Please do come in, take a seat and make yourselves comfortable whilst I prepare your drinks. The menu for today consists of a simple achievement and endings guide that I hope will be to your liking!


⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀✞ \(‾▿‾\) 𝚆𝚊𝚒𝚝! 𝚆𝚑𝚎𝚛𝚎 𝚊𝚛𝚎 𝚢𝚘𝚞 𝚐𝚘𝚒𝚗𝚐? (/‾▿‾)/ ✞


Just a quick bit of information. This game seems to have quite a few possible answer combinations you can use for each ending. I've gotten one of Issac's ends using a couple different methods but have decided to pick the one that let me use the unlockable answers to try and make this as easy as possible to follow.

I suggest playing through the game by yourself for the first couple of runs, its far more fun, well in my opinion at least.
This guide is just here for those of you who don't like having to go back and try again and again (me) for achievements, or for those that simply need a push in the right direction.

EDIT

Luka now has is own route (squeeee) but I really didn't feel up to editing the whole of this guide to incorporate him into it from the start. So, he has his own little section with answers at the end.
It should make sense to those who have already played the game before his update, and also for those just starting out now :)
Basics


This is totally not an excuse to post more shots of the pretty coloured backgrounds, honestly.

So this game is like any other VN out there (minus the kinetics) that let's you pick and choose how you want the story to play out, usually by selecting from one, two or three different options.
This one however has a little twist in that the answers you pick will have certain stats fixed to them that affect how the MC acts and responds throughout the story.

When you get to the first lot of options a message will pop up explaining the mechanic.

There's a couple of achievements attached to how many times you respond with a certain stat, but overall I found that there's a route for each guy that can be completed with a charming/gentle attitude and another with a more blunt/aggressive style.

I've made two save files, one with a charming/gentle playstyle, and the other with the blunt/aggressive style that I just reload from in order to get the desired endings. I am undecided on whether I'm going to write the stat changes after every answer or not, I guess it depends on how messy it looks!

If I do decide to put the stats after every choice then I'll add a quick key below;

  • A= Aggressive
  • B= Blunt
  • C= Charming
  • G= Gentle

IMPORTANT

Also, I'd like to add that in order to get the last achievement 'Antediluvian', you will have need to have viewed all of the text. As such, I recommend saving the game (not in slot 1 or 2 as these are the ones I reference throughout the guide) and then choosing all available text options and reloading, before finally choosing the answer in the guide to proceed with the route.

Or.

You can just play through using this guide as it is, and then go back through afterwards picking all the answers you haven't used before. I am not going to detail them all, as it's easy enough to follow along with this guide as a reference for those options you have picked, plus I'm pretty sure the answers you haven't selected are shown in a darker red colour?

I may be wrong about that, but it seemed like it when I was playing through. Eh, feel free to let me know if that's bull.


That being said, I had the achievement ping and when it comes to the freelance work Ash does, I only ever chose Writing for the charm/gentle routes and Music for the aggressive/ blunt routes. So I haven't seen any of the text to do with Art.... and it still gave me the achievement. Which is odd but I'm not complaining.
Dominic


Let me start off Dominic's route with our first achievement;

Plagiarism is achieved by naming the MC after one of the romance options, Dominic, Isaac or Rex. I used Rex because it was the only one I could remember from the intro! The game will grant you the achievement and then kindly ask you to rethink and name him again. You can either stick with the default name of Ash, or choose your own.

Ending #1: Frenzy

  • Ask what he wants [+B]
  • Offer a casual shrug [+B]
  • You have a problem with him? [+A]
  • Sure, I'll try [+B]
  • You're making a deal next to my diner [+A]
  • I'll come if they're using you as a target practice [+A]
  • Writing/ Music/ Art [the choice doesn't matter, pick whichever you prefer]
  • Try to push him off [+A]
  • Watch the fight [+A]

Note: Make SAVE 1 here- the answers above will form the base for our Agressive/ Blunt endings, we can just load up save 1 when needed, instead of going through it all again! Ending 1 continues below.

  • Chase after Dominic
  • I was looking for you [+B]
  • It can't be helped [+B]
  • Refuse [+B]
  • It'd be worth the cost
  • No, it isn't [this is one of the unlockable answers]
  • I'll do anything to help Dom

During the later stages of this route ^ the following achievements should unlock;

I Don't Mince Words- for giving all Aggressive/ Blunt answers.

I'll Miss the Sun- for choosing the unlockable, 'No, it isn't' option.


Ending #2: Alone, Together

Start a new game

  • Greet him politely [+C]
  • Calm him down [+C]
  • Ask if he'd like to order anything [+G]
  • And what're you offering in return? [+C]
  • I like to know what happens around here [+G]
  • I'll come if it's safe [+G]
  • Writing/ Music/ Art [I recommend choosing a different job to the one you picked in SAVE 1]
  • Reason with him [+G]
  • Try to stop them [+G]

Note: Make SAVE 2 here- the answers above will form the base for our Charming/ Gentle endings, we can just load up save 2 when needed, instead of going through it all again! Ending 2 continues below.

  • Chase after Dominic
  • I was just curious [+C]
  • It must be hard [+C]
  • Let him drink from me
  • Tell him what he wants to hear [unlockable]
  • I'll take the risk
  • I can't trust him

The following achievements will unlock in this route;

Can't We All Just Get Along?- for going the non-violent route.

Silver Tongue- for choosing the Charming answers.

That should be it for our silver haired muscle man endings wise.

Like I mentioned previously, it would be worth loading up save 1 & 2 now and after choosing to chase after Dominic, to go through and explore all of the options you haven't seen. Would be a lot easier to track doing it this way.

You can also check how much of the text you've seen so far by going into the Extras menu and clicking on the Endings tab, it should tell you at the top.
Isaac


Right for Isaac, I played through and got some achievements to do with choices and then couldn't get ending number 1 for him, so I went back through and did his routes differently and those are the ones I'm going to write down for getting his 2 endings. (Apologies if this doesn't make much sense, but it's hard to explain!)
The first lot of answers below will only be for unlocking the corresponding achievements;

Assistant of the Year- for reminding Isaac that you're his assistant.

Load SAVE 2

  • Catch up with Isaac
  • Give in [+G]
  • I don't want you to get hurt [unlockable]
  • I'm your assistant, remember?

Tough Love- Don't take any ♥♥♥♥ from these hot vamps!

Load SAVE 1

  • Catch up with Isaac
  • Try to resist [+A]
  • Don't run away then[+B]
  • Just tell me! [+A]


Ending #1: Possession

Load SAVE 2

  • Catch up with Isaac
  • Give in
  • I don't want you to get hurt
  • You don't have to talk about it
  • I trust Isaac


Ending #2: Nightfall

Load SAVE 1

  • Catch up with Isaac
  • Try to resist
  • It must be hard
  • Just tell me!
  • I know this trick [unlockable]

That should be it for the flirty not-so-much-a-vamp Isaac. Again I cannot stress enough how important it is to go back through and pick different answers!!! Please, just do it ;)
Rex


Right then, down to our last vampire. Ahh Rex, his route gave me issues with trying to unlock one of his options, but I finally did it!

Ending #1: Eternal Union

Load SAVE 2

  • Run away from Rex
  • I'll let you drink from me [+G]
  • If it'll keep me safe... [+G]
  • Get closer [+G]
  • The way it felt last night... [+C]
  • We promised

Ending #2: Another Dusk

Load SAVE 1

  • Run away from Rex
  • Do whatever you want [+B]
  • I'm nobody's prey! [+A]
  • Stay away
  • Watch out for next time [unlockable]
  • I won't run away [unlockable]


I'll Bite You Back- earned for picking the unlockable option 'Watch out for next time'.


Last Unlockable Answer

Load SAVE 1

  • Run away from Rex
  • Do whatever you want
  • I'm nobody's prey!
  • Stay away
  • Can't you treat me as a friend, not a meal? [+A]
  • You're just another beast [unlockable]
Remaining Achievements


Start a new game

  • Greet him politely
  • Calm him down
  • And what're you offering in return?
  • I like to know what happens
  • I'll come if it's safe
  • [Pick whichever work option you haven't yet used]
  • Reason with him
  • Try to stop them

From here just follow the steps (after the save) for Ending #1 for Isaac or Rex, or Ending #2 for Dominic and you should see all the work related text for the last occupation.

The last achievement, as I've mentioned many times before, is for viewing all of the text.
If you've been good and gone back through and exhausted all options then congratulations- Antediluvian should pop up for you!!



YAY!

Luka [New Route Added]


Luka now has his very own route!! Yay, we can date the little blond cutie!

I wanted to use my saves from the previous routes but Luka's option wasn't available, so I had to start from the beginning for his two endings T_T, but it's really not that bad a deal because I got to read the story again- if you're like me, it's been a little while since playing the game so it was nice to have a little refresher.

If however you're playing through the game for the first time, then I'd imagine when you get to the option to pick your man, Luka will be there and you can save as stated in Dominic's route. If that's the case then you can just reload from that point (either save 1 or 2, depending on which personality you need for the ending.)

Ending #1: Lover's Hate

So for this route I went for the aggressive/ blunt options for the build up. If you've started playing after the Luka update then you can just load Save 1 from Dom's route and then pick -Follow Luka.

For those that had to start again, like me then here are the choices I picked for this ending.

  • Ask what he wants [+B]
  • Offer a casual shrug [+B]
  • You have a problem with him? [+A]
  • Sure, I'll try [+B]
  • You're making a deal next to my diner [+A]
  • I'll come if they're using you as a target practice [+A]
  • Writing/ Music/ Art [the choice doesn't matter, pick whichever you prefer]
  • Try to push him off [+A]
  • Watch the fight [+A]

This is where it branches off for each guy.

  • Follow Luka
  • Why do you hate vampires?
  • I deserve to know, don't I?
  • I'd never lie to Luka
  • When I get my hands on that guy... [unlocked]
  • I'll meet with him

And that's one ending wrapped up. Picking the unlockable option will give you the achievement;

But I'm no butcher boss- this is the newly added achievement.




Ending #2: Until the Last Days

For this ending I went for the charming/ gentle personality. Again, if you've started playing after the update then you can just load up Save 2 and pick -Follow Luka and go on with the rest of my answers from there.

Here's my choices for those who have to start again;

  • Greet him politely [+C]
  • Calm him down [+C]
  • Ask if he'd like to order anything [+G]
  • And what're you offering in return? [+C]
  • I like to know what happens around here [+G]
  • I'll come if it's safe [+G]
  • Writing/ Music/ Art [I recommend choosing a different job to the one you picked in SAVE 1]
  • Reason with him [+G]
  • Try to stop them [+G]

Branches off here for each guy.

  • Follow Luka
  • How about a refill?
  • I'm just curious [I initially picked the unlockable answer but it didn't give any personality changes, so I reloaded and went for this one instead]
  • Would it really keep him safe...?
  • Only if you keep your end of the deal
  • It's too dangerous
  • Does revenge really mean anything? [unlockable]

And that's it for Luka!

Hope this helps those of you needing the last new achievement! <3
Thank you

Thanks for the guide, was very helpful.
As a side note, I read 100% of the text but Antediluvian didn't pop up until after I started a new game. Thought I'd just state that here incase anyone needs the info :)
Captain Alistair Sep 20, 2019 @ 2:23pm 
I'm sad that i can't get the seeing all tex achievement, because i have seen it all:c Thanks for the guide, i believe wouldn't get to the way you play here without it
gameboy1990 Sep 16, 2019 @ 8:13am 
so being nice to someone leads to a bad ending and being an asshole to someone leads to a good ending? seriously? :steamfacepalm:
Tch.  [author] Jul 16, 2019 @ 8:53am 
He does indeed :smirkingnerith:
Serena7900 Jul 16, 2019 @ 6:18am 
I was going back for my last cg an I found that Bishop had an ending in isaac's route.
Tch.  [author] Jun 18, 2019 @ 4:11pm 
I hope you manage to get it- - i'm not really sure what else to suggest :0_0: just make sure you picked the blunt/aggressive options beforehand and it should work.... please let me know if you do get it to unlock! Haha no problem at all. It's actually nice to go back to these games once in a while :catwink:
Buttfart Princesspants VIII Jun 18, 2019 @ 4:06pm 
It was greyed out! I wonder what's happened. I clearly must've not followed it properly. Sorry to make you run around and do that again for my stupidness.
Thank you for the guide as the rest was amazing and thank you for checking for me. You're brilliant.
Tch.  [author] Jun 18, 2019 @ 2:40pm 
Ok so I just played through the game again, following my answers and the 'No, it isn't' option is clickable for me :br_confused: was it greyed out for you? Or did it have a dark red colour to it? Mine look like this https://imgur.com/3iAOgvA and I was able to click it.
Tch.  [author] Jun 17, 2019 @ 2:08pm 
It could've changed with one of the updates, I'll look into it and get back to you
Buttfart Princesspants VIII Jun 17, 2019 @ 9:21am 
This is strange - I'm following the route exactly as you've stated but I can't click "No, it isn't" on Dominic's route. Has the game changed?
