Is it really so confusing?
I don't think so.
Anyway here is an overview of the "realities" so far:
Bsta at the beginning looks like it is a story about some guy doing things. We have B in a kind of realistic world.
There are some things like the name input or the narration not agreeing with "our" actions which could suggest there also could be a level above this story.
But nothing is shown yet.
Ok so B talks with some people online, then goes outside, takes his bike and goes to check something but gets two flat tires, talks by phone and starts fixing the bike.
At this point we get the possibility to leave B alone and "be" someone else.
This part is the KXA doing stuff in a rather normal world. The interface is still being a little meta sometimes but nothing big yet.
KXA leaves the room and goes by car with FTH. In the car she reads 2 fragments of her story about Old Joe and Young Joe. For a few frames we're one level deeper. We're in the Old Joe and Young Joe story.
The story is interrupted by a phone call from B which confirms that KXA's story and B's stoey are the same reality.
They realise they have to meet B and change their plan slightly.
And now something important happens:
We see the tape interface being used to go forward with the story.
So it confirms that there exists a reality (with the tape interface) which contains the story of B in it.
They meet, KXA and B go look around. They cross the gate, then they notice a building, go inside and accidently activate something.
Somewhere near this point BSTA gives up and stops pretending to be what it isn't.
They get relocated, together with the whole building. Even the narrator doesn't know where they are.
We get the chance to 'be' fth now but we don't.
So the narrator goes to find out. We're left alone.
At this point we're again in the high level world.
We play a game recommended by the narrator "Skalniacy Adventures 3: Robotic Madness"
For some frames we're in the gameworld.
After doing some things a s a robot in the game we crash the game and stop playing it.
Again in tape interface room. We play with the interface and see the "other side of the story":
We're now in the story of a photorealistic guy drawing his story.
We realise what it is and we want out of this.
Something interesting happens:
Our commands to take the tape out and reverse it are performed in two realities at the same time:
The guy reverses a tape in his world while we do the same in ours.
We're out of that story and in the room again.
Narrator returns and uses a software tool from a floppy disk to locate B and KXA.
(and also he notices we unaligned the tape buit we don't admit it...)
With B and KXA found their story can resume.
They are in a completely different place now. Soon they realise what it is and panic begins.
