    what if arthur isn't david, but instead he's another kid/sibling of another kid who got murdered for the duck season ritual and he had ties with david and his mother because maybe their parents worked on fantasy land together before everything that happened. *but hey, that's just a theory, a game theory*

    I actually see one other potential thing, @10:15 I think Author Ford might actually be the hunter in the Duck Season game. Which would explain why in some endings, the Dog waves at you, because the Dog recognizes you and is taunting you as if to say: 'Sorry, you failed again.'

    6:15 The baseball doesn't have dog prints - those usually have claw marks too. Those are cat prints. Maybe not relevant or important, but maybe the void kitty has some connection to the baseball and their family? I just find it unlikely that the devs would get the print wrong if they're using it for some kind of plot significance. I think that the connection between the baseball and his father is clear enough from the signatures and his involvement in the sport. Adding paw prints MAY distinguish it from being from another team, but I feel more likely that it's meant to tie something else together.
