There are so many secrets buried in Boneworks as it relates to Stress Level Zero's other games, especially Duck Season. There was still one thing left, after our last episodes, that I REALLY wanted to talk to you about. That is the connection between Arthur Ford, our Boneworks protagonists, and David, the protagonist of Duck Season. You see there is evidence that they are, in fact, one and the same. The SAME PERSON at different points in his life, circling back to where it all began and closing the loop. How did I come to this conclusion, Theorists? Let's get started.

  • Boneworks monogon reminds me of IOI from Ready Player One. I mean, there has to be some reference. Does giant popular VR metropolis ring any bells? Also, the name sounds like it would be in that universe: IOI, OASIS, MYTHOS

  • When you said about the police wouldn't believe that another world entity, (The Dog) leapt out of the game and killed his mother. They also killed the dog as well, and are aware of his existence and literally died outside of the kids house. While they may not believe that he leapt out of the game itself, but there would be some credibility for a child's imagination compared to factual information. I feel that given the circumstances they would believe that the dog was the murderer and disregarded the child claims about the game.

  • I want to add something that may or may not work, but maybe it does work. Maybe Duck Season is like a hub and can be found as a little gas stop, and that would explain why there are three doors to three different places involving the void, unlike in Boneworks where there is only one door in the virtual reality. When Mat mentions the door that says "Welcome home.", it could be referencing to how the door connect to the doors in Duck Hunt and therefore David's old house. It would explain how Arthur (old David) could travel back to his old house. Also, when Mat mentions that the hair color of the character might be a bump in the evidence, it wouldn't exactly be unreasonable to how his hair color changed as David grew. There is also the fact that you wouldn't want to have the same hair color that the cops know you have if you're running away from home. David probably died his hair darker so he couldn't be identified, explaining why his hair is so much darker. And that's it. Thank you for reading this!

  • The Kazoo Kid’s name is Brett Ambler. David’s appearance was based off of Brett. David is theorized to be Arthur Ford. Arthur’s design is based off of Brett Driver.

  • So, David becomes Arthur because of the Dog, which is future David/Arthur trying to stop David (and his mom)... but that very act of trying to stop David is what made David become Arthur... Also, void nonsense aside, wouldn't killing his past self technically cause a time paradox?

  • Okay I gotta point this out this is like the fifth time I've been watching this and I just figured something out. Here's my Theory: If Arthur/David is the Dog wich I think then since the Canon ending is what is the real thing happening in the game Arthur as the dog would have known that his younger self kills the dog since he's the older version and it has already happened for him THAT then begins the loop of mom dead David becomes Arthur etc. So basically my Theory is that David's future self only exists because it using the void in the future creates itself in the past. In case you read this Matpat what do you think?

  • 2:24 "Amityville Realty" May be a nod to Amityville Horror! Wikipedia quote -- The Amityville Horror is a book by American author Jay Anson, published in September 1977. It is also the basis of a series of films released from 1979 onward. The book is claimed to be based on the paranormal experiences of the Lutz family, but has led to controversy and lawsuits over its truthfulness. Link -- Might we have a setting for the Duck Hunt game? There's gotta be a link from the books to this...

  • What about alora flicking the gammon switch or hard drive at the end of boneworks? Is she betraying monogon? Did she make the bug/ error on the clip board at the end of duck season. And personally I think that Arthur ford is David’s father because his father might miss him or might want to feel closer to his home. I don’t know I just started to think about this a bit.
