There are two endings in this game and each will give you a trophy. You unlock the true end by beating the elevator quickly. If you get an ending where it leads to the start of the game, then that’s the normal ending. If you get something else, it’s the true ending. If you made a save at the control panel and got the true ending, just let the game sit, then finish. If you didn’t get the true ending and can’t with the save, just redo the level. Since you know all the puzzles, it should be fast.
