The Letter – Through Thick and Thin Achievement Guide

A guide to getting the Through Thick and Thin Achievement.


All credit goes to Essence of Zem!

This is a simple guide for getting the Through Thick and Thin achievement. Since I had some issues myself with picking the right choices to keep the Friendship Meters high enough between Zach, Isabella, Ash, and Becca, I thought I would share the route that ended up working for me. Only choices relevant to this achievement will be listed; if a choice is not listed, you should be free to pick whatever without messing anything up. This is a pretty spoiler-free guide, but it does include the choices needed to keep the four friends alive through their various chapters, so reader beware.

Note: This may not be the only path through the game to get this achievement.
