The Crooked Man is a supernatural horror game made by Uri. This is the first installment in the Strange Man series.
David Hoover is a troubled young man that recently just moved into a new apartment. After his friends leave (Paul and Marion Martin) David decides to go to sleep. But he wakes up in the middle of the night hearing strange noises. As this continues he soon finds a note, from the previous person who lived there. David travels around to find this owner. But instead he finds The Crooked Man.
Like its predecessor, there are multiple endings for the player to choose.
- Bad End 1: "What a Sissy"
If David decides to console Sissi, he gives her her treasured box and she promptly breaks the box to "forget" the one that gave her it. As they finish saying their goodbyes, the door behind Sissi opens and she gets dragged in. After hearing her scream for 20 seconds, David runs to the door, pounding it trying to get the Crooked man to stop killing her. Suddenly her screaming stops and blood gushes from under the door all over the stairs. David backs away in shock and the door opens again. The Crooked Man comes out to David and kills him.
- Bad End 2: "Never, Never Give Up"
If David tells D that he shouldn't give up on his dreams, D, in a moment of rage, stabs David in the chest. Just as D is about to leave the room, the Crooked Man enters and kills him. As David bleeds out, D walks over and tells him that "It wasn't me. It was you. You killed him, and yourself... David." He then exits the room, and David bleeds to death.
- Bad End 3: "Goodbye, My Friend"
If Paul tries to persuade a possessed David not to commit suicide, he will fail, and David will state that no one understands him. David then shoots himself in the head.
- Bad End 4: "It's Not your Fault, David"
If Paul decides to take the gun from David, the two struggle and David accidentally shoots Paul to death. David later comes back to his senses, realizes what he did and takes his own life.
- Good End: "Bye, Bye, Blackbird"
If David successfully defeats the Crooked Man in the final stage, he has a conversation with the spirit of Duke (the Crooked Man when he was a human). After it passes on, David returns to his normal life and even returns back with his girlfriend. The epilogue shows that he isn't has moved on from his depression and that he periodically visits Duke's grave.
