You can screw up chapter one and if you do 95% of the rest correctly, you're alright.
Me Nov 13 @ 5:13am 
So what percent of achievements do you need to trigger one ending or the other?
Fatrocka64 Aug 28 @ 4:18pm 
I wish I can do the self portrait ending
ArtemisDSilverstone Aug 3 @ 12:03pm 
Can you do it with the inheritance DLC too? Please?

In your tab ''collectibles - chapter 6''

The Rat Drawing #16 | Room 17 - on left side
Is before Whisper #26 | Room 16 (Bathroom) | Knife

Making it Room 15 and not 17

By following this I had to reload chapter 6 to get the last rat drawing

Might be good to corrige that for other players to avoid that

Hey there I can't get the 'Finishing Touch' achievement. What do I have to do to unlock this one? Maybe it is buggy ?! Can someone give some advice? Thx
Kaitain Nov 18, 2020 @ 8:07am 
Thank you! Your videos helped me a lot. Finally I got self portrait and wife and child endings.
jhc24 Nov 13, 2020 @ 3:52pm 
@wow There is no such limitation on saves needing to be changed for getting each ending (at least not now) as I was able to get all 3 endings by starting from chapter 1 in the same save. The devs probably fixed it.
MrBlackandWhite Nov 3, 2020 @ 7:02am 
I remember that at the house of the artist, next to his bedroom there was a locked door with blood on it...is there a way to open that door? Or it's basicaly imposible?
