The player must wake up, find his way down to the basement, and open the Tattletail box. After playing with it for a while, the player re-wraps Tattletail in his box and goes back to bed.
The player will hear a clunking noise and needs to investigate it. The player will then need to go down in the basement and will find Tattletail in the washing machine. After taking Tattletail out of the washing machine, the player then has to charge Tattletail in the charging station. After charging Tattletail, the player then has to find a vase so that Tattletail and the player can "play" with it. The vase breaks, and the lights go out. The game tells the player to grab the flashlight, causing the task name to change to "Oh no...". Eventually the lights come back on and the player must wrap up Tattletail. The player then will have to go to bed.
The player wakes up to a grinding noise. After picking up the flashlight, the player will find Mama in the basement. The player then has to load a cassette into Mama. After listening to the tape, you must bring Tattletail to Mama. Upon reaching the basement, the player will see that Mama has disappeared. You go to wrap up Tattletail, and clean up his mess. While heading upstairs, the lights will go out and the game will give a hint about Mama. Go to bed.
Note: This is the first night Mama can kill you.
The player wakes up and needs to investigate the chattering sound coming from outside. Once you're outside you will find your purple Tattletail and a yellow Tattletail. Grab your purple Tattletail and it will tell you to interact with his friend to start the game of hide and seek. While the yellow Tattletail is hiding, Mama will chase you. When the lights turn back on, find the yellow Tattletail. It will repeat twice, each time adding 30 seconds for Mama to find you. After the third time, the game will tell the player to grab the VHS tape and play on the player's television in his room. The VHS tape shows a Tattletail commercial with interactive cameras. Upon closer viewing of the commercial, Mama will be teleporting a body around, and a man can be found struggling. Once the VHS tape ends, go to bed.
December 24(Christmas eve)
The player will be awoken by Tattletail. He will tell the player to help them throw a party for Mama. After heading to the basement, the player will put Tattletail on the charging station. Tattletail instructs you to go find his friends. One is under the Christmas tree, the other is in the garage. Mama will chase you while you find the two Tattletails. After that, you need to find some supplies.
- Festive lights
The cupcakes can be found on a table in the dining room. The festive lights can be found on the Christmas tree while the candles can be found on the kitchen counter. After you bring the candles, the Tattletails will form a circle, chanting "No more Mama!". After your Tattletail joins the seance, you will light the candles, rewind the VHS and a checkpoint will be created. You will then have to survive Mama hunting you during the ritual. Mama will then steal the candles, and you have to find them in vases while Mama hunts you. After you find and relit all the candles, you will have to observe the ceremony. The VHS will glow and levitate, and you will have to destroy it to banish Mama. The lights will then turn back on and all the Tattletails will return to their boxes. Then you can go to bed.
The player wakes up, and goes to open their present. Tense music plays as you open the present, revealing an empty Tattletail box. After a short time period, Mama will jumpscare you. However, if you do the Secret Ending, you will live and Tattletail will give you his born tag, and a golden flashlight, and you need to open your mother's door to end the day.
