After you beat night 5, you get a cutscene of the Disaster Causer falling to his knees and he says " Y-you.... have stopped me... * Sighs* Alright I will confess... I was the one who caused all of this to happen. I hated this place a long time ago. I was a human who first entered below the sea.. everybody is either a moron or a jerk there.. so when I got into an accident, I became this and ended up creating a disaster. And anyone who survived it, will be killed by the hopeless creatures who want others to suffer with them... so i'm sorry, but I will try to reverse it if I can.. but so far, I can't. And good luck and hope that you survive against these creatures long enough. I will try to find a way... I will fix this" He then disappears and you turn around and see Squiggles looking completely normal, sleeping and the game ends.
This is one of the games where you play as a fish character.
The ending might confirm a sequel to the game.
