Walkthrough Eternal Threads - how to save all tenants, open the safe, open all doors and get the true ending

Eternal Threads is a first-person puzzle game. You have to restore the events of the past and try to save six residents of a small house in England. In this guide, we will tell you how to find the keys and passwords, open all the doors, save the tenants and get the best ending in the game.

How to play Eternal Threads. Gameplay Tips

You play as a certain "Forty-Third", a man from the future, who must prevent the death of six people. The gameplay boils down to the fact that you need to view the events of the past and change them, find the keys to locked doors and discover the secrets of the residents of the house.

There are two game modes in Eternal Threads:

  1. Normal: in this mode, all 197 events are available to you, of which 54 are decisions.
  2. Simplified: This mode will not allow you to unlock all the events and achieve the best ending but is suitable for those who want to quickly learn the history of the residents.

If you want to explore the house completely, find all the secrets, and unlock the true ending, then we recommend choosing the Normal mode. We have also prepared some tips for those who are going to go through Eternal Threads on their own.

  1. Do not try to influence events at the beginning of the game. You may think that choosing alternative options will necessarily lead to a positive ending, but this is not so. Each significant event is marked on the timeline with a separate icon, to which other events are attached. It makes no sense to go a few days ahead to track the changes. You will just get confused.
  2. Listen carefully to the dialogues and pay attention to the actions of the characters. Some scenes in the game do not affect anything, but you can learn useful information from the dialogues. For example, where the keys to the doors and other items are kept.
  3. Explore the rooms after each decision. Depending on your decisions, the environment will constantly change. For example, at the beginning of the passage, you will find the phones of the dead where they were during the fire. As the future changes, mobile devices will disappear and reappear elsewhere. The same applies to voice and text messages on tenants' smartphones.
  4. Unlock all available events. Each individual event can help access important decisions that will change the course of history. When most events are available, return to meaningful decisions and choose alternatives. To save time, this can be done right on the timeline.

How to save all the tenants, provide them with an optimal future and get the best ending

Important: some of the decisions below can be changed, but still get a better ending. In this case, you will have to look for other events and make additional decisions. We marked all important forks in red.

You have to change the fate of six tenants:

  1. Raquel: Jenny's student and friend. As a child, in front of Raquel's eyes, a drunk driver hit her friend Megan to death. She cannot recover from this even after two decades.
  2. Thomas: The owner of the house, who barely makes ends meet, since all the funds go-to medicines for his sick mother.
  3. Linda: Neela's sister decided to leave her husband and live separately.
  4. Neil: Linda's brother is prone to aggression and is often out of control of his emotions.
  5. Jenny: Ben's wife finds out about the pregnancy, but can't bring herself to tell her husband about it.
  6. Ben: A doctor by profession, Ben sends a request for a job in the Third World. When a positive answer comes to him, he does not know how to tell his wife about it.
You should achieve the following results:

  • Raquel let go of her painful memories and parted ways with the doll. If this is not achieved, Tom will not be able to visit his mother and will crash down the stairs to the basement right before the fire. Further, Raquel can die in her room or escape with Jenny. Either way, this is a bad ending;
  • Tom cut off all ties with Miranda, became close friends with Raquel, and visited his mother on the day of the fire;
  • Neal must realize the reason for his anger and call his parents on the eve of the fire. Otherwise, he will get drunk and suffocate in his room. On the eve of the fire, Neal cannot go to bed;
  • Linda listened to Raquel's advice that she needed to talk her husband into changing. She slept with Thomas - in the future, this will save the life of Neal;
  • Ben told Jenny about the job offer. Jenny must not reveal her pregnancy for the rest of the game. Before the fire, there will be a final choice of when to do this. Ben and Jenny will stay at home and make love, which will save their lives and save their relationship.
All important choices for getting the best ending:

  1. The fate of the parrot. This decision will not affect Thomas' future. If you decide to leave the parrot at home, it will die in a fire.
  2. We are no longer in Kansas. This decision will not affect Linda's future. The option "Linda was shown her room, and she agreed that Tom should clean it up a bit" will result in the guitar being in the basement and you will be able to find out the last name of the previous guest.
  3. Is there a mail? It's a minor decision that won't affect Ben and Jenny's future. In the future, you can fix it with other forks.
