I found it to be kind of silly with the chests near the end. Luckily I saved right before I opened any of them. Then I got the shining key and got the normal ending.

Also, in the place with the nyancat music, I tried loading a save I did there and go back to look for clues for the best ending, but the game crashed because the door wasn't set to go anywhere.

Also, writing this, I think I remember some parts I overlooked.
Well I'm glad you enjoyed it!

I threw in the chest thing to make a luck scenario. Evidently, I forgot to lock that door in the Church. Anyways, in order to get the differing endings, you'll need to find an object in Ryland's house. I intended to reward the player for searching a room thoroughly, and finding said item in the house will also make those angel statues...not so mean.

Ah, nice one. I usually search everywhere really closely, but I guess I'll just play your story again :3
EDIT: Oh I found it, can't believe I missed it
So I beat the story WITH the item now, and I STILL only got the neutral ending :/

EDIT:
Spoiler below!
So I tried doing a run where I didn't talk to any of the angels, but when I got out of the mine I accidently used my hammer twice on the door before using the key. Then I used the oil, the door wouldn't opened, tried both options a few times and suddenly they wouldn't work. Now I'm stuck outside the door

How to achieve the endings:
Spoiler below!

Bad: Go through the game without the item from Father Ryland's house.
Neutral: Go through the game with the item, and use it to deliver judgement (interact with the angel statue needed) OR find a particular key right before the end in the chest room
Good: Go through the game with the item, but don't use it to deliver judgement(interact with angel statue needed)

As far as that bug goes...looking back at my code I realize that I didn't do it right. Unfortunately, if you use either the hammer or the oil on the door more than once, it won't open. Sad

I've played the story a couple of times. I got the neutral ending only when I didn't kill the guy in the room. If I killed him, I got the bad ending. Am I supposed to spare him and then pick up a dull key?

EDIT: Oh yeah I beat it now, not killing the guy and picking up a dull key. I lol'd when I heard what music you picked for the credits.

Anyways, now that I've played your story a bajillion times, I'll give a more precise review.

Spoiler below!
It was really well-done. The outside area in the beginning was really nice. I loved everything about it. The four paths you could choose was also a very good idea, but the forge path was a bit difficult. I would never have thought to check out the cloth if nobody had pointed it out, because clothes are too common. When I had the copper tube, I also didn't know that I had to use the hammer first on the table, so I was stuck running around in that area for ages. I also didn't expect that I needed two keys.

I also liked the way you could summon the demon, but what I did on my first playthrough was to use all my tinderboxes strategically to light up what I needed of the main hallway in case a monster would appear, so I didn't get to see that scene until I tried to save my tinderboxes on purpose.

The mine was a really nice touch. I kept on my toes through it the entire time. It had a very omnious feel to it. Though when I touched the angel statue and it offered me a lot of things to jump on, I think the water was a little too high up, so staying on the boxes and barrels was just too hard for me to bother with doing it.

The different ending thing was great! I encourage developers to make different endings, because it makes things interesting and adds replayability to the story. Though the chest thing was maybe a bit too random. Maybe. I don't know if you put shining keys in more than one chest. If you put more than one, then it's alright.

Overall, I would give your story a 8 out of 10. One point for the glitches I encountered, and the other one for the story being pretty short. Otherwise, I really recommend people to play your story.
Shameless bump because I honestly feel it's criminal this custom story hasn't received as much attention as it deserves.

Obliviator is a very talented individual and more people need to know that it's not some weird German custom story people might think it is since its title is a bit different.
