4. You thought it was all just a simulation. It isn't.
5. Rotag is actually NETRICSA's prototype.
6. Your creators are AI too.
7. Rotag finds that its meaning in life sucks, and you get to choose his fate.
8. One of the puzzles will turn out to be a Serious Sam reference/callback level.
9. Rotag is actually a Biomechanoid.
10. Turns out this isn't humanity's ruins, but a species very similar to it.
11. Final boss is Croteam Bighead Roman.
12. Final boss is an Ugh-Zan.
13. Final parts of the game leads up to a final boss, except there won't be any boss.
14. A plot twist in a plot twist.
15. A plot twist in a plot twist of a plot twist that is plot twisted by the plot twister.
16. Turns out there's no plot twists at all.
17. Everything in the game is subjective, ala Evangelion.
18. A trailer for The Talos Principle 2 at the end.
19. Ends in a cliffhanger, ala Serious Sam 2, Halo 2, Half-Life 2, Ep2, MW2, ME2.

I actually wanted to quote Devo's post myself from the other thread, but then I remembered there used to be a time when images with "****ing" in 'em were frowned upon around here, so I thought eeeh, **** it.

24. The first sound you hear in the final puzzle is "!cirabiR namoR, em llik tsum uoy emag eht niw oT" played from a sound file called dsbossit.wav.

25. Final puzzle is very disappointing compared to the rest of the game.

26. An easter egg mocking Portal.

27. An easter egg scaring you with a Headless Kamikaze scream, which turns out to be just a harmless audio player.... that explodes once you're near it.

Why Roman? He's not like Carmack or Romero, he's basically just a mascot of Croteam.
