*slight spoilers*

Did someone get the 'good' ending?
I managed to find 4 white heads, but lost my own head in the process :( are there more than 4?

I found 5 - lost my head by being careless, still only managed the 2 endings.

The 5th one is just not fair - its a ladder with NO PART OF IT SHOWING. Blue grass area, only found it by accidentally pressing down in the right spot, lol.

It's hard to see, but rungs should be visible along that tree.

Ok, 5th one with my own head attached did the trick. Got 3rd ending. Are there any more?

You ought to post a walkthrough on youtube. I'm having trouble finding them all.

Most of them are not hard. Just try running/crawling into and jumping into every dead end at the left & right sides of screens. One in the middle is relatively visible.

It's just the 5th one that I mentioned above and which I found by accident.... That one does not belong unless I missed some clue.

I managed to get to the purple area twice (with 5 heads + my own) just for the creature to get me there >_< really frustrating...

I haven't made it all the way through, nor have I found all of the heads.

Haven't had much time to play it. I've only really found 1 I think.

Great little game. Really like the stripped down aesthetic with no words or story, so it forces everything to have more of a symbolic edge. Still trying to understand the ending [or one of them apparently], but great use of graphics and sound FX. Only complaint would be the size, and wanting it to have a bit more length

does the game seriously end after fixing the bridge and falling into the cave where the static builds until you wake in a bed with the monster in the next room? no explanation or anything?
Your use of the "monster" is shocking, first 2 or 3 times i got a scare, but honestly, having it pop up nearly every 20 seconds completely spoils the suspense and ruins the game. Good try but overall im just glad i never paid more than £1.99.

That's one of the endings. There are a few as well as some secret rooms. I'm still discovering them all.

I think it'd be really cool if the author (in a month or so of course to give us all time to find the secrets and such) posted osmething showing how to get them. A playthrough or somesuch.
