The achievements for the Steam version of Year Walk span from the normal to extremely difficult. Here are some tips for the ones that may be a bit more difficult to understand or complete.
New Year – This one is simple but requires precise timing, obviously.
No Clues – The PC version of the game has a hints system — don’t use it, and you can nab this achievement. Do a full year walk without any hints.
Lost – This one is easy. Simply don’t open the map during the duration of an entire walk.
Year Run – Do a full year walk in 20 minutes.
Cheat Walk – Simply never touch the doll or the rune. You’ll need the puzzle code for the owls, which is left, right, left, right, right, right, left, left, as well as the secrets of the rune, which tell you which way to turn when you arrive at the church. The directional sequence at the church is left, right, left, right, right, left, right.
OWL 6 – This achievement is unlocked if you input a different left-right pattern at the owls. This pattern is from another Simogo game, Device 6.
The pattern is LRRLLLRLRL
Watchers’ Stone Cryptogram – Lift the watchers’ stone cryptograms into the following pattern:
- The Huldra = 4 dots
- The Horse = 0 dots
- The Raven = 1 dot
- The Myling = 1 dot
Clockwise Minute Box – Line up the shapes on the box puzzle with the coordinating times. The pattern is upside-down triangle, rhombus, circle, rhombus, top-half circle
Digital Rune – At the rune stone, make a figure 8 with the stars.
Logo Type – When the title screen comes up “YEAR WALK,” click “ear” to spell the word ear.
