I might be dumb... but can someone explain ending 3 : the creature ending?

Hi there! I'm not sure what exactly was confusing, so forgive me if I'm over explaining. I suppose I should warn for spoilers here.
Ending 3: the Creature Ending is called as such because the monsters win in this situation. The idea behind it is that while you were pacifistic, the monsters aren't necessarily aligned with your methods. The monsters never explain what will happen when the barrier comes down, just that you're helping them get back into the village. They're taking their home back, just through violence. Hope you enjoyed playing!
Beautifully drawn style and the twist to the "pacifist" ending is great. Solid stuff!
quite difficult when they deal more damage than you can heal. rated 5 stars :)
