Description: You’re in a red boat ripping through the ocean and looking back at the rear of the boat. From the left to right: a leather seat with a GPS device pinging for the Kraken, a handle for you to steer the engine with, a coil of rope, an ice chest, and a plunger-like tool, labelled “MILO-TOOL”. A red balloon and a red flag with Milo’s widely grinning face on it are both flying on a flagpole on the edge of the boat.
Description Note: As you navigate the oceans with Milo in his boat through the chapter, fog may appear and obscure visibility of the horizon. Also, the island may appear in the background with the docks as the most identifiable landmark.
Vine Island Museum
Description: You enter The KelpCo exhibit, a green-walled room with a floor-to-ceiling statue of kelp to your right. Near the ceiling is the KelpCo logo, text: “KELP” in green and “CO”, in orange, buoyed by kelp. The television plays a video of smiling KelpCo employees handling kelp and kelp bulbs. Closed captions flashes: “KelpCo created a safe and sustainable method of fishing invaluable kelp bulbs.” Two pictures, below the television, are of KelpCo employees holding up kelp together and a KelpCo scientist in a blue hijab holding up a glowing lime green test tube. Under that is a visualization of KelpCo’s supply chain: kelp is harvested by a trawler; kelp is liquefied; the liquid kelp is bottled up; finally, kelp is sent all over the world.
Hall of Heroes
Description: You’re analyzing a golden statue of Chloe the Captain, a Black woman holding up a monocular telescope to her right eye. Chloe has braids, circular earrings, a long coat with various items in her pockets, a decorative shawl across her chest attached to her epaulets on her shoulders, pants, and tall boots. She has a dog at her side with a half-cloak around it sitting on a pillar as tall as Chloe’s hips. To the left of the statue is a painting of Chloe and her dog steering a ship. Below, her telescope is displayed in a glass cage with instructive text, a braille plaque, and a video of a sign language narrator.
Description: You appear to be in a reality entirely separate from the world. Glowing blue and purple lines run parallel and intersect each other, creating a grid continuing into the horizon as far as the eye can see. The atmosphere is purplish-blue.
Description Note: This description changes if you decide to play either game in the Virtual Reality Arcade. The options are BOTCRAFT and DST CRISIS. Selecting BOTCRAFT will add a virtual building made of glowing blue and purple squares stacked on top of each other with a space in the middle on the right side of the Virtual Reality Arcade.
Selecting DST CRISIS will add a glowing pink clock with two hands on the right side of the Virtual Reality Arcade. The short hand is about to point at 9 o’clock. The long hand is nearly pointing at 2 o’clock.
Description: You’re on a footpath, lined with a guardrail, on the side of the mountain overlooking the ocean. Bushes punctuate the sides. The left side is a steep bank to the top of the mountain. A lighthouse, with a giant gear on its side and standing on rocks, is visible on the horizon. The sun is golden and radiant.
Description Note: The night-time version of the scene is the same, except it is a dark, cloudy night. The lighthouse is alight and casting two beams in the opposite directions.

Introduction Chapter - "The Kraken's Welcome"
You’re on a beach and it’s night-time. You’re looking at a watch on your left wrist that is part of your blue hologram-like arm. The watch has a catlike robot waving at you!
The Kraken, a massive sea monster, suddenly emerges out of the ocean on the horizon ready to attack! Kat is holding onto your wrist for dear life. There is a young boy trapped in kelp between rocks to your right. He has a red balloon attached to his left wrist for some inexplicable reason.
Description Note: This panel will be different based on choices you make in the game. There are three versions.
- If you make the choice to throw something at the Kraken… You see a rock on the sand and you go to pick it up. Kat looks excited!
- If you make the choice to rescue the boy… You run over to the boy trapped by the kelp in the rocks. You reach down to rip the kelp off of his right ankle. He quickly thanks you!
- If you make the choice to distract the Kraken… Kat is pointing at a cart full of glow toys, prompting you to run over to it!
Description Note: This panel will be different based on choices you make in the game. There are three versions.
- If you make the choice to throw something at the Kraken… You throw the rock with all of your might and nail the Kraken right on its forehead! The Kraken is jolted by the impact and this action buys time for the boy to break out of the kelp trapping him and escape. Kat is enduring your arm’s powerful movement.
- If you make the choice to rescue the boy… Now that the boy is free, he runs away from the Kraken while you hide in the rocks!
- If you make the choice to distract the Kraken… You pick up a glowing sherbet-like sword and swing it around. The Kraken sees you and becomes confused by your actions, buying time for the boy to free himself from the kelp trapping him and escape.
The Kraken changes its mind and departs the beach to disappear into the ocean. Now that they know it’s safe, people console each other on the beach. Some of them are taking pictures or standing in awe of the Kraken and its size. There’s a cart near the boardwalk full of glow toys.
Rita's Cafe Chapter - "Attack on Rita's Cafe"
You’re in Rita’s Cafe and surveying the scene. Rita is behind the counter and wiping it down. People are chattering and laughing. Some are watching someone about to dive from the cliffside opposite the restaurant. It’s sunny and peaceful.
A long, spindly claw dripping with water is reaching up into the air behind a young Black girl, fear creeping onto her face, who is about to notice it.
The Kraken reaches over the guardrailing on the side of Rita’s Cafe and causes a scene on the deck! People are running for their lives, spilling over everything in the process, and you’re there trying to organize the escape for safety!
Description Note: this panel will be different based on the choices you make in the game.
- If you make the choice to stay in the restaurant… You’re with a family trying to stay quiet behind the counter out of the Kraken’s sight. You have your hands out and you’re motioning for them to stay calm.
- If you make the choice to go out to confront the Kraken… You run out of the cafe and point at the Kraken as it breathes heavily, emitting powerful jets out of its nose.
Description Note: this panel will be different based on the outcome for the choices you make in the game.
- If your attempt to calm down the family succeeds… You peek from behind the counter and you see the Kraken deciding to leave the restaurant for the ocean.
- If your attempt to calm down the family fails… the Kraken notices the family and thrashes, causing more damage to the restaurant with its claws and giant light orb antenna.
- If your attempt to throw something at the Kraken succeeds… You throw a plate full of kelp delicacies at the Kraken. It licks its own face and excitedly catches the kelp with a bite!
- If your attempt to lasso the Kraken succeeds… You throw a loop and manage to catch it on the Kraken’s light orb antenna! The Kraken is taken aback and fights to get the rope off of itself.
- If your choice to go out and do something about the Kraken fails… The Kraken thrashes and causes more damage to the restaurant! You’re thrown back by the thrashing and black out.
A bird’s eye view of the cafe’s deck, the cliffside opposite from it, and the ocean below. The Kraken’s tail is submerging into the water. Tables are broken and flipped over everywhere. Utensils are all over on the deck.
Everyone’s collecting their breaths and decompressing from the scary, dangerous experience that they’ve just had.
Museum Chapter - "Visit at the Museum"
You approach the Vine Island Museum. The day is nice. There are people resting on the grass next to the Museum. To your right, a family of an older woman in a wheelchair, a young boy, and a woman are about to enter the Museum.
Starla is in the lobby conversing with you. You both introduce yourself to each other and you ask Starla questions about her life. She expands on her background and goals. She is using the sign for “study”.
You’re in the Hall of Heroes. All kinds of people are all around the hall enjoying the exhibit. Rays of sunshine brightens the hall and the showcases.
A hologram display glows with a topographical map of Vine Island and the lighthouse. A display is next to it with menus and buttons for you to manipulate the hologram display with. Kat looks on approvingly with a smile.
A video of KelpCo employees presenting a golden orb taken from the kelp plays in the exhibit. Above is the KelpCo logo. Below is a showcase of KelpCo and its various processes. Kat is surprised by what you both learn!
Kat motions for you to look at the fossil exhibit. The exhibit is full of images of various fossils, evolutionary lineages, and size comparisons.
Boardwalk Chapter - "Fun at the Boardwalk"
The arcade is busy with young people hanging out and playing games!

Description Note: Panel 2 and Panel 3 will switch positions depending on the order of choices you make in the game.
- Choosing to play either game in the Arcade will result in the game coming first in the comic panel.
- If you choose to play DST Crisis first… People that look obviously virtual and sheen-like are hounding you in all kinds of ways! You must get through the pack to get to work on time!
- If you choose to play Botcraft first… You’re in the middle of a grid-like world. Glowing blue and purple lines run parallel and intersect each other to create grids that continue into the horizon. You’re holding in a pickaxe. You must find a way to get on your virtual co-worker’s good side so you can both start building blocks!
Same panels as above. The game you play after your first choice is displayed here.
A wise plump mermaid sits on a treasure chest with ship remains and fishes all around here on the ocean bottom all enclosed in this machine. Text on top: “Scylla Tells-All”. On the bottom is a deposit for you to insert tokens in for Scylla to tell your fortunes.
You’ve just had a disappointing encounter with the KelpCo employee named Chance. He is oblivious and ignorant. You’ve just told Maya about what happened, so Maya is motioning for Chance to come over so she can teach him about deaf people and deaf culture. People are all around them on the boardwalk buying ice cream, chatting, and enjoying the boardwalk on this sunny day.
Docks Chapter - "Day at the Docks"
Milo is in his boat and motioning for you to come over!
You’re in the boat, but visibility is limited due to the fog that has suddenly appeared out of nowhere on the ocean.
- If you made the choice to assist Milo by using the Milo-Tool, a plunger-like device, to bring back tracking orbs… You’re using both hands to grip the Milo-Tool!
- If you made the choice to assist Milo by using the GPS device to navigate the waters… You are now holding up the device and tracking dots with your left index finger.
- If you made the choice to assist Milo by driving the boat… You’re now holding the steering wheel. You’re ready to go!
A golden dragonfly-like ocean creature jumps out of the water and bites on the tracking orb. Milo is shocked and taken back by the unexpected appearance! You both now must work together to get the orb away from the creature.
- If your attempt to assist Milo succeeds… Milo now has the tracking orb in his hands and he is happy!

KelpCo Chapter - "The KelpCo Interview"
You’re at the base of the mountain. Kat is signing J-O-B with its right hand and pointing up at the KelpCo headquarters at the top of the mountain towering above all. The sun is shining brightly to the left of the summit. A trail snakes from your feet to the headquarters, creating two switchbacks along the way. Trees, plants, and creatures, all unique to Vine Island, line the trail.
Eaton Fogbane, the CEO of KelpCo, welcomes you into his office! You’ve prepared as much as possible in getting to this point, and now you’re ready to ace the interview with Mr. Fogbane.
Lighthouse Chapter - "Secret of the Lighthouse"
Description Note: The panel will be different based on the choices you make in the game. There are three versions.
- If you choose to use the sword… Kat has somehow transformed into a massive robot, just as big as Kraken, and now it has a sword in its right hand. Mecha-Kat and the Kraken, full of menacing energy, are about to meet on the turbulent sea while the storm is pouring and shooting off blasts of lightning! You’re in a pod, away from the battle that’s about to happen, and controlling Mecha-Kat.
- If you choose to use the shield… same scene as above, except Mecha-Kat has a massive shield in its hand.
- If you choose to use the laser… same scene as above, except Mecha-Kat’s right hand is now a laser cannon that’s charging up.
On top is a doodle of the Kraken that’s more like a crab with long legs and a beak. Next to it is another smaller diagram of the bottom view of the Kraken. In the bottom left corner are six variations of Kat’s face, all in different styles. Next to these variations are more diagrams of Kat and how it would function as a watch. They are: Kat with full limbs, hands, and feet; Kat is stretching out a long leg; Kat is flying like a helicopter; how the watch would secure onto the wrist; how Kat could spin and run.
A map of Vine Island and a front page newspaper clipping are both taped above the ocean with the moon high in the sky. The newspaper clipping from top to bottom: “THE VINERS”; “KRAKEN DEFEATED”; a photo of the Kraken washed up on the beach; “KELPCO CEO RESIGNS”; and a photo of Eaton Fogbane waving a white flag.
