Nicole is a Visual Novel dating sim developed and published by Winter Wolves. You play the titular character, Nicole, as she navigates her new freshman life at college. There are four boys you can choose to date, each one with their own Normal and Special Endings. You'll need to romance all four for the Platinum, but considering how quick this game is, especially if you're using skip, you'll be done in no time.

To add a twist to the standard dating sim gameplay style, they went a tad farther by adding a mystery to solve. As soon as you land at your university, you immediately find out that women are being abducted from campus and killed. That would put a damper on anyone, but you're not just anyone, so it's up to you to solve the mystery and reveal the true culprit. Good luck!

 


Like most VNs, the gameplay is simply made up of reading, choosing from multiple dialogue options and experiencing several endings. There are 9 Endings to reach, 4 Normal Endings, 4 Special Endings, and 1 Bad Ending. There are no collectibles, no battles, no hidden secrets to find, but there is one other thing you'll need to do. Nicole is able to get a job in this game and you'll need to get all 4 jobs available, but don't worry, it's super easy and all of them can be done in the same run in the span of just a couple minutes.

Overall, the game is quite short and if you make the saves outlined in this guide and the Walkthrough [LINK], you'll easily nab this in no time without too much unnecessary backtracking. With this in mind, this guide will be structured assuming you are following the same path outlined in the Walkthrough.

IMPORTANT – GAME MODES: The game has two modes: Stat-Raising Gameplay mode and Visual Novel mode. When you're given the choice, the latter has a small note attached that some trophies are related to Stat-Raising and thus cannot be earned during the VN mode. Those trophies are the 4 Job-related trophies. This can be somewhat confusing because the various endings are supposed to be earned based on the number of certain stats but you can only get them in Visual Novel mode. Despite the confusion, don't worry about it or over-stress it as my Walkthrough will take you through all of the trophies without any issues. Just know that the Stat-Raising mode is only for the Job trophies and the Visual Novel mode is for completing the story and earning all endings.


STEP ONE — Play the game while following the Walkthrough to earn Jeff's Normal and Special Endings.

As the title says, follow the Walkthrough and when you're given the choice, pick Jeff and continue down his path to get both of his endings.

By the end of this step, you will have earned:

Jeff Normal
Jeff Special


STEP TWO — Start a new game and complete Darren's Normal & Special Endings.

Once you've earned the previous 2 trophies, you can cut the game off there and start a new one. Now do the same thing as before: follow the Walkthrough and when you're given the choice, this time pick Darren and continue down his path to get both of his endings.

IMPORTANT: When you reach the point where you can choose between the four guys, make Save #1 before you pick. You'll use this save to make the next few go much faster.

By the end of this step, you will have earned:

Darren Normal
Darren Special


STEP THREE — Load Save #1 to do the 3 short runs, to earn Kurt and Ted's Endings + the Very Bad Ending.

Load the Save #1 you made during Darren's playthrough to do Kurt's, repeat the same to do Ted's, and then finally repeat it one more time to get the Very Bad Ending.

By the end of this step, you will have earned:

Kurt Normal
Kurt Special
Ted Normal
Ted Special
Very Bad!


STEP FOUR — Start a new game & earn the 4 Job trophies.

Once you've finished with all of the endings, start a new game and spam "Go home" and "Take a Nap" as many times as possible until you reach October 2nd (the date is shown at the top-left of your screen). From that point, follow the Walkthrough to see how to get all 4 jobs within just a few minutes.

By the end of this step, you will have earned:

Laboratory Assistant
Cafeteria Server
Park Volunteer
Store Clerk
Platinum Nicole

14 trophies ( 11  2  )

  • Get all other trophies.

    To get this trophy, all you'll need to do is experience all 9 endings the game has to offer and to try a few career hats on!

  • Unlock Ted Normal ending.

    See my Platinum Walkthrough [LINK] for a complete guide on how to get both endings at the same time.

    Unlike most games and, well, logic, you're actually able to get each of the boys' normal and special endings simultaneously! This fact makes the Platinum extremely short, especially if you're skipping through everything.

    This is actually because of the game's requirements for Normal vs Special endings. To reach any of the boys' normal endings, you must reach at least 900+ points in the stat that character prefers and your relationship should be at 100 points. The difference between that and the Special ending is that in addition to those 2 criteria, you also need to solve the mystery.

    The way the game uses stat points is honestly vague and confusing, but the end result is simply this: choose the correct answers in your dialogue and you'll reach that ending, just like every other Visual Novel out there.

    The choice of which boy to date will come about mid-way through. In your second playthrough (while going for Darren's endings), you'll need to make Save #1 just before you choose your man. This will greatly cut down on the time necessary for the remaining playthroughs.

    See below for a few more details, but be warned, this will spoil the story and reveal the true culprit. [SPOILER WARNING]:


    This ending can only be reached during Jeff's playthrough, but this is completely separate from his Normal & Special Endings. You discover that Jeff is the true culprit and what happens next may completely surprise you...

  • Unlock Laboratory Assistant job.

    If you're following my Walkthrough [LINK], these will be the last trophies you earn before getting the Platinum.

    The four job-related trophies can easily be earned together, and you can do these at any time you wish. To get these, you'll need to start a brand new playthrough on the Stat-Raising Gameplay mode and spam the "Go home" and "Take a nap" choices as much as possible until you reach October 2nd (the date is shown at the top-left of your screen). Because you're starting at the beginning of September, this is going to take some time. In addition, there will be several dialogue choices between now and then. You can choose whatever options you want as they do not matter here. Once you reach October 2nd, simply follow the Walkthrough to see how to get all 4 jobs within just a few minutes.

    See below for a complete text walkthrough (credit to Newbie):
