So from looking up sources, refreshing twitter, tumblr, and reddit in search for what is going on, i have a pretty good understanding of what this secret ending with Joseph is about.
I believe how it started was someone trying to find out if there was a good ending with Joseph. As of now, (7/23/17) all i know is that there is a ending where Joseph has sex with you, and then goes back to his wife. I heard that there was a second ending where you stay his side hoe, but i haven’t gotten that ending nor seen anyone else get it. I guess while data mining someone had found and posted the dialog where you wake up after having sex with Joseph, you are in a underground ‘dungeon’.
The dialog goes on to show that Joseph is not human at all, but some sort of demon. He calls his kids ‘vessels’ that are apart of him. Joseph tells your dad that you are underground below the cul-de-sac and anyone who has ever seen this place has died. Joseph then says:
“…Just think of it as the real Margarita Zone.”
Then Joseph admits that the reason why all the dads in the area are single is because he hunted them down and was using their power to fuel this entity(?)
It doesn’t stop there, Joseph goes on to say:
“Now you’ll excuse me, there’s some other business I need to attend to. Your dear friend Robert has been awfully worried about you. I think it’s about time that miserable drunk gets one last visit from the Dover Ghost.’’
After this Mary shows up and sets you free, you run and run and make it back home somehow. Once you get in Amanda greets you and things seem normal…until you ask her when he birthday is and you realize that Joseph made a fake Amanda. The “demon” Amanda turns to ash and this is followed by you trying to stab Joseph with the knife that Robert gave you. You drop the knife in the struggle, where Mary grabs the knife and stabs Joseph. His children attack him and possibly eat him(?). You end up waking up in bed and told by Amanda that the yacht you were on sank. Joseph was found to be taking money from the church and was no where to be found.
Detective Saul Graves comes in and tells you he saw the underground dungeon himself and that his own wife died mysteriously.
Now, for the speculation. Everything above was found IN THE GAME.
People started to make some connections to Robert and Joseph. Robert has a odd looking tattoo that he doesn’t want to talk about. Joseph has the same tattoo, and that symbol keeps showing up in the game.
On Joseph’s walls…
This is the cult’s symbol. Its all through the game, and in the actual dungeon.
The symbol is even on the build your dad clothing options…
Not to mention the times robert warns you about joseph and how they had some twisted past together.
People having been saying that this ending was a Halloween DLC.
I would like an answer as to: 1.) Who said it was a DLC and were the screenshot proof is. 2.) If it is a Halloween DLC, why is the cult symbol EVERYWHERE IN GAME. 3.) Why would they have a DLC for a game that just came out a few days ago..
I’ve seen people also say that it was something the game devs wanted to take out, thinking it was too much for a silly queer dating sim. This is more believable. I heard that one of the devs is into the horror genre, but this isn’t confirmed. Even so, why would they leave so much code in for data miners to find and cause people to get upset over. If they didn’t want to upset anyone why did they leave so much in for people to find?
As what I've seen and heard, at the moment there is no way of getting this ending. The code is apparently broken and wont start like the other endings.
These could all could be possible ideas….If there wasn’t a steam achievement out for “Escape from Margarita Zone” that no one has gotten.
Along with that achievement, there’s “World’s okayest Dad” which no one out of the thousands of people playing can unlock. ( sidenote: someone on reddit said they got the achievement and wouldn’t say how, but looking deeper into it they seemed to have hacked the achievement and not gotten it ‘naturally’)
I think that you can get the achievement and this chapter 18, cult ending. It might be a “true” ending, but that’s up to the person playing to decide.
HoodiePanda hosted a stream where he said himself that there is a possible Mary bug that the devs have confirmed which might be the reason we cant unlock this ending. This guy has played 24+ hours on this game and i think i can agree.
OKAY OKAY SO I was thinking about Soulmate AUs because I’m a SUCKER for those and THEN I started thinking about a Soulmate Sim AU (so, an AU of an AU? Lol)
Keith’s soulmark is bright blue, almost luminescent, and it’s scrawled over his shoulderblades in some weird hybrid of neat and messy writing. Some part of him wishes that Lance were his soulmate, but Lance’s first words to him were “Nope. No, you–no, no, no. No, you don’t. I’m saving Shiro.” and the words on his back say “Keith…come on, Keith, wake up!”
In hindsight, his words are pretty vague–they could come from anybody. He gets into trouble all the time, being knocked unconscious by an angry fleet of Galra ships, an enormous space beast or some other crazy accident. He hears words similar to that phrase all the time, but never the exact sentence.
And then, suddenly, one day, he does hear them.
It’s after their final fight against Zarkon–he’d been out for three weeks due to a minor coma caused by a traumatic head injury, so waking up after that was a struggle. And then the words come, “Keith…come on, Keith, wake up!” It’s like lightning striking through his mind and he bursts into consciousness, losing his breath and fumbling for words when he sees that the person who said them is none other than Lance.
Of course, he’s immediately confused. Is he wrong? Lance said the azure words written on his back, but they weren’t the first words he’d ever said–and that’s how soulmarks work, he knows, because he’d seen it with Shiro and Allura before (“How do you have the Blue Lion?”, which, was oddly specific, and “We don’t know what you’re talking about”–amazing that Allura and Shiro’s presence was separated by ten thousand years, and they were drawn together anyway, like some strange twist of fate). So then his hopes fall again, realizing that it must be coincidence that Lance said those words, maybe he’d seen them when Keith was unconscious and decided to say them as some sort of joke (he gets slightly bitter about the matter and kinda takes it out on Lance, but whatever). From that day on he tells himself over and over to stop hoping, to stop dreaming about meeting his soulmate, and especially to stop thinking it might be Lance as he inevitably falls in love with him anyway.
Then the world as he knows it comes crashing down.
It’s…all fake? All a lie? He really isn’t back on Earth with Lance, everything he’d experienced with him after waking up from his coma was just some made up world created to protect him? The betrayal hurts unlike anything he’d ever felt before, and standing face to face with this…artificial version of Lance, he doesn’t want to believe it.
The simulator shuts down and everything disappears with it–their memories, their laughter and their joy–and so does Lance. And when Keith wakes up to find he’s crash landed into some planet and the pod he’s in is damaged beyond repair, he rips out what remains of Lance’s AI cube and holds it close to his chest. He’s going to save him, no matter what, even if he lied and tricked him into believing they were finally at peace–and that’s when he realizes.
“Keith…come on, Keith, wake up!”
Those were the first words Lance said to him. Not his Lance, not the Lance of Team Voltron, the Blue Paladin, nor the human from Earth that was in the same class as him at the Garrison–but Lance, the AI, the happy-go lucky robot with a consciousness and a heart and emotions and so much love for Keith that he almost drowns in it, of course–
Can his soulmate be an artificially made person? He doesn’t know, but the bright, neon blue words, the same color as Lance’s eyes, match up, and everything makes sense all at once.
And so when figures emerge from the smoke billowing out of the crashed capsule he holds out the cube and begs for them to save Lance, because hell if he’s going to let his soulmate die, human being or not.
Lance doesn’t have a soulmark, because he wasn’t born with one. The original Lance and Pidge didn’t feel the need to give him one, because doing so would be wrong, going against all the rules and laws of the universe and soulmates.
But Keith–Keith is bound to him. The words he’d said when Keith woke up in the simulator for the first time were words meant for him, meaning that all along, Lance was meant to be created. Fated.
While Hunk and Katy work on creating a physical body for his core, his AI cube, to be put into outside of his existence in the simulator, he asks them a favor. For a modification, to be more specific.
When Keith sees Lance for the first time, blue eyes vibrant with code and matching the color on his shoulderblades, he starts crying out of happiness.
For written in his handwriting, a gentle red color, are the words “Lance…where…where are we?” It’s not anything remotely romantic, but it’s his words, the first words he’d said to Lance when he woke up and they met for the first time. And that means more to him than anything.
So yah i know i’m late but WELCOME TO THE YANDERE SIMULATOR FAMILY YAN-KUN

Kyo, Kiyoharu, and Ruki-sims enjoying the little cafe I built! The name and a few of the graphics come from a real place in Seattle that came up during my google searches… no real significance, but it looks super tasty!
I really feel like doing more building/decorating right now!
