The Painter – 100% Completion

Like The Hostage, this chapter of Detroit: Become Human requires multiple playthroughs to unlock 100% on the flowchart. The good news is, nothing you really do in this chapter will hurt anything that happens later in the game, it’s merely a buildup chapter for Markus’ future development. There are a couple of things that are easy to miss along the way, though. To 100% this chapter, just play through it normally and go through all of the different options. There aren’t any real variations until after you serve Carl breakfast.

Carl Notices Markus’ Clothes

This option can only be triggered if the protesters from Shades of Color tried to rough up Markus.

Read North Pole Russia/Life on Titan

Look for this magazine in the dining room area. Read it and swipe through both of these articles to complete these two markers.

Find Something to Do

When looking for something to do, you’ll have a few different options. You must complete one of the sub-options in the categories listed below.

Read Book

Visit the bookshelf in the back of the room—near the piano—and read a book on the shelf there.

Play Chess

Play Piano

Interact with the piano in the back of the room and play a song for Carl.

Paint from the Heart

Paint all of three of the items (one thing from each category listed here).
