Yves’s route is locked at the start of the game. To unlock his route you will need to complete the Despair 2 endings for Lucas, Mathis, and Scien. Yves’s Salvation End is locked until you complete the finale of the game.
This route has three main endings (Despair I & II, and Salvation). There are also three Yves specific bad ends and two common route bad ends. All are included in this guide.
Because of the nature of the game, many of the storylines get pretty dark, so I have included content warnings where appropriate. These contain mild spoilers, so you will need to click to reveal them.
Once you complete Yves’s Despair End II, Act 3 – Le Salut will unlock. You will need to complete this to unlock Adolphe and Ankou.
Route Restrictions/Play Order
Mathis, Lucas, and Scien’s routes are playable from the start, with Yves unlocking after completing the other three’s Despair II ends.
You can play Mathis, Lucas, and Scien in any order you want and I highly recommend doing your first playthrough blind (it’s more fun that way).
But, if you want a recommended order, click below to see my suggestion:
Recommended Play Order
Mathis > Lucas > Scien > Yves > Ankou or Adolphe > Then do the Salvation Ends for the OG 4 LIs
Tyril’s route has one Best End and two Bad End to unlock. I have included content warnings where appropriate, so keep an eye out!
To get Tyril’s final CG, you will need to obtain 8 Yellow Roses by the end of Night of Twinkling Sphalerite (read: follow this guide exactly as written). This will unlock his POV story, The Prayer of Tyril!
For Tyril’s POV: From the main menu select Story > then select Tyril from the Love Stories > You should see a new story has been added. Enjoy!
This POV does come with the final CG
No strict play order, but I recommend playing Zenn last (before the Fellowship path)!
