Welcome to 1979 Revolution: Black Friday, a narrative-driven adventure game that takes place in Iran during the public revolution against the Shah. As with many narrative-driven games, there isn't any difficulty, and the gameplay consists of following linear chapters to experience the story. The story in this game is pretty compelling, and is entirely based on fact. There are normally a ton of collectibles to pick up, but a handy glitch avoids the need for that. More on that below. Let's get started.
The vast majority of achievements in this game are either story related or collectible related. The story-related achievements naturally don't require any explanation, but the collectible achievements can look daunting at first glance. Thankfully, they are tracked and unlocked in such a way that eliminates the need to find them all: the tracker for each achievement increases every time you view a story, even if it's the same one. So you don't need to see all unique stories for each achievement; you can simply view the same one over and over to unlock the corresponding achievement. You'll still need to find one story of each type, but it significantly reduces the number to find and the need for much of a collectible guide. The "Ostad: Story Master" achievement solution has more information.
Aside from collectibles, there are a handful of miscellaneous chapter-specific achievements, or ones that are tied to choices made over the course of the game. They are:
- Cooperate during all of the interrogations throughout the game for the "Namard: The Coward" achievement. This should be pretty self explanatory. Any time you're being interrogated, go along with whatever is said or asked of you
- There is one achievement for making only peaceful choices throughout the game, and another for making only violent choices. Both of these are thankfully only tied to four specific decisions in four chapters. On your first playthrough, make all of one type of choice. Then, with chapter replay, replay each of the four chapters and make the other type of choice. The "Mazloom: The Pacifist" achievement solution has the points which matter
- There are four Quick Time Events that you'll need to do without a mistake for the "Pahlevoon: The Hero" achievement
- There are two trauma Quick Time Events that you'll also need to successfully complete for the "Agha Doktor: The Doctor" achievement
If you're missing any achievements, you can use chapter replay to pick up what you missed, such as collectibles, decision-based achievements, or anything else you may have missed.
Black Friday has a very compelling narrative that really makes you feel for the people on both sides (violent and peaceful) of the revolution, and you can imagine why a story like this would be difficult to get out of Iran. The achievements are also made far simpler thanks to tracking glitches, making this a very easy and pretty quick completion, which also provides a great story. Enjoy the completion!
