2021.10.17 04:29 DOSMan746 What Were Sally's True Motives? An Analysis of The Surge (Part 2)
Here's the next installment of my analysis of The Surge. This time I'm focusing on Sally and her motives. Once again, I have some new discoveries to present that help us answer lingering questions about the events surrounding the surge.
If you missed the first part, you can read it here: https://www.reddit.com/thesurgegame/comments/puwx6i/what_was_the_surge_an_analysis/
But without further ado, let's get to it.
Sally is certainly an AI, as confirmed by her server in the server room and the "Turing Test" achievement unlocked by finding it. But her motives have remained unclear. Why does she want to get Warren to the boardroom? Is she benevolent or malevolent? Does she try to help Hayes or hurt him?
Key to answering these question is holding on to what we know about the surge and the boardroom. (see Part 1 linked above).
The Rogue Process attacked the board, and the whole CREO network. This paused the Utopia vote and initiated the failsafe protocols which locked down the boardroom and activated security. From the Rogue Process's perspective, however, this was only a temporary solution. Its aim is to launch Utopia. But to do this it needed to have the vote complete and complete in its favor.
Accessing the boardroom would be the first step toward this. After this, it would need either to move the cursor on Hayes's screen from no to yes and vote, passing the Utopia project 5 to 3, or force the retraction of his vote option, making the final vote 4 to 3 in favor of Utopia.
When we keep this is mind, it seems rather sensible to assume that Sally would be the RP's means to this end. She goads the playeWarren to unlock the board throughout the game. It is also revealed that she has rather ruthlessly recruited at least two others for the same purpose (Mallory and someone else mentioned by her in her audiologs). When Warren finally achieves this, the immediate consequence is the death of Hayes at Sally's hands, the withdrawal of his vote option, and the approval of Utopia. Which is exactly what the RP wants.
Someone might object here that the alignment between Sally and RP is only coincidental. Sally appears to be a medical AI and it is her duty to get to Hayes who has an outstanding request for medical assistance. Perhaps the fact that her goals serve the RP's is just the latter's good luck?
Once again, some subtle clues left by the developers help us out.
First, in one of the medbays, Sally mentions that 'something' is overwriting the system. This at the very least opens up the possibility that she is being overwritten too, that her program is compromised in some way and she is partly controlled by Rogue Process.
In the boardroom, however, we get real confirmation. And here’s again something new that I’ve found.
Everyone assumes that Sally is exclusively talking to Hayes in the boardroom scene (and briefly with Greene). But if you pay attention, there is someone else talking to her, and to whom she talks, but whom we can't hear.
At times, she turns away from Hayes to address this mystery other. And if you pay attention, you can tell she's also listening to it. She makes hand gestures that essentially say, 'yes, yes, I hear you, I know.' She also uses a different tone when speaking to this absent being--flat and matter-of-fact and in clear contrast with the motherly tone she uses when speaking directly to Hayes and Greene.
In other words, Sally appears to be caught between two masters, i.e., her original programing and someone else.
When Sally talks about how Warren proved "remarkably durable" compared to "the others," it is to this mystery presence that she speaks. She explains this in a way that makes it clear that whoever or whatever she is speaking to knows about what she's been up to and is in on the plan.
I don't think this unseen other could be anything but the Rogue Process. There's is just no one and nothing else with the corresponding motive and power to control Sally and to force her to do what she does.
Sally is evidently the instrument of Hayes's death. Her defibrillator makes his condition worse and seems to kill him. Which leaves Sally baffled and confused as to what she's doing.
The reason why, I would argue, and this fits with everything I've said so far, is that she is hacked and not entirely aware of what she is doing; there's a part of her that is a medical AI, and there's a part of her that is RP instrument.
As an aside, the sequel, while it doesn't offer much new insight into the first game, does provide some additional support to this hacking theory. In The Surge 2, Eli uses the Rogue Process to hack Guttenberg's AI-robot assistant, H.A.R.O.L.D., and turn him against his master.
But there's one more detail that helps substantiate this take. When Warren enters the boardroom, Hayes is supposed to be singing "3 Blind Mice." It's a bit odd that he does this though considering that at the same time he sings he can be heard grunting in pain.
The solution to this apparent incongruity comes, however, when we realize that it isn't really Hayes singing, but the Rogue Process.
The song is shown to be propagated by it over the network. Davey also sings it. He also asks himself, "Who are the three mice?" and this is obviously the devs prompting the player to ask the same thing.
Three blind mice? Would that not be the three people recruited by Sally to get to the board (Warren, Mallory, and the man seen by Mallory)? They are "blind" to what's really going on. They all ran after the "farmer's wife," that is Sally, and got their "tails" cut off in the process (two of them, anyway). Did you ever see such a sight in your life?
The being that sings this song knows what's going on behind the curtain and knows exactly what Sally has been up to.
Again, I don't see how this can be anything other than the Rogue Process. It hacked Sally and forced her to recruit people to remove the lockdown so that it could get into the boardroom and finish what it started. That's why her actions ultimately achieve what the RP wants, and that's why the RP knows what she's been up to.

Through the past few months I’ve been refining my music taste and experimenting with new genres. I’m looking for song/band suggestions that are similar to anything 70s-00s punk, rock, indie (think Franz Ferdinand, Metric, The Dandy Warhols, Oasis, etc)

Sadly, none of them provide multi-in M.2 slots.
Both of them work with new expansion unit DX1222, and the port now looks like miniSAS.
