Chapter 0 - It Was Good
In a distant land lies underground machines, created by the unknown; capable of creating life forms. These machines have been creating creatures known as teletubbies for hundreds of years. The machines worked in a secret underground lair. One of their creations known as the "teletubby guardian", who had white fur; was designed to monitor a test group of four teletubbies in secret. They were known as "Tinky winky, Dipsy, Laa Laa and Po". The four teletubbies lived together in a dome-like home within a boxed landscape known as the "main land". The group were like hampsters in a cage, not knowing that they were being monitored within a fixed area. They also lived with a artificial intelligent machine known as "Noo Noo". The teletubby guardian monitored the groups behavior and documented it into a database, ensured the groups health and also had to ensure that the group did not leave the area. Over the years the guardian grew a strong bond with the group, enjoying watching over them, despite the group not knowing of the guardians existence. One day, things went horribly wrong.
The player controls Po. The beginning starts with a dialogue between her and Noo Noo, who left The House to look for her. Later, the player will interact with her friends and will make Tubby Custard for each of them.
During Night, Tinky Winky was behaving strangely and destroyed the Custard Machine before leaving The House. Po, who wasn't able to sleep, witnessed the scene and have two choices.
- Waking the others: She wakes Laa-Laa and Dipsy and tells to them what happened. Laa-Laa will help Po at searching Tinky Winky, while Dipsy will stay in The House, in case he comes back.
- Searching Tinky Winky alone: She doesn't wake the others and goes outside alone.
She finally found Tinky Winky at the beach (with Laa-Laa's corpse lying on the ground, if Po decided to wake her) and the latter turn back, revealing his changed face while screaming loudly. Po, scared, runs towards The House, then discovered that Dipsy has been killed as well (and Laa-Laa having disappeared, if she decided to not wake her). She then tries to escape Tinky Winky in the nature but gets caught at the feet of a big tree.
Chapter 1 - A New Day
It has begun, Tinky Winky has killed Po and the rest of his friends. You believe that the custards are responsible for his attacks. You use your computer in an attempt to contact other tubbies at the satellite station, but with no success. Without any delay you prepare a plan to find all of the infected custards before travelling to the satellite station for help. It's up to you to find out the truth.
After have witnessed the incident, The Guardian tries to contact the Satellite Station, without success, and have no choice but to reach it on foot. Since it's night, he decides to grab his night-vision camera by unlocking the storage room door, but a power outage happens just after inside his lair, and three New Borns come from nowhere. He must leave the lair without being spotted by any of these.
Once outside, The Guardian collects the few custards that are scattered around the land, while being sure to avoid Tinky Winky, who is still roaming around. He will eventually find Po, hanged on the tree in her last known location. After have collected 4 custards, The Guardian will find Tinky Winky standing in front of the last custard.
The sky starts to be stormy, the rain falls and the custard moves towards Tinky Winky, having contact with him. Soon later, Tinky Winky became a huge and muscular creature and directly chases The Guardian, who has two choices:
Chapter 2 - The Journey
At the last custard location you encountered Tinky Winky. He transformed into a monster right before your eyes and tried to kill you. You were able to escape to the cave. From there you must travel through maze-like corridors to get to the outskirts. Once you're at the outskirts, you'll find the satellite station.
The Guardian entered the cave to escape Tinky Winky who is not able to enter it. He is now in a labyrinthine cave and must find the exit, but it is not easy since the place has a lot of dead-ends and pits. On his way, he will eventually find notes on the ground, written by an experimented teletubbie. However, The Guardian is not alone in this cave, and will notice it when a big brown teletubbie will start to chase him.
After having escaped him, the brown teletubbie is now looking for him and The Guardian must try to find the exit without being spotted. Near the end, The Guardian meets the brown teletubbie one more time, but successfully escaped him for good, finding the exit at the same time.
At the last custard location you encountered Tinky Winky. He transformed into a monster right before your eyes and tried to kill you. You were able to escape to the mountains. The mountains strech out for miles, they are cold and almost inhabitable. You must travel through them and get to the outskirts. You'll be able to find the satellite station from there.
The Guardian entered the mountains to escape Tinky Winky who probably gave up. He is now walking in a cold and snowy landscape and hears a voice from far away. By approaching the voices, a big silhouette charges him and knocks him out. He is taken away by this creature that won't answer him, and wake up surrounded by blood, meat and organs.
Not far from this area, The Guardian finds a camp fire and a mechanical humanoid cutting woods. By talking with the security droid, The Guardian learn that it is cutting woods for it's master and must cook him before dawn. Not wanting to become food, The Guardian leaves but is soon later chased by "The Master", yet he escapes it and finds the gate leading to the outskirts.
After going to the cave or the mountains, The Guardian finally reached the Teletubby Outskirts and will find Laa-Laa:
- If Po woke up her during Chapter 0: Laa-Laa got killed by Tinky Winky the last night, and became a monster as well, but became blind, since Tinky Winky scratched out her eyes. The Guardian will have to collect the eight custards that are scattered around while avoiding her. Once finished, Laa-Laa blocks the path that leads to the exit and The Guardian must find a way to get rid of her. He finds it by launching a rock at a pillar, attracting Laa-Laa and making her attack the pillar, which makes the pillars fall on her. From this, The Guardian have the choice to kill or spare her.
- If Po didn't wake her: Laa-Laa is found normal and alive. The Guardian, disturbed, approaches her but the latter is scared of him as he is an unknown person in her knowledge. A discussion occurs between the two characters and Laa-Laa, despite her suffering, tries to follow The Guardian. Once at the exit, Laa-Laa begins to weaken and The Guardian will have the choice to put her out of misery or spare her.
Chapter 3 - Run Away
You've traveled a long way, You escaped those creatures at the Secret Lair. You ran away from Tinky Winky's new phase at the main land. You made your way through the Outskirts and encountered Laa Laa. But after all that's happened so far, you're still alive. At last, you arrive at the Satellite Station.
The Guardian finally reaches the Satellite Station and enters it, just to find an empty place with the corpses of blue teletubbies. He then learns that a green headless monster entered the building and killed everyone, by talking with the sole survivor of the attack: Ron. The Guardian must find a way to access the Secret Center to call the Military but needs a key-card to open the door, and so he has to go further in the building, while Ron is killed by the monster he mentioned. Before finding the key-card, The Guardian has hallucinations and starts to see Tinky Winky, Laa-Laa and Po.
He only hallucinates Dipsy before finding what he became: a headless being holding a chainsaw, responsible of the satellite station massacre. The Guardian returns at the entrance to attract him towards the security laser that will kill him after contact. The Guardian then takes his chainsaw in case he needs it and continues his way to the Secret Center.
By entering it, The Guardian gets disturbed by Noo Noo's presence. The latter reveals that he was the one behind the infection, having infected the custards to make the teletubbies "better". No matter what the player's choices are, Noo Noo underestimates The Guardian by considering him being "too weak" and sends The Announcer to kill him. A fight then occurs between The Guardian and the giant fighting robot, and the white teletubbie wins the battle and calls the Military.
The Guardian then catches up with Noo Noo at the entrance of the building. The latter reveals that he also put his virus into the Teletubby Creation Machine and created an army of New Borns. The player has 2 choices: accept to help Noo Noo in his evil plan, or refuse it.
If The Guardian refuse, Noo Noo will send Po to kill him. A fight then occurs between the two teletubbies.
- If The Guardian fails: Po will deal a final blow at The Guardian and then escape with Noo Noo. Latter, the Military arrive and discover the white teletubbie's corpse. Soon later, the New Borns arrive and presumably kill all of the soldiers. Bad Ending
- If The Guardian wins: Po is defeated, Noo Noo has no more issues, it was his last chance. The Guardian, merciless towards the vacuum cleaner and what he's done, destroys him with the chainsaw. The Military then arrives and a short discussion occurs between The Guardian and the Sergeant just before the New Borns appear. Good Ending
If The Guardian accepts, Noo Noo will invite him to go to the Custard Facility, where his entire plan started and will soon be completed. The Guardian meets Po at the same time. Noo Noo says to him that he just has to eat a custard to become an infected at his turn.
- If The Guardian accept: Po gives him the custard, which transforms him into what Noo Noo will call "the greatest reborn" and possibly the most dangerous and powerful of the infected teletubbies. Evil Ending
- If The Guardian refuse: Po cuts his legs and pushes him in the Custard Main Supply, which will turn him into an infected. However, he lost his legs in the fall. Regretful Ending
Chapter 4 - Meltdown
Three months after Multiplayer, The Guardian (or White, as he is called), SGT. Miles and Anne have returned to the Machine to try and destroy it. Miles asks White to see if the hallway leads to the machine. Once he has entered the hallway the gates close on him. He then hallucinates Shadow Tubbie jumping on him and taking him to Shadow Tubbie's realm where he suddenly awakens after Miles and Anne open the gate and find him hallucinating. White then tries to open the door on the left side which leads to the machine but it is locked. He asks Anne and Miles to see if they have anything he can lockpick the door with. Miles gives White his knife and tells him to stop bothering himself. White then also finds a pick he can use with the knife to open the door, he then opens the door. While walking down the stairs, White experiences another hallucination but this time of Tinky Winky. He is then transported back into the Shadow Tubbie's realm but it resembles the staircase he was walking down. Next, White experiences a Headless Dipsy hallucination which makes the stairway look like the Satellite Station. White then has another hallucination of Laa-Laa and the stairway transforms into looking like the Cave. Finally, he has an hallucination of Po but in her ST II form and is then returned to sanity. White then goes down a few hallways leading to the machine where Miles and Anne are already there and then passes out. After ten minuites (in-game time), he wakes up. White then attempts to use Tobby's Keycard to use the machine's terminal but Tobby did not have enough permissions so it failed. Miles then gets an axe to start destroying the machine but White stops him and asks him if he is curious on how it works. Miles and Anne explain to White about the Machine:
It all started with humans. A huge epidemy happened, and it was killing most of the population. Reproducing wasn't an option anymore. People would just die before they were even born. The human race was so desperate to maintain their species, they tried what they thought impossible. They created a machine to create more humans. However, the machine didn't come out as expected. The anatomy of these artifical humans was different. Their skin was furry and they had televisions in their bellies. They had no fingers in their hands. They had no toes in their feet.
That's us, right?
Yes, that's correct. The humans failed on their experiments, but we were the closest thing to humans they could create. They named our species "Teletubbies", due to the televisions in our stomachs. Our race didn't have access to the machine, but we still tried to recreate our race in case of extinction. To difference the subjects from our race, they added antennas in their heads.
Miles then goes on to destroy the machine and White has two options:
- Let Miles destroy the Machine (doing nothing)
- Stop Miles from destroying the Machine (saying "Wait")
Letting Miles destroy the Machine
If White doesn't do anything, Miles will destroy the Machine. The paths then meet together.
Stopping Miles from destroying the Machine
White will say that they could use the machine to repopulate the world after the incident is done with and Anne agrees with him but Miles destroys it anyway. The paths then meet back together.
White and Miles then get into a fight because Miles tells him to go somewhere else as he thinks White is useless. It will then be said that the newborns have arrived.
