In the Game Edit
In the game, the scientist shows up telling the main character, whose name is unknown, that he has a disease. He tells him that he is going to hallucinate, tells him good luck, and becomes a beast with white eyes and a black face. This is a part of the hallucination.
I (Ryan) was the original voice actor for the character. I named him Ethan after one of the voice actors who plays characters like the Balloon in the full game and Jax (the Shopkeeper). I thought it was a funny easter egg. Ethan (the voice actor) got angry when he found out he isn't playing him because he is called Ethan. Now it is voiced by him.
