Wayward sky bills itself as a "Look and Click VR Adventure." You play from a 3rd person perspective guiding the main character through 4 different types of levels. Each area has different puzzles to solve. You point the controller to tell Bess and robots where to go and what to do. Some control panels require motions with cranks, switches and levers to solve.
Just play through the game and enjoy it. In every area take a second to look around for the collectible canisters and keep an eye out for the windchime stations (blue stations with a pipe arch on top). There is a chapter select so don't worry if you missed something. This is a VR game so trying to play and watch a collectible guide isn't worth it your first time through. Almost every collectible and windchime station is in plain view or just barely obscured so it's highly likely you will find them all without help.

Play fetch with a chicken
In the second area a plane gets shot down as you are climbing to the top of the island. When this happens you receive a flashback to earlier in the day. Once you get outside the barn but before you get into the plane you will want to walk over to the table with the wrench. Open the case and grab one of the balls inside. Throw it somewhere the chickens can get to it. They will run and grab it and bring it back to you. When this happens the trophy will pop. If you throw them too far the balls will respawn inside the case.

Assemble all windchimes
In each of the 4 main sections there are 5 sets of windchimes to assemble. These all look like blue stations with a pipe arch on top. How you assemble the windchimes does not matter. When completed each will light up green on the arch in the order they appear in the level. Some areas will not allow you to go back so if you do miss one you will need to use the chapter select after you beat the game. To the left of the main menu screen you can check your progress and see which you have missed. If you have to go back and get these they will all appeared un-assembled but there will be whooshing sounds for those you have collected already and the lights will be green. These windchime stations will usually be in plain view but will sometimes require you to trigger additional platforms or elevators to get to them. Some will also be around the sides of areas just out of view but the walkway will give away their location. Only one in the first level is really hidden and it's in the middle of the pile of shipping crates.

Score 100 points on the arcade machine
Once you have collected a complete robot (see Good Looking Out) you can play the arcade machine to the right of the main menu area. It is harder using the move controllers for this as it sometimes has trouble tracking the left controller that moves the character. I was still easily able get 100 points with the move controller but you can switch to the dualshock controller if you are having problems. To get 100 points you have to kill 100 scavenger bots that fly from right to left without letting 5 touch the left side. You move your robot and spam the attack button (either works) to destroy them. If you decide to use the move controllers the trick for the left hand is to not just hold down the action button and try to move the arcade's joystick. Instead make short movements and then release the action button on occasion so it doesn't lose tracking. Otherwise just use the left stick on the dual shock. The enemies start slow and get progressively faster so you should get 100 points in no time.
Good Looking Out -
Collect all Automata capsule figures
There are 5 bronze colored capsules and 1 blue capsule in each area. They are spread out pretty evenly throughout the level so expect on average 1 per puzzle room. They are almost always in plain sight or just barely out of sight. If you look around each room you will see them. To collect them put the pointer on them and click the action button when they highlight. When you collect them a window pops up showing what part you found and a green light will light up for each. The lights are in the order they appear in the level so it will give you an idea of roughly where any of them are that you missed. You can view your progress at the arcade machine to the right of the main menu area.
