A question on Faye’s guitar
« on: December 19, 2017, 08:39:28 AM »
-Warning: Spoilers on Finding Paradise-

So you know how in the last scene Faye said “you can’t hear my guitar can you” and Colin implied that he can’t because Faye’s imaginary and all.

How come Neil and Eva can hear both the Cello and Guitar when the 2 played together on the hill top?

I mean if Colin can’t hear it then how can Neil and Eva in the memory?

It will exist in the raindrops falling on the parched earth, and in the end it will exist in the air we breath” - Henning Mankell (Chronicler of The Winds)

It was "You could never actually hear what I was playing, could you?"
And that "actually" should suffice to answer your question.

Since his imagination is strong, I think he is able to imagine the guitar piece as vividly as he can imagine something physical in the world apparently.
Also I have another theory on the guitar parts Faye played, remember Colin watched Godfather? He also watched "Mew Mew's Acoustic Guitar performance" or something before that, so he probably snatched Faye's guitar notes from there.
Videogame developers are not gods that anyone should worship. I hereby decide that is my top existential reason to prove that horrible, horrible misconception, because that is becoming annoyingly rampant in every corner of the internet.  They can deserve critism, or thrashing even. It doesn't even need to be constructive critism. And even if you are a free game developer doesn't mean community is your personal ego farm.

But later in his life the same tune comes out of Sophia's piano (and in the game either Eva or Neil specifically mentions it). I still don't really know why they're the same, though. Colin couldn't possibly have made it up himself, since we know when we first hear the tune up on the hill at the time he could only play cello and only very basic scales.

One theory is that it is actually made up by Sophia and Colin only applied it to his childhood memory, which isn't too hard to imagine since it was a fantasy in the first place. But I still think there's something else I missed...

I think the key for this and a few other occurrences in the story is the concept of memories never being truly "set in stone" -- Every time a memory is recalled sometime after its creation, it is also changed, even if slightly, before being "put back".

It's kinda funny, but the guitar tracks really were arranged in a piano track kinda style, merely using the guitar sound font (I mean, I honestly couldn't have done a proper guitar-styled guitar track if I tried, hahah).
