Introduction:

Welcome to the Procession to Calvary Trophy Guide!
The Procession to Calvary is an absurdist, Monty Python-esque point and click adventure game utilizing Renaissance art, originally developed and released by Joe Richardson for PC in 2020, and ported to PS4 in 2021.  You play as a soldier fresh off of the Holy War, on a mission for the newly-crowned Immortal John to kill his rival, Heavenly Peter.

A full Trophy Walkthrough is also provided below. If you are enjoy my work, please consider donating to my Ko-fi.

Roadmap:

Step 1: Pacifist Playthrough – Endings 2 and 3
This will be the bulk of your platinum time as well as the majority of the trophy list.  You must actually play through the game instead of just killing everyone on your way to victory.  Just remember to make a separate save in the final room of the game (in the Basilica, where Heavenly Peter is) to save yourself an entire second playthrough of the game.  Keep an eye out for the missable trophies.

You’ll be earning these trophies (in likely order):
Bronze Whoopsie!
Silver Spank the Bishop (MISSABLE)
Silver Abuse Democracy
Bronze Duped!
Gold Magician’s Assistant #1
Silver Brawler (MISSABLE)
Silver Who’s a good boy!? (MISSABLE)
Gold Magician’s Assistant #2
Bronze Win the Talent Show
Gold Magician’s Assistant #3
Silver Holy Book (MISSABLE)
Silver Make a Friend
Bronze King for a Day
Silver Appease the Devil
Bronze Swapsies
Bronze Treasure Hunter
Silver First Blood
Gold The End #3
Gold The End #2

Step 2: Psycho Killer – Ending 1
Start a new game.  You will want to kill everyone you can between you and Heavenly Peter – See Gold Serial Killer for a full list.

During this step you’ll earn these trophies:
Gold Serial Killer
Gold The End #1
40-platinum King of the Trophies!

Step 3: Cleanup (optional)
If you missed any of the missable trophies in Steps 1 or 2, you will need to start a new playthrough to obtain them.

Tips and Strategies:

MAKE MANUAL SAVES.  The save menu says there’s an autosave, but I never noticed it. 
You only have three manual save slots.

King of the Trophies!
King of the Trophies!

Are you suggesting that coconuts migrate?

Whoopise!
The Lord is near the brokenhearted; he delivers those who are discouraged.

At the very beginning of the game, walk as far to the right as you can, then jump over the cliff.

Abuse Democracy upscale-245262160018212
I appeal to you, brothers and sisters, that all of you agree with one another in what you say.

Story-related and cannot be missed.

You will need to get three people outside of the field hospital to convince the man on crutches to give you the crutches. To do so, you need to speak to each to figure out why they’re at the hospital, then solve their problems.

Resting Knight needs a pair of scissors
Reticent Knight just needs a pat on the head
Reclining Knight needs a pair of socks

Once you’ve helped all three, ask the man with crutches for the oars, and all of the knights will agree that you should have them.

Duped!
My wounds stink and are corrupt because of my foolishness.

Story-related and cannot be missed.

When you arrive to town, you will not be allowed in. The woman who gave you a ride will offer you a pass if you help her out. You will need to give her an apple (found in the torture area) and a wheel (cut down the man being crucified on a wheel).

Story-related and cannot be missed.

You will unlock this when you help the Street Magician escape crucifixion – give him the pile of bones from the graveyard and the pliers from the stomach of the man being rotated over the fire in the torture area.

Magician’s Assistant #3 Gold
Keep on, then, with your magic spells and with your many sorceries…

Story-related and cannot be missed.

The righteous choose their friends carefully, but the way of the wicked leads them astray.

Story-related and cannot be missed.

In the cave in the graveyard is a barrel of bugs.  Pick up some bugs and give them to the skunk in the crucifixion area.  He will start following you around and you’ll unlock this trophy.

The End #1 Gold
…Jesus said, “It is finished.” And with that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.

If you kill anyone at any point during your playthrough, this is the ending you will unlock.  As such, this is best combined with Gold Serial Killer.

The End #2 Gold
You say, ‘I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.’

For this ending, you need to reach Heavenly Peter without killing anyone.  When he speaks to you, he will offer you riches.  You then have the option to agree to the riches.  Doing so will give you this trophy after the credits roll.

The End #3 Gold
and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying: for the former things are passed aw

For this ending, you need to reach Heavenly Peter without killing anyone.  When he speaks to you, he will offer you riches.  Kill him instead.  Doing this will give you this trophy after the credits roll.

MISSABLE

Once you are in possession of the book from the dead man in the graveyard, take it to the torture area and put it on the head of the man next to the tree (the one who used to have an apple on his head).  Then speak with the bowman and tell him to shoot the book off of the man’s head.

Spank the Bishop upscale-245262160018212
…whoever shall slap thee on thy right cheek, turn to him also the other.

MISSABLE

On the very first screen of the game, you will notice a few grovelers in front of Immortal John. Use the hand icon on any of them to spank them and unlock this trophy.

Brawler upscale-245262160018212
Then I will act with hostility toward you; I also will strike you seven times for your sins.

MISSABLE

There are several men in the game that, if you use the hand icon on them, you will punch.  You need to do this seven times to unlock the trophy.  I just did this on the sitting men in the Basilica, as they say something different every time you hit them.

Serial Killer Gold
And for your lifeblood I will surely demand an accounting …And from each human being, too.

  • I can’t figure out how to give items to the appropriate characters. How do I access my inventory? The instructions in the settings don’t make any sense. It just says to hover the cursor. But I’m playing on PS4.
