    To get this one you need to choose all the bad options in the playthrough (ones that will give you the separating icon):

    I had to do a full replay of ch3 to get this after my first playthrough was to get the strong bond

    WARNING: There is a small chance that if you went with all "good" choices in previous chapters, you might have trouble meeting the requirements for this achievement (same goes for making bad choices and getting the Tyler ending). This, plus Tyler ending and both bond achievements, are extremely vague and this guide is going based on how I unlocked the achievement after 2.5 playthroughs of Chapter 3.

    -Fail the panic attack app on your phone
    -Don’t tell Eddy you were the one that killed your mom (this seems to be the other important factor)
    -Tell Michael you are too different
    -You can break open the chest or entered the code to the chest (Leo) - just don’t solve all the main (3) puzzles

    And most important, Choose to keep your memory that Mary-Anne was going to kill you.

    (It’s possible there are some extra steps in there, but I don’t want to take any away and have you not get the achievement and do another playthrough. Choosing the left memory and lying to Eddy seem to be most important though) These should get you the ending where Alyson is at the house at the end. Go into Mary-Anne’s old room (room on first floor next to the phone) and sit at the desk, then choose to finish the story.

    Achievement pops after some dialogue.

    Thank you Erinx212 for the help

    DeusZEROSo I did some experimenting. I replayed the entire game and only selected the choices that broke the twin's bond. Once I got to the conversation with Eddy in the third chapter I told him the truth, but otherwise followed this guide. I got the achievement for breaking the twin's bond, but got Tyler's epilogue.
    I replayed from the "Paternity Test" section of Chapter 3. This time I did not tell Eddy the truth, but otherwise kept the rest of my choices the same. This triggered the epilogue with Alison.
    Hopefully this info can help anyone trying to get this achievement or to at least make it quicker for them to pick it up.

    EtifuloperI played through my first time and got this ending while doing the complete opposite, I beat the breathing game, told Eddy, bonded with Tyler, and beat the puzzles. The only thing I did was choose to stick with the story that their mum tried to kill them. For anyone willing to experiment this may be a final choice only trigger, as I reloaded from the choice outside of isolation mode and chose to believe Tom and got the other ending.

    StealFrmWorkDuring my playthrough, I chose all the options to strengthen the twins’ bonds, passed the anxiety test, didn’t tell Eddie the truth, and originally accepted Tom’s version of events to get the ending with Tyler.

    I restarted from “Veni, Vidi, Vecchi” (not in isolation mode) and sped through to making the decision again, this time choosing to keep the twins’ memory. This got my the Alyson ending.

    Currently it is still unclear what exactly is needed but so far it turns out that you have to choose mostly negative, lie to Eddy in Chapter 3 and choose at the end Alyson's memory. I recommend to do this achievement together with the
    Tell Me WhyLife Tears Us ApartThe Life Tears Us Apart achievement in Tell Me Why worth 109 pointsComplete the story with the twin's bond weakened

    on your second playthrough. You need 2 playthroughs to get all achievements.

    There is no indicator in the game how many negative choices you needed, so for the safe side I recommend to replay! the game from chapter 1 (not isolated mode!) and be negative as possible. You can skip a lot of cutscenes and save a lot of time.

    Here is a list of all my negative choices during my playthrough. The remaining choices should not be any effect to any achievement in the game (as example Tessa at Graveyard)

    Chapter 1
    - I don't care cn_A
    Ronan House - Puzzle Door
    - Examine the door
    - Open (door handle)

    - April 2004 cn_A
    - You were mad she bailed on you cn_X
    Police station
    - Eddy did his best for me cn_Y

    Chapter 2
    Ronan House - Outside
    - Choose Alyson's memory
    Car Stop (Telephone conversation with the realtor)
    - Let's do it cn_Y
    Police station (After Archive Room)
    - Are you kidding me?! cn_Y
    - She was struggling! cn_X
    - So you called child services cn_X
    - That's bullshit, Alyson! cn_Y
    - No, its not that easy cn_X
    Store (After the plushie Battle)
    - You're swell too cn_Y
    Graveyard - Totem
    - Choose Tyler's memory
    Ronan House - Docks
    - Even after what I did for you? cn_X

    Chapter 3
    Eddy's House - Talk with Michael

    PandivisThank you very much! It helped me a lot. I only replay the Third Chapter doing exactly what you said to do and got this achievement and the Life Tears Us Apart achievement. Thank God I don't had to play the entire game again. In chapters 1 and 2 I think I got the most right answer but I don't know how much exactly I got.

    I have experimented a few times to get this achievement on different accounts. This achievement can be unlocked with either of the twin-related bond achievements. There are three dialogue options that affect this achievement.

    1. You must not tell Michael about the memories.
    2. Don't reveal to Chief Brown that Alyson killed Mary-Anne.
    3. Stick with the Twins memory about how Mary-Anne wanted to kill Tyler.

    If you do the first two but pick Tom's memory of Mary-Anne's death, you will get the epilogue that involves Tyler.

    Hope this helps.
