Every one who has played the games of the series: On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness
has noticed the mentioning of "Gods".
These are not actual Gods (apparently), but are a mere title, referred by the protagonists (Example: At the beginning of OtR-SPoD:3, Gabriel mentions killing "Gods" a routine task in their line of work).
However, the main mentioning of these "Gods" is included in The Quartet for the Dusk of Man
, which is being quoted at the start of each game. Assuming the poem is based on the game/The game is based (kind of) on the poem, there are 4 Gods which "rule" New Arcadia (According to the poem, there were 8 gods once, and apparently they died battling among themselves). Analyzing these Gods, which are slain each in every episode, may grant us a
slight divination to what God will be slain next.
The first God which was slain was Yom Kippour, the "God of Silence"
The second God who met his demise was that giant, annoying Fruit F***er, the "God of Gears".
The third slain God is still unknown to me (I haven't finished the game yet), but just from the first 2 we can deduce something:All of the Gods are related to the environment of New Arcadia!
It might sound totally obvious at first, but if you give it another thought, you'll get it.
Yom Kippour was a mime, and mimes are very common in all three games, which one can assume they were always a part of the environment in New Arcadia.
The Giant Fruit F***er was made from gears, which are common in New Arcadia in all three games, thus assuming they were also a part of the environment in the city before the series took place.
Those facts made me reach an assumption, that the Third/Fourth remaining Gods are related either to "Hoboism"(Because these annoying f***ers are included in every game so far), or to another element of New Arcadia. My personal guess is that the Third/Fourth god will be a "God of Darkness", since the city itself has an extremely dark vibe to it, and almost all of the work is done at night, in storms etc.
I appreciate your invested time!
