A Light in the Dark – Walkthrough (All Endings Guide)

All endings guide for A Light in the Dark.

All Endings

The visual novel has 5 normal endings + 1 bad ending.

Bad Ending (Choose Death Achievement) – The condition: during the first day use every opportunity to anger the kidnapper and try to escape as many times as possible, soon enough your stamina will drop to 0, and you’ll die.

Ending 5 (Sickness Achievement) – The condition: during the second and the third days anger the little sister by picking all the choices which make her big sister (the kidnapper) looks bad and distrusting. You’ll die at the end of the Day 3.

Ending 4 (Warmth Achievement) – The condition: during the Day 5, when you’re alone with the little sister, choose to attempt to flee, instead of giving up.

Ending 3 (Indelible Mark Achievement) – The conditions:

  • During the beginning of the Day 3 choose to escape.
  • During the beginning of the Day 4 choose to resist.
  • During the beginning of the Day 5 choose to escape.
  • During the Day 2 ask the little sister “Do you know where your older sister went?” then select “What if she tries to escape?”
  • During one of the conversations with the big sister ask her “Do you really think you will get out of this unscathed?” then select “I’m not interested in finding out”.
  • During the Day 5 try to loosen the ropes while the big sister is sleeping.
  • During the Day 6 go to the bathroom and investigate the broken glass on the ground, cut the ropes then don’t attack the little sister but instead attack the big sis.

Remember that during the Day 5 you shouldn’t try to escape when there’s only the little sister with you, right after you’ve heard the motorcycle, because it’ll lead straight to the Ending 4.

Another indicator that you’ve reached the Ending 3’s route is a visual glitch during one of the days (other routes don’t have it):

Ending 2 (Endless Rain Achievement) – The condition: don’t escape, try to cooperate with sisters, choose the peaceful path but don’t investigate much and try to choose one or two dialogue variants from the conditions of the Ending 3 to upset them a little. The ending takes place during the Day 6.

Ending 1 (New Beginning Achievement) – The condition: same as Ending 2 but don’t say anything mean or unpleasant to the sisters. If you live past the Day 6, then you’re fine.
