Eternal Threads

The time-twisting narrative adventure Eternal Threads is in the works for Switch, publisher Secret Mode and developer Cosmonaut Studios confirmed today.

The game is initially slated to launch in May. On Switch, however, we won’t be seeing it until later in 2022. Eternal Threads was announced just over a year ago, but today marks the first time we’re hearing about it for Nintendo’s console.

Eternal Threads is a first-person, non-linear narrative adventure about time manipulation, choice, and consequence. You’ll play as an operative who has been tasked with fixing corruption in the timestream by saving a group of people who died in a house fire.

Here’s the official blurb:

As an operative tasked with fixing corruption in the timestream, you have been sent to the North of England in May 2015, where six people died in a house fire. Prohibited from simply stopping the fire, you must instead manipulate the choices made by the housemates in the week leading up to it so that they all survive the event.

From the outset, you have free and complete reign to explore the seven-day timeline before the fire. You can watch and alter the significant events from the entire week as many times as you like and in whatever order you wish. Some decisions will have only minor effects on the timeline, moving objects around the house or revealing deeper stories and secrets. Major changes, however, rewrite the timeline by changing existing events, adding new events, and even replacing other events entirely.

You must traverse up and down this timeline, changing decisions at different moments throughout the week so that their effects interact and combine to save all six housemates.

However, it is not just the housemates who have choices. Each of them can be saved from the fire in multiple ways, with each outcome having a profound effect on their lives in the future. Will you just search for the quickest and easiest solution, or can you find the best possible outcome for everyone?

Ultimately, everything is about choices and consequences.
