001-General Information

This is a walkthrough for the Nintendo DS game known as
"Time Hollow". It's made by Konami, and it follows the 
adventures of Ethan Kairos as he makes time holes and 
changes things in the past. And, of course, he messes up 
a few times, and a crazy bad guy shows up, and Ethan 
helps his uncle start a cafe. You know, pretty typical 

If you want to put this guide on your own website or 
something like that, or if you just wanna talk about this 
game, email me at ilovecartoonssomuch@yahoo.com . Make 
sure the subject is either "Time Hollow FAQ" or just 
leave it blank, so I don't accidentally delete it.

002-Video Walkthrough

I made a video walkthrough for this game, so if you would 
rather watch me play the game than read about it, you can
see the videos at...


The videos come complete with my commentary.


Ethan Kairos: Our hero! He's an average seventeen year 
old. Well, okay, maybe he's got a minor obsession with 
clocks, and, yeah, his hair sticks out to the side, but
other than that, I guess he's normal.

Timothy Kairos: Ethan's dad. He's not very talkative, I 

Pamela Kairos: Ethan's mom. She's a rather bland sort of 

Uncle Derek: Ethan's uncle, who often has trouble with 
money (due to his failed attempt at running a coffee 
house, and his job as a freelance writer). He gets angry 

Vin Threet: Ethan's buddy. He used to be on the 
basketball team, but got hurt in a ladder-related 
accident. Ethan visits his house a lot, but never goes 

Ben Fourier: Ethan's buddy who wears glasses. He has a 
big crush on Olivia, and Ethan thinks he's kind of a 
dweeb. You should probably keep pliers away from this 

Morris Fivet: Ethan's buddy, who studies pretty much all 
the time. He also loves dogs, and is one of the few 
people who knows about parallel worlds.

Ashley Threet: Vin's sister. She's "spunky". According to 
the manual, she's one of the two girls vying for Ethan's 
affection. The other one is Emily, Ashley's friend.

Emily Niner: Ashley's friend, the one with glasses. She 
has a crush on Ethan, but Ethan doesn't notice.

Olivia Eights: A girl who works at the local cafe. Ben 
has a crush on her.

Aaron Seven: Olivia's boyfriend. Ooo, tough luck there, 

Kori Twelves: The mysterious girl of mystery. Of course, 
she's also hot.

Eva Sixon: Owner of Chronos, the local cafe. She bought 
it from Uncle Derek.

Jacob Eleven: A little boy. He's usually seen walking his 

Lucky: Jacob's dog. Gets hit by a falling refrigerator at 
one time. Jacob should probably thinking about changing 
the dog's name to Unlucky.

Shiloh: Ben's old dog.

Irving Onegin: Owner of Aeon, a local antique store.

Jack Twombley: Ethan's homeroom teacher. Used to teach 
Uncle Derek. He likes to give Ethan quizzes.

Sarah Tenneson: Local librarian.


004a-Prologue: A New Day

The game starts off in Ethan's room. Ethan's hand is 
scratched up because he tried to give a bath to his cat 
Sox. Sheesh, Ethan, don't you know that you're not 
supposed to give cats baths?

The game then teaches you how to look at stuff. Tap your 
stylus against the bottom screen, and an icon will appear 
if you can do something with it. Tap on the icon to 
perform the icon action.

Mostly, all you can do is look at stuff and talk to 

You can use the left/right buttons to shift the camera 
left and right, too.

Look at all the stuff in your room (the bed, the TV, the 
window, Sox, the two cabinets, the trashcan, the floor 
and the desk). You learn about Ethan's obsession with 
watches. That's right, obsession. When you've got a whole 
cabinet full of watch catalogues, you're obsessed. End of 

You also learn about Ethan's buddies, and that it's 
Ethan's birthday tomorrow! Naturally, he wants a watch.

Once you've finished looking around, you can press B (or 
tap the icon in the upper/right corner) to learn about 
leaving. Basically, if you're somewhere, press B to 
leave. Simple enough, right?

Once you examine everything and learn how to leave, 
Ethan's mom Pamela shouts that dinner is ready. Leave to 
go downstairs and have dinner.

You then get to see the slightly intense theme song, 
complete with animation that shows stuff that happens 
later on in the game. After that, there's a shot of 
someone examining the Kairos house from the outside, and 
the game cuts to inside the house.

Ethan doesn't like the food, which is weak. The game 
teaches you how to talk to people, by tapping on them 
twice. Same as examining objects.

Talk to Ethan's parents. Timothy wants the soy sauce, so 
pan right to see the soy sauce, then click on it. Talk to 
Ethan's mom to get some salt. Timothy freaks out about 
the cut on Ethan's hand, but calms down when he learns 
that it was made by Sox, not a crazed attacker. 

Sox used to be Uncle Derek's cat. Timothy makes a snide 
remark about how they haven't seen Uncle Derek in a 
while--that must mean he doesn't need any money. I guess 
Pamela's bland cooking puts Timothy in a bad mood.

Dinner ends and Timothy leaves. The game teaches you how 
to walk around, which is just like examining objects or 
talking to people. Just tap somewhere, and if the walking 
icon shows up, tap there again to walk there. And, as 
always, press B to leave wherever it is you are.

Head upstairs to Ethan's room. Outside, Sox is freaking 
out over the creepy prowler outside, but all Ethan 
notices is the fact that his window is open.

Shut the window, and Pamela calls you down for tea. What? 
Tea? But you just had dinner! Ah, well, leave the room 
with B.

Ethan then spies on the conversation between his parents 
and Uncle Derek, who came by to ask for money. Derek and 
Timothy yell at each other for a bit. Derek makes some 
threats and leaves.

Ethan's parents then start talking about Ethan's birthday 
tomorrow. He's turning seventeen! Ethan's just about 
ready to whip out the old watch catalogue to beg for a 
birthday gift. Because, you know, in the magic land where 
Ethan lives, you can order watches from catalogues and 
have them delivered overnight.

Ethan's parents don't pay attention, but instead, they 
talk about something else--something mysterious. Ethan 
then gets pissed off and yells at his mom for NOT USING 

Boy, everyone in this family overreacts to everything, 
don't they? Uncle Derek practically threatens to kill his 
brother over a few bucks, Timothy freaks out over cuts on 
Ethan's hand, and Ethan flips about the lack of spices on 
his food.

Ethan marches upstairs, and you learn about the system 
menu. Press X (or tap on the lower-left corner) to 
activate it. You can use this to save/load your game, 
check out the various people in the game, check out the 
items you have (none right now) and see flashbacks (more 
on that later).

For now, click on the Sox to get him off the bed. Then 
click on the bed and Ethan goes to sleep. Ethan thinks 
for a bit, then it's CUTSCENE TIME.
In the cutscene, Child Ethan is having a nightmare about 
his parents who are...trapped in a burning building. Time 
stops momentarily, and Timothy starts asking questions 
dramatically. Then we hear Child Ethan yelling and 
whining about his parents leaving, as Timothy picks up 
Pamela and the two walk through some sort of wormhole 

Ethan wakes up screaming, until he sees Sox. Then he gets 
up and, wait...huh?

Check out the wormhole thing in the middle of the room. 
Ethan, naturally, is curious about it and--no wait, I'm 
just joking. He doesn't worry about the wormhole.

Instead, check out the bed and floor. Wait, his blankets 
are different, and his carpet is gone. OH NO!! WHAT'S 

Ethan then notices that there's a pen attached to Sox's 
collar. It's the Hollow Pen. I don't know why it's called 
the Hollow Pen...there must be nothing inside it.

Anyway, once you get the pen, NOW Ethan starts to worry 
about the gaping wormhole in his room. For reasons I 
don't understand, Ethan decides to whip out the Hollow 
Pen and touch the wormhole, which is technically a 

Ethan then gets some flashbacks, and Uncle Derek comes 
upstairs to check on him. Derek tells Ethan to shower and 
have breakfast.

Ethan mentions his parents, and Derek says that Ethan's 
parents disappeared twelve years ago. What? But they were 
just there last night!

Derek leaves, and the game tells you about flashbacks. 
Flashbacks are "fragments of past memories that Ethan 
never had". Erm...right. So now Ethan can remember things 
that didn't happen to him?

Check out flashbacks in the system menu. You can use your 
stylus or the left/right buttons (plus A) to examine 
flashbacks. The first one is of a dumpster somewhere. The 
second one is of Uncle Derek.

The Uncle Derek flashback becomes confirmed--that is, 
Ethan remembers the title/time/place/details of the 
flashback. Usually, it'll take more effort/research to 
confirm a flashback, but since the game has just started, 
you get an easy one to start off with.

The flashback jumps to the confirmed flashbacks screen. 
Press R/L to switch between confirmed and unconfirmed 
flashbacks. Examine the newly-confirmed flashback to 
learn that Ethan lives with his Uncle Derek now, and 
examine the last flashback to see a burning building.

That's it for flashbacks now. Go downstairs with B and 
Ethan chats with Uncle Derek, who's drinking some coffee. 
Derek takes off, and so does Ethan.
The game skips to after school, where Ethan overhears two 
students talking about finding a clock near the garbage. 
Betcha this has something to do with the garbage dump in 
Ethan's flashback...

Then Ashley and Emily show up. Ashley and Emily are two 
girls who like Ethan. Emily introduces herself, and gives 
Ethan a clock for a present. Ah, just what Ethan always 

Vin shows up, and Ashley and Emily go away. Geez, Vin, 
way to ruin the romantic moment!

Ethan asks his friends about his parents. Talk to all 
three of them, and they all agree that Ethan's parents 
went missing twelve years ago, just like Uncle Derek 

Then it's map screen time! Use the control pad to move 
around the map, and tap on a place to go there. You can 
also use R/L to switch between places you can go.

You can go to school, the library, Chronos (a local 
cafe), the park, the train station, Vin's house, or 
Ethan's house. Ethan doesn't want to do anything at the 
library, Vin's house, school or the park.

At the train station, you can talk to Morris and Ben, who 
confirm that, yes, Ethan is acting weird. At Chronos, you 
can meet Emily, who is clearly crushing on Ethan. 
Probably because their names both start with the letter 
E. Ethan doesn't want to talk to her, for some reason. 
That's not exactly what I would do if a girl was crushing 
on me, but we should probably cut Ethan some slack 
because his parents suddenly disappeared. His mind is 
probably somewhere else at the moment.

You can't go inside Chronos, but you can walk to the 
front side of the building (near the bicycle) to 
see...absolutely nothing. Fun!

Well, since there's really nothing else to do (and 
because Ethan tells you to), go home. Tap on the door to 
go inside. Head upstairs, and Ethan puts the clock on his 
dresser. What an old clock...it might be an antique!

Ethan then remembers his dad said something weird 
yesterday about Ethan's birthday. Well...looks like he 
was right, something weird DID happen.

Ethan notices paper on Sox's collar. How did he miss that 
earlier? The paper says, "The Hollow Pen has been handed 
down through many generations of the Kairos family. The 
Pen will glow when certain conditions have been 
fulfilled. Then you can open a Hole in time. You'll learn 
the rest at the school's garbage dump. Be there 7 hours 
before on May 5."

Odd...very odd. Go downstairs and talk with Uncle Ethan, 
who says you can leave the house this late at night. This 
late being about 5:40, according to the face of the clock 
on Ethan's desk.

Head to school. Walk towards the gates, and Ethan somehow 
goes through them to the school courtyard. Ethan says the 
school dump is to the right, so walk to the area on the 
right to reach the school dumpster.

Ethan remembers this place from a flashback, then does 
the math. It's 10:00 now (okay, so I was wrong about it 
being 5:40), and the note said seven hours before, which 
is about 3:00.

Head to the flashback screen and look at the dumpster 
flashback. Ethan fills in all the information he just 
figured out.

So, now that the flashback is confirmed, Ethan's good to 
go! He can now OPEN A HOLE IN TIME!!! Woooooooo!

Start a digging session, and you learn how to dig. Draw a 
circle (not too big!) and the Time Hole is created. 
Ethan's in his current time--the Hole leads to a previous 
time, the one that is mentioned in the confirmed 

Click on the upper/right corner to close a hole. Each 
time you make a hole, the meter at the top of the screen 
decreases, so try not to make too many unnecessary holes, 
'cause if the meter is empty, you can't make any more 
time holes.

See the flashback picture at the top of the screen? 
There's a red thing in the dumpster, along with a letter. 
Open a hole surrounding it (you can use left/right to pan 
along your holes) and look at it.

Examine the red thing, and it's CUTSCENE TIME!! Ethan 
draws a perfect circle with the pen, then pans across the 
dumpster until he sees the red thing.

END CUTSCENE! Wow, that wasn't very long at all, was it? 
Ethan reaches is and grabs the red thing, which is a box. 
He also grabs the letter, which says, "Beyond the Hole is 
a Moment from the past. The Holes you open must be 
closed, or time won't start up again. The holder of the 
Pen must have the Time to use it. Once you've gotten the 
hang of the Pen, come and rescue us. PS. This box is for 
you, in memory of the first Hole you ever opened. -- 

Dun dun dun! The mystery thickens!

Inside the box is the watch Ethan wanted. Then Ethan 
remembers to close the hole (tap the green circle in the 
upper/right corner).

Then it's FLASHBACK TIME! Basically, whenever someone 
opens a Time Hole and changes reality, Ethan gets 
flashbacks that reflect the new reality. For example, now 
that Ethan has retrieved the clock from the dumpster, the 
two boys don't find the clock there (and Ethan has a 
flashback of the boys NOT finding anything in the 

Ethan remembers some things, then goes home and chats 
with Sox. He then gets dramatic about how he'll use the 
Hollow Pen to save his parents, and the prologue ends.

004b-Chapter One: The Day that Vanished

The game cuts to school the next day, where Ethan talks 
with his homeroom teacher, Jack Twombly. Twombly gives 
you a poetry quiz.

"Gather ye rosebuds while you may,
Old Time is still a-flying
And this same flower that smiles today
Tomorrow will be dying."

Hmph, depressing poem. But since it deals with time and 
changing things, it's relevant to the game.

Ashley and Emily show up to talk about the birthday 
present. They're happy he likes it. Emily picked it out! 
Vin shows up and, like a doofus, spoils the moment by 
insulting Ashley and Emily for wasting their money, and 
telling Ashley to find her lost cell phone, which is pink 
and has a dog hanging off of it.

Emily is embarrassed, and then it's flashback time AGAIN. 
What the--? Reality has changed?

Suddenly, Ben runs up to Ethan. Ben talks about how 
Ashley has gone missing. Oh, but Ethan was just talking 
to her! Ashley was acting as Emily's wing man! Alas, that 
was one reality ago! In this new reality, Ashley has been 
missing for two days!

Better check out the flashbacks for this new reality. 
They are:

1) Morris in school.
2) Emily and Ashley fighting outside Chronos
3) Ashley opening her locker while some guy looks on.
4) A dog who is tied up to a ladder.
5) The dumpster without a clock or letter in it (Ethan 
confirms this)
6) The two boys NOT finding a letter in the dumpster 
(Ethan confirms this)
7) The fire Ethan dreamed about.

Now it's time to explore school. You can go to the 
dumpster to see the two boys not finding a letter there, 
but where you're supposed to go is inside the front 

Just past the front doors are the lockers. It's the place 
in the flashback of Ashley opening her locker. And, hey, 
isn't the guy walking here now the same guy who was 
walking there in the flashback? Talk to him!

Ask Male Student (creative name) everything you can--if 
he knows Ashley, when he last saw Ashley, what Ashley was 
looking for. Apparently, Ashley lost something near her 
locker before she disappeared. I wonder what.

Go down the hall, and talk to Mr. Twombly again. He talks 
about a teacher meeting going on to prevent students from 
disappearing like Ashley did. You can also check out the 
note on the bulletin board to learn that Kori has 
whatever dropped out of the envelope. Um...good for you, 

The only other place you can go in this school is the 
classroom. Go inside through the door. Talk to the 
purple-haired girl (who walks off) in order to get Morris 
to stop studying.

Morris tells you that the purple-haired girl is Kori, and 
he goes to the Drama Club to look for Ashley. You can now 
verify the flashback of Morris and Kori in class 

Head back to the school courtyard, where you can 
interrogate two female students about Ashley. Talk to 
them all you can, and they tell you the rumor that Emily 
knows what happened to Ashley. A sad Ben shows up to 
report no progress at all, and then Ethan leaves to start 
his own search.

You need to find Emily, so go to the train station and 
talk with her. She's surprised Ethan knows her name 
(because in this reality, he didn't meet Emily when she 
and Ashley gave Ethan a birthday present...because Ashley 
went missing, so no one gave Ethan a birthday present).

Interrogate Emily. She says Ashley lost the money for 
Ethan's present, so Emily flipped out, yelled at her, and 
pushed her (like we see in the flashback). Ask Emily for 
all the details about the fight so Ethan can verify his 
flashback about the fight.

Ethan, who is apparently a little slow on the draw, 
wonders if he still got a birthday present from Ashley. 
Dude, weren't you paying attention? SHE'S BEEN MISSING 
FOR TWO DAYS! She couldn't have given you a birthday 
present yesterday!

Either way, make Ethan happy by going to his house, then 
to his room and looking at the dresser, which doesn't 
have a present on it.

Ethan then realizes there's something else different 
about this reality—KORI! She didn't exist in the other 
reality! This must mean she's important somehow! I think?

Head to school and check out the notice on the bulletin 
board with Kori's contact info. Ethan calls her, and she 
shows up shortly afterwards.

Ethan and Kori talk. Apparently, some girl dropped an 
envelope two days ago. Ethan figures that it's Ashley, 
and the envelope contained the missing money for Ethan's 
birthday present.

Kori is suspicious that Ethan only wants money, and 
doesn't really know Ashley at all. Time to prove that 
Ethan knows Ashley. Head over to Vin's house and talk to 
Vin. Then go back to Vin's house and talk to him again. 
This time, Vin gives Ethan a picture of Vin, Ethan and 

Go to school and show Kori the picture. She agrees you 
know Ashley, so she gives you the money.

Kori then gets mysterious and says, "The incident never 
happened. That is, it wouldn't have happened if I'd never 
showed up here."

Okay, because the game doesn't really explain what's 
going on, I'll try to explain things. Basically, the idea 
is that reality changed at the start of the chapter.

Former Reality:

1) Kori is not a member of Ethan's class.
2) Ashley loses, then presumably finds, the money for 
Ethan's birthday present.
3) Ashley and Emily buy Ethan a present.

New Reality:

1) Kori is a member of Ethan's class.
2) Ashley loses the money for Ethan's birthday present. 
Kori finds it.
3) Ashley and Emily fight about the lost money.
4) Ashley disappears for some reason.
5) Ethan doesn't get a present.

Why does Ashley go missing after losing the money? 
Well...no one knows for sure. It's kind of a loose plot 

In any case, you now have the envelope of money. Now you 
can go to the past and give Ashley the money so she 
doesn't lose it, and therefore doesn't go missing.

You can do this in two ways. Head to Ashley's locker, 
confirm the flashback of her at the locker, then open a 
Time Hole and stuff the envelope in the locker by 
examining the locker, then selecting "item", "envelope", 
then tapping the locker.

You can also change reality by going to Chronos, where 
Ashley and Emily fought. Confirm the memory about the 
fight, then slip the envelope in Ashley's hand (by 
tapping on her hand, choosing "item", "envelope", and 
tapping her hand again). This way, Ashley has the money, 
so there's no fight.

Both ways, reality changes so Ashley gets the money. 
Ethan has flashbacks of Emily and Ashley not fighting, 
and them giving Ethan a birthday present. If you stop the 
fight at Chronos, the present is a card. If you give 
Ashley the money at school, Ethan gets cookies.

Cutscene time! Ethan sees Vin outside. Ashley yells at 
Vin, and pulls him away. She tells Ethan that she'll give 
him a better present next year. End cutscene.

Well, looks like everything is back to normal! Good job, 
Master of Time! End Chapter!

004c-Chapter Two: The Day that Changed

The game cuts to school the next day, where Ben, Morris 
and Vin are off to Chronos! Finally, we go inside the 
cool cafe, and see the waitress that Ben has a crush on.

Olivia, eh? I guess she's kind of nice. Talk with Morris, 
Vin and Ben for a while. Then check out the guy reading 
the newspaper in the background.

Olivia talks about how she almost got in a bicycle 
accident. Good thing her brakes worked!

The man who was reading the newspaper gets up and leaves.

Then, it's CUTSCENE TIME, followed by FLASHBACK TIME! 
Reality has changed so Olivia DOES get in a bicycle 
accident! Er, that's not good. Not good at all, actually.

Talk to Ethan's buddies, who say nothing. Try to go 
inside, and Ethan's friends confirm what happened in the 
cutscene/flashback--Olivia is dead.

Talk to the guys again, and Ethan decides to head to the 
intersection, in case he can use the Hollow Pen to save 

Kori shows up, and points out that the flashback is of 
Olivia already dead. Ethan needs to help Olivia sometime 
before then. Thanks for the help, Kori! You're the--wait, 
how do YOU know what Ethan is having flashbacks of?

Kori leaves before Ethan can ask too many questions. 

Well, now the plan is to stop Olivia from getting in a 
bike accident. Check your flashbacks, and the only 
promising-looking one is the flashback of Emily and 
Ashley outside of Chronos, near Olivia's bike.

That means you'll have to see Emily and Ashley. They're 
by the library. Talk to them about their discussion 
outside Chronos yesterday. Ethan kind of comes off as a 
creepy stalker, because he makes it seem like he was 
watching Ashley and Emily.

Emily remembers that they talked until 7:10 or so, 
because the store closed before they finished talking, 
and the store closes at 7:00. All right! That's all the 
info we need to verify the flashback!

So head over to Chronos and go to the bike area. If you 
haven't already, verify the flashback to get the Hollow 
Pen working. Then open a Time Hole near the bike, and 
examine the bike. Oh no! Somebody cut the brake wire! No 
wonder she got in an accident! Ethan decides to prevent 
the accident by stealing Olivia's bike key instead.

You can also open a time hole on Emily's face and steal 
her glasses if you want. And you can try to examine 
various body parts belonging to Ashley and Emily to get 
some humorous messages like "Woah!", "This is kinda 
dicey", and "Yeah, I shouldn't look at that."

So once Ethan takes the bike key, reality shifts and he 
gets flashbacks of how Olivia had to walk home.

Ethan winds up in Chronos, where Olivia talks about 
seeing a dog get killed in an accident. Oh, great. Ethan 
saved Olivia, but ended up killing a dog instead! Looks 
like we'll have to change reality again, this time to 
save the dog.

Head to the intersection where a boy named Jacob Eleven 
is hanging out. His dog was the one who got killed. The 
dog's name was Lucky, even though the dog was in no way 
lucky at all in the accident last night. Jacob tells you 
a few details, such as the fact that Lucky was killed by 
a falling refrigerator.

Head down the road to the right, and Ethan remembers a 
bit from a flashback. Not enough, however. He'll need 
help from someone in the flashback.

Go back, and Ethan sees Sox. Sox has...a green ball of 
light (a chron). This refills your Hollow Pen meter. As 
you wander around the game, keep an eye out for Sox. If 
you see him, tap on him and he gives you a chron. Use 
that to refill your Hollow Pen if needed. You don't want 
it getting too low.

At the end of each chapter, the Hollow Pen shrinks to 
where it is at the end of the chapter. That is, if you 
have two empty spots at the end of the chapter, the next 
chapter starts with the pen two slots smaller, and you 
can never regain those slots again! NEVER! Unless you 
restart the game or something like that.

So, you know, just make sure to keep an eye out for Sox. 
Whenever you go somewhere, move left/right to see if Sox 
is there, and if he is, tap on him. Simple enough. Don't 
worry, because I'll warn you at every "last chance to get 
some Chrons before the Hollow Pen shrinks" opportunity.

Head over to Chronos and talk to Olivia, because she's a 
person in the flashback down the street from the car 
accident. Talk to her about what happened, and she says 
that Sara Tenneson at the library was there last night.

Go to the library. Emily and Ashley are outside, and 
Emily uses her "psychic powers" to tell where you need to 
open the next Time Hole. She'll do this for pretty much 
the rest of the game. It's the game's way of helping out 
gamers who are stuck. Of course, if you're reading this, 
you already have access to a walkthrough, so you don't 
really have a need for Emily's help. Oh well.

Go in the library and talk to Sara. She tells you all the 
details of the flashback. You know what you have to do 
now, right? Go to the place where the flashback occurs 
(which is the intersection, then walking right), confirm 
the flashback in the flashback menu, then it's Time 
Hollow, er, Time.

Open a hole near the refrigerator on the truck, and 
examine the ropes.

Kori shows up, and there's a two-second animation of Kori 
giggling. Kori says that she can see the flashbacks when 
time changes just like Ethan can. The Hollow Pen is 
invisible to her, however.

Kori confirms that you only see flashbacks when someone 
changes the past. Ethan asks if someone else has a Hollow 
Pen, but Kori evades the question and says she won't 
interfere with his current Time Hole. Then she walks off.

Mysterious girl, that Kori. Ethan then tightens the ropes 
to the fridge, so it won't fall off. Then you get some 
flashbacks of nothing happening to the dog or Olivia. 

The scene cuts to Chronos, where Ben is moping because 
Olivia has a new boyfriend, Aaron. She called him to take 
her home from work, because she can't ride her bike, what 
with the key missing and brakes cut.

Ethan figures it's not worth it to change the past so 
Olivia doesn't find a boyfriend. Sorry, Ben. Ethan goes 
home instead, and remembers that he forgot to look for 
information on his parents.

Ethan wonders if someone else has a Hollow Pen, and if 
so, why would that person change the past so Ashley goes 
missing and Olivia gets killed? Could this person be 
behind the disappearance of Ethan's parents? And hey, 
what's up with Kori?

A mysterious conversation occurs, where someone thinks 
that Ethan could be a threat. The person decides to wait 
and see, and if Ethan is a threat, he'll be...eliminated.

...Yeah, I'm pretty sure that the person who said that is 
whoever it is who keeps changing the past so bad things 
happen. Not sure why the person talks about giving Ethan 
the Hollow Pen, though...because Ethan's dad was the one 
who did that. Oh well, that's the end of the chapter!

004d-Chapter Three: The Day of Memories

The chapter starts with Ethan's plan to talk to Kori at 
school being ruined because there's no school that day. 
So instead, Ethan chats with Morris and gives him a brief 
overview of what's happened with the Hollow Pen.

Morris is reminded of parallel worlds, because they used 
to have a book called "The Mystery of Parallel Worlds" in 
their secret hideout. Ethan never read it.

Morris leaves to take a phone call, while Ethan decides 
he doesn't feel like finding the parallel worlds book. 
Morris comes back, and Ethan gets a phone call from Vin.

Vin says to get to Chronos right away! Ben murdered 
someone! WOAH! Didn't see THAT coming! Better head to 
Chronos, quick!

There's blood on the ground, and on Ben's hands. Vin is 
forcibly restraining Ben. They're too busy fighting to 
talk, so talk to Jacob instead, because Jacob is 
apparently the little boy who sees a lot of death.

Ben calms down once Ethan looks at Jacob, so now you can 
talk to everyone. Ben says it's not his fault. Morris 
thinks that a sharp blade killed whoever it is who died. 
Talk to Vin a few times, and he says that when he showed 
up, Aaron was lying on the ground, and an ambulance took 
him away.

Talk to Jacob, who has been hanging around this whole 
time even though he doesn't know anyone there. Everyone 
introduces themselves. Now you can interrogate Jacob, who 
says that Ben got really angry when he saw Lucky. 
With all the screaming and yelling, Lucky ran away.

Now ask Ben about what happened. Ben hit Lucky, and it 
looked like he was going to hit Jacob. That's when Aaron 
showed up and they fought.

Hmmm...let me get this straight here. Ben sees a boy 
taking his dog for a walk, freaks out and starts hitting 
the dog? Then, when Aaron tries to stop him, Ben kills 
Aaron? Woah. Better change Ben's profile on the character 
screen so it no longer describes Ben as "kind of a wuss". 
"Needs anger management classes" would better describe 

Ask Vin what he thinks. Vin thinks it all adds up, 
because Ben hates Aaron. Then ask Morris what to do, and 
Vin takes Ben away.

Morris and Ethan decide to go to the station and look for 
Lucky. Instead, they meet Kori. Ethan wants to ask her a 
few questions, but not with Morris there. Morris says 
they're looking for a dog.

Kori leaves, and so do Morris and Ethan.

The game switches to outside a store (an antique shop 
named Aeon). Morris wonders if this place is to blame for 
Ben being subject to fits of rage. See, this used to be 
their secret hideout, where they kept a dog named Shiloh.

That was one of Ethan's flashbacks--the dog tied up to a 
tree is apparently Shiloh. Morris says there was a 
lightning strike during a typhoon some years ago. And 
that was during Ben's day to take care of Shiloh, but Ben 
forgot. So Shiloh died.

Right, that makes sense. Ben feels guilty that he let his 
dog Shiloh die. So, naturally, he decided to hit Lucky. 
Yeah...makes total sense.

Anyway, now it's time to search for Lucky. Where Lucky is 
changes randomly each game, so you're stuck searching 
without any help from me. Sorry! Make sure to move left 
and right at each location, and go to every location, and 
eventually, you'll find Lucky.

Lucky is whining. Morris takes a shine to Lucky 
immediately. It's hard to believe that Lucky attacked 
Ben. Head back to Chronos to give Lucky to Jason.

Vin has an update from the hospital: Aaron is dead. Ben 
went to the police station to turn himself in. Vin leaves 
to find Ben, and tells you to take Lucky inside the cafe 
(where Jacob is).

Lucky barks. Somehow, this lets Ethan find a pair of 
pliers...a pair that's covered in blood. Why did Ben use 
them to kill Aaron? It's a weird choice for a murder 
weapon, to be sure.

Jacob comes out. He says the pliers were lying on the 
ground near the bike, and Ben picked them up. Jacob then 
takes Lucky home.

You can now verify the flashback of Ashley and Emily 
talking outside of Chronos. The information about the 
flashback is the same as in the last chapter.

Ethan wants to use the Hollow Pen to see if, at the time 
of the Ashley/Emily talk, there were pliers anywhere. It 
turns out the pliers ARE there, near the base of the 
front row of bushes, a bit to the right of Emily's legs.

Examine the pliers to take them. Hmmm...those are 
probably the pliers that were used to cut Olivia's 
brakes. Well, in any case, without pliers, Ben can't pick 
up pliers and kill Aaron.

You then get a flashback of Aaron beating up Ben. 
Great, without pliers, Ben ends up losing the fight and 
being sent to the hospital. Apparently, Aaron is a cop.

Ethan asks Morris to explain everything in order. Morris 
says a dog walked by. The dog startled Ben, so Ben got in 
a fight with Jacob/Lucky. Aaron came out of the cafe and 
saw the fight, so he decided to pound on Ben. And now Ben 
is in the hospital with a head injury.

Yay, plot explication!

Head to the train station to go to the hospital. Kori 
shows up, and says that Ethan's revision process 
apparently didn't work so well. That's right, she has 
flashbacks, too.

Morris asks what's happening, but Kori says it's none of 
his business. Kori tells Ethan that he should keep 
trying, but he should be careful that he doesn't run out 
of Time.

Kori leaves, and Ethan gives Morris a general overview of 
his Time Hollow Pen Powers. Morris agrees to help, and 
asks what they can do to stop the fight. Tell Morris both 
of Ethan's ideas (twice). Neither of the ideas are any 
good, so Morris tells you to just take him to the places 
where flashbacks have occurred--places where you can make 
Time Holes.

So now you have to go to where you've had flashbacks of: 
the street to the right of the intersection, in front of 
Chronos, and the dumpster near school. Morris shoots all 
of them down as worthless.

Visiting all those places makes Morris go to Aeon, the 
store where the secret hideout used to be. Morris figures 
that you could somehow save Shiloh, which will make Ben 
not depressed about dogs, so Ben won't beat up Lucky, so 
there won't be a fight! Good plan!

Morris and Ethan go inside to check out the store. The 
secret hideout was where the backroom is now. Ethan 
decides he needs to verify his flashback first, so he 
asks Morris a little about Shiloh.

Morris doesn't know WHEN the typhoon hit (just the 
general date, ten years ago), so it's off to the library! 
Go see Sara the librarian and ask for a newspaper article 
about the typhoon/lightning storm. Ask for it by event, 
and she provides you with an exact date/time.

Go to Aeon (you can't go in until you confirm the 
flashback of Shiloh). The shopkeeper doesn't want to let 
you in the back, but it turns out that he's not only a 
Kako High alumnus, but he had Jack Twombley as a teacher, 
just like Ethan and Morris.

Well, hey, that means he HAS to let them in the back of 
the store now! Kako High men look out for each other.

The shopkeeper mentions two girls who bought a clock from 
him the other day. Oh, that was Emily and Ashley buying 
Ethan's birthday present. This is a plot point that Ethan 
picks up on later (because if you check, the present on 
Ethan's desk is NOT a clock), but he doesn't notice it 
now because it's Time Hole TIME!

Morris grabs Ethan's hand and asks for help. See, Morris 
just bombed a test. He wants Ethan to use his time powers 
to make it so Morris passes the test. Okay, we'll have to 
remember to do that after we help Ben.

Open a Time Hole around the rope that's holding Shiloh. 
Tap on the rope, then click item. Select the pliers and 
use them on the rope. That should do it!

Time changes, so there's a flashback of Shiloh getting 
free and the guys with Shiloh.

Huh? Morris disappears? Why is that?

The shopkeeper comes back and talks with Ethan. He and 
Ethan exchange contact info and Ethan leaves Aeon.

Since the chapter is almost over, take the time now to 
explore the town, looking for Sox. Find Sox at the 
various spots in town over and over again until your 
Hollow Pen is all filled up. If you don't, your Hollow 
Pen becomes shorter in the next chapter.

Once you have your Hollow Pen filled, go inside Chronos 
to meet with the gang. Everyone looks fine, and Ben is 
apparently looking after Shiloh now. Great!

Everyone leaves, and Ethan sees Morris. Apparently, due 
to Shiloh's influence, Morris quit school to follow his 
dream of taking care of dogs. Well...at least he's happy!

Kori then shows up. She asks if he did any better this 
time. Ethan says he thinks so. Kori tells Ethan that, due 
to the fact that time changed, no one remembers the 
previous reality (no one except Ethan and Kori, 

Ethan asks Kori who she is. She says she doesn't have a 
pen, but she knows people who do...like Ethan's father. 
She met his dad a long time ago, but now she's like 
Ethan--she doesn't know if he's still alive.

Kori asks who gave Ethan the pen, because it belongs to 
the Kairos family. The pen is the Kairos family 
inheritance, having been passed down for generations. Or 
at least, that's what the note that came with the pen 
said. And Ethan's dad signed that note.

Ethan decides to take this lead and run with it. If it's 
really a Kairos family heirloom, maybe Uncle Derek knows 
something about it.

Cool, so Shiloh is alive, Ben's not a murderer, and 
Morris is now a happy dog walker instead of a stressed 
student. Sounds like a good day of Time changing! End 

004e-Chapter Four: The Day Far Away

The chapter starts on Uncle Derek's day off, with Ethan 
coming to talk to him. Ask him about the Hollow Pen 
twice, and ask him about family heirlooms twice.

Uncle Derek can't see the Hollow Pen, and he doesn't know 
about any heirlooms. Uncle Derek says that Ethan's 
parents disappeared chasing after an old accident. It's a 
traffic accident that happened around the time Derek was 

See, at the time, Irving Onegin was a baby. His mother 
died in that accident. He went to high school with Derek, 
but no one knows what happened to him after that.

Wait a minute...Irving Onegin...that's the man who runs 

And wait another minute! Irving said two girls bought a 
clock from him, but that was several realities ago! He 
should have no memory of that!

Go upstairs to double-check that the clock is gone. Yep, 
it's gone all right. There's some sort of mystery here...

Go downstairs again, and Derek gets upset that Ethan 
seems to have ignored him. Ethan apologizes for leaving 
in the middle of the conversation, then whips out 
Irving's business card.

Derek suddenly gets up and leaves to see Irving. Huh. 
Wonder what they have to talk about...as does Ethan. 
Maybe Uncle Derek knows something about the flashbacks? 
Maybe Irving has a Hollow Pen? Who knows?

Derek comes back, gets something from his study, then 
leaves again. Hey, his study is open! All right! Time to 
sneak inside and see if Uncle Derek is hiding anything!

In the study, you can look around. On the desk is 
Ashley's cell phone (pink with a dog attached). On the 
shelves on the right, Ethan finds a scrapbook that has a 
date alongside a missing newspaper article.

Take the tiny key on the desk and then click on the 
cabinet. Ethan automatically uses the key on the cabinet. 
Inside is a yearbook for Kako High. Yep, Uncle Derek and 
Irving were in the same class, all right...wait a minute, 

Is that...KORI? Kori was in the same class as Uncle Derek 
and Irving? But Kori hasn't aged a bit, while Uncle Derek 
aged about twenty years, and Irving seems to have aged 
about fifty. The mystery thickens!

An emblem falls out of the yearbook. Some sort of flying 
hourglass design. Odd.

Check out the drawers below the shelves on the right for 
a note from Dad. The note says that the Hollow Pen uses 
up time from the lifespan of whoever holds it. Basically, 
every time you use the Hollow Pen, you get a little 
older. That's why Dad and Irving look much older than 
they should look--they've both used the Hollow Pen 

Leave the study. FLASHBACK TIME! There's a flashback of a 
bus accident and...someone falling? Mysterious.

Head over to the library. Huh, Sara's not there. There's 
some guy who doesn't know what he's doing instead.

Head to the intersection, where Morris is trying to get 
Sara to become one of his customers. Sara says she might 
hire him to walk her dog, then she leaves.

Oh, good, she left to go to the library. So, go to the 
library and NOW you can ask for information on newspaper 
article that was in the scrapbook in Uncle Derek's study. 
Ask for it by date.

It's about a bus accident. The driver died and Mary 
Onegin died, but her son Irving Onegin didn't. 
Hmmm...that must be the flashback of the bus accident we 
saw. So...did Irving change the past concerning that 
accident somehow? And what's up with Uncle Derek meeting 

FLASHBACK TIME! These flashbacks are identical to the 
ones before! So...somebody must have opened a Time Hole 
somewhere, but things ended up exactly the same.

You know, I'm with Ethan, I don't understand what the 
heck is going on, but apparently Uncle Derek and Irving 
Onegin are involved. Uncle Derek isn't home, and Aeon is 
closed, so you can't talk to either of them. Bummer!

Well, guess there's nothing else to do besides go to the 
site of the accident. It's the new spot on your map, 
called Clockwork Hill. Confirm your flashback in order to 
open a Time Hole.

Open a hole near the windows/door of the bus and try to 
talk to whoever's inside.

Who's inside? Mary Onegin. Woah! She's beautiful! She has 
a Hollow Pen, too, which is why she's not frozen in time 
at the moment.

Mary takes her son and leaves the bus, which is simple 
enough to do now that time has stopped for everyone but 
her. Ethan shuts the Time Hole when she's a safe distance 

Great! Now Mary should live, which means Ethan's parents 
won't investigate her death, so they shouldn't 
mysteriously disappear!

FLASHBACK TIME! The flashbacks are...identical to the 
ones before. Well, crap. Looks like we didn't change time 
by saving Mary Onegin after all. Well, why the heck not?

At Aeon, Irving sees the flashbacks and gets mad 
(presumably because his mother died). Uncle Derek asks 
about it, but Irving changes the subject. He asks if 
Derek told anyone about the accident.

Derek says yes; he told his nephew. Oh, no! Uncle Derek! 
Keep Ethan out of this!

Derek says he hasn't shown the letter to anyone. Then he 
asks Irving a few questions. Irving denies knowing 
Timothy Kairos, or what happened to Kori. Derek thinks 
Irving is lying, so he promises to come back later and 
keep bugging Irving about Kori/the bus accident/Timothy 
Kairos until Irving tells the truth.

Uncle Derek leaves Aeon and sees Kori. Kori and Derek 
both have a "What the--? It's YOU!" moment. Irving then 
jumps out, grabs Kori, and throws her inside Aeon. Irving 
shuts and locks the door behind him.

Derek demands to know what's going on. Irving says it's 
not big deal; this reality will change soon enough.

Back to Ethan. He's kind of sweaty, and wondering why the 
changes he made didn't seem to take. He decides to go to 
the library and see if anything changed.

So go to the library and talk to Sara. She gives you the 
newspaper article on the bus accident. It's the same as 
before. That's weird! Ethan got Mary off the bus and 
safely away--why wasn't that enough to save her? 
Something fishy is going on here...

Head back to the bus accident scene. Let's try saving 
Mary again. Open a Time Hole near the bus and talk 
through the window to Mary. This time, Ethan doesn't 
chit-chat with Mary. He tells her to get out as fast as 

Mary thanks Ethan and leaves. Shut the Time Hole 
and...oh, DARN IT! Same flashbacks again! WHAT THE HECK! 
Why is it that getting Mary off of the bus does NOT 
prevent her from dying in the bus accident??

Ethan's worn out from using the Hollow Pen too much. He 
wants to get home and rest.

Meanwhile, at Aeon, Kori and Irving react to the 
flashbacks. Irving gets mad with Kori and accuses her of 
meeting with Ethan. Kori lies and says she's done no such 
thing. Irving is convinced by this, fortunately. I'm 
starting to get the feeling that Irving is not such a 
nice guy.

You can explore a bit, and see Olivia and Aaron talking 
about her bike at the street off the intersection. You 
can also see Morris walking dogs at the park. You can 
also see Vin and Ben at Chronos.

Head to Ethan's house and talk to Uncle Derek. Derek says 
that Irving didn't give him any new leads on the 
disappearance of Ethan's parents. Ethan wonders what they 
REALLY talked about, and Derek gets mad that, once again, 
Ethan spaces out in the middle of a conversation. Derek 
leaves to go to bed in a huff.

Ethan figures there's time to go to Aeon. Go there and 
it's still locked. Well, that's it for today, I guess.

Head to Ethan's house. Mr. Twombley is there. Twombley 
says the teachers are rotating on a night watch due to 
suspicious characters. Mr. Twombley talks about how he 
used to teach Uncle Derek, and they exchanged letters 
based on time-proverbs.


Anyway, go inside Ethan's house and head to his bedroom. 
He feels like crap, even after he goes to sleep and wakes 
up the next morning.

Head to school, where Ethan sees Kori. He tries to ask 
her about changing the past, but Kori interrupts and asks 
if Ethan is killing the woman in the bus accident.

Ethan says he's trying to save her. Kori responds by 
asking if Ethan tried to save her, why are the pictures 
always the same? Ethan says he doesn't know. Kori asks if 
that's true.

Ashley and Emily interrupt the conversation. Darn it! 
Emily is crying, but Ethan is too preoccupied with Kori 
to deal with Emily's drama right now.

The game skips to the end of school. Kori says if Ethan 
is telling the truth, why doesn't he try to do things her 
way: pull someone through the hole from their time into 
the present.

There is a problem with that, namely, the fact that 
people who time travel get left out of the flow of time, 
but that's better than not saving anyone at all.

Ethan figures this means that somebody pulled Kori out of 
the flow of time at one point. Ethan asks her if she 
knows a man named Irving. Is he the one who pulled Kori 
through a Time Hole?

The person who pulled her through a Time Hole wasn't 
Irving, it was...

FLASHBACK TIME! Ethan winds up back in his house.

Check out your flashbacks. Apparently, Ethan lives alone 
in his house now, somebody died, and Uncle Derek has been 
inside Chronos. Jeez, things are getting weird.

If you go to Aeon, you meet Olivia, who doesn't know you. 
She's currently looking for a job. That's odd.

Go to Chronos, where Ethan meets Kori. She's looking at 
the Chronos sign, which is the same as the emblem that 
fell out of Uncle Derek's yearbook.

Kori tells you to save your uncle. She knows who changed 
the past, but she can't tell you. Just save your uncle, 
that's all she can say. Gee, thanks for the help, Kori.

Ethan and Kori go inside Chronos together to talk to Eva. 
Once inside, look at Kori, Aaron, Eva, the table and a 

This lets you chat with Eva. Ask her both questions 
twice. Eva knows Derek Kairos--he's the cafe's former 
owner. Derek apparently did really badly on opening day 
and had to get involved with loan sharks. He managed to 
pay off his debts, but had to sell Chronos.

Derek was killed two years after he sold Chronos. It had 
nothing to do with the cafe, but Eva was still worried 
that she'd hear from loan sharks someday, because she 
heard a rumor that Derek was killed for his debts.

Kori asks why the cafe is named Chronos. After all, 
Chronos was the Greek god of time (not to be confused 
with Chronus, father of Zeus). Speaking of Greek fun, 
"kairos" is Greek for "the right time".

Eva says the cafe is called Chronos because Derek named 
it Chronos. Sheesh, I could have guessed that. Ethan and 
Kori leave, and Kori tells Ethan to help his uncle.

Ethan decides he needs more information before he can do 
anything. Where do we go when we need information? 
Wikipedia! Except Ethan doesn't have a computer, so he 
has to go to the library instead.

Ask Sara about Uncle Derek's death by event. She gives 
you a newspaper article about it. Isn't it amazing how 
she finds the article in less than five seconds, when all 
the information Ethan gives her is "there was a murder 
sometime between twelve and three years ago"?

The article says that Derek was killed while 
investigating the bus accident. Hmmm...could it be that 
Irving is involved with Uncle Derek's death?

Answer: YES. He's a creepy old guy. How could he NOT be 

The newspaper article mentions a memo found on the body. 
Ethan seems interested in the memo. You know what that 
means! We have to open a Time Hole and get that memo!

Confirm the flashback of Uncle Ethan's death. Head to the 
train station (talk to Ben if you want--he's found a girl 
to crush on), then take the train to the site of the 

Open a Time Hole here and examine the body bag. Ethan 
finds the memo, which is...the contact info Ethan gave to 
Irving back in Chapter Three! Irving, what are you 
playing at?!

Taking the memo changes the past so Ethan never finds the 
memo. Um...because the memo isn't in the past, so the 
newspaper article didn't mention a memo. That means Ethan 
didn't go back to find the memo.

Head back home and go to bed. Ethan figures that he'll 
have to do something about the flashback with Uncle Derek 
in Chronos.

The game skips to the next day. Talk to Vin and Ben about 
how to make a cafe popular. Vin says free refills, Ben 
says pretty waitresses in maid uniforms (Ben has an 
active imagination). Talk to Vin and Ben until they're 
all out of ideas.

Leave school (you can talk to Mr. Twombley on the way 
out, but he has no ideas on how to make a good cafe). Go 
to the library and talk to Ben. Ben's hot for Sara the 
Librarian. This makes Ethan decide to emphasize the 
PRETTY GIRLS part of the list of ideas on how to make a 
cafe do well.

Go to Chronos and ask Aaron how to make a cafe do well. 
Like the rest of the horny male cast members of the game, 
he says that it's pretty girls. Apparently, Aaron is hot 
for Eva in this particular reality.

Go to the park and talk to Morris. He mentions 
atmosphere, that is, a cool place for casual studying. 
Geez, even when he's a high school dropout, Morris is big 
on studying.

Since the chapter is almost over, take the time now to 
explore the town, looking for Sox. Find Sox at the 
various spots in town over and over again until your 
Hollow Pen is all filled up. If you don't, your Hollow 
Pen becomes shorter in the next chapter.

Confirm the flashback of Uncle Derek and examine the list 
of ideas on your items menu. Ethan thinks the list should 
work. Go to Chronos and open a Time Hole near the bar.

Uncle Derek is looking at flyers that say Chronos is a 
hotbed of corruption. Hmmm...so THAT'S why Chronos failed 
as a cafe. I bet Irving made those posters.

Put the idea memo on the counter left of Uncle Derek. 
Hey, it works! Uncle Derek uses those ideas, and Chronos 
is SO successful that he still owns it! (And he makes 
Olivia wear a maid outfit...hee hee...I can't believe he 
used that suggestion).

Derek tells the semi-touching story of Ethan's father. 
Timothy always told Derek that he could never be 
successful running a cafe...but one day, he left a list 
of suggestions for making the business successful. Fueled 
with these suggestions and the knowledge that his brother 
really DID believe in him, Derek turned Chronos into a 

Of course, we know that Ethan was the one who wrote that 
letter, not because he believed in Derek, but because he 
didn't want to live alone. It's a good story nonetheless.

Ethan goes home. On his bed is WOAH! SOX IS SUPER FAT
IN THIS REALITY! Oh, wait, it's a stuffed animal. Aw, 
it's a birthday present from Uncle Derek! Wow, in this 
reality, Uncle Derek is a really nice guy, giving gifts 
and telling touching stories!

Irving calls and tells Ethan to show up at the scene of 
the bus accident tomorrow at 6 AM. If Ethan doesn't 
show...something unpleasant may happen to his life. Not 
that showing up is a guarantee nothing bad will happen...

Either way, the day is over, so that means the chapter is 

004f-Chapter Five: The Day of Resolution

Ethan wakes up early the next morning and leaves without 
telling Uncle Derek anything. Sure, Ethan, good plan. 
Meet up with the guy who's responsible for Uncle Derek's 
death two realities ago without telling anyone. I'm sure 
nothing bad will happen.

Irving accuses Ethan of killing his mother over and over 
again. No matter how many times Irving tries to save his 
mother from the bus accident, she gets back on the bus 
and dies.

Humph, like it's Ethan's fault that Irving's mom is 
suicidal. Ethan had the same problem when HE tried to 
save her.

Irving then blames Ethan's father. He sent her a letter, 
asking her to see him. The accident occurred when she was 
on the way to see him. Irving says he HAD proof--Uncle 
Derek brought it when he came to see Irving in the last 
chapter. But since Uncle Derek isn't a reporter now...the 
letter is lost.

Irving again accuses Ethan of killing his mother 
repeatedly. Then Irving whips out a knife and tries to 
kill Ethan. WOAH!

Uncle Derek shows up. It turns out Derek followed Ethan, 
because Ethan was as white as a sheet when he left the 
house super-early with no explanation. A good thing he 
did that, too.

Derek says he's calling the cops. Irving complains that 
the Kairos boys seem to exist just to torture him. 
Right...THEY'RE the ones who are torturers. Who's the one 
with the knife who tried to stab someone?

Irving practically admits that he got rid of Ethan's 
parents, then he pulls out his Hollow Pen. Kori shows up 
and tells him to stop, but she's too late. Irving jumps 
in the Time Hole and shuts it behind him.

Reality changes, naturally. FLASHBACK TIME. Ethan wakes 
up at home, and Kori calls him. She wants to talk. She's 
at the place where Aeon was.

Go downstairs. Ethan mentions coffee to Uncle Derek, and 
Derek gets mad. Aw...that means he doesn't own Chronos in 
this reality! Not cool!

Head to Aeon, which is gone. It's just an empty lot now. 
Talk to Kori.

Kori FINALLY tells us her whole backstory. She was 
sixteen years old when somebody pulled her through a Time 
Hole. Ethan's father was the one who pulled her through. 
See, somebody had pushed her off a roof, and he saved her 
from dying.

He had opened the Hole from three days in the future, and 
he promised he would find a way to change the past so she 
wouldn't get pushed off the roof and killed.

But no such luck. Kori was forced to put up with a lot of 
reality changing, but none that changed her bring pushed 
off a roof. Then, twelve years ago, Ethan's dad went 

Irving showed up then. Irving promised to help. But, 
basically, all Irving did was use Kori to spy on Ethan. 
Ethan sees how badly Kori is suffering and wishes he 
could help her...

Ethan wonders what happened with Irving. Obviously, 
Irving didn't change the part of the past where Kori got 
pushed off a roof/pulled through a Hole.

Kori asks if Ethan burned his hand. Ethan looks at the 
hand. UGH! NASTY! Ethan's got a burn! He remembers a 
flashback of the secret hideout catching fire. Ethan got 
the burn while escaping from the blaze.

Kori says that the tree that was here (in the empty lot) 
was hit by lightning. There wasn't a fire...

Say, where are the others? Were they in the hideout at 
the time of the fire? Ethan tells Kori that they should 
go to school and check, but Kori says she can't. Irving 
pulled strings to get her into Kako High before, which 
means she's most likely not a student in this reality.

Kori leaves to see if anything else has changed, while 
Ethan goes to school. Vin, Ben and Morris are all 

Then it's SHOCKER TIME as Irving shows up. Irving is 
going by the name of Jack Twombly. NO! Irving took over 
Mr. Twombly's life?

Ethan runs out, and Irving--I mean, Jack--ignores him. 
Leave the school, and on the way, Ethan notices that Ben, 
Morris and Vin don't have lockers.

In the school yard, Ashley and Emily are standing around 
instead of being good gym students. Talk to them. Ethan 
asks Ashley where Vin is, and she gets mad at the totally 
heartless reminder of her brother's death. Emily runs 

Ethan leaves school, deciding that he has to check out 
this accident where Vin, Ben and Morris died. Go to the 
library and request the article by event.

Sara finds the article. Apparently, there was arson at 
the secret hideout ten years ago.

You should know what to do by now. Confirm the flashback 
about the fire at the secret hideout. Then go to the 
empty lot and open a Time Hole. Examine the fire to put 
it out.

FLASHBACK TIME. You see a lot of flashbacks that you've 
seen before.

Irving shows up and congratulates Ethan on undoing the 
fire at the vacant lot. Ethan accuses Irving of starting 
it, but Irving insists that he's Jack Twombly, not 

Kori shows up, and Jack explains. If you send a million 
dollars into the past, you have...one million dollars. 
Two million dollars for a while, but it turns back to one 
million dollars eventually.

Apparently, if something goes into the past, it exists 
until it reaches the time it was sent into the past. As 
soon as it reaches, the thing magically disappears.

So, Irving disappeared. He went through the Time Hole 
yesterday. That means he existed in the past all the way 
up until yesterday.

So Jack is the grown-up version of baby Irving that the 
time-warped Irving saved. Gotcha. The bad news is that 
Jack is pretty much just as nuts as Irving is. I mean, 
taking over Mr. Twombly's life and impersonating him? 
Yeah. That's a pretty crazy course of action to take.

Jack swears revenge against Ethan for killing his mother. 
Apparently, Irving didn't save Mary Onegin, even by going 
back in time. Jack says, "Now it's time for Revenge Part 
Deux--Revenge: The Return!"

Jack laughs like the evil villain he is and leaves. Kori 
and Ethan decide to split up and see what has changed in 
this new reality (again).

Head to Chronos to check in with the gang. Vin and Morris 
are worried about Ben. Ah, shoot, Ethan forgot to save 
Shiloh! Ben ended up killing Aaron again!

We see Jack laughing evilly and being threatening. Then 
reality changes. FLASHBACK TIME! This flashback is of an 
empty classroom.

Ethan is with Ben and Vin at the train station. Ben and 
Vin say that Morris was killed in a classroom. Examine 
the flashback of the empty classroom in order to talk to 
Ben and Vin about Morris' death.

Ask them about each thing twice to get the details. Ethan 
decides he has to do something quick...

But not quick enough. Jack, outside Chronos, changes time 
AGAIN. FLASHBACK TIME! Now Emily and Ashley don't meet 
outside Chronos.

Ethan is transported to his room. He gets a phone call 
from Kori. You can stop and listen to Ethan's whole 
ringtone here. Yep, his ringtone is the game's theme 

Ben calls about going to see Vin. Vin's probably taking 
the brutal beating and death of Ashley and Emily pretty 
hard. They were BEATEN TO DEATH??

You can go to Vin's house, but Vin is pretty useless 
right now. So now you get to wander around a bit. You can 
watch Aaron talk to Jacob about the murderer in the park 
(yay for secondary characters interacting!) and see Eva 
depressed at Chronos.

You need to go to the vacant lot and talk to the police. 
The detective says that they've gotten a clue about the 
serial killer.

Once that happens, you can go to school and talk to the 
student by the lockers (Ethan doesn't talk to him unless 
he talks to the detective first. Weird). Ask him 
everything to get the details on Ashley and her envelope 
at the school (again).

Confirm the flashback of Ashley at her locker, and open a 
Time Hole. Examine the locker door to have Ethan take the 
envelope and write a warning note on it.

FLASHBACK TIME! Ashley and Emily get saved! YAY!

Then, Jack immediately shows up and changes things so 
they get killed again. Not yay!

Go to Vin to see what happened. Vin asks if Ethan killed 
Ashley and Morris. The police have evidence that Ethan 
lured Ashley and Emily to Chronos, and Vin is convinced 
that Ethan's a killer.

The police are now on the watch for Ethan at the school, 
the train station, Chronos, the park, and Ethan's house. 
If you go there, the police shout at Ethan. Ethan runs 
away, and the police...don't chase him. Makes sense. I 
mean, if a murder suspect is running to avoid capture, 
it's okay to let him go, right?

Go to the library, where Emily is worried that Ethan will 
kill her. Ethan gets Emily to talk a bit about Ashley. 
Ashley apparently lost her cell phone. Emily runs away.

Go to the vacant lot and talk to the detective. He 
mentions the note on the envelope. So THAT'S why Ethan is 
a prime suspect!

Head to school to meet Kori. She gives Ethan a pep talk, 
and he decides to carry on. They talk and make a plan: 
get Ashley's cell phone, so she can call Emily and tell 
her not to go to Chronos.

The cell phone is in Uncle Derek's study. Head to home, 
and Kori fools to stupid policemen who chase imaginary 
people instead of murder suspects. This lets Ethan go 

Ethan talks with Uncle Derek, who believes Ethan is 
innocent. Way to go, Uncle Derek! You're a lot more 
faithful than Ethan's "best" friend, Vin!

Ethan asks about the cell phone. Derek, being an 
investigative reporter, knows that something is up. After 
brief questioning, Ethan admits he snuck into the study.

Derek gives you the cell phone, and after a promise that 
he's not up to anything bad, lets you leave. Head back to 
the school with Kori and open a Time Hole by the lockers.

Use the cell phone on Ashley open locker. Ethan writes a 
note on the envelope--only this time, he asks her to make 
some cookies with Emily, instead of telling her to avoid 

FLASHBACK TIME! Looks like a job well done!

Kori calls Ethan and asks if everything's okay. Ethan 
says he'll check. Kori then reminds Ethan that 
Jack/Irving is behind the vacant lot being closed off. So 
that means you'll probably have to change the past at the 
vacant lot.

Head to the vacant lot, which is NOT closed off. Head 
back in it, and confirm the flashback of Shiloh at the 
secret hideout. Then open a Time Hole and free Shiloh 
like you did before.

FLASHBACK TIME! Morris becomes a high school dropout 
again. Well, it's better than being dead, I guess.

Kori calls Ethan and asks how things are. Ethan thinks 
they're okay. Ben and Vin joke about how Ethan's got a 

Ethan leaves Chronos and sees Morris. Jack shows up and 
threatens to do MORE evil stuff because Ethan hasn't 
suffered enough.

Go back home and talk to Uncle Derek. Ask them about all 
three things twice. You don't learn much except that 
Uncle Derek knows Kori.

We then see Jack. He has a letter.

Ethan asks Derek if he can see the letter to Mary Onegin. 
Yep, Timothy Kairos' name is on the letter. Nope, Ethan 
doesn't know why.

Jack opens a Time Hole and drops the letter in the 
mailbox. He says, "Later, Kairos."

FLASHBACK TIME! Oh, man! Uncle Derek is killed again! Not 

Head to the library. Kori is waiting for you inside. 
She's conveniently found an article on the death of Uncle 
Derek. Apparently, there was a gas explosion at the 
Eterna Grill. Jack must have lured Derek to the site of 
the explosion!

Head to Eterna Grill (by the train station). Ethan and 
Kori try to figure out how to save Derek. No luck.

Talk to Kori, and she suggests that you send her through 
the Hole. She can take Derek a safe distance away, and 
come back through the Hole. Awesome idea! Kori is already 
out of the flow of time, so it shouldn't affect her at 

Open a hole near the front door of the Eterna Grill. Look 
at Uncle Derek and Kori goes to save him. Ethan wonders 
what's up between Kori and his uncle while she does...

Kori takes Derek RIDICULOUSLY FAR AWAY. Seriously, he'd 
be safe if she only took him HALF that distance. She then 
slips a note in his pocket and says, "Please don't die, 
Derek...Let's meet again someday."

Hmmm...Derek and Kori, sitting in a tree...

Kori comes back. Shut the hole and YAY! Derek is safe! We 
also get a different flashback of the explosion, one 
with...Ethan's parents?!

So THAT'S the flashback that we've seen for ages! It's of 
Ethan's parents dying in the explosion. And since we 
already know where the explosion is, we can open a Time 
Hole to it immediately!

Since the rest of the chapter is all a giant cutscene, 
you need to take the time now to explore the town, 
looking for Sox. Find Sox at the various spots in town 
over and over again until your Hollow Pen is all filled 
up. If you don't, your Hollow Pen becomes shorter in the 
next chapter.

Once you've gotten your Hollow Pen filled up, confirm 
your flashback of the explosion (not the one from inside 
the building, the one of the outside of the building), 
and open a Time Hole at the Eterna Grill.

Jack shows up and stabs Ethan in the leg. Kori gets down 
to protect Ethan from Jack. Jack hits Kori twice, and 
laughs at her for having feelings for Ethan.

Before Jack steps on Kori, Uncle Derek comes and wrestles 
him down. Derek knew to show up at that time, because he 
read the letter Kori gave him twelve years ago. Hmmm, so 
Kori gave Derek a letter so the two could meet. Yep, 
they've got a thing going on...

Kori helps Ethan open a Time Hole. Ethan makes a remark 
about Kori having feelings for Uncle Derek. Oooo, Ethan's 

Ethan tells Derek that he can pass out if he wants, just 
keep Jack held down. That doesn't make sense, because 
Derek CAN'T keep Jack held down while he's passed out, 
but that's what Ethan says anyway.

Open a Time Hole near the door to the building. Talk to 
the door, and we get a repeat cutscene of Timothy and 
Pamela in the burning building. Timothy picks up Pamela 
and leaves through the Time Hole.

Timothy asks if Ethan is Ethan. Kori says they can chat 
later. They have to close the Hole now.

Closing the Hole changes reality. FLASHBACK TIME! Ethan's 
parents aren't dead.

For plot convenience, all the characters are still 
hanging around Eterna Grill, even though they shouldn't 
be there now that reality has changed.

Ethan doesn't have the pen anymore, though. Timothy says 
it's no problem, because he still has the pen. Then he 
looks and...where's the Hollow Pen???

Jack says Timothy can't see the Hollow Pen that's there, 
because he was pulled through a Time Hole. Then Jack says 
all he has to do is kill Ethan, and he'll be the only one 
who can use the Hollow Pen. Which means Kori will have no 
choice but to obey his every command!

Jack escapes from Derek's grip and runs forward. He takes 
his knife and...kills Kori.

Cutscene time! Kori says a few things before she dies. 
For some reason, she fades away instead of dropping dead. 
Ethan and Derek both yell, "Kori!"

Kori drops a necklace, which doesn't make sense if all of 
her faded into nothingness, but just roll with it. Derek 
picks it up and dramatically says that he told Kori he 
planned to open a cafe. She said to name it Chronos, and 
he gave her the necklace in thanks.

That's why Chronos has the same logo as Kori's necklace.

Derek is crying now. Jack runs off.

Timothy and Pamela insist on getting Ethan to a hospital, 
but Ethan wants to stop Jack first. Ethan insists, so 
they follow him to site of the bus accident. Jack whips 
out the Hollow Pen. He apparently plans to go back in 
time through a Time Hole like Irving did before him. Jack 
promises that the next Irving will stop Ethan.

Ethan head-butts Jack, who drops the Hollow Pen. Jack 
falls over the railing, and Ethan, for some reasons, 
grabs his hand to stop him from dying.

Timothy grabs Jack's other hand, but Jack's glove slips 
off. He falls down out of sight.

Well, that looks like the end of Jack/Irving. Great! End 

004g-Chapter Six: The Final Day

Ethan wakes up in the hospital, where Pamela feeds him 
some strong tomato soup. Well, that's certainly a 

Some days later, all the Kairos family members are at the 
Kairos house. Ethan promises to help get Timothy and 
Pamela back to their own time, and to save Kori. For some 
reason, he decides to save Kori first.

Talk to Timothy, and he says that Sox has been through a 
hole. Huh. That explains how he can find Chrons 
everywhere...or not.

Start confirming your numerous flashbacks. When you see 
the one of the window, Ethan figures it must be of Kori 
when she was pushed off a roof. Ask Timothy about it to 
get all the details. Apparently, if Kori isn't 
saved...Derek commits suicide three days later.

"So Uncle Derek had a thing for Kori, too?" Ethan 
wonders. Geez, almost everyone has a thing for Kori. 
Derek, Irving/Jack, Ethan...

Ethan decides he wants to help Kori, too, because that's 
what her last words were about. Confirm the flashback of 
her death, then head to school. When you move past the 
lockers, you get the choice of going to room 3-B. Do so.

Open a Time Hole and examine Kori to save her. Ethan 
pulls her through the hole.

Kori is freaked out because her last memory is of falling 
to her death, and she has no idea who Ethan is. Ethan 
convinces her to come to his house, where everything is 

Kori doesn't know who tried to kill her. All she knows is 
that she scraped the killer's hand very badly. Ethan 
remembers that Jack/Irving had a cut on his hand. That's 
it! Irving tried to kill Kori! He's killed pretty much 
everybody else in the town after all...

Kori says that she and Irving were assigned to clean up a 
classroom together. He turned into a TOTAL STALKER, 
demanding that Kori date him because she looks like his 
mother. And he killed her for not dating him.

Derek picks up on the "looks like his mother" bit. Didn't 
Mary Onegin die in the bus accident? The one that seems 
impossible to undo? Kori says no, she saw Mrs. Onegin.

You then get asked questions. Mary must have died after 
the bus accident. Kori must have seen Mary because she 
was still alive (BTW, I like Ethan's response to the 
"Kori saw a ghost" answer--"That would open up a whole 
new can of worms. Let's not go there."). The past that 
needs to be corrected is luring Mary to the accident in 
the past.

Good thing we know how Mary got in the accident--she 
received a letter from Timothy telling her to go there. 
Derek gives Ethan the letter, then leaves to go talk with 
Kori in his study.

Hmmm...so now all we have to do is figure out who sent 
the letter, why, and how to stop that from happening. We 
know that the letter was sent after Kori was almost 

Well, the only flashback we have is of the school 
lockers. Head to school and Ethan figures that it's Uncle 
Derek's locker that serves as his link to Mary Onegin. 
I'm not sure why he thinks that, but let's just roll with 

Go back home and ask Timothy for details on Derek's 
suicide. Then ask Derek for his student number (which 
Kori supplies) so you know whose locker is Derek's. It's 
locker number 15.

There's not much to do besides visit Ashley and Emily at 
Chronos (and see Olivia and Eva inside), so head to the 
school lockers. Ethan writes out a memo to Mary Onegin.

Confirm the flashback and open a Time Hole near the far-
left side of the lockers. Uncle Derek's locker is around 
the middle. Examine the lockers and use the memo on them 
to give Derek the memo.

You get a flashback of Uncle Derek receiving the 
memo...and ignoring it. WAY TO LET US DOWN, UNCLE DEREK. 
Head to Ethan's house and ask Uncle Derek what the heck 

Derek doesn't remember getting the memo. Shoot.

Head to Chronos, and hear the story of Vin ignoring a 
love letter because he doesn't recognize the girl's name. 
Jeez, what is up with the guys in this game and ignoring 
girls who are totally into them? Ethan ignores Emily and 
Ashley (and Kori, it could be argued), and Vin just 
THROWS a love letter away? Do you know how badly the girl 
will take that, Vin? DO YOU??

Either way, Ethan realizes that girls can be used to 
attract the attention of boys. Use this information to 
head back home and get Kori to write the memo to Mary 
Onegin. Derek may have ignored the memo written by Ethan, 
but he won't ignore a memo written by Kori, right?

Go back to school. Open a Time Hole and stick the memo in 
Derek's locker. Close the Time Hole for FLASHBACK TIME to 
see the Mary Onegin gets the letter.

But since now we have a flashback of Mary Onegin getting 
the letter, we should probably check that out. Head back 
home and ask Uncle Derek about the memo. Letter? Whatever 
it is.

Uncle Derek remembers getting the memo three days after 
Kori disappeared. He then gave it to Ivring's mom without 
reading it. Hmmm...let's think about that for a 
second...after your girlfriend VANISHES FOR NO APPARENT 
REASON, you get a letter from her, and YOU DON'T READ IT. 
Yeah, I think I can see why Uncle Derek didn't make much 
money as an investigative reporter.

Verify the flashback, and Ethan, for probably the first 
time in the game, actually uses his brain to come up with 
the clever conclusion of WHEN Mary got the letter (based 
on the fact that it's daytime in the flashback, and the 
flashback has a clock).

Open a Time Hole and talk to Mary. Mary remembers Ethan 
from the time he saved her from the bus accident. I don't 
know how, because he DIDN'T save her from the bus 
accident, but I'm probably overanalyzing things.

Mary knows that Timothy Kairos has a Hollow Pen, and 
rightly concludes that Ethan is Timothy's future son.

Ethan then notes that Mary DOES kinda look like Kori. 
Factor in the fact that, when he first saw Mary, his 
reaction was, "Wow, she's beautiful!" and it's safe to 
conclude that Ethan thinks Kori is good-looking herself. 
That doesn't have anything to do with the plot of the 
game at all, but I figured I'd mention it anyway.

Mary asks if Ethan was responsible for the memo. Ethan 
admits to sending the memo. Mary confirms that Irving was 
the one who tried to kill Kori...but that's not all. If 
he doesn't push her off the roof, he takes a leaf out of 
Ben's book and stabs her. If he doesn't stab her, he 
bashes her on the head with a rock.

Okay, so Irving's a crazed murderer. We already figured 
that out, Mary.

Mary tells Ethan to put things right and save Kori. Then, 
in a totally insane decision, Mary decides to kill her 
past self by telling her to get on the bus and see 
Timothy Kairos. Her reason is that she feels responsible 
for Kori's death. Which makes NO SENSE whatsoever in my 
book ("Oh no! My son killed Kori! I'd better kill the 
version of myself who lived sixteen years ago!"). Why she 
doesn't do something like TELL HER PAST SELF TO MOVE TO 

Mary takes out her Hollow Pen and shuts the Time Hole. 
And now it's FLASHBACK TIME, with flashbacks of Mary 
dying in the bus accident. Well, at least we know why we 
couldn't save Mary from the bus accident...whenever the 
past changed to save her, it resulted in her growing 
up...and killing her younger self again.

Confirm your only flashback (of Kori's death). Head home. 
Talk to everyone and learn that Uncle Derek is holed up 
in his study, because Kori's dead.
Uncle Derek comes out, and it's planning time. Mary 
killed herself because Irving became obsessed with Kori. 
So we must prevent Mary's death by keeping Irving away 
from Kori. Because if Mary doesn't kill herself, Irving 
will leave the Kairos family alone! Which means Mom and 
Dad won't die!

So that's our game plan: find a way to get Irving to stop 
obsessing over Kori. That should undo pretty much 
EVERYTHING. Great plan.

Uncle Derek volunteers. He tells you to send him through 
the hole, and he'll keep Kori safe. Of course, that will 
doom this Derek to existing outside of time until his 
eventually disappearance, but at least the high-school 
version of Uncle Derek will grow up happy.

Since the chapter is almost over, take the time now to 
explore the town, looking for Sox. Find Sox at the 
various spots in town over and over again until your 
Hollow Pen is all filled up. If you don't, your Hollow 
Pen becomes shorter in the next chapter. Since the next 
chapter is the last one, don't bother if you've got six 
or so spaces in your Hollow Pen, 'cause you won't run 

Head to school, specifically, to classroom 3-B. Open a 
Time Hole under Kori and tap on her. Use the ITEM Derek 
on Kori and...

Ethan and Timothy put the frozen Derek through the Time 
Hole, and Pamela looks at how nice it looks.

Then, oh HELLS NO! Jack/Irving shows up and pulls his 
crazed killer routine, stabbing Timothy in the chest. 
While Pamela and Timothy momentarily hold Jack/Irving 

CUTSCENE TIME. Jack/Irving disappears as everything gets 
undone. We then see the other side of the Hole where 
Irving pushes Kori off the roof. Uncle Derek appears 
through a Time Hole and holds her. This gives Kori time 
to see that Irving pushed her off. On the ground, a crowd 
gathers and Uncle Derek tells the high school version of 
himself to take care of Kori forever, and then he passes 

FLASHBACK TIME! Lots of flashbacks!

Ethan's back at home, with his parents at their proper 
age. Aw...happy ending! End of chapter!

004h-Epilogue: A New Day Dawns

Two days later, Ethan gets a letter from Uncle 
Derek...the one who got sent through the hole. He 
confirms that he did a good job of watching over Kori--
Irving and his mother left town forever. Kori ended up 
marrying Derek and having a daughter with him.

Derek thanks Ethan for the opportunity, and says he'll 
never forget that Ethan liked Kori, too. Odd words, I 
guess, but since that Uncle Derek has disappeared forever 
by now, it looks like we won't hear from him ever again.

Ethan has a few things left to take care of, like 
verifying all his flashbacks to see how everything's 
okay. You can visit all the places in town and do things 
like see Jacob at the park, thank Sara for her help at 
the library, and see Aaron mutter to himself outside of 

But the two places you NEED to go to are Vin's house and 
Chronos. At Vin's House, Ashley and Emily invite Ethan on 
a summer trip with the two of them, another girl, and 
Vin. Aw, why does Vin have to show up and spoil Ethan's 

Either way, Ethan agrees to go. Cool, fun summer plans!

At Chronos, go inside and chat with the guys. Uncle 
Derek, the one that married Kori and now runs Chronos, 
invites Ethan and his parents over for coffee.

Ben talks about how the owner's wife is a looker. 
Apparently, he doesn't know he's talking about Ethan's 
AUNT. Ethan gives a big wink/grin to the camera when he 
learns that Derek married Kori and they lived happily 
ever after.

To end the game, head back to school and go to the 
dumpster. Open a Time Hole and slip the clock and letter 
back where you found it.

Ethan then heads home so he can open a Time Hole and send 
the Hollow Pen to his past self via Sox. Open a Time Hole 
near Derek's head (does he have a poster of a COOKIE on 
his wall?) and ITEM the Hollow Pen on Ethan.

Well, that's the end of the game. Listen to the theme 
song and watch the pictures. Then, when that's over, you 
can see the ending animation where Ethan talks to Emily, 
Ashley, and the third girl that Ashley mentioned. The 
girl LOOKS like Kori, but we never get told if it's her 
or Ethan's new female cousin. Kind of lame, but that's 
how it goes.

005-Random Extra Stuff

So you've beaten the game, huh? Well, here are some extra 
things you can do that you may have missed!

Alternate Ending:

Restart the game from the prologue. This time, leave the 
house after Sox and talk to the person outside. It's 

From there, you can follow the new, much shorter game 
path to reach a new, shorter ending.

Second Alternate Ending:

At the epilogue, just before you're going to open the 
last Hole of the game, decide not to open it. Instead, 
search town for Sox, who has apparently been everywhere. 
This slightly changes the ending, so a character named 
??? (most people figure it's Sox) says two lines to 

Emily's Glasses:

You can steal Emily's glasses in Chapter Three, when you 
make a Time Hole to take the pliers on the ground. In 
Chapter Four, after you shift to the timeline where Uncle 
Derek is murdered, Emily falls and hurts herself on the 
way to get contacts. The game forces you to give Emily 
her glasses back through a Time Hole in front of Chronos 
after this.

Vin's Basketball Team:

You can help Vin make the basketball team. In Chapter 
Four, when Ethan is hunting for ideas on how to make a 
cafe popular, stop by Vin's house. Ashley tells you all 
about Vin's accident.

Ben's Murder Choice:

Ben kills Aaron with pliers in Chapter Three, right? 
Well, when you replay Chapter Two, you can change that. 
In Chapter Two, you can open a Time Hole in front of 
Chronos and give Ashley the envelope of money. When you 
open the Time Hole at this time, look for the pliers and 
remove them.

This way, when Ben and Aaron fight, things are changed so 
that Ben slips and hits his head on a rock. Ethan is 
forced to move the rock. Then, Ben kills Aaron with a 
rock. Ethan is forced to avoid the fight completely by 
rescuing Shiloh at the secret hideout.
