There is only one way to get a Game Over in the entire game: during the sequence where Joey is heading for the Attic after receiving the Attic Key, the Game Over can occur if the player takes too long, clicks on too many objects, or switches back over to Jude. If any of these things happen, a cutscene plays showing Joey being attacked and eaten by the monsters. Fittingly, the track that plays during this is called "A Singular Peril", due to being the only part of the game where it's possible to outright fail.
