I just want to point out that Chris (of all people!) is responsible for the title of today’s episode.
“These people really don’t know what they’re doing.”
Like Rutskarn said, this part of the game is shockingly amateurish. The concept of exploring someone’s brain for exposition is good, but just about every part of it is wrong, broken, or executed poorly. It’s over-written, making the dialog ponderous. The timeline doesn’t make sense because Kellogg magically didn’t age for 60 years. It doesn’t fill in any other details of the world, just Kellogg. Kellogg calls two different characters “Old Man”, which is flagrant writer cheating to protect an obvious twist through obfuscation. Same goes for the idea of having Kellogg take care of robo-Shaun to act as “bait” for your character.
It’s boring and frustrating when you play through it, and then frustrating and nonsensical when viewed in retrospect.

How do you know the rules of the game are what the game claims? More importantly, how do the DEVELOPERS know?
