The House of Ashes is the latest entry into the horror anthology series, Dark Pictures, made by Supermassive. This game follows a cast of five characters - American and Iraqi soldiers - investigating a suspected weapons silo in Iraq. As you might expect, they get a lot more than they signed up for. More and more details about their mysterious circumstances are revealed as you play, which keeps you on the edge of your seat for the duration.
Just like the previous Dark Picture games, House of Ashes focuses on key decision points and quick-time events to determine how the story plays out. This means there are lots of potential results for the game's ending and it's easy to get lost in the weeds.
You're in luck, though! We've brought all of TheGamer's House of Ashes guides and articles together here for your convenience. You'll find everything you need to know, including our review of the game, walkthroughs of each scene for those moments when a decision has really stumped you, and more.

Before You Play...
*Note: a common and well-known glitch means that the player may not see every scene when viewing the scene selection. Unfortunately, you'll simply have to head to the scene before the one you want to repeat.
