I'm looking forward to playing this. I love the look of the environments and the atmosphere. It reminds me of Myst in many ways. Glad to see this will be an easy and enjoyable platinum, with a guide at least 👍

If it has puzzles similar to Myst then it's cool, if it's another walking simulator with the amnesiac protagonist then meh.

More of the latter... I played it on PC and was disappointed. I think it's a boring game.

 

I quit my playthrough halfway through and watched the ending on YT. Cuz.. y'know .. fast forward.

I played this on Steam. It is much walking simulator with OK history and not heavy puzzle lik Myst and Obduction.

 

But very easy to get Platinum.

I got all the achievements on the xbox version, absolutely not a "walking simulator" compared to something like Gone Home or Everybody's Gone to the Rapture. Most of the game is structured in a way where you'll go to an area where you need to figure out 1 big elaborate puzzle to progress and you do that by solving other smaller puzzles to make the big one available or give you the knowledge you need to solve it.

 

My main advice for trophies is that while the game does have a chapter select, unless it's changed for this version of the game you can only start from the beginning of the chapter. So if you've missed something for your notebook that is at the very end of the chapter it means you'll have to play the whole thing to get that one entry. Not too big of a deal for the first 3 chapters, but chapters 4 and 5 in particular are pretty long. My advice is once you've finished the first big puzzle of those chapters (very obvious as they will open a new pathway for you to leave the current area you're in) just make a save file you can come back to later. The game gives you like 4 save slots iirc? Notebook progress is not based on the individual save so you can jump around freely.

 

I went into the game blind and even with chapter select pretty much had to play through the whole game twice to get everything I missed.

This is not a walking sim. A pure point and click type adventure game. Fun little game with some neat puzzles. There was only one puzzle towards the end of chapter 3 that was absurd. Completed Xbox and PC back to back on gamepass. Will get this one later on sale.

I think lens aligner in Chapter 2 is bugged, literally tried for a good 30 minutes, mine looked exactly as it was in guide but still nothing happened. I don't know has anyone else gotten this or is it just me?

I don't know what guide you are using but this should be the solution 

 

Spoiler

 

Small circle one – one and four

Small circle two – three and five

Medium circle one – one and two 

Medium circle two – three and three

Large circle one – three and one

Large circle two – five and three

I like a lot of walking sims but this game is boring imo. Don't really have any emotional attachment to any of the characters, the puzzles are boring and this game commits the cardinal sin of having a slow "run" speed so it takes probably twice as long as it would if you could move around the game world freely
