Well, I suppose technically I finished the investigation...

The Shoggoth spawns, but surprisingly I manage to defeat it, in my one turn after one of my investigators falls...

However, there are 4 zombies and a zombie horde still on the board... one of my investigators has gone permanately insane, the others are on the verge of insanity... things are truly grim.

Feels like a loss to me.

Or is this just Lovecraftian.

I imagine "winning" is preventing the soggoth from spawning... but I haven't achieved this yet.

Peace

Did the app play an ending, and if so, which one?

Yes my last two were something along the lines of ...
Spoiler (click to reveal)
The portal is closed, the cultists fade into it... but the zombie fight has just begun.

The first time I played I didn't even get to attempt the puzzle, actually I didn't even reveal the tower, a Shoggoth spawned and I managed to kill it... getting this ending. Didn't feel like a win.

The second time I played, I managed to solve the first puzzle, but failed to solve the second puzzle in time, and instead of a shoggoth spawning, Walter spawned... and I managed to take him down. Getting this ending again.

I imagine that disrupting the machine before Emma gets it to work is the "winning" ending.


Thanks for your interest in my thread.

Sometimes a scenario has multiple endings. It's up to you whether you count them as a win or not.

I agree. I am confused as to whether we won, with the scenario we witnessed.
Spoiler (click to reveal)
we never opened the trap door. After a while, a SHOGGOTH spawned from a portal above the trap door, and we were told that if we wanted to get out alive, we had to kill it. So we did. and that ended the game.

But then the ending stated that "the fight had just begun" and zombies were clawing through the floorboards below us. We ended feeling as if we didn't technically lose, but did we actually win?
