Introduction
This guide is a list of every action that earns you a point in Perfect Tides, currently 95 points as of this writing. This is massive spoiler territory, and it's strongly encouraged that you play through the game on your own first.

Actions don't need to completed in this exact order, but it's confirmed that they can all be completed in this order. See the footnotes section for a couple points that can only be achieved by having positive interactions with two characters.

Thanks to the members of the Perfect Tides Discord for helping find several of the missing points, and Meredith Gran for making such a magical game worth exploring every moment of.

If you have any additions or corrections, you can message me on Twitter at @waxpancake (my DMs are open). Thanks!

Footnotes
  1. Reconciling with Simon to get the birthday poem requires a series of events that are currently unclear, triggering special dialogue that you're ready to forgive him after leaving the Fyre nightclub. Bringing peas as the dinner side dish and giving Simon the lost floppy disk may factor in, but taking/rejecting his beer offer doesn't make a difference.
  2. When you leave Lily and before you go into your home to exchange gifts, Jackson will sometimes appear on the dock after his shift, but it's not clear exactly what you need to do to make that happen. Talking to him in the office every time you can, judging the Harvest Festival, and talking to him while you're high with Lily may all increase your affinity with Jackson, triggering the final appearance.
Fun Things To Try
Did you...?

  • Get the password to Timothy's computer wrong three times?
  • Read all the descriptions when you're high?
  • Try going into Lily's house when you're high?
  • Talk to Jackson when you're high?
  • Look at the Fyre nightclub when you're high?
  • Put 02.mp3 in the game directory?
  • Get the best ending?

Oh thanks so much! What about the floppy? Haven't been able to click on anything in front of the Dolphin.

The squash seeds are found next to the helipad once the deer’s done munching on them.
