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.

hey matpat, you should make a theory about tthe stanley parable, im not sure how to explain it but in my opinion it definitly deserves a theory, its basically a multiple ending game with some weird phenominons like seeing yourself/the player/stanley walk through a hallway you can't get to in the ending you see that in, i think you can't get there from what i can remember

He David is definitely the guy from bone works, but I just realized he can't be the dog from duck season, because of the duck season ad, why would David's mother, who knows about the void, let her son be with his future self in an ad, and how would she not know the dog was future David when he would be pretty suspicious if he tried to hide his identity from her. the dog just can't be Davids future self, unless the mom was somehow okay with David being near his future self. And if he was the dog, and his plan was to kill his past self and mom, why not do it after or before the ad, instead of go through the game?

Hey Matt, I have a question. Why did David mom ask him to kill the Dog? I mean among all the things she asked that? I was thinking, could it be possible that she was the first one to taste the void. You said the void haves time and space, so could it be possible that she saw future David coming to kill her. I had this question for a very long time

Maybe Arthur is the brown haired player that was seen in the "Stuck" ending of the Duck Season game and David convinced him to help save him. Maybe the next game is Arthur going into the void to save David.

Actually, the dog conferring David in one ending and killing him in the other actually makes sense. When young David traps himself in the void older David is allowed to confer him, he’s stopped the cycle. But if young David is in the real world then there is still a chance of him growing up and releasing the void, so he has to kill his younger self.

Although, If David/Arthur had already been through the experience from duck season, then why would he choose the same outfit and do the same things. I mean, you would think that maybe he’d try to break the cycle and prevent him from killing himself by maybe just telling David that he’s from the future. Otherwise I really do like this theory Matpat, your channels are great!

Maybe DeadFM could take place in between Boneworks and Hall of The Machine King (which is a very epic and promising title for a game). Like DeadFM could show the “Rise” of The Machine King. You could play as a radio station worker or an emergency fire watcher in the middle of the woods, in a tower near a city with a radio on hand. The reason why you would have a radio on hand is because you could report fires in the forest to the fire fighters which looks like you play as one in the Hall of The Machine King (by looking at the model you find in Duck Season PC). And in a flashback you could lose contact with the player/fire watcher in the tower. But those are just my thoughts/theories. Have a good day everyone!

I can confirm that someone's hair color can darken later on in life. I was a blond up until I was 9 years old, where my hair started to become brown. I wasn't a true brunette until 10 but what I'm saying is that if you have thin hair, you can be a blond for a very long time.

How do explain that when David (I think that’s what you said his name was) shoots the dog, the dog get angered and starts to attack? Maybe because they are separate people? Although you have good evidence to support your claim the fact that the dog gets so upset that they would jump out of the game just doesn’t add up (in my opinion). Well here is why I think the dog gets so upset (if we are going along the lines of the dog is author) Well at the end of the game of boneworks you see author getting shot in the game. Now tell me if you witnessed your own death how you feel, hmmmmmm? Pretty mad right? Well author must have dug the memory far enough down to be in the back of his mind. So when David shot Author as the dog and the memory jolted back to the front of his mind. He got so upset that he started to kill out of the game and when I say out of the game I think he was doing the same thing with the other kids but IN the game! And in one of the endings the dog gets shot .... more than needed. Making Author want to restart the entire temped of killing David. I don’t have much evidence but still.

if you really think about it, David is basically in an infinite loop of time. Now, even if the void is farther than space and time itself, we can clearly see that David (if the dog is his older self) kills himself and runs from the home, then as he gets older.. it's almost like he goes back to that same place and same time over and over again. Basically meaning this entire series is almost like a loop in time, space, and a mysterious void that has beings of some sort coming out of it and almost starting an apocalypse. Which could also tie into the game that may be coming out known as the "Hall Of The Machine King". This would basically mean that the whole story of "Hall Of The Machine King" could be an up-coming apocalypse, where humans and robot creatures from an unknown void fight for the universe itself. (This is all just a theory I made on the spot and thought it could mean something, I don't expect any of it to be real).

I think Arthur is David's father because we never heard of David's dad except in the pictures and we know that he cares about his family but for some reason he had to leave he could've died but still, anyways when David's dad heard of his wife's death he wanted revenge on the game devs who made duck season, so he applied a job for the game company and then betrayed them. It says "Welcome home" because he definitely hasn't been come to his home in a while. Edit: AND IF UR WONDERING "hEy, tHE dAd'S hAir iS bLoNde" well, Have you heard of hair dye?

Isn't it really fitting for the dog to be David as well ? A flash becoming the lightning making the flash situation that we will find out in the final game as the void creates himself/ destroys himself as David becomes the Pro-tagonist and not the Antagonist. Seems fitting especially taking in mind what the Devs responded to the first duck season episode

I like this theory for the most part, but you lose me when you get to the, "They're both the dog" theory. Those dad-centric clues from duck season definitely still have to be pointing somewhere, but what the Devs said about the original theory and everything the game says about cryptids make me think that the dog is not a human being. The dog is just a cryptid. A creature from the void. However, all the stuff about David wanting to go back and see if he can prevent all this from happening does sound kind of right. So I've been wondering all episode about something that hasn't been mentioned at all. Who is X? And what if the dog in this equation should be replaced with X? But hey, that's just a theory.
