After eleven months, I've finally finished my parody of Nancy Drew: The Deadly Device.
I'm a little confused, as to the end of the game. The very last thing we see is [Culprit] getting zapped by the Tesla coil. I like the irony of the murder weapon hurting the murderer, but I have to wonder what happened after that.
I mean, if you think about it, Nancy is still trapped in a room with an active Tesla coil. And now that [Culprit] is unconscious, there's no one who can go to the control room and deactivate the Tesla coil. How did Nancy get out of that situation? Did the culprit wake up, crawl back to the control room, then turn off the Tesla coil?
I guess it's possible that the Tesla coil can be activated and deactivated remotely. If so, why didn't [Culprit] use this feature when killing Niko? That way, [Culprit] wouldn't have left behind incriminating video footage or the ID card record. Maybe [Culprit] wanted to be there to witness the death firsthand, or maybe it only works when deactivating the coil. But if that's true, why didn't someone use this feature earlier, during the two "turn off the switches before the grid goes critical" puzzles? Maybe "the grid" refers to a different deadly device.
