Like the gameplay features in Until Dawn and Man of Medan, The Dark Pictures Anthology: Little Hope also has several premonitions for you to find. These pictures or postcards show you the fates that await your characters. Here’s our premonitions guide to help you out.
The Dark Pictures Anthology: Little Hope – Premonitions guide
To avoid major spoilers, I’ll simply list down the locations of the premonitions I’ve found during my Little Hope playthrough. However, towards the end (don’t worry, I’ve put a spoiler warning), I’ll mention the scene that these postcards depict.
Premonition #1: Deadly Omen
Location: After reuniting with the group and opening the gate, check the back of the pickup truck.
Premonition #2: Familiars
Chapter: Playing Tricks
Location: After exiting the Black Cat Bar and meeting Vince, go to the nearby clearing. The postcard is on a bench.
Premonition #3: Human Sacrifice
Location: On top of the metal barrels next to a shed.
Premonition #4: Mercy
Chapter: Off Track
Location: Examine the barrels at the right-hand side of the police station’s yard. Don’t go to the left-hand side and pick up the rock just yet since that’ll lead to the next chapter.
Premonition #5: Like A Stone
Chapter: Another Way
Location: After the scene at the playground, check the nearby bench along the pathway.
Premonition #6: Ritual Blade
Chapter: Another Way
Location: You’ll need to enter the store using the stairs. Once inside, check the room to your right before dropping down.
Premonition #7: Shackled
Chapter: The Crossing
Location: There’s a bench in front of a dilapidated house.
Premonition #8: Dark Magic
Chapter: Troubled History
Location: Once Daniel and Taylor arrive at the Museum of Witchcraft, examine one of the side rooms.
Premonition #9: Voodoo Doll
Location: Just before you reach the tourist office, you’ll spot a clearing with some benches.
Premonition #10: Exorcism
Location: On top of a small desk in one of the chapel’s rooms.
Premonition #11: Demon At The Door
Location: It’s on top of a bench outside the derelict house. Do not go near the house’s doorway yet (the one with fireflies) as this will trigger the next scene and you won’t be able to grab this.
Premonition #12: Pressed Into Silence
Location: On top of a box outside the Textile Factory.
Premonition #13: Rope
Chapter: Full Circle
Location: On a desk inside the ruined house.
Note: You can learn more about this scene in our detailed article about Little Hope‘s 13th premonition.
Anyway, it’s time to talk about the scenes you’ll watch when you do examine these pictures. Beware because there are spoilers ahead.
Life and death
The premonitions in Little Hope follow Man of Medan‘s color-coding scheme. The ones on the left have lighter frames signifying a chance at survival or an open-ended fate. Meanwhile, the ones on the right have darker frames symbolizing death.
|Deadly Omen||Black Cat||A character picks up a gun.||Andrew can pick up the gun during “Off Track.” This can be used to shoot the demons that are attacking your friends.|
|Mercy||Witch Trial||Andrew attempts to rescue Angela.||Angela falls down the bridge in “The Crossing,” but Andrew can save her.|
|Ritual Blade||A woman holding a knife||A character picks up a knife.||As Daniel, you’ll be able to pick up a knife inside the museum during “Troubled History.” The knife could be kept by either Daniel or Taylor, and subsequently used to escape a demon when confronted.|
|Shackled||Police Department logo||A man is arrested by police.||You can learn more in our endings guide.|
|Exorcism||A dark pathway||Andrew and Daniel escape the sewers.||I personally haven’t encountered this scene.|
|Familiars||Witch’s cauldron||Andrew is pointing his gun at something.||During the “Low Point” chapter, if Andrew decides to bring out the gun, he’ll accidentally shoot Angela.|
|Human Sacrifice||Human skull||A man is pointing a gun at his head.||You can learn more in our endings guide.|
|Voodoo Doll||Animal skull and pentagram||Daniel is struggling against a creature that’s jabbing him with a metal spike.||In the “Surrounded” chapter, Andrew can rescue Daniel by shooting the demon with the gun. If you’re unable to rescue Daniel, he’ll get spiked through the head.|
|Like A Stone||Drowning execution||Angela falls down the crevice and gets attacked by a demon.||In “The Crossing,” this happens if Andrew doesn’t rescue Angela, or if Angela fails the QTE prompts.|
|Dark Magic||Burning at the stake||Taylor is running away and hiding from something.||I’m uncertain about this, but this might occur during “Pursued” (Taylor attempts to hide from her demon) or “Surrounded” (Taylor runs off to the left). The demon will find and kill her. She may need the knife from the museum in “Troubled History” in order to escape.|
|Pressed Into Silence||Getting crushed by stone blocks||John is getting strangled by a demon.||This scene plays out in “Heavy Burden” (John fails the QTE prompts) and “Full Circle” (John doesn’t meet the bearings criteria). You can learn more in our endings guide.|
