Tips and Tricks (mild spoilers, no details)

Sayori Ending

Unavoidable. Simply play the game.

Natsuki Ending

After Sayori’s ending, write two poems for Natsuki in the first two days of Act 2. Use “cute” words.

Yuri Ending

After Sayori’s ending, spend time with Yuri until she shows you her final poem. When spending the weekend with her, optionally take a peek at the backlog, then turn on text skip.

Monika’s Ending

After Yuri’s ending, open up the game folder while the game is running and when you appear to be in an endless loop, delete Monika’s .chr file, then return to the game. Attempt to start a new game.

Good Ending

If you previously reached any of the endings, either delete and reinstall the game or delete the file called “firstrun” in the game folder and choose “Yes” on starting the game again. Alternatively, you can go straight for this one from the beginning.

To achieve this ending, unlock all CGs. To do this, save at the first poem, then play through writing poems for Natsuki (“cute” words), then reload the save before Sayori’s ending (before choosing love or friendship). Then repeat the first Act, writing poems for Sayori (“adventurous” words).

After Sayori’s ending, write poems for Yuri (dark, bleak, emotional and complex words) and proceed to Monika’s ending. Wait until you see Monika’s CG, then delete her character file. Restart the game.

Quick Ending

Delete Monika or Sayori’s character file before starting a new game. Reopen the game after it closes and wait ten minutes.
