Hey Guys. So basically this achievement is for witnessing all the endings. The game has a total of three. These include the Wife ending, Self Portrait ending and the Wife and Child ending. I have made videos for all three. By following these three videos you can pretty much get the full 1000G with the exception of maybe one or two achievements.

You can do the endings in any order. However I would recommend doing the Self Portrait one first to get all the collectibles out of the way this includes Rat drawings and Mementos. Once these have been picked up they stay collected and you don't have to pick them up in other playthroughs. Next I recommend doing the normal wife ending followed by the wife and child ending last. You don't have to do them in this order but it does make it a bit easier in my opinion

IMPORTANT READ BEFORE VIDEOS

With the Wife and Wife and child endings I don't pick up any Rat Drawings or Mementos as I had already collected them in the Self Portrait ending.





IN THE SELF PORTRAIT PLAYTHROUGH I MAKE A FEW MISTAKES AND QUIT OUT INTO THE MAIN MENU TWICE THEN CONTINUE FOLLOW THE VIDEO EXACTLY INCLUDING BACKING OUT LIKE I DID FOR THE ENDING!!!!!


Here are written guides for each one (Thanks to YAZITE for confirming these!!!!)

Self-portrait ending (the selfish ending):

This is achieved for essentially being selfish throughout the game. Ignoring your family and focusing on your paintings.
- Deathless run
- Stare at paintings frequently
- Follow rats whenever possible
- Interacting with only story related items OR items relating to your selfish personality (crooked glasses is an example)
- Possibly achieved for going below the neutral ending.

Wife ending (neutral ending):

This is confirmed to be the neutral (loop) ending and is achieved for gaining a neutral number of points in relation to the other two endings.

Wife and child ending (family/regretful ending):

- Throughout the game you should ignore anything relating to your selfish past (except story objects of course)
- Pick up items relating to your wife
- Approach your wife at EVERY encounter and "embrace" her
- Ignore rats and paintings as much as possible
- During the child chapter, approach the child in the red hall rather than back away

Wife and Child Ending in more detail!!!!!

-Prologue: run straight upstairs, grab key, back downstairs to unlock the studio

-Chapter 1: hairbrush on windowsill to the right (early on in chapter, sort of easy to miss)

-Chapter 2: piano notes in room right across from small room with key; scary baby chest by creepy window; violin in closet in vinyl room

-Chapter 3: room that appears behind you after looking at it through a window has a calendar in the left top drawer, turn on lamp in next room; library room turn on lamp in the corner next to small table with tobacco pipe on it and push ladder to get key and unlock upstairs door; basement staircase turn on light

-Chapter 4: note on floor from fire horse room; birthday hat on teddy bear; kids shoes in bow room; break mirror in vanity mirror room (open two drawers); checkers puzzle (beating heart); out of apples note in top right drawer under the beating heart on wall; feed fake cat with fruit on same table; walk under chairs death; open cupboard in floating crayon room; doll hallway near the end look through window on the right at carousel outside; pick up perfume on windowsill; look at creepy kid's picture in pool of blood door/room right after perfume; kid's room interact with jack in the box and picture in same dresser

-Chapter 5: Die in flashing lights wife hallway with item on floor next to candle (do not pick up item); "don't look back" jump scare death; pull chain three times; fold up mirror on windowsill, go in other blood pool room right after; go into room with wife in floor right after that, exit and then go back inside to get that death; phone numbers in order, 363, 853, 354

-Chapter 6: Die in yellow hallway, "each mistake a pitfall" death (very easy to miss, after you drop down door on the floor, look straight ahead at the only exit while walking backwards); jump into picture pit without pulling up pictures; bed on fire room and bandages; necklace on windowsill, walk into area next to it, then walk into wife's room then look at everything in room; push wheelchair as far as it goes; knife in bathroom

-Ending sequence, note in child's room area on floor; secret safe code (hard to decipher what the actual code is on the vid but starting at 0 if you move the dial counterclockwise from 10 to 20 to 30 to 40, then from 40 go clockwise to 30, then to 20 and the safe should open) then go to stairs and watch them collapse; light tri candles with little floating house next to it in checkers room

(CREDIT FOR THE WRITTEN PART OF THE WIFE AND CHILD ENDING GOES TO UNDEAD SHROOM) Thank you for taking what I did in my video and translating it to written text

Danny Seattle Followed through the video step by step, but got the wife ending instead. My collectibles reset somehow when I started this play through, so there might be something to that as this should have been the last ending I needed with 100% collectibles. Did the walk through not trigger the wife and child for anyone else?
Posted by Danny Seattle on 22 Feb 16 at 01:08
CompanyOfWolves Can anyone confirm if self-portrait really needs the rat drawings? I missed one on a play through and unsure if I need to restart. That stuff stays collected even on a new game so if related to an ending wouldn't that block other endings?
Posted by CompanyOfWolves on 22 Feb 16 at 01:32
Jzarp43 @Danny Seattle, I tried this on my first playthrough and I just got the wife. SO you must need all collectibles to unlock the wife and child. I can confirm that you will not get the wife and Child on your first playthrough
Posted by Jzarp43 on 22 Feb 16 at 02:01
Zeniun Thank you miss, was able to achieve the wife and child portrait by following your every move. most appreciated!
Posted by Zeniun on 22 Feb 16 at 03:51
RedmptionDenied Got the rat code instead of the dog, probably looking down too much at the rat while watching the guide, but still did everything else the same and got the wife/child ending no problem. Awesome guide. Also confirming this was my 3rd playthrough and already had all the collectibles.
Posted by RedmptionDenied on 22 Feb 16 at 07:05
xx Kenshira xx Fresh save, 0 collectibles [no Mementos in the book, no rat drawings on the wall], i got the wife and child ending, following this video, so i can confirm that you don't need to have collectibles, and can be done on your 1st run.
Posted by xx Kenshira xx on 22 Feb 16 at 07:54
CompanyOfWolves Can confirm that I got the self-portrait ending without getting all the rat drawings. I suspect endings may be connected to just the spoken word items as they never disappear. I had Wife for a 2nd time but had forgotten the necklace in chapter six, quit out and started from beginning of the chapter. Interacted with all objects that trigger dialogue and then got the self -portrait.

ImaginaryRuins Git the Wife & Child ending following the video! Nice!
Posted by ImaginaryRuins on 22 Feb 16 at 17:01
Lyco499 Thank you!! Seriously, thank you! I followed your video exactly and finally got the wife and child ending. The difference between your video and my last run is so tiny, it's ridiculous (in my last run, I did everything exactly the same, except I also picked up the sketch of the wife that's on the back of the painting that gets flung against a wall).
Posted by Lyco499 on 22 Feb 16 at 21:44
Adho Excellent, the wife and child video guide worked for me. Thank you!
I thought I might of screwed up by accidentally picking up the note in the room opposite the one with piano music sheets, but I got the ending I needed at end. Makes me wonder what the actual criteria is for this ending.
Posted by Adho on 22 Feb 16 at 23:09
Undead Shroom For those who basically know where the all the items in the game are and who don't want to sit through the video and watch yet ANOTHER playthrough. ALL CREDIT GOES TO BETH BEAR FOR THE AWESOME VID!! Can confirm if you follow the guide below it will get you the cheevo as I pretty much translated her guide from video to text smile

Again, I would recommend that you have a handful of playthroughs under your belt as I don't guide you from item to item.

-Prologue: run straight upstairs, grab key, back downstairs to unlock the studio

-Chapter 1: hairbrush on windowsill to the right (early on in chapter, sort of easy to miss)

-Chapter 2: piano notes in room right across from small room with key; scary baby chest by creepy window; violin in closet in vinyl room

-Chapter 3: room that appears behind you after looking at it through a window has a calendar in the left top drawer, turn on lamp in next room; library room turn on lamp in the corner next to small table with tobacco pipe on it and push ladder to get key and unlock upstairs door; basement staircase turn on light

-Chapter 4: note on floor from fire horse room; birthday hat on teddy bear; kids shoes in bow room; break mirror in vanity mirror room (open two drawers); checkers puzzle (beating heart); out of apples note in top right drawer under the beating heart on wall; feed fake cat with fruit on same table; walk under chairs death; open cupboard in floating crayon room; doll hallway near the end look through window on the right at carousel outside; pick up perfume on windowsill; look at creepy kid's picture in pool of blood door/room right after perfume; kid's room interact with jack in the box and picture in same dresser

-Chapter 5: Die in flashing lights wife hallway with item on floor next to candle (do not pick up item); "don't look back" jump scare death; pull chain three times; fold up mirror on windowsill, go in other blood pool room right after; go into room with wife in floor right after that, exit and then go back inside to get that death; phone numbers in order, 363, 853, 354

-Chapter 6: Die in yellow hallway, "each mistake a pitfall" death (very easy to miss, after you drop down door on the floor, look straight ahead at the only exit while walking backwards); jump into picture pit without pulling up pictures; bed on fire room and bandages; necklace on windowsill, walk into area next to it, then walk into wife's room then look at everything in room; push wheelchair as far as it goes; knife in bathroom

-Ending sequence, note in child's room area on floor; secret safe code (hard to decipher what the actual code is on the vid but starting at 0 if you move the dial counterclockwise from 10 to 20 to 30 to 40, then from 40 go clockwise to 30, then to 20 and the safe should open) then go to stairs and watch them collapse; light tri candles with little floating house next to it in checkers room

Again thanks to Beth Bear for solving all of our dilemmas with completing this awesome game!

Always some idiots out there.

Beth Bear Thank you ^ :)
Posted by Beth Bear on 23 Feb 16 at 12:44
Beth Bear I notice that a few people are saying they have followed the wife and child ending vid and not got the ending.
The only thing I can think of it... 1) It has something to do with the rat drawings and mementos ( as I had collected all these from past plays) although people have said above that they followed the vid without having any of the rat drawings and mementos and still got the endings or 2) People are missing something I do in the video - I can't think of anything else as to way it might not be working for them.
Posted by Beth Bear on 23 Feb 16 at 13:24
uhKillswitch I can only think of that they don't follow your video to the point.

uhKillswitch Glad this is over, Yazite. The game is great, don't get me wrong but having to do countless runs qith the wrong ending really left a bad taste.
Posted by uhKillswitch on 23 Feb 16 at 21:25
TuKraZe First playthrough for me and I followed this guide to the absolute T. I even went as far as opening the drawers as you did and looking down corridors etc, so it must be to do with collectibles. I never picked up or collected anything you didn't in your video. The difference that I did have was the Rat instead of the Dog when you pick up the drawing and have to figure out the code. I'll probably make a second runthrough collecting everything and go for this again on my third run
Posted by TuKraZe on 23 Feb 16 at 23:46
xx Kenshira xx like i mentioned above, my save was deleted, [ not sure why ], so i had 0 collectibles, i also got the rat puzzle for the door, and i still got the wife and child ending from following the guide. it could be as simple, as not looking out the window in act 2 to see the wife, or didn't look at the selected few paintings [ ones that shakes], or didn't look at something long enough. since no one is sure for 100% what the triggers are it could have been anything.
Posted by xx Kenshira xx on 24 Feb 16 at 06:05
TitianDan If i follow those videos exactly, should i get the full 1000g? After all 3 i mean
Posted by TitianDan on 24 Feb 16 at 09:20
uhKillswitch Only if Beth collects every collectible in one of the videos. I've only watched the wife/child one so I can't tell.
I would do an all collectibles run first following the guide from playstationtrophies.com and then do 3 runs following Beth's videos.
Remember to start a new game for each run.
Posted by uhKillswitch on 24 Feb 16 at 09:31
Beth Bear The video that is uploading has all the collectibles shown as a full playthrough. I did make a mistake but if you follow the video exactly the outcome is still correct.
Posted by Beth Bear on 24 Feb 16 at 09:38
Beth Bear @TitianDan the only achievements that are not covered in the videos are the ones for looking at the paintings for a certain amount of time dialling 911 on the phone and opening 100 draws/cupboards.

Posted by k1r1llka on 24 Feb 16 at 10:53

Posted by SiegfriedX on 24 Feb 16 at 13:01
TheLibertine666 There's a simple way to get the self portrait ending. Just load up chapter six walk towards wife after the room where the 3 paintings fall, when you reach the crank room with the black pit crank up the paintings and fall into the pit. Pick up the bandages in the room with burning bed and the knife in the bathroom, just finish the chequers room and that should get you the self portrait ending.
Posted by TheLibertine666 on 24 Feb 16 at 14:23
tvsr i am having no luck getting this to work for the wife/child ending. i've followed the video four times now. i even deleted all my save information and tried with no collectables at all and still i only seem to get the wife ending. does anyone have any advice?
Posted by tvsr on 24 Feb 16 at 15:35
Beth Bear tvsr... No idea why this is happening but I did the wife and child ending last..
I did the self portrait one first, followed by the wife then the wife and child..
For me this was the easiest way...
As I said previously its either something to do with having all the collectibles..
or when you are following the video you are possibly missing something.

Get ending with wife and child again..
I Think just need find a whirligig in last blue room for this ending. What you think?

Maybe try speedrun without collectible,but with whirligig

Posted by Funky Monkee on 27 Feb 16 at 13:02
TuKraZe TheLibertine666 states that if you reload chapter 6 you in fact get and follow his instructions you'll gain the Self portrait ending. I followed his steps but was unable to achieve this ending, just ended up with the Wife and Child ending again. Am going to do a third playthrough to get the last ending instead.
Posted by TuKraZe on 27 Feb 16 at 13:12

einbrecher87 I got all three endings following your videos, I got the achievo for the self portrait and wife+child but I did not get the omniscient achievement :-( Can anybody tell my whats going on here? Maybe my progress crashed because I select New Game every time and I didn't use to continue?
Posted by einbrecher87 on 14 Mar 16 at 15:54
Yazite Selecting new game doesn't change it. Try checking your achievement app to see if it's stuck.
Posted by Yazite on 14 Mar 16 at 16:19
Breedhate68 followed his vid to a t also for self portrait , but his screw ups will probably cost me now because of his reload in last chapter, when I reloaded it put me in the bathroom fucking me out of the last family objects. will see if I get self portrait tomorrow, too pissed right now
Posted by Breedhate68 on 17 Mar 16 at 01:17
Beth Bear Breedhate his? I did the guide (I'm female btw) also stop complaining so much.. if you followed the video exactly then u should get the ending that includes backing out like I did.. Just follow the video.
Posted by Beth Bear on 17 Mar 16 at 09:48
UltraAmbiguous The first time I watched the video, I skipped ahead over a couple scenes - thinking everything would match-up. Boy was I wrong! I would up replaying the whole game three times to get this achievement, but only by playing & pausing the video throughout each step.

Thank you for a thorough and correct video!
Posted by UltraAmbiguous on 15 May 16 at 16:14
Beth Bear No problem buddy..... like you said.. you do need to follow the video exactly. This is why a lot of people have said they haven't got the correct ending.. its because I think they have skipped ahead and missed things..
Posted by Beth Bear on 15 May 16 at 17:10
ImJustYourDaddy For the Wife and Child ending video: at around 14:10 in the hallway with the piano, when you turn around and open the door in that hallway it is locked for me. I have every collectible, both of the other endings, and have followed the video completely. Do you know why?
Posted by ImJustYourDaddy on 20 Jun 16 at 16:41
ImJustYourDaddy Nvmd. I still ended up in that room by going forwards.
Posted by ImJustYourDaddy on 20 Jun 16 at 16:52
ParadoxReal8 I just read the writing guides as I watch a video for collectibles, but there is something I didn't quite understood. You said it was better to begin with self ending to clear collectibles. That's good, but then you say that we need to collect only certain stuffs for that ending and I follow a collectibles guide. I'm only at chapter 4 first run so I don't worry too much as I have no real way to know which ending I'll have, but could you precise this a little?

justG0Twicked Nice guide Beth, but you leave out a VERY important detail in the WIFE ending. You just quit out after the guy throws the painting in the room with the others - you need to go to the MOR and start a new painting to complete the WIFE ending. I had to watch some PC-guy on Youtube finish it, to get credit for this ending. This is an important detail. See Lone Wolf up above - if he quit out like you, this is why he is still stuck @ 66%.

Epsilon Factor I have gotten the wife ending twice now, but no "Finishing touch" achievement and no Omniscient achievement!! I don't know what else to do. I have beaten the game five times already and it just seems to be broken.. angry

The game doesn't save once you get the wife ending? I exited out and when I cam back and clicked "continue", it took me back to the beginning of chapter 6. I beat chapter six again and the game just doesn't want to register that the game is completed..
Posted by Epsilon Factor on 24 Jul 16 at 19:21
Rainleaf @ Epsilon Factor

===> The wife Ending in the video posted does NOT show that in the end you need to go up stairs to the office , get the key from the desk , go downstairs and unlock the portrait room , look around till there is a fresh canvas on the stool there and push it down .Then the game will end giving you the Wife Ending credit .

I my self had the same issue .
Posted by Rainleaf on 27 Jul 16 at 18:18
Epsilon Factor Thanks Rainleaf! I'm downvoting this guide because it left out this crucial information which led to frustration.

FullMoonBeaver Some questions. Why would I need to quit and reload twice? Also, Ii have followed the video for Self Portrait and it doesn't match with my play through. The rooms you went through before the Ouija Board, I had them after the Ouija Board. What gives? Also, I have collectables in different locations
Posted by FullMoonBeaver on 11 Aug 16 at 01:21
DropDeadArtemus Used your video plus Undead Shrooms written checklist to get the Wife+Child ending. Too bad my game crashed after finishing the painting. Reloaded and had to do the ending checker section again. Finally made it to the credits but my achievement didn't pop even though it was the last ending I needed. The snapped achievement tracker says 66%, but the achievement app says 100%. Gotta love those Xbox One achievements sometimes. Thank you for a perfect walkthrough, though. I guess my achievement will pop eventually.

*EDIT*-Finally got the achievement to pop by replaying chapter 6 and getting the wife+child ending again. Thanks again for the perfect guide.

AmazingCarlie69 For the wife ending video (at approx. 14:11), in the room where the piano flies down the hall, you turned around and left through the door you came in. When I tried, the door was locked. Not sure how to proceed. I even tried quitting and restarting the chapter a few times, but its always locked for me. Any suggestions? I was following the video 100% and would prefer not to stray of course as best as possible lol

Glycodin About W&C ending:
>out of apples note in top right drawer under the beating heart on wall; feed fake cat with fruit on same table;
I have no notes in this drawer, i dont have a fake cat and i can't interact with fruits. It's critical? Until then, I strictly followed the video. Fresh save.
 
UPD: Anyway, i got the achievement. Thank you.

EnbukanSquirrel Followed HellCreeper's link and that guide did it for me the first time.
Video guide above did not work for me. Followed exact on 2 playthroughs and still only Wife ending.

tobiasvl Worked great for me. I missed a couple of things; I forgot feeding the cat and picked up one of the "selfish" echos and forgot the crayon drawing echo, but still got the Wife/Child ending no problem. After getting the Selfish ending on my first collectible run, time to try to go for the "common" Wife ending...

tobiasvl Worked great, I just replayed chapter 5 and onwards, picking the selfish choices, and ended up with wife. 1000G in two and a half playthroughs. Thanks so much for the guide.

Beth Bear No problem- Glad it worked fine for you

sanityends Any chance that going right up to the girl in the red hall (you may have zoomed in) cost me self portrait? I took forever to copy your every move

NoHeroes94 I got it perfectly fine, 3 playthroughs, 3 different endings and 1000G (inheritance DLC this weekend.) Thanks Beth Bear! (fellow Welshie.)

I personally think the guide which said "literally do everything exactly the same" is wise advise; however, it is pretty much what you do and don't pick up. The idea is that you ignore everything not related to your wife and child, and DO pick up everything related to your wife and child. Things like staring a portraits is quite vein and thus helps the selfish ending etc. At least, thats my knowledge of it.

@sanityends Self Potrait is one of the easier endings. If you pick up all collectibles you'll probably get this ending.

Full Tilt Panic Thanks for this. This was the only ending I needed and the guide worked for me. I just wish there was more diversity in the levels based on the ending you are going for. It's way to nuanced and repetitive chasing every ending. Anyway, thanks!

iKushtyy Upvoted, but don't follow the guide exactly. I have problems where I can't mimic the SP video. I couldn't pick up the gun after the baby bedroom in Ch4, the cabinet was locked. And now, I can't get the paint palette on Ch5.


ALSO, you forgot to mention that at the end of the neutral run, you have to grab the key and go back to your art room to finish the run and get credit.

wildwest08 @iKushtyy and any others that have the problem with the gun and the palette this is what I found. I tried opening the cabinet with the gun but I never was able to get it open so I skipped it. Still got the selfish ending. The palette didn't spawn initially either so I continued with the video and it spawned after turning the lamp off, turning the light switch on and opening the door on the left of the light switch.

wildwest08 I would also like to add that if you don't want to do 3 full playthroughs you don't have to. Using the guide below and chapter select works. I did the selfish one first then with the other 2 endings I selected chapter 5 each time and played through to the end. Each time I changed how I acted to get the different endings

E1pinko So with the Wife and Child ending, it works without having every collectable in the game. I followed the text guide as best as I could (had a little bit of trouble with the ending) but it unlocked. I played through the game normally twice, one for a normal playthrough, one to speedrun the selfish ending, then I completed the Wife and Child ending though chapter select.

Zaki HUN Hm, i finished the game first with the Self Portrait ending. Then i finished with the wife ending. After these i restart the last chapter, followed the video guide from chapter 6, and i got the achievement. So you don't have to do 3 full playthrough fortunately.

SolaceConquest Every time I go to do Chapter three for wife and child the door locks vehind me as soon as the piano moves, how did you get out?

JORDANQUAKE4 awesome guide not sure why you keep getting down voted guide worked perfect for me and I only used the self video love layers of fear glad I did my 1st playthrough blind otherwise it wouldn't have done this game justice

LizardKingLXXXI Fantastic guides Beth, have helped me a lot through this game. Appreciate you taking the time to put these together

Monkeyman1188 Great guides beth bear. I have seen all three endings but two of the endings didnt give me the achievement for them, the mother and the father endings didnt pop their ending achievement. Has anyone else had this problem? Is it in the Done. Unlocking phase? not sure what to do, Is there a way you get the correct ending but mess up slightly to not get the achievement? does that happen?
Posted by Monkeyman1188 on 12 Apr 17 at 03:03
Vr English Just wanted to say a big thanks for your Self-portrait video Beth, got it no problem after a blind run through. Will hopefully get the last achievements no problem too :)

RTG Yoda I got wife and child portrait on my first playthrough, then self portrait, and lastly I got the wife one... but the achievements didn't activate. I ended back in the house, is there a way to trigger the achievements here?

Edit: (fixed) All I had to do was go get the key on his desk again, go back to his workshop and start again. This will trigger the credits and the achievements.

Vixenist Just incase anyone else has Breedhate's issue where after the second quit out you're stuck in the hallway with the bathroom (it happened to me as well I think I walked too far into the bathroom) all I did to fix it was quit back to the menu again and chapter select chapter 6 then finished following her amazing guide step by step and still got the self portrait ending despite my mistake. Hope that can be helpful. Thank you for taking the time to make these videos :)

IfIsF1Backwards These guides... Perfeck! Cant see any issue of people not unlocking if following the vids? Down to a T!

ARCHER MIKE I played thru first time with no guides and used beth bear on 2nd playthru to mop up everything. On 3rd playthru, I needed 1 item and thats the #21 palette that did not show up on 2nd playthru and ended up with another repeat ending so read around and found out the best way to get paint palette then tried repeating chapters 4,5,6 to get wife/child ending but couldnt get it. Maybe I messed it up when trying to replay just the last chapters but then I remembered its a point system so that meant another full run thru. While playing beth bear play thru, I noticed a speedrun on YouTube for wife/child ending by CCLSama that takes 45 minutes. Got it first try following that speedrun which nabbed me another 1000 gs.

Note that chapter 6 and maybe 5 have different order to follow as playstation run is different than xbone run thru. If you get confused, just watch for extra 2 minutes and you will see the differences between the rooms. They are almost exact except it looks like it was edited in wrong order so you can still find and earn all cheevos using these videos.

Do not know if its true or not but others said you had to collect everything to have better chance at getting wife/child ending.

The other thing I noticed in my last play thru was each time you paint to complete that chapter, the picture looks more like your ending.

Now I have to decide if I should do the DLC. hmmm

Jennitiger1138 Video is very dark and quite hard to see where you are positioned at times, checkers section at end stairs never break apart for me, tried 3 times and just doesn't happen, do you know what the trigger for this is?

Apostle92627 Not sure if mentioned but you don't need to do everything that's listed. I missed a few deaths going for the wife and child portrait and still got it.
Posted by Apostle92627 on 14 Dec 17 at 21:32
IstIngiliz In case this helps anyone else, here is what I did to get all the achievements without three playthroughs.

1) Played through the game without any guide. Opening everything and picking up everything I saw. Encountered the ghost when I saw it and child. Ended the game with the wife/child portrait.

2) Used chapter select to pick up any collectibles I had missed; 4 words, 5 mementos and 4 rat pictures I think.

3) To be safe, loaded up from chapter four, followed the rats, looked at pictures, avoided ghost and child, didn't pick anything up except the words. Ending was the self-portrait.

4) Loaded up chapter four again, avoided rats, didn't look at pictures, encountered the ghost and died at each opportunity. Fell down the hole where you would use the crank to raise the portraits up. Avoided any items and child interactions. Ending was the wife portrait, which allowed me to pop all achievements.

SteeledOwl Guide works perfectly. Scooped it up like ice cream. I did the neutral ending first, then the self portrait when picking up the collectibles and the rat drawings seemed to outweigh the other collectibles. I followed Undead Shroom's text guide and, although I didn't get it the first time because of a chapter 5 death I missed, I ended up getting the wife-child ending by loading up there and finishing. Of course I'm doing this in 2018 so maybe the devs patched some things up but it just requires some perseverance.

The game is definitely frustrating with all the vague requirements for the wife-child ending, the low-budget horror cheese, and the checker scavenger hunt but at least its easier than sawing off a leg amirite?
Posted by SteeledOwl on 08 Jan at 09:01
Pure Pip Raptor Not sure if anyone posted this. Played on the Xbox One, I can confirm I got the wife and child ending. Only difference was that in chapter 2 (I think) when you walk towards the piano that moves twice, I couldn't go through the door that was gone through in the video. It was locked. I went past the piano and into the same room. Other difference was that In chapter 6 near the end with the checker board in the middle, the staircase didn't break as it did in the video. I lit the candles, then walked over to the staircase and it broke.

prince0B In my first play through I received the self portrait ending. I replayed from chapter 5 and tried to get the neutral wife portrait (thinking I’d have to play from the start again to get the wife and child portrait) but ended up with the wife and child portrait.

Then I replayed the whole game for the neutral ending. So I’m a bit bamboozled about why my endings happened when they did but can’t complain.
