    Petscop is the biggest mystery in gaming that you can't play. We've talked a lot about this non-game. Throughout our other theories we've uncovered who our cast of characters are, what this game actually is, and more. Yet there are still so many unanswered questions. Today, Theorists, we are going to tackle not one but TWO of these mysteries. Hold on to your screens, this is going to get DARK!

    So you lied at the beginning, because both doors were shown at the same angle yet 1 was open and 1 was closed.

    I'm bad with riddles, but I'll give it a shot. For a door to be open without it being opened it would have to be an empty door frame after the door itself is removed. That's my (most likely wrong) guess.

    Mabye the reason why marvin is forcing kids to play the piano, is because mabye tiara knew how to play the piano, and marvin may have known that she played a sertrn song. That's why any kid who could have played the song right could have been reborn into tiara. This theory may or may not be right. I'll have to look into it, but this would kinda explain why marvin would make his victims play the piano.

  • That person sitting over there

    This game is a bit disturbing for me. Yeah it is for everyone, but for me... very disturbing. My dads name is Marvin. It makes me a little uneasy when I watch these theories. I don’t see my dad that much due to him not married to my mom, they never were married. Also, he likes music. He was acting strange when I last saw him and I haven’t heard from him, or heard about him in a year. When I was just a baby, him and my mom split. I thought I’d throw this in for fun

    I found a Google group that seems to be directly linked with Petscop. I tried posting a link to the Petscop Reddit and it was immediately removed by the mods. The Google group was created by a man named "Reverend Paul", as a group dedicated to the discussion of "rebirthing". The first entry is dated "1/10/98", but when you open it, "Reverend Paul" exclaims that the group was proposed on 12/97. Two posts later, Paul makes a 2nd post including this line which heavily reminded me of Petscop "This newsgroup is also a Christmas present to the founder of Rebirthing, Leonard Orr, Archarya Raja." Meaning it was originally created on Christmas day of 1997, which was referenced in the "about" section of the Petscop channel itself. This group has remained active, with its most recent post being made in 2018.
    When I noticed my post had been ghosted by the mods on the Petscop Reddit, I messaged them to ask why, and this was their response: "Hi, your post has been removed due to encroaching at rules 2 and 8. We had some rather nasty incidents that started like this, and we'd rather avoid another one. Also, as far as I can tell, similarities between that group and the show are just coincidental"
    This doesn't appear to be "coincidental" to me, at all. There's WAY too much identical info here. But I don't know anyone in the community and obviously the mods aren't interested in allowing this information to become public. So here's the link, for anyone interested in digging deeper. There's more info posted there over the last 2 decades than I could decipher on my own:!forum/alt.metaphysics.rebirthing

    Maybe this is obvious but the "placeholder" platform like object that is in the place of the windmill, could be the bottom of the windmill model clipping through the ground plane to the opposite side of the plane. When he goes down the stairs he is going to the other side of the plane? And its like everything else on the plane is a mirrored image of the normal side, mirroring appears a lot, huh?
