Game Name
« on: January 12, 2009, 05:26:10 PM »
What is the meaning of the name of this game?

I know that in 'Do you remember my lullaby,' the song in the musicbox is kind of like her lullaby, and quintessence is easy to understand, but what about this.

What does this have to do with 'the mirror lied'?

birdie and the 'father' I suppose. Nothing is definitely true. Everything lies...

It's pretty ambiguous, but one way to see it (the one that occurs to me) is that when you look into the mirror, you (Leah) see yourself - but it lies, so you don't actually exist, hence hinting that it's not literally a person in a house that you are playing, and rather just some figurative metaphor.

^There's the pretentious explanation for ya. :P

Yeah, I guess. But  I never really said that it was. Oh, well. Whatever.

I wondered if "lied" had a double meaning - in German Lied means song.

The Mirror Song?

*shrug*

I feel like that's the only thing I understood about the game, and I'm not even sure if it was intended!  :)

Actually, you're right. It was supposedly vague right down to the pronunciation of Lied (Reives' sort of post-Elfen Lied high) but Reives blew it on one of To the Moon's pre-release videos. :P

As i said it the other topic, i think the mirror symbolizes her only company and hope, that lied. but the "you dont really exists" theory is good too. ;)
