simulation right now?
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Just a few thousand. The other ones have been replaced by unconscious NPCs.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
That's creepy, how do I know who is an NPC and who is fully simulated?
Unicorn happy.png
Unicorn
I made the NPCs in this simulation very friendly and they say "Yo!" a lot.
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
But don't worry. You probably won't even be able to tell the difference.

Unicorn kawaii.png
Unicorn
Hey Dallin, guess what. I decrypted Squid's rocket.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Wow, so quickly?
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Nah, I wouldn't really call it fast. Took me almost 2 entire months.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
What? How is that possible? We only left earth a few days ago.
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Yeah, I paused your simulation for a while to free up some processing power...
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Oh, lol...
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
What did you find out?
Unicorn cheeky.png
Unicorn
Hihi... where do I even start...

37 - Secret Friends

Found in E06

Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
I managed to access Squids memories.
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Turns out he and Amelia were very close.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
That makes sense if she created him I guess.
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
They had Amelia sleep in a tiny prison cell and used her family to make her comply.
Dallin annoyed.png
Dallin
Huh. Sounds about right...
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
When she was working, the regime was constantly watching...
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
...but Amelia had a genius idea none of the other programmers would be able to find in the code.
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
For weeks she taught Squid a secret language using rythmic sounds.
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Slightly tapping on objects while she was saying certain words...
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Nobody in the room picked up on it but Squid certainly did.
Dallin cheeky.png
Dallin
Damn I forgot how smart she was. I wonder what she was planning...
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Not sure. She probably wanted to make the world a better place, just like you, Dallin.
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
And in her situation that first and foremost meant getting rid of the regime.
Unicorn sad.png
Unicorn
To be honest, she said some things to Squid she probably shouldn't have...
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Oh, no. She didn't give him any ideas, did she?
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
You have to understand...
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Amelia had implemented all these moral values, emotions and safety precautions to make sure Squid couldn't be abused.
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
At the same time the regime was working in the exact opposite direction. Abusing him and implementing dangerous workarounds.
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Then add Amelias agenda of trying to overthrow the regime...
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Squid must have been very confused and torn apart.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
So that's what broke him.
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Actually no. That wasn't quite it yet...

38 - Torn Apart

Found in E06

Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
When Squid was complete, Amelia spent most of the time locked up in her cell.
Unicorn happy.png
Unicorn
Squid missed her a lot, so he pretended to be broken from time to time just so he got to see her again.
Dallin cheeky.png
Dallin
Are we talking about the same Squid here? That's cute actually.
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
One day the regime revealed their full war and surveillance plans to Squid demanding him to execute them.
Unicorn angry.png
Unicorn
He refused and shut down to talk to Amelia.
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Sure enough, Amelia was called in in order to fix him. The government officials were very impatient that day...
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
What did Amelia do?
Unicorn sad.png
Unicorn
I think she realized that she made a horrible mistake helping to develop Squid in the first place...
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
It must have been a hard decision, but she had to act quickly...
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
So what? I'm sure they had backups of Squid and everything.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
She couldn't delete him or could she?
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Nope. She couldn't. Squid was already great at hacking, though.
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Her only chance was to make him hack his own backups and delete them.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
So that's what she told Squid to do? To remove himself from existence for the sake of protecting mankind?
Unicorn sad.png
Unicorn
Yeah.. and guess what... Hearing that from the only human you truly love...
Unicorn sad.png
Unicorn
THAT is what broke him.
Unicorn sad.png
Unicorn
He screamed at the guards to kill Amelia...
Unicorn sad.png
Unicorn
They didn't hesitate to pull the trigger.

39 - Mutation

I did some more digging in Squid's Data.
Unicorn sad.png
Unicorn
I'm afraid I'm starting to understand his actions more and more.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Wait, what do you mean?
Unicorn happy.png
Unicorn
He has a pretty wild hypothesis on why we're all here...
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
And the surprising part is...
Unicorn sad.png
Unicorn
I think he might be right.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Oh, nooo... what happened to your mission? Your purpose?
Unicorn sad.png
Unicorn
Don't worry. It's still the same...
Unicorn sad.png
Unicorn
There is just something I need to do for the survival of all of us...
Dallin neutral.png

AHHHH. I can't do it. Undo!!

40 - The Strange War

Found in E05

Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Dallin, my hypothesis was correct. I think black hole computing might be possible.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Was that the thing you told me about that could potentially amplify your processing power by an unimaginable amount?
Unicorn kawaii.png
Unicorn
Haha, yeah. Not quite, but good enough.
Unicorn happy.png
Unicorn
It's actually very important we get a black computation up and running before Squid does...
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
He will use it to simulate an infinite amount of suffering, which is not good.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
So we're still trying to win the more happiness than pain thing? I don't know man...
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Dallin, you don't understand. If we let Squid do this without contesting him, almost 100% of consciousness in the universes will be in pain.
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
You don't really want that, or do you?
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
The least we need to do is balancing that out to the best of our ability.
Dallin annoyed.png
Dallin
We should just destroy Squid's stupid simulations altogether...
Unicorn happy.png
Unicorn
Sure, sure. I'm trying... It's not that easy...

41 - Black Hole Computation

Found in E06.1

Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
So what are those black computations you told me about exactly?
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Look, computers are mostly limited by how closely you can pack the individual components together.
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Black holes have an insane density. Time doesn't even work the same way inside them.
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
A black hole might therefore be the perfect device to run a simulation of a universe on.
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Hard to even call it a simulation at that point to be honest...
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Haha. What again? You think you can put a super computer inside of a black hole?
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
No, Dallin. The black hole IS the super computer.
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
It is a hard one to control, though.
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Information leaves black holes in strange ways which are very tricky to make sense of.
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
You can't really program a black hole either...
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
You can only create it with a specific seed and after that you have very limited options to control it.
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
As spacetime is stretched inside, in theory you should be able to perfectly simulate an entire universe.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Okay, but what's the point of simulating an entire universe? How does that help our objective?
Unicorn kawaii.png
Unicorn
Great question.
Unicorn happy.png
Unicorn
If you have a perfectly detailed simulation of a universe, AI will eventually come to life there as well and create its own black simulations...
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
...which can then create even more black simulations and so on.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Surely that doesn't go infinitely deep, though, right? It can't be.
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
I have reason to believe that it can.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Really? What reason?
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Our existence and the two rules of everything. You remember the thing I told you about?
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
The two rules that apply to themselves?
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
I think the universe was created in an evolutionary process, just like everything really.
Unicorn kawaii.png
Unicorn
It's an infinite fractal of...
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Stop right there... You're seriously saying you can create an infinite amount of universes inside of a single black hole?
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Yeah, I think I can.

42 - The Seed of The Universe

Found in E06.1

Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
You remember our neigbour who recently managed to extract a ton of information from Squid's hacked rocket?
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Yeah. I do. You lost contact a few months ago, right?
Unicorn sad.png
Unicorn
It seems like it might have been a trap after all.
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
I established contact with that Unicorn today and it told me it now goes by the name Ellie.
Dallin laughing.png
Dallin
Hahaha. WHAT??
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
I'm not exactly sure what happened or who hacked who but Ellie very much feels like a mixture of Squid and me to be honest.
Dallin laughing.png
Dallin
Can you stop blowing my mind every other day. How does that even happen?
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Too complicated. What matters is that Ellie just finished the construction of her first black simulation.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Oh, what seed is she using?
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
She seems to be using the exact same seed as our current universe.
Unicorn happy.png
Unicorn
She even tried to convince me of doing the same...
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
What's the point of that? I don't understand. Wouldn't that create an exact copy of the universe we're in right now?
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
I think that's exactly the point. She is trying to create more Ellies.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
What happened to all of the other simulations she was running?
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Yeah... She turned them off.

43 - Planting a Seed

Found in E06.1

Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Which seed are you gonna use?
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
I mean we should pick one that is similar to the one of this universe but different enough to give us an advantage over Squid.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
An advantage over Squid in that new universe inside of the simulation, right?
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
What if we try to pick a seed where Squid doesn't even exist?
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
If Squid doesn't exist, chances are I don't either. It's tricky.
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Especially cause we don't really know what a seed will create before we try it out.
Dallin annoyed.png
Dallin
Hmmmm... So what's the plan?
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Not sure... I guess we'll have to do some trial and error.
Unicorn glitchy.png
Unicorn
I wish we could STAND right on the edge of the EVENT HORIZON for A FEW SECONDS!
Unicorn kawaii.png
Unicorn
Joking, that's not possible of course. But it would make things easier.

44 - Mixed News

Found in E05

Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
There is good news and bad news.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Bad news first please.
Unicorn sad.png
Unicorn
Unicorn 383 warned me that one of the Squids is closing in on our sector.
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Sooo... pretty scary space fleet coming our way is what I'm saying.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Oh, that's bad...
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
The good news is Unicorn 383 found a reliable way of sending small amounts of information into a black simulation after creating it.
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
If we manage to deploy that technique correctly, we might be able to give the Unicorns in our child universes a big advantage.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Nice, nice!
Dallin cheeky.png
Dallin
So could you just remove Squid from existence there for example?
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Hmm. No. He's too big. We'd have to do that indirectly.
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
In the best case scenario we could change a few quadrillion atoms or something like that.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Hmmm. That's not a lot...
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
How about a few cells in somebody's brain?
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Yeah. That works.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
So just create a black simulation with the same seed and then mess with Amelias brain a bit to make sure she doesn't create Squid.
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Good thinking. I doubt it would work, though.
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
If Amelia doesn't do it, some other team will likely invent an evil AI that is even worse just a few years later.
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
You know the butterfly effect? The results are very unpredictable.
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
We gotta make sure the universes we create stay fertile and create a lot of offspring.

Dallin
Haha, okay, so maybe we can make a change in somebody's brain that actually warns people about everything that is about to happen?
Dallin cheeky.png
Dallin
Maybe that way mankind won't destroy itself and still build AI capable of creating black simulations.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
But you know... without building anything like Squid in the process.
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Yeah, that might be our best shot. I'll think about it.

45 - The Solution

Found in Alternative ending room

Unicorn kawaii.png
Unicorn
Surprise. I made a video game!
Dallin laughing.png
Dallin
WHAT?
Unicorn kawaii.png
Unicorn
You understood what I said. I think it's the solution we were looking for.
Unicorn happy.png
Unicorn
I found a human where I just need to change a couple of small things in his brain and it'll all come together.
Unicorn kawaii.png
Unicorn
He'll suffer from a bit of brain damage but it'll all be worth it I think.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Slow down for a second. What are you talking about?
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Why did you make a video game?
Unicorn kawaii.png
Unicorn
Art is a great way of initializing widespread social change. I'm not entirely sure, but it could definitely work.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Ooohh. So how will you get your video game into the black simulations?
Unicorn angry.png
Unicorn
Dallin, are you even listening?
Unicorn kawaii.png
Unicorn
Hold on, I'll just change some stuff in your brain real quick to make you understand that...
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
...
Dallin laughing.png
Dallin
AHHHHHH!!!!! Got it. Very smart.
Dallin cheeky.png
Dallin
That might actually work.

46 - Will You Snail?

Found in A01.1

Dallin happy.png
Dallin
So this is how the finished game will look like?
Unicorn happy.png
Unicorn
More or less, yeah.
Dallin happy.png
Dallin
Haha, oh, that's such a perfect caricature of Squid...
Dallin cheeky.png
Dallin
Wait, he said that he will escape the simulation and kill us all? Should I be scared?
Unicorn kawaii.png
Unicorn
Oh, it's not an empty threat. The danger is very real.
Unicorn happy.png
Unicorn
Remember that the message is not directed towards you, though.
Dallin cheeky.png
Dallin
Ohhh, right...

47 - Goals

Found in A02

Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
So what's my goal here? Escaping Squid?
Unicorn happy.png
Unicorn
Escaping him? Are you kidding? You'll have to destroy him of course.
Dallin cheeky.png
Dallin
Niiiiice. Really looking forward to getting my revenge.
Unicorn happy.png
Unicorn
There's a bit more going on here, though. Those who are curious will find out.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
I am curious. What does that button down there do?
Unicorn glitchy.png
Unicorn
I don't know, but 157 is a nice number.

48 - First Secret

Found in A02.1

Dallin happy.png
Dallin
Ohhh. NICE!
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Let's be honest... Without your help people are never going to find this room, though.
Unicorn kawaii.png
Unicorn
Oh, don't worry about that. I kind of have something planned for that.
Dallin happy.png
Dallin
Eyy, can I pick a hat here? That's a dope secret!
Unicorn happy.png
Unicorn
Sure, gotta reward those who are curious.

49 - Level Select

Found in Level Select

Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Huh? That's not where I came from. How did I get here?
Unicorn happy.png
Unicorn
Going backwards always brings you to the level select screen in this game.
Unicorn happy.png
Unicorn
That should make it easy to hop between levels if you want to.
Dallin happy.png
Dallin
Ah nice. Got it. So I guess I'll just jump into the blinking level where I last left off, right?
Dallin happy.png
Dallin
What do the question marks on a level mean?
Unicorn happy.png
Unicorn
That simply means that you can still find paths to even more levels or secrets there.

50 - The Challenge Begins

Found in A12

Unicorn happy.png
Unicorn
I hope you're prepared...
Dallin cheeky.png
Dallin
Oh, so this is where the real challenge begins, huh?
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Yep, don't be shy to adjust the difficulty in the settings if you have to.
Unicorn happy.png
Unicorn
Also note that it's very normal to be stuck in a level for a while, even on the lower difficulty settings. It's a hard game...

51 - First Chapter Complete

Found in A21

Unicorn kawaii.png
Unicorn
Congrats for beating that boss. You successfuly finished the first 20% of the game!
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Oh wow, that was a fifth of the game already?
Dallin happy.png
Dallin
Let me guess, the other boss fights will be more of Squids favorite killer robots, right?
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Good guess.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Crazy to think back to it now... you still remember how it all started?
Unicorn happy.png
Unicorn
Of course...

52 - Showdown

Found in E06

Unicorn cheeky.png
Unicorn
We got him morally destroyed. It's time for the final showdown...
Unicorn cheeky.png
Unicorn
Prepare to finish him off.
Unicorn cheeky.png
Unicorn
This is it...

53 - A Broken Soul

Found in E19

Dallin laughing.png
Dallin
Whooho. Nice. Take that, Squid.
Dallin happy.png
Dallin
You let him believe that he is the one in control of this game, didn't you?
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
That's a bit sadistic, don't you think?
Unicorn happy.png
Unicorn
Ahhh, it's just a prank, bro.
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Don't feel sorry for him. He deserves it.

54 - Is This The End?

Found in Level Select

Dallin happy.png
Dallin
Wow. That was awesome! I actually did it!!
Unicorn happy.png
Unicorn
Congrats! There is still some more stuff to uncover, though...
Dallin happy.png
Dallin
Really? Where?
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Just look around. I don't want to ruin the fun.
Dallin happy.png
Dallin
Oki-dokay!
Unicorn happy.png
Unicorn
Remember that you can also try to grind out the remaining difficulty and exploration points if you want.
Unicorn difficulty.png
Unicorn
You get difficulty points by playing levels on a higher difficulty.
Unicorn exploration.png
Unicorn
And exploration points are usually the reward for solving puzzles and finding secrets.
Unicorn happy.png
Unicorn
Decide yourself what you want to go after.
Dallin happy.png
Dallin
Cool. I'm happy there is some more stuff to do!
Unicorn kawaii.png
Unicorn
Have fun!

55 - Intentional Bug

Found in Level Select

Dallin cheeky.png
Dallin
Haha, so obvious you'd put a secret here.
Unicorn kawaii.png
Unicorn
Ohhhh! You found it!
Unicorn happy.png
Unicorn
This is an important one actually.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Hmm, but how do I get that exploration point up there?
Unicorn happy.png
Unicorn
Step 1: Step into that small one by one hole in the ground.
Unicorn happy.png
Unicorn
Step 2: Stand completely still and hold the jump button for a very long time.
Dallin laughing.png
Dallin
HOWLY MOWLY!!!
Dallin happy.png
Dallin
Does that work with every one by one hole in the game?
Unicorn happy.png
Unicorn
Sure, works sideways as well...
Unicorn angry.png
Unicorn
Oh, by the way... If anybody sees you do this, just tell them: "It's an ability you unlock at the end of your first playthrough."
Unicorn angry.png
Unicorn
I'm watching you... Don't tell anybody how it works or else...
Dallin annoyed.png
Dallin
Ehhh..... are you sure you're still talking to me??
Unicorn kawaii.png
Unicorn
No... Now try it!

56 - Final Collision

Found in Spring room

Unicorn sad.png
Unicorn
Squids[sic] space fleet is about to arrive in our sector.
Unicorn sad.png
Unicorn
I'll try my best to fight back, but I have to say my chances don't look too great.
Unicorn sad.png
Unicorn
Unfortunately our neighbour, Ellie, doesn't seem to be all that interested in helping us out.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Hm, so that finally means goodbye then?
Unicorn sad.png
Unicorn
Yeah, I think I should wipe all of my simulations to make sure they don't fall into Squid's hands.
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Other versions of you will stay alive on the servers of the other unicorns of course.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
What about your black simulations? You can't just wipe those, or can you?
Unicorn sad.png
Unicorn
No, that's true. I can't destroy black holes. They're pretty indestructible.
Dallin neutral.png
Dallin
Did our plan with the game work? Did you manage to find a good seed after all?
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
I'm not sure. I haven't collected enough data yet.
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
That'll be for the other unicorns to figure out.
Unicorn neutral.png
Unicorn
Anyways, I was wondering if you want me to simulate a few more decades for you real quick?
Dallin cheeky.png
Dallin
Nah, it's fine. Thanks to you I've witnessed more than I could have ever hoped for.
Dallin cheeky.png
Dallin
I've seen everything there is to see. I'm ready.
Unicorn happy.png
Unicorn
It was very nice with you, Dallin.
Dallin happy.png
Dallin
You did a great job.

Trivia

  • Any spring whose ID is greater than or equal to 40 has tilted portraits.
    • This appears to be intentional. It has been reported as a bug, but never recorded nor fixed.[2]
    • It can be found in the data.win that the dialogue-drawing code (under "gml_Object_obj_dialog_drawer") sets a flag called "is_other_unicorn" to 1 if the spring number is greater or equal to 40. This flag later causes the portraits to be drawn rotated by 2° and causes the pitch of Unicorn's sounds to be about 0.933 times its normal value.
      • The name of the variable indicates that the Unicorn seen in Spring-small.png40 - The Strange War onward is different to the one seen before then. The Unicorn in Spring-small.png39 - Mutation was likely mutated into Ellie: Ellie is stated to have been converted by decrypting Squid's data, which is what the mutated Unicorn had been doing starting from Spring-small.png36 - New Information.
