Tips - No Point in Dying - Spoilers

Thanks! This trophy is a pain. Maybe I'll attempt it again in the future with these tips on hand.

My tip would be to just keep playing and eventually you'll have it down. The only really hard part is the last few sections which rely heavily on sound, so turn down the music, have headphones and make sure the room is silent so you know when to jump.

Yeah I've tried this a few times so far. The trophy wouldn't be so bad except that a run takes a minimum of something like 45 minutes. Having to do the whole thing in one run rather than one save really makes it a pain since you have to have a dedicated time slot available to complete it in. I know they do this so you can't just pause the game at a death and reload your save.

 

I'll get this one eventually, but I'm not terribly fond of game developers making almost all trophies non story related. I hate that if you complete the game all the way through you only get one trophy out of it. The rest are all hidden items.

 

Good luck to all trying for this, I would imagine it will take most awhile.

Only tip i would give is if you have died before the hotel bit, then restart.

 

i had the advantage of playing clean run on PS4 whilst practicing via chapter select on the PS3, might be an option for some people.

 

Once i had done the PS4 run, the PS3 clean run was a breeze.

Fortunately for me, I was able to do it first 'proper' attempt. By this I mean that I had practiced the 'hard' bits previously, and played through the game for fun + collectibles already.

 

I died a total of 5 times (some at stupid bits, haha):

  1. Where the 3 guys chase you over the pit + two buttons with squishy things. I hesitated on the big button and got squished
  2. Going up into the sewer, didn't jump up and fell in the water (didn't even know you could die here...)
  3. Cogwheel after getting the brain-sucker after seeing the girl (didn't time jump, fell in the hole, didn't know you could die here either...)
  4. With 2 blocks and the saw (where you have to press the buttons, push one underneath the other, then jump up). I just got too excited here :P
  5. Swinging over the electricity on the chain (mis-timed and second-guessed myself).

 

I also have a few quick tips:

  • Definitely replay the specific parts you find difficult; I found it good to just play through the game again (when going for collectibles) so you are aware of all the little things (like when to jump backwards to avoid the fire tire, for example)
  • Take it slow and steady; in most cases, it's not a rush. Take your time before attempting the big jumps, and count yourself in. For things like the HOTEL sign, it's great to practice heaps of times and time yourself so you know exactly when to jump; takes a lot of the stress away!
  • Stay calm: like other 'no / few deaths' trophies, the key point is to not work yourself up so much that you make a mistake. Either be chatting with friends while doing it, listen to music, or just take deep breaths.
  • Turn up the volume; might seem to be a bit contradictory to the above, but hear me out. For a lot of the puzzles (particularly the last few), knowing exactly what is happening through sound is extremely helpful. Don't neglect this! It makes the game more atmospheric and fun anyway :)

OP has some good tips for specific sections as well, check that out for anything else :)
