the ending made my little sister cry, because according to her it was sad. She then explained it to me (I only solve the puzzle, don't care about the story) and it sounded bonkos

I have to agee with 123. The story was fine up untill the end and then the story writers must have thought that they could make the story terrible because it was a game. I actually wanted to skip the last cutscenes as they were rediculous.

Finished it today. Really, the story is implausible nonsense. Towards the end we were permanently rolling our eyes at the events and dialog.
