NOTE: If you get black screen and the game never loads chances are you have Adblock Plus browser extension. Try disabling it. If that doesn't help try deleting your cookies (make sure this won't upset you :P). If that doesn't help, I guess the server where this game is hosted is temporarily down or we're updating the game.

This commentary isn't a lie. Promise.

Things may not be what they seem to be.

Journey through 30 levels and escape from the cage.

There are 2 real endings and 1 fake.
To get the best ending (2/2) you don't have to replay the whole game.

Game saves your progress, but make sure you don't hit 'Restart' accidentally.

This is a really good, entertaining game that messes with your expectations at every turn.
Personal interpretation of the story is that "the cage" is a metaphor for some kind of psychological problem (depression, anxiety, addiction, etc.) that the protagonist is suffering from and is "trapped" by. The narrator represents the part of the protagonist that keeps lying to themself, telling themself that this is the only option they have, that there's no way to escape and they'll only get hurt if they try to change anything, all the while only hurting themself even more. Meanwhile the character we play as represents the part of the protagonist that wants to get better and move on with their life. The bad ending is where the main character is overcome by their problem and never recovers, while the good ending is where the main character defeats their inner demons and takes back control of their life.
