<li>Ahaha I'm hilarious with titles /shot Mad Father spoilers everywhere Something pretty simple for RP-blog (which also seems to be some sort of ask blog as well despite the fact I'm SLOW) [link]
I can't understand why people have problem with true ending; I think it's amazing (or maybe I'm just protective over it due the fact I RP as adult Aya). ANYWAY Mad Father is a great game, I really recommend it!!
Also, I have done some other MF-fanart as well [link]
Nothing has been said for sure, although it has been heavily implied.
However, if you want to have anything headcanon based: some fans (including me!) seem to think that while Aya grew up to be very similar to her father, Aya's reasoning for doing what she does is entirely different. Instead of being "mad" like her father was, Aya believes putting people into "eternal sleep" is a way to help them. After all, when she was a kiddo and in the house haunted by her mother's curse, Aya helped all those cursed corpses to afterlife (thus the belief of thinking death means end of suffering)!
But, like I said, it's heavily headcanon-based and therefore can't be taken as the canon truth.
I agree! I got the true ending in my first try but I found Maria's diary by accident of sort, haha
Same here :'D I suspected what would happen the very moment I saw that forest but I was surprised to actually realize I was right. It's just... uhh... kinda hard to understand why Aya would become like that until you play it the 2nd time and read the diary entries (they appear once you have cleared the game once - with true ending, I suppose). It still leaves a lot questions, though.
I never really played the game again sadly, because my laptop spazzed and such, and deleted all my files. So I didnt get to play it for awhile, and I still need to download it....
Ive heard of the diaries from the wiki, but i havnt read them myself. Ive heard they are really creepy and pput Aya in a different light, showing that she kind of turned out like her father. I personally think that because she put all those spirits to rest by basically killing them, she thought killing just ended pain, which is why she does what she oes in the future.
They indeed are! There is also one about Aya's parent's and I think it's pretty cool. It gives them both more character. And true, the diary entries show that Aya was - even before the events of the game - not quite all right in her head. But then again, how could she be blamed? Especially her mother read her all sort of weird stories about burning, killing, death and stuff + she gave her the rat which probably ended its life in the small hands of Aya. Her father was proud first as well but I think then he started to notice it would make Aya "dirty" and he started to come up with this doll-plan. Now that I think about it, I'd actually say Aya's mother was the maddest one
It's a good game. I really like how she looks when she's older. I don't know why people hate the ending. Twist endings will happen once in a while in these games and that's okay. Like the ending for Witch's House.
Most people dislike it because Aya didn't end up with Dio (even though it's pretty impossible, seen Dio was dead already and he had to disappear with the curse) and some because the don't find it "good" ending (for a reason or another). However, if you ask me, that is a good ending. Aya and Maria are still alive and it seems like they're doing well C''8 And yeah, it's not a good horror game without even a tiny twist in the end ~
Okay that was dumb. Dio is dead. How is Aya suppose get with him if he's a ghost? And I agree with you. The ending was a good ending. Even if Aya is a little... different she's at least alive like you said.
Yeah, but you know the shippers c': I have nothing against the ship but there is no way it could actually work (if it's not some sort of AU) out. If you play the game the 2nd time, you'll find some diary entries around the house. They hint that Aya's career choice wasn't actually all that surprising. She had had her father's curiosity even before the events of the game.
I agree! While it has many silly parts (aka parts where I laughed even though I should have) it's still really enjoyable, especially if you know you're into... mad scientist and stuff (I have had a weird passion for stories like that since I was child so of course I had to try out this one) :'D I like to think that Aya is not quite like her father. While it seemed like Alfred did his experiments for pleasure and curiousity, I feel like Aya does so (mostly) because she wants to help (but obviously in a really twisted way).
She helped out her father's subjects in the house back then, right? And whenever she helped them they eventually disappeared and went to afterlife (or whatever you want to call that)- she ended their suffering. I think it's not too far fetched to think Aya believes she helps people by "ending their suffering" - putting them to eternal sleep.
But yeah the ending leaves a lot open so it's pretty much up to everyone how they see that.
Yeah xD I dunno why I always laugh at the parts when the Aya screams hahaha :'D (I've always been a scardy cat,but I do enjoy those type of games once in a while :'D) I think you're right o.o ...still,it creeps me out hahahaha
Hmmmm,very very true my dear friend uvu What was the blonde boy called? The one that doesn't have an eye?;A; I love him so much,at the part where he's burning down the mansion,and he kisses aya's forehead...I have that as my ipod's cover :'DDD
Same, and I died a lot in the end's chasing-part so I had to hear her screaming quite often C'8 But despite the voice-acting being a bit... silly at times, I enjoyed the fact there were some sounds. Especially in the end, Alfred's creepy calling was something I didn't expect at all and got startled a bit when he started to speak.
He actually didn't have any name but the translator gave him name "Dio" (since she knew fandom would love him and without a name things could get problematic). I think he is really cute u//v//u I liked the eyeless girl better but all the corpse-people were cute on their own ways!!
Sanos muuta :__D Ei yllä mielestäni TWH'n tasolle, mutta tykkäsin kyllä tosi paljon! Tosin osana voi olla se, että koko tuo pelin hullutiedemies-juonikokonaisuus kiehtoi minua. Olen lapsesta asti kokenut sellaiseen suurta viehätystä ´v`''
