So we played Detroit: Become Human. It’s a decent interactive experience, though it’s still not much of a game. But that’s pretty much the way “auteur” David Cage works.

He’s also renowned for being influenced by the medium he’s so enamoured in recreating in games: film. Though to his credit, he has done a lot of research in civil rights movement history and then putting it in an android context, much less in Detroit: Become Human’s 2038 timeline of America where this sort of tech advancement may happen.

Of course, if you play it once, that’s your story. Want to see the outcome for the rest of the game, without the need of playing it? Look no further than the magic of YouTube and Kakuchopurei’s due diligence in gathering them all in one convenient location.

That’s what your games were built for, David Cage. Be proud.

Since we’re dealing with sensitive material here, there are a ton of spoilers featuring trigger moments. So tread lightly. Also, this one-page stop will be periodically updated since the game just came out and all.

Android Hell

Remember that scene about android hell in our review? Here it is in all of its creepy glory. FYI I ripped out the core of the first near-dead woman android in my first playthrough. That speaks a lot about me than anything.

Hank Anderson Gets Drunk

Bonus points to Clancy Brown for selling the grizzled detective persona for this game. Extra bonus points for the introduction of the loveable Saint Bernard Sumo.

The Detroit Freedom March Of 2038

Markus and his Jericho group of freedom fighters march out in public to protest. Police come down to shoot and wreck havoc. Protip: If you don’t run away, you get gunned down and will have a Markus-less game.

On the flip-side, you can beat the s*** out of the cops…

…or just hightail it from here. Running away is the only way to get the “Survivor” achievement.

How Detroit: Become Human Ends

Here’s the good ending where everyone survives. Basically, you need to make sure the public’s perception of androids is neutral to peaceful. Markus needs to do a peace march for the Battle of Detroit segment, especially if you want to keep Kara, Alice, and Luther alive. Trust me on this: the trigger point is at the Canadian immigration border.

Connor needs to be friends with Hank and also turn deviant, which will lead to the path where he joins Markus’ cause and head to CyberLife to turn inactive androids to their cause. You’ll know you’ve done well when Hank saves you during the CyberLife infiltration.

David Cage’s plot comes full circle: androids are good, humans are bad and need reprimanding, they’re the real monsters and so forth. Still, it’s worth a watch (via PowerPyx)
