Time travelers should be able to stop a house fire with ease. All you have to do is fix the faulty electrical wiring, or stamp out an errant cigarette butt, right? This is the situation you face in Eternal Threads, but in this timeline, the blaze’s casualties must be prevented with the power of kindness alone.

You’re presented with a series of events that take place over the course of a week and imperceptibly add up to the tragic fire. Thankfully, you’re gifted with technology that can slyly edit some of the decisions made between the residents, ideally brewing up a butterfly effect that will get them out alive. Eternal Threads is a showcase of second chances, an invitation to reflect on the times in our lives when we didn’t let cooler heads prevail.
