Fool! – Walkthrough

Walkthrough routes to get all 54 achievements in Fool!

Introduction

Fool! has 54 in-game achievements, 33 of which correspond to Steam achievements. Since I only consider a game complete if I get all the available achievements, this guide is for the full set of 54.

Because many of the achievements are mutually exclusive, the best I could come up with is 7 playthroughs. That gets 7 fairly different endings, so I doubt it’s possible to reduce that much. The playthroughs will mostly have the same events (but with a variety of results) for the first two and a half acts, and you’ll start to see some real divergence in the second half of Act III. (There are probably more endings; on my first playthrough, just for fun without worrying about achievements, I got yet another ending. But that occurred in Act III Scene III, so it wasn’t a very efficient playthrough as far as achievements).

For each playthrough, I list an option for every choice. In theory, some of those choices don’t affect achievements, especially the early ones which choose your character’s gender and sexuality. The game will gender-swap some of the romance options based on those choices (or randomly assign genders if your character is bi). So you may notice slight differences in character names (e.g. Wendell/Gwendell). And, obviously, you can name your character and pet whatever you want; I just put something in each playthrough to keep the choices in order.

The results of choices vary depending on your humours, skill, and other stats at the time you make the choice, so if you want to make sure you get a particular achievement, you’ll probably want to start from the beginning of one of the playthroughs that gets that achievement.

If you do these playthroughs in order, I’ve starred the achievements for each that will be new for that playthrough.

Choice #2: I’ll turn the question around. I’m more interested in listening to their thoughts than scrounging up my own answer.

Act II Scene 3

Choice #3: I’ll wish her well and return to my company.
Choice #1: I’ll battle with the Knight with all my strength, and if it’s damaged in the meantime, perhaps that’ll be an etiquette lesson for its minders.
Choice #1: I’ll accept the apology, but let them know how sore distressed I was.
Choice #4: Their level of imbibing is unseemly. The wisest thing to do would be to give them information without giving offense.
Choice #2: I’ll turn the question around. I’m more interested in listening to their thoughts than scrounging up my own answer.
Choice #1: I should like to accompany this nameless hunter on a moonlit walk.
Choice #3: Not at all.
Choice #3: “‘Tis sore hard to see it that way, sometimes.”

Choice #3: I’m enjoying myself without drowning in drink. I’ll make it clear I’m not about to follow, without judging them for doing as they please.

Choice #2: I’ll just put a gentle hand on their back while they sort this through.
