It was a puzzle, which I solved completely by accident, but we'll pretend I'm a genius. Anyway, what resulted was the weirdest thing I've seen yet.
Essentially, you release someone, who is then stopped by a metal angel thingy shooting phantom blades, who beams that someone up and vanishes (into space presumably). You get a pretty cool sword and shield out of it, and a camel bird (pictured above). The whole cut scene was weird and out of place, and the weapons and shield are also really out of place. I believe I may have accused someone of being on an acid trip during the stream.
I later tried to describe it to my flatmate as this weird Final Fantasy cut scene thing.
Little did I know that I was absolutely right. Turns out, the guy you release is an antagonist from the Final Fantasy series, as is your sword and shield reward. You also get a mount, which is the Egyptian version of the Final Fantasy chocobo.
So, yeah. That's a thing that happened.
So now I have a cool sword and shield.
I still prefer my horse, Fang, though.
Anyway, it was so weird in the moment, that it took me a while to fall asleep. I was up thinking about that weird camel bird.
And that's all I have for you today. I'm off to do more editing on Soldier.
