Oracle Members + the Janitor

Post by szemi » Sat May 20, 2017 8:27

Hello there!
I have an important question:

When Keen saves the 8 oracle members, what about the oracle janitor? Is he saved or what (I mean in the end of the game when you complete it)? Because in the ending he is not mentioned and you don't even have to save him as he is in the Pyramid of the Forbidden.

Tell me.
Yeah, piece of cake!

An interesting question. I suppose if you decide not to save him, he stays in the Pyramid of the Forbidden. But he looks almost (well, pretty much exactly) the same as the Oracle Members, so I assume he's also immortal. It's not like he'll starve or anything.
I'm sure he would've eventually escaped on his own. For that matter I'm sure all of them would, but Keen was kind of in a hurry, what with the galaxy being in imminent danger and all.

This, especially since he was literally standing next to the exit.

You could also make a single-panel comic where he just says: "Guys! I escaped the Pyramid of the Forbidden..."

"on bare foot."

But who's going to foot the bill for that?

(The Oracle Janitor should clearly be named Bill, in light of that pun.)

Keen footed the Bill(y Blaze).
