1979 Revolution: Black Friday ~ Platinum Walkthrough (Text)
1979 Revolution: Black Friday ~ Platinum Walkthrough (Video)
 






1979 Revolution: Black Friday is an interactive drama video game developed by Digerati Distribution. The game is based on true stories and historical events that took place during 1978 and 1979. You'll play as a photojournalist as you're pulled into the revolution.

Trophy-wise, the Platinum is easy to obtain if you're following either a text or video walkthrough. There are no missable trophies at all due to chapter select being available. You're required to complete the game at least once with the focus of being peaceful or violent. There is also a trophy for never failing the QTEs (Quick Time Events), but the QTEs in this game are very easy and shouldn't be an issue.

There are also collectibles that you're required to collect if you want to obtain the Platinum trophy. It is impossible to obtain them all in a single playthrough, but there is a beneficial glitch that helps with this. It turns out that the game counts the same collectibles you already collected before. For example, if you reload a chapter and collect the collectibles from it, they will count towards the Ostad: Story Master trophy.

As for the choices and dialogue, most of choices in the game don't matter that much. This means you can pick the first choice nearly every time. However, there will be a few choices that you're required to select if you want certain trophies to unlock. The important choices that you need to make are in the Platinum Walkthrough.
 







Step 1: Complete the game by focusing on making all peaceful choices + complete every QTE without failure

When starting the game, it's recommended that you focus on making all peaceful choices first and completing every Quick Time Events without failure. This will greatly save you time and narrow down the trophies that you'll need to cleanup later. Never select any violent choices or start any fights that you can avoid.

While playing the game, go for every collectible that you can obtain during this playthrough. You won't be able to get them all because it's impossible to collect all the Stories in the first playthrough. The rest of the Stories can be cleaned up later.

Other than that, always select the first choices in the dialogue wheel. When you need to make an important choice, then be sure to make the correct choices as instructed in the Trophy Guide. It's highly recommended that you follow the Platinum Walkthrough as it is written with step-by-step instructions on how to complete the entire game with all the peaceful choices made.

At the end of the step, you'll have the following trophies:

  • Dark Days
  • One of Us
  • Disco, Of Course
  • Shekamu: The Foodie
  • Not the Iran You Left
  • Glorious Shining Iran
  • Show the World
  • Big Brother
  • Just a Knock
  • Radio City Cinema
  • A Clearer Picture
  • Jaasoos: The Spy
  • Roshanfekr: The Intellectual
  • Khodemooni: The People Person
  • Join the Revolution
  • Pulled the Trigger
  • Recognize This Kid
  • Foozool: The Snoop
  • The Little Black Fish
  • Martial Law
  • Enghelabi: The Revolutionary
  • Mazloom: The Pacifist
  • Black Friday
  • Agha Doktor: The Doctor
  • Taghooti: The Royalist
  • Ostad: Story Master
  • High Noon
  • I Was Dead
  • Namard: The Coward
  • The End
  • Doshman: My Enemy
  • Pahlevoon: The Hero



Step 2: Cleanup remaining trophies using chapter select + making all violent choices

This step will be needed as a full playthrough of the game isn't enough to obtain all trophies. Thanks to Chapter Select found in the PLAY section of the main menu of the game, you can quickly go back to certain sections of the game to make different choices. These choices will save when you complete the chapter or if you're just after a specific trophy, you can quit to the main menu after unlocking them. There are a few trophies that will require you to complete the entire chapter(s).

With that in mind, it's highly recommended that you continue following the Platinum Walkthrough as it also includes the step-by-step instructions on what to do during your cleanup playthrough.

At the end of the step, you'll have the following trophies:

  • Akaas: The Photographer
  • Sarbaaz: The Soldier
  • Hajji: The Pilgrim
  • Jam Konandeh: The Collector
  • Heepster: The Hipster
  • Baradar: My Brother
  • Vahshi: The Savage
  • True revolutionary

  • Unlock all stories in 1979 Revolution: Black Friday

    GLITCHED in a good way with Patch Version 1.01 and (Collectible)

    For this trophy, you're required to collect all the Stories in the game. Stories are the collectibles which can be found by pressing and selecting 'STORIES'. There's a total of 86 of them throughout the game and are only obtained by doing the following things:

    • Story Related progression - Earned naturally just by playing the game.
    • Dialogue choices - Some of the stories are related to choices from the dialogue wheel.
    • Taking Pictures - You have the choice to take picture during certain sections of the game and as an optional choice when exploring the environments. These pictures are also Stories and there are many pictures that you can take throughout the game.
    • Intractable Objects - Some stories can only be collected if you interact and examine objects around the environment.
    • Interacting with People - There are a few sections in the game where you're able to interact with people in the Revolution to obtain their Stories.
    • Cassette Tapes - There are 6 of these cassette tapes scattered throughout the game. You will need to do a cleanup playthrough to get them all as it's impossible to obtain all cassette tapes in a single playthrough.


    Since you can't get everything from the first playthrough, using the Chapter Select will unlock the remain collectible trophies.

    As you're playing the game and following either the text or video walkthrough, you will notice that you're unlocking a few collectible related trophies early than intended. This is due to a beneficial glitch in the game where collecting the same collectibles will still count towards the total 86. I actually unlocked this trophy at only 79/86 during Chapter 16: Black Friday.

    Commonly-missed collectibles trophies:

    • Sarbaaz: The Soldier
    • Akaas: The Photographer
    • Jam Konandeh: The Collector

    During Chapter 14: The Little Black Fish, you'll eventually have a lantern and will be in your father's office looking for a camera. To unlock this trophy, go around the room and interact with everything that until this trophy unlocks. It's difficult to pinpoint the exact number of objects you need to search, but it shouldn't be an issue. Just ignore the green highlight icon that you find in the room as this green interaction icon will end the chapter because it's the camera and is in a random location every time. Once you've found everything the trophy should pop.

  • Never fail a fight or run into an obstacle.

    For this trophy to unlock, you'll need to complete the entire game without once failing a Quick Time Event (QTE). All QTEs involve fighting and avoiding obstacles. They are quite easy and never change at all, so you can memorize them or copy the solutions from a walkthrough. The Peaceful playthrough will have 4 QTEs while the Violent playthrough will have 5. If you've completed them all without failure, then the trophy will unlock at the very end of the game for completing Chapter 19: The End.

    Below is a list of chapters with the QTEs as well as their inputs:

    1. Chapter 1 - , repeatedly
