This achievement is obtained when you finish the game for the first time, regardless of the ending.

Given that this is an awesome little game, and with a not-so-little price, I recommend everyone to do a first playthrough to enjoy it, forgetting about guides, achievements, forced conditions playthroughs and such. Just play it, make your decisions and enjoy this fine game, with its great art style, voice acting and story.

But, if still there's someone that wants their 1000Gs in as few hours as possible, and given that there are five "ending" achievements and a "special condition playthrough" one, I want to throw here a little guide of how to get those 6 achievements in 3 playthroughs.

EDIT 20/01/16: As it seems, the "two playthough" guide isn't working for everyone, so I'm editing back to the "three playthrough" scheme, because some achievements exclude others in some instances:

- "I am the firestarter" excludes "Matchmaker" and "New beginnings".
- "Thicker than water" excludes "New beginnings".
- "Matchmaker" and "You'd just end hating each other" are complete opposites.


Playthrough 1: "Matchmaker" and "New beginnings" + Collectibles and miscellaneous.

Be nice to everyone in this playthrough, and try to influence Nona so she and Ren end together. Slight spoilers follow.
*** Spoiler - click to reveal ***

Playthrough 2: "Thicker than water", "You'd just end up hating each other" and "I am the firestarter".

Be mean to everyone in this playthrough, convince Michael to stay in town, and don't do anything to influence Nona so she and Ren end together. Slight spoilers follow.
*** Spoiler - click to reveal ***


Playthrough 3: "The silent, strong type"

You can't use cn_X, cn_Y or cn_B dialog options during this playthrough. Funnily enough, not talking at all will grant you some other achievements in case you didn't unlock them before (thanks Dugfreez for the confirmation). Spoilers ahead.

DugFreez Just some notes that I thought I would add on the "The strong, silent type" playthrough. I did the entire playthough without pressing X, Y or B. So I did NOT communicate in that way at all. I did interact with many things with the A button. In many cases that caused Alex to talk...sometimes to others. That seems to be fine for the achievement.

I was very concerned at the very end. The game shows a final still picture and you have 3 dialog choices using the X, Y, and B buttons. I tried to wait it out, but you can not. At this point you have to press X, Y or B.

Thankfully the achievement still unlocks...so that last use of X, Y or B does not count against the achievement.

Some other notes on the "The strong, silent type" achievement. When doing that playthrough it also unlocked "You'd Just End Up Hating Each Other" and "Thicker than Water". So I'm pretty sure doing a talk-free playthough will net these also....though one of the other final "unspoken" decisions may effect "Thicker than Water".

I'm also think a "The strong, silent type" playthrough may also net the "New Beginnings" achievement, but I can't say for certain, because I already had that achievement unlocked before this playthough.

amenazamenor JF Thanks for the notes. I'm finishing my "silent" playthrough, and as soon as I do, I'll update the solution.

SuperTigerWoods Having found this guide after I finished 3 playthroughs (first one was for pleasure looking at absolutely zero guides) I would have to say that this seems to be quite accurate and thorough. Enjoy this great game! Very original and clever

FloriDUH JBot After the bunker door opened, the game warned that this was a point of no return once you entered. At this point, everyone is standing outside the bunker. I left to clean up some collectibles and when I came back to enter, Ren and Nona were gone. So I couldn't hug everyone ... there wasn't even an option.

amenazamenor JF @FloriDUH, hugging your friends isn't fundamental for the achievements, but I believe it sums a little. I think you won't have any trouble even if you couldn't do that.

coip In your guides for Playthrough 1 and Playthrough 2, you say for both: "try to influence Nona so she and Ren end together". However, aren't Matchmaker (Playthrough 1) and You'd Just End Up Hating Each Other (Playthrough 2) diametrically opposed? In Playthrouhg 2, should we really be trying to influence Nona to like Ren? That seems contradictory.

amenazamenor JF @range is good, yes, it is a mistake Had to edit the guide several times and I messed up. Sorry, I'll correct it right now.

kintaris Wow. I was looking ahead to game I might complete and offer to write a walkthrough for, but... This is pretty much it already...

GilgameshLegacy Quick question: On Playthrough 2 you are going for firestarter, but you say in the guide "be nice to everyone". I thought you should be mean to everyone on this one.

zzUrbanSpaceman Just thought you'd like to know that I referenced this guide during the GamerScore Boot Camp segment on the Zed to Zed Podcast episode 13. http://zedtozed.com/013-just-pal-ing-around toast

amenazamenor JF @GilgameshLegacy, you're right. Fixed it, thanks for the correction.

@zzUrbanSpaceman, thanks! I'll give it a listen ;)

AP E JC Does anyone know if the New Game+ feature of the game changes the way you have to do the playthroughs to get all achievements?

Apostle92627 I was able to get "New Beginnings" and "I am the Firestarter" in the same playthrough. I mostly had Alex keep Jonas at a distance but still got the achievement.

ecinrun I would clarify some things with Playthrough 1. You should edit the line about the tape recorders on the bridge. You should change it to the bridge with the 3 tape recorders and make a bigger emphasis on the bridge. It is one of most important steps to get Ren and Nona to date. I messed this up because I didn't see Nona on the bridge because it was hard to see because of the games art style. I now have to do a 4th playthrough because I made that mistake. You should make it more obvious so that other people don't make the same mistake.

Demon Slayer050 Great guide as I got all achievements in 3 playthroughs. However, I would recommend doing the Silent Playthrough 2nd as you may get the same endings for each character as doing the Firestarter and therefore not need a 3rd run. I do believe, but cannot confirm, that the endings for each character is random. You can easily tell which endings your game is favoring by the responses when your character talks to her prior self in the mirror.
