Sorry its late everyone I was waiting all night for this to upload. Here is a complete video walk through of how to achieve this ending. This ending will also net you A LOT of the other achievements in the DLC. It also shows where all the notes and pictures are. It shows how to assemble the puzzle using the pictures. It has how to do the Serpent achievement and how to view all the story for red riding hood. It shows how to complete the DLC following only one path.

I used my partners account to do this as when I played this through on Beth Bear it took me 5/6 playthroughs to get all the achievements. I wanted to get as many of the DLC achievements to pop as possible in one go.

Follow my video exactly to achieve the Tree and the apple ending. I really hope this helps everyone!



Here are some things to keep in mind when attempting to achieve this ending:

- Follow Fathers Path all the way through the DLC (Don't use mothers)

- In all memories show the father in a positive light
Let the Dog out in the kitchen
Get the dog off the sofa
When the painter paints you make sure you listen and stay focused on him
Take the piano sheet music when the painter is playing piano (you will see it glowing white)
When in the closet lock yourself in
Play the phonograph for the mother
When playing the piano the mother will eventually tell you to get crayons, use the shapes on the music sheet to play the tune to your fathers approval
When given the option to paint or use a crayon in the Art studio you can use the crayon to go and do the stuff in that world e.g. Red riding hood story achievement and Slaying the Serpent BUT end it in the painters world not the crayon world
In the section where you collect three piece of paper with the wife's face view it after finding the pieces

- Going down all the fathers paths seems to have a more positive impact on the Items you view (So I believe you can still pick the items up this doesn't impact the ending)

- I made sure I had all the Pictures

- I made sure I had all the notes

- I viewed all the the Red Riding Hood Story

- Slayed the Serpent

-Once memories are complete don't end the game use all the pictures you have found place them on the wall in the studio. You have to then compete a puzzle sequence, when the puzzle is worked out correctly it forms a large picture of your face. Simply shine the flash light on it to reveal a map (this takes a second or two) turn around where you see a shelf which you can interact with. Do this and then you will achieve the ending.

EDIT: Some people have experienced a glitch whilst doing this particular ending for a way around this simply do the following:

If you encounte the picture issue whereby the top middle one glitched out and went black and would not load into the map with the flashlight off.

quit to main menu then continue, head straight back to the puzzle of my face. At first nothing showed but once I waited a minute or 2 the rat illimination DID show and then showed the map and I was able to get the achievement. This video 100% works, it's just the rat face/map trigger of the puzzle pieces can be a little glitchy.

Also, as AP 8T8 said, this ending and the father ending can be stacked together as you can quit to the main menu as soon as "the tree and the apple" achievements pops, continue back in and then go and open the door for the "let bygones be bygones ending", just did the exact same thing!
