About the game

Eternal Threads is a first-person, single-player problem-solving game that follows a narrative of time manipulation, choices, and consequences.

Tasked with correcting the corruption in the timestream, you're sent to May 2015 in the north of England, when six people died in a house fire. You can't just stop the fire, but must manipulate the choices made by the house's inhabitants in the week leading up to it, in order for everyone to survive the event.

You are free to explore the seven-day period before the fire. You can watch and change important events that occur throughout the week as many times and in any order as you like. Some decisions will have subtle effects on the timeline, shifting objects within the house or revealing hidden histories and secrets. Major changes, on the other hand, rewrite the timeline, changing preexisting events, adding new events, and even replacing others entirely.

You need to move through the timeline, changing decisions at different times throughout the week so that their effects interact and combine to ensure the survival of the six villagers.

However, they are not the only ones who have options. Each can be saved from the fire in a variety of ways, and each outcome has a profound effect on your life in the future. Will you choose to simply look for a quicker and simpler solution or try to find the best possible outcome for everyone?

In the end, it's all about choices and consequences.

Highlights

Choose how you want to follow the game's narrative:

  • The complete narrative involves six main characters throughout various decisions made in multiple timelines, and you can follow them as you wish.
  • You can focus on one character's story at a time, following your choices across multiple timelines, and then go back and follow another character.
  • You can follow the story like a forensic detective, check the endings and then work the timeline from the end to the beginning, essentially looking at the effects and then determining the cause.
  • Or you can just watch in chronological order, viewing the timeline if you prefer as you observe and change the decisions made by the characters throughout the week.

Observe and change things as often as you like:

  • Can't remember exactly what happened at an event? Changed a decision and don't know if you like the consequences? No problems. Just go back on the timeline, watch and change what you want, when you want, as many times as you want.

Change the past to change the future:

  • If you set up a temporary home base within hours of the fire, you'll gain a unique perspective on events. As you check the timeline, the events of the past will play out before you in a ghostly air, with smoke and fire damage to the house answering constant requests for what's to come. Also, by manipulating the past, you can affect the environment around you, which will reflect the changes that have occurred. New objects will appear, while others will change places within the house, and the contents inside the rooms can change considerably as you alter the past.
