How To Get: New Aman City Ending
Shared by 677 in comments; head to the timeline menu -> blocked timeline banner -> grandmother, again. Keep choosing the first choice until you get to choose between; untie Noona first or destroy the altar and ruin this whole setup. Choose “destroy the altar and ruin this whole setup.” And, then choose; Run straight for the altar. Noona will be shot down by the Groundskeeper.
How To Get: The Outside World Ending
Head to the timeline menu of the game -> tap on encountering the unknown banner -> choose the third option; lost in dreams. Never agree with the spirit’s views, always decline the spirit’s offer every time it comes to your dream/nightmare. Progress further and once you reach the One or the Other timeline checkpoint, a typhoon scene will come up and Noona will ask for help. Choose to help Noona. And after that, when you head to the mountain where the ritual is being conducted by the grandma, choose to destroy the altar; go straight to destroy the altar.
How To Get: The puppeteer(bad ending)
In the last timeline(In the name of the spirit, the third phase), go up the mountain. Choose “Will it all end if I save Noona and run away?”. I should do something right now. Untie Noona first. Ignore him and keep running to Noona.
How To Get: We Are One Ending
Not 100% sure, but we got it by accepting the spirit’s proposal and views in One or the Other and after that. In One or the Other timeline phase, when you come out of Noona’s house, another nightmare begins and in that, the spirit asks you to accept or refuse the proposal. Accepting the spirit unlocks the “Acceptance checkpoint” and path to unlock the We Are One ending. Refusing the proposal unlocks the “Fifth Nightmare” checkpoint.

The Ancestral Legacy Struggling through
The fire that lit the mountain ablaze completely burned out, miraculously, before it spread. The police report attributed it to the heavy rain. But Lee’s family mountain was almost completely destroyed.
That’s when misfortune started spreading through the village. 5 days after the mayor went missing in the fire, the disheveled mayor returned out of nowhere. It was days before any of the villagers caught sight of him again. There were rumors that people had seen him wandering around his yard in the early hours, but that was it. Despite their curiosity, there was a reason no one in the village could actually do something to solve that curiosity.
It was because the pillar of the village, Grandmother Jung Nam, had also disappeared. Her whereabouts also became unknown right after the ancestral ritual took place. The music that had spread from her house every morning had stopped. The housekeeper that came and went was no longer to be seen. The groundskeeper had vanished as well. The house was silent and empty.
Because of the significant size of the forest fire, the jurisdiction went beyond the neighborhood police. Without even a probable rumor for over a month, the villagers finally pieced together what had happened after a full-blown investigation launched by the city police.
The case brought a swarm of local media attention, and creepy rumors that the case was really about the attempted ritual sacrifice of a local village woman swept through the region. The police chief seemed to be overwhelmed by all the attention the case was gaining and defused the situation by saying it was a simple abduction.
The police interrogated the village mayor and some others and it was not hard for them to find out the details of what had happened. The mayor, who claimed he had a mental breakdown, was completely alert while giving his statement, but he thoroughly made himself out to be the victim. In particular, the mayor showed enormous hatred toward a kid named Kyung Lee, but Kyung was a minor, they simply labeled him a victim.
As Kyung Lee’s father confessed, he and Kyung’s grandmother were indicated as the ringleaders and the case seemed to come to a close quickly. All through the whirlwind investigation, however, no one laid eyes on grandmother Jung Nam as if she had disappeared without a trace.
Half a year passed like this, and the village was no longer the same. The national program that the mayor tried to attract had already gone to another region and the young people who had moved to the village with great expectations left the village looking for other ways to improve their lives.
The other villagers did not blame the young people for leaving. It was a known fact that there was nothing in the village for them. The small-scale farmsteads they were keeping were returned to villagers as scraps.
A new year dawned, and winter was coming to an end. The groundskeeper showed up. He had been living in the house that the young woman Yoori Ahn had been living in. He said that his grandmother had given him the house. One of the villagers asked for paperwork to prove this as they did not believe what the groundskeeper was saying. The groundskeeper proudly produced the paperwork and stood up for his rights. The groundskeeper lashed out against the villager and left the scene. The groundskeeper was now a full-fledged villager.
Even so, he remained a cast out among the village. No one even exchanged greetings with him. The groundskeeper seemed to lose the confidence he displayed when he first got the house and seemed to wither away. He ended up being an outsider even with a house in the village.
Of course, the groundskeeper kept up the strange lifestyle he had while living along in the mountains like leaving dead animals from his hunts strewn around. It made the villagers feel like they were living among wild animals. Even though he was not the groundskeeper anymore, he was still not called a villager, and the people still addressed him as the groundskeeper.
Some people went to the village mayor to try and fix the problem, but the mayor had changed. He avoided leaving the house and his once strong stature caring for the village. The mayor and groundskeeper went as far as to ignore each other. The mayor acted as though he had imploded.
The summer after the forest fire, the levee on the embankment of the river next to the village gave out. Help from the town came but it was not enough to prevent the landslide that ruined the terrain. The bridge was closed. Half the farmland was flooded, and that season’s crops were ruined.
Because there was not enough money to fix the village, the annual festival ended up being canceled. Ever since Grandmother, the financial backer of the festivals, had disappeared, all sense of community in the village crumbled.
The end of the village festival seemed to be the last nail in the coffin for the village. The collapsed levee, the absence of the financial pillar, the departure of the young people, and on top of that, the strange behavior of the groundskeeper – Aman 5 village had turned into just another deteriorating rural village within a year of the forest fire.
The elderly living off their pension had no means of leaving, but the middle-aged villagers sold their land and homes, leaving for the main town, for the outside world in order to find a way to survive. The first villager to depart set off a domino effect and the villagers rushed out of the village, leaving it empty as though a plague had ravaged it.
Over the next 10 years, the population of the village shrank from 800 to roughly 100 residents. The village, which had been known for the longevity of its residents, no longer lived up to that reputation. For reasons unknown, residents seemed to pass away unexpectedly or after severe disease and were not even able to make it to the average life expectancy.
Aman 5 was left with those who had no way to leave – the poor, the washouts, the elderly who were hanging on to life by a thread. The only person with energy in that place was the groundskeeper. His presence became even bigger as the village’s population dwindled. In all that time, Kyung Lee’s grandmother did not return and the once grand gate to her now-abandoned house had started to collapse due to disuse. In the meanwhile, the village mayor completely lost his mind.
The village was now simply a name on a map, forgotten, and crumbling. No one came, no one gave the village a second thought. There was no sense of life in the silent village.
On a day when the lonely village was guarded by the last remaining villagers, the person who had visited his grandmother’s house 10 years ago made an unexpected trip to the village. The first and last person to witness his visit was the groundskee[er who had to do his best to ignore that this visit had ever taken place.
