Introduction:
"When Syd the Shiba Inu returns to Shiba Island after a ten-year absence, she sets off a chain of events that overturns the lives of all the dogs she had left behind. She gets back in touch with her old friend, Max, and along the way meets a mysterious Labrador retriever named Quei-Li (what's a Lab doing on the Island, anyway?). They are her only remaining allies as she tries to survive the past that made her leave the Island in the first place." - microsoft.com

Welcome to A Summer with the Shiba Inu, a visual novel by Ratalaika Games. Visual novels have been a longstanding staple of video games in Japan, and now this genre of games is being released more frequently to other regions of the globe. These games have been known to be very simple completions provided you select the proper dialogue choices. Luckily, the correct dialogue choices have been provided below, making this completion very straightforward.

Abbreviated Walkthrough:
After the game loads up, to earn these achievements quickly, we need to set some options first so that the text goes by as quickly as possible. On the main menu, select 'Preferences' and we are going to change some settings:

  • For 'Skip', enable 'Unseen Text' and 'After Choices'
  • For 'Text Speed', change to '100%'
  • For 'Auto Speed', change to '100%'

Nothing else in this menu needs to be changed. When you're done, select 'Start' to begin your first playthrough.

For each playthrough, select 'Start'. Each takes approximately 3 to 5 minutes. At the start of each playthrough, press once and all the character dialogue will speed by (if you made the changes in the 'Preferences' menu as suggested above). When you get to a choice, the game stops skipping so you can make your selection, then resumes skipping until the next choice. Achievements pertaining to your dialogue choices will unlock along the way.

There are six endings you need to reach in order to earn the entire 1000. These endings are based on your dialogue selections throughout each playthrough. By following the dialogue choices for these six achievements listed below, you will naturally unlock all 30 achievements:

  1. "A Syd Reality"
  2. "Stochastic"
  3. "New ARI Solitary ARI (NASA)"
  4. "It's a dog eat dog world"
  5. "Best Ever Reali-TI (BERT)"
  6. "Drop a Syd"

Note: The guide was written as though you are following the list in this order. If you deviate and do them in a different order, since some of the dialogue choices are the same in multiple playthroughs, the achievements tied to them will unlock in a playthrough different from what's listed above. As long as you follow the dialogue choices in these six achievements, regardless of order, you will unlock all 30 achievements.

Conclusion:
A Summer with the Shiba Inu is probably one of the easiest and quickest games you can 100% on the Xbox One. It takes little to no effort to earn the 1000, and if you follow the guide, you should have no issues in the 20-30 minutes it takes to complete this game.
