Countess in Crimson: Basic Walkthrough (Dialog Choices Guide)

If you are not looking for spoilers, this guide is not for you. Dialog information to allow you to select the right dialog to achieve the results you want.

 

Introduction

This game is being released as Early Access. This means that some things covered in this guide may change as the game changes. This guide was written using version 0.8.6.

There are three character traits that affect which women are attracted to you: Empathy, Impressionable, and Naughty. These are easily manipulated, however Empathy and Naughty normally appear together and you can only select one. It is possible to gain the required traits without having to spend time going through all of the character dialog, and only doing the main game dialog. The Countess does require both the Wishing Well and Fountain if you do not do more than the main game dialog.

There are two character traits that determine which ending you will receive: Sanity and Curiosity. The most difficult stat to gain is Curiosity. Some Curiosity gains are not obvious.

Chapter 6 is intentionally vague as what you need to do will depend on which ending you get. The items listed are common to all four endings.

This guide is mainly for the dialog choices, however it will also serve as a basic walkthrough.
