i finished the game with only Matt dying, this is unacceptable for me because not only did i contribute to one of the main horror tropes of all black characters always dying in them but i made it worse by having the only black dude in the game being the only one to die simply because i was trying to be brave and help my GF so she wouldn't plummet to her death only to be dragged away by a wendigo and impaled through the face with a hook. I feel humiliated, violated, exasperated, and constipated because of this travesty and will have no choice but to replay and make matt the sole survivor to remedy this mess

How not to die with Matt:

Matt is actually the first to character who "can" die first. When you're with Em on your way to the mountains, you get surrounded by deer. If you decide to hit the deer with Matt, they will push him off the cliff. If you fail the QTE, he falls and dies.

As for not dying with Matt: Simply disagree with Em when she says that you should go to the fire tower. Then, take the flare gun with Em when you're on the tower and give it to Matt. This will result in Matt not shooting the flare gun. You can then attempt to save Em twice until the game forces Matt to jump to the lower level mine shaft, where he encounters a Wendigo. You can use the flare gun to defend yourself.

If you don't have the flare gun, only attempt once or not at all to save Em. This will result in Matt jumping to the upper mine shaft level and he won't encounter any wendigo.

I'm proud to say that I put in the ultimate effort, and goddammit, the Token Black Guy LIVED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I took the last poster's Option B route, not knowing about the bloody flare gun. :( Sad to say, Emily was not happy with her boytoy at the end.

^^ This

Also, Matt was the only one to die for me too. :(

He dies so early so it's a b**** to save him since you have to play most of the game to get to the end.

How can Jess die first? I also read that Mike can die at the guest cabin? Three play-throughs, different choices, all resulting in Jessica stepping outside, screaming and getting abducted.

@iconiq


She dies first if you're slow chasing her with Mike at the cabin.

Mike can't die until the final moments of the game. Him and Sam have to survive for the story to totally make sense I guess.

The choices that lead to Matt dying/living are probably the most obtuse in the game.
