I saw that there are currently no topics about it, so I made one! I’ve been playing this game for about 5 days now, and I have been stuck on my last two achievements - Goodbye Friend and The Weight of Grief. I was just wondering how other people have done it since I’m on my 10th replay trying to clear the achievements, but so far, no luck.
We could also make a discussion about the other achievements and the specifics of it, since there has been no discussion about it! I wanna start off by discussing some of my favorite achievements:
Party Time: Successfully stand together with the people of Arbor Isle
The Town Security should be at least 70% in order to do this. The Team Morale should also be pretty high since this route is the epitome of defeating evil thru the love of power and friendship. When Anuja gets caught, tell her she’s not a bad person. Then shove it in the fog’s face that your friends are willing to stand by your side. The fog lets go of Anuja, but catches you instead. The townspeople rush over, but instead of lying to them, you have to be honest and say that it’s The Fog Beast you’re dealing with. The fog then lets you go so you can prove your point. Once you stood your ground, other people will join in and stand their ground against the fog by also enjoying the party despite the fog watching. Thru the townspeople’s belief, the fog is officially eradicated.
And They All Lived: Have everyone survive the curse of the fog and resume their lives.
I got this after successfully pulling off Party Time and resurrecting Rex, but idk if resurrecting Rex should be done in order to do this tho.
A Resurrection: Bring someone back from the dead.
Obviously, revive Rex. I think that in order to do this, your relationship with Rex should be at least 60%. This would be easier if you romance Rex, and when Rex calls for help when you and the gang are in the car, forget about Ennis. Help Rex instead, or else he’ll get caught by the fog again. That crossroad is very important, I think, because (on one run) even when I romanced Rex, but went to the shack… well, he got revived, alright. But he’s hollow and lifeless, which leads me to the next achievement.
Oops: Make a horrifying mistake.
Rex gets to be revived; however, he’s hollow and lifeless. To ensure this, just ignore his pleas for help and follow Ennis to the shack.
Courting the Kellers: Start something new with Rex and Ennis Keller.In order to get Ashley talking, you have 4 options (blackmail, fake evidence, etc.), and I think that in all of those options, you have a chance to tell your friends that you have a crush on Rex. Pick that. At every chance you get where you can romance Rex, do it. When the boat sequence happens, pick either one of the last two options, then kiss Rex. Fast-forward, when Diego asks you who you like, pick Ennis as your other one. In order to romance Ennis, you need to follow her to the shack, and after the ordeal, agree to look around for any other danger. There, you will see Ennis, and you can angle your head to kiss her. Don’t do this while trying to resurrect Rex. It wouldn’t end well. Or maybe it would. I only tried it once so maybe give it a go.
A Loyal Companion: Become the companion of a terrible being.
Be a wholesome person throughout the game and negotiate with The Fog Beast. Offer it your companionship, and when it smells that you are sincere about this, it will agree to your offer. 5 years have passed, and The Fog Beast will let you go because you have been so nice. Not a terrible end - just a bittersweet one.
TL;DR: Most of the achievements in the game couldn’t be achieved if you’re not a good person. Not to mention, the intimidation stat is hard to maintain if you want to be edgy. You can be manipulative tho, since it’s easier to maintain.
