Pentiment is becoming increasingly popular, with players appreciating the strong emphasis on plot and the impact of choices on the subsequent story. The title also did not lack the opportunity to romance one of the characters. In this guide you will learn how to start this romance, so you can get the achievement in the game.
At the outset, it is worth noting that the dialogue options differ depending on what choices we made at the beginning of the game.. You can read more about it here.
Romance with Sister Zdena
In Pentiment you can have a romance with a nun named Zdena. In order to do so, in the first act, you need to go to the library during the night and hide between the bookshelves. You will then notice that Rudeger and Mathieu are having an affair. You should wait and select the option "All Right. I just need to wait for Rudeger and Mathieu to leave. Just a little patience ...".
After this selection, the time will skip to breakfast time and you will find that Andreas fell asleep under the bookcase. He will then be awakened by his sister Zdena. To start a romance with her, conduct the dialogue as follows:
Zdena - Well, are you here for the books or for me?
Andreas - You, of course.
Zdena - I'd call you a liar, but I know it's the truth. You probably pray every evening that when you knock on the door in the morning that I'll answer instead of Illuminata.
Andreas - Something like that
Zdena - Do you want to keep talking?
Andreas - Go for it
Then a romance will occur and an achievement called "Kiss Zdena" will be unlocked..
Interestingly, if you don't have the "Go for it" option, you can choose "What else would we do?". Then Zdena will get upset and let Andreas know that she wants him to kiss her.
However, keep in mind that Pentiment is full of choices and many of them affect the story told in the game. Romancing sister Zdena also has its consequences. Because of such a strong emphasis on choices, it's worth playing the game twice to learn the differences in the fates of the characters encountered along the way.
