Killing Time ending

Post by jacare » Sat Aug 09, 2008 3:42 pm

Hi everyone,
I was just wondering how can i the good ending for 3DO Killing Time? No matter what I try, I still keep getting the bad ending after beat the game (destroy all 6 clocks and the waterclock). I've obtained all the keys and vessels and obtain almost 100% for all areas.

I'm using Freedo 1.8 to play this game in Easy difficulty. Could it be that I have to beat the game in Medium difficulty?

i've tried it just about every way there is , i don't think there is a good ending in the 3do version . there is a good ending in the pc version , but when you see the video it's obviously the layout from the pc version . and they reused a lot of videos from the 3do version in that game , if there had been a good ending for the 3do version you'd think they would have used it instead of making a new one . i beat it a few weeks ago in hard with no cheats (which took forever) %100 of everywhere , all keys , all vessles , and there still wasn't a good ending .

Well there are at least two endings in the console version, not sure what you would consider good

there is two endings. i cant remember how they go but one of them is if you dont collect all vessles. The other is if you do collect them all. They are both bad endings.

Well one: Tess comes after you with all the other evil characters after the door slams and you burn.

Two: Tess comes in with a Tommy gun and blows away Duncan in mummy form, then he morphs into human form, says something dumb and dies. It still sucks but it's better than burning.

The second one I mention you do NOT need to get all the vessles or even explore the whole game. I got this ending the first time I played and I collected about half and hadn't been through the whole mansion. I didn't think I could even end the game like that until it happened. I was like "Huh? She shot him for me? That was kinda lame." So I played again from scratch and ended up with the really bad ending.

If there is a good ending I haven't found it yet.

well i just added the good ending from the pc version to you tube , but you can obviously see it's not from the 3do version just from the style . i seriously don't think there's a good ending in the 3do version ....tho i never knew about beating it without all the vessles , i know what i'm doing tomorrow .

Smoking Room

Post by darci663 » Sat Jan 24, 2009 8:52 pm

I always thought the smoking room was the hardest on the 3do. On the PC, I'm not sure...

I do wish the PC had more of the 3do look to it. They should have re-done the GHOST flashbacks. They should of had the same clowns with the TICKLE TICKLE sound, as well as the AUNT BEA maid saying HOUSE KEEPING. and I did miss the flying red heads. That really made the game for me. I do like how the PC had more places to go.

Is there any new info on this? I've heard conflicting reports that there's two endings, three endings, or five endings, but nobody is giving details.

I also found a small write-up somewhere which says its pertaining to the 3DO version, and has minor details of an end boss fight with Tess.

As far as I can tell there are two endings in the 3DO. Three in the PC version is absolute.

Since this thread was resurrected, I was inspired to beat killing time in one day again. I was up all night and I think it took 6-7 hours or so. Dont quote me on that though. I kinda forgot when I started playing and I wasn't playing through too fast. I still remembered where all the keys and vessles were. Why do I remember un-important things? Time to go to bed, just in time for the construction in front of my house to start. :/ oh well. Im so tired i'll prolly pass out quickly lol.

I guess so, its just that multiple endings in FPS games wasn't really the norm for the time so I find it surprising that Studio 3DO put the time in to make two, but have them both as being bad endings.

Also, from what you guys seemed to be saying earlier you actually get a better ending from playing worse than you do from tirelessly collecting everything :?

I don't surpose there was ever a walkthrough published in 3DO magazine or anything? I checked for FAQs on the internet but there was only ones for the PC version.

On occasion developers do put fairly obscure objectives to gain different ending (such as completion within a time limit or something) so simply playing through it over and over might not open up a true ending if it exists, (which is looking unlikely) maybe someone with technical expertise can just look in the game file for FMV movies or something?
