Eternal Threads Impressions

Eternal Threads is a game that invites you to step into the shoes of a chrononaut tasked with a daunting mission: to prevent a devastating fire that claims the lives of six housemates in 2015. This isn’t your typical time-traveling adventure; instead of grand leaps through history, you’re meticulously manipulating moments within a single week, rewinding conversations and altering actions with the hope of nudging the characters towards a safer future.


The game’s strength lies in its immersive atmosphere and intricate tapestry of time manipulation. The house itself becomes a character, its rooms echoing with the hopes, dreams, and anxieties of its young inhabitants. You’ll eavesdrop on conversations, piece together relationships, and navigate the emotional complexities of young adulthood. The characters, while not groundbreaking, feel genuine and relatable, drawing you into their lives and the looming tragedy.

As you meticulously rewind and replay events, the weight of each choice becomes palpable. A seemingly insignificant conversation can have ripple effects, altering the course of the week and the fate of the housemates. This focus on detail fosters a sense of responsibility and consequence, making you acutely aware of the delicate balance of the timeline.

However, Eternal Threads isn’t without its flaws. The gameplay loop can feel repetitive at times, as you repeatedly rewind and replay events. Additionally, the visual style, while atmospheric, is somewhat dated, lacking the crispness and polish of modern games.


Despite these shortcomings, Eternal Threads is a thought-provoking experience that rewards patience and careful observation. It’s a game that invites reflection on the power of choices, the interconnectedness of lives, and the enduring impact of the past on the present. If you’re looking for a unique and emotionally resonant narrative adventure, Eternal Threads is worth stepping through the time portal.

Ultimately, Eternal Threads is a game that lingers in your mind long after the credits roll. It’s a testament to the power of storytelling and the way it can make us contemplate the complexities of human connection and the consequences of our actions. It’s a reminder that even the smallest moments can have a profound impact, and that sometimes, the most significant changes are woven from the threads of the past.
