What if the Batter’s mission actually IS pure? What if that world didn’t need to be there?
The Player goes through the game through the Batter, exterminating the ghosts and exploring this crazy chunk of netherworld. We encounter many different ghosts and we learn of the elements that make the world.
Smoke- The air they breathe is mined from deep within the ground, some of it escapes and maintains the atmosphere, while much of it the Elsens send to the other zones. “Without smoke, there would be nothing to breathe.”
Metal- The ground they walk on and the structures they build. The Elsens mine some of the metal, but they harvest most of the metal by killing cows and collecting the accumulated stones from their remains. “Without metal, there would be no ground to walk on.”
Plastic- Plastic forms the oceans and the boundaries of the world. The Elsens either mine or manufacture plastic. ”Without plastic, there would be no borders and the people would walk forever.”
Meat- The “food source” of the world. Meat is made in Alma supposedly consists of cow, and probably people. Alma has massive bodies of water consisting of nothing but blood and meat. We know the Elsens slaughter cows, but the pictures describing Alma, as well as discovering the process of sugar, it is very much implied that Dedan has the dead Elsens processed in the meat factories as well. “Without meat, there would be nothing to eat and the people would starve.”
Sugar- (This is my favorite. This is where things got really disturbing.) Upon entering Zone 3, the Batter discovers that the Elsens make sugar by burning the bodies of their dead comrades and processing the vapor that comes from the corpses into a confectionery substance that Enoch then distributes to the Elsens as incentive to keep working. The Elsens treat sugar like a drug and crave it for energy and to feel good. “Without sugar, the people would eventually go mad.”
I was disturbed by the meat lakes of Alma, but I was used to seeing that in other games. It’s another thing to realize that a town of people are hopped up on drugs made from the remains of their dead coworkers. They may have no choice but to eat the meal in front of them, but they crave the sweet remains of the dead to feel good. And if the Elsens don’t get their fix, they eventually become spectres.
Then we have the characters…
The Batter- Main protagonist. We know little to nothing about him in the entire game and he has no real personality. His only drive is to stop the spectres and purify the world.
The Judge- Also known as Pablo by Zacharie. Guardian of Zone 0.The cat that guides the Batter through the zones. He helps the Batter as a means to exterminate the Spectres and Guardians. However, once he realizes the Batter has killed his wife and child, he confronts the Batter. Either he dies in the Batter’s ending or he kills the Batter and roams the purified zones.
It is speculated that perhaps Pablo goes by the name the Judge because he might actually be the main guardian of the zones and he allowed the Batter to kill the other Guardians as a means to bring peace to the world.
Zacharie- The merchant of the zones and ally to the Batter. He travels in between zones and sells items to people. He is nice and does not particularly care about the Guardians or the Queen. It is unknown what happens to him in the end.
The Judge and Zacharie are the only characters in the game that acknowledge the Player and the fact they are in a videogame.
Dedan- Guardian of Zone 1. An angry boss who has little regard for the Elsens. But the Queen favored him because of his strength, determination, and iron will. He seems to look down upon the Elsens for their feeble ways in contrast to his own demeanor. His form already looks disturbing and corrupted.
Japhet- Guardian of Zone 2. A kind guardian in the form of a Phoenix. However, years of ruling and trying to appease the people wore him down and he eventually became corrupted. It is speculated that he became a cat after Valerie, the Judge’s brother, caught Japhet and tried to eat the bird, only to choke and die. Japhet took over Valerie’s body as a means of preservation. He grew to hate the Elsens and chose to make their lives miserable for all the pain they gave him.
Note: Japhet is the only Guardian who admits to controlling the spectres.
Enoch- Guardian of Zone 3. Described to be a cold but fair guardian in the form of a massive fat man in typical office attire. He runs the factories in Zone 3 by giving the Elsens sugar in exchange for labor.
Enoch acknowledges the spectres but does not control them. And he only becomes angry and corrupted upon the Batter confronting him. He is also the first character to acknowledge what happens when the Batter “purifies” a zone. (This only happens if the Batter has not explored the purified zones.)
The Queen- Ruler of this insane Netherworld. The Guardians, the Judge, and Zacharie make mention of her. The Elsens rarely speak of her. She is the mother of Hugo and the (ex)wife of the Batter. She elected the Guardians to help maintain the zones of the Netherworld and to keep them running. The books in the Zone 2 library talk about some story how she banished the children made from sin from the kingdom and how during the final confrontation she would confront the “worm child.” Supposedly this would bring about the apocalypse in some form or another and the children of sin would be punished. This is still kinda vague to me.
In The Room, Dedan explains that Hugo’s mother is away “exploring the new world”. She seems to be absent from his life and the one time she actually is present, she is busy preparing Hugo’s birthday party to actually tend to him.
When the Batter finally confronts her, it is revealed that they were married and Hugo is their child. She uses her power of words to try and weaken the Batter, but to no avail.
Also, the Guardians and the Judge speculate she may be responsible behind the ghosts. However, she shows no direct control over them. Meaning that there may be no real leader behind the spectre attacks, outside of Japhets revenge in Zone 2.
Hugo (the Child)- The little boy that awakens from a dream every time the batter defeats a Guardian. He is the child of the Batter and the Queen apparently and is very sick. In his journal, it seems the Batter looked after him more while his mother was away. He hated being indoors all the time and wanted freedom. His only other friends are the Guardians, who are actually kind to him. He serves as the core of the Netherworld that the Queens protects and possibly controls.
The Batter finds Hugo and eventually kills him as a means to continue his mission.
Upon the realization that I reluctantly made the Batter kill his own wife and child, I hated myself for days and did not want to touch this game again. But looking back on it, I came to realize that perhaps the Batter had a point. Yes, killing one’s wife and child is bad. However:
The entire game takes place in some kind of Netherworld, implying that perhaps all the characters are already dead and are spirits wandering some wasteland Silent Hill style.
Upon looking at the facts and theories above, it is implied that the spectres are not controlled directly by anyone and are simply corrupted souls. The Guardians reinforce this theory as they become corrupted adversaries and only show some kind of control over the ghosts when they become courrpted.
The Netherworld is a massive dystopian future where the Elsens thrive off of industrial elements and consume each other.
While the child is the key to the world, the Queen is controlling him and ruling this world, supposedly as a means to protect him. But seriously, who lets a child live in this place? Seriously?
The Netherworld is not entire without life either. The Secretaries serve as caretakers of the purified zones. I assume they attack anything they deem impure, hence why they attack the Batter.
That being said, can we really blame the Batter for his mission? For all we know, he is created because we know this world must end. He knows the world is impure and corrupted and cannot allow it to go on. He knows the Queen is hiding the child and the only way to bring peace to all this is to dispatch them. Even the child hated his captivity. And while killing Hugo is a terrible moment, he is no longer sick, suffering, or under the control of his mother. The suffering and chaos comes to an end, with the flip of the switch.
This moment. Of all the moments in JL, I remember this one the most. I understand her pain and how hard it was not to destroy this guy, but she chose not to for the sake of defeating a monster that fed off of aggression.
