True Fear ~ Trophy Walkthrough
Lots of notes for this walkthrough:
I am fairly certain this game cannot be Platinumed - mostly due to the "all puzzles under 60 seconds" trophy. Even using the touchpad, there are a few puzzles that seem next to impossible to do in under 60 seconds. The publisher (The Digital Lounge) has expressed to me on Twitter that they are willing to change this trophy if enough people give them feedback about it.
The game must be completed IN A SINGLE SITTING, without closing the game. I'm not 100% sure you can even go back to the main menu, to be honest. Pausing is okay.
Once you've finished the main game, you will have access to all of the HO scenes from the main game in the Bonus menu. Finishing the bonus chapter will put those HO scenes in there, too. I haven't tried to see if solving the HO scenes via the Bonus menu counts towards the "all HO scenes in under 2 minutes" trophy - someone please let me know. I know the puzzles (also accessible) won't count, because not all of what the game deems "puzzles" are accessible via the bonus menu, because --
-- Here's what sucks: smaller puzzles like moving stuff around also seem to count as sub-60 second puzzles – I got a trophy for moving the trash around to find the crowbar in Act II. As such, I cannot definitively say what does and does not count towards the "all puzzles in under 60 seconds" trophy. Sorry.
This game actually controls a bit better if you use the touchpad. Using the analog stick makes the controls stiff; it's much more fluid with the touchpad.
“Go (direction)” means using the d-pad to navigate to a new screen. So “go up” means D-Pad up, etc. You can still use the more familiar “arrow shown on screen” method that is standard with games like this, but I found describing d-pad directions a bit easier for the purpose of this walkthrough.
You can track trophy progress! Under “Options”, at the bottom you'll see a “Trophy” option. Click on that to see progress bars. This will be more helpful later while you're working towards the “all puzzles/HO scenes under X amount of time” trophies, as there is only a limited space for trophy tracking, but once you've unlocked trophies, they will disappear from this tracker.
You have two options for HO puzzles: you can solve a traditional HO puzzle (wordbank/find the object) or, if “hidden object scenes” is not checked in the Options menu (and by default, it won't be), you can solve a series of puzzles in each HO scene. I actually recommend not doing the wordbank HO scenes, as there's generally more stuff to deal with in those. This walkthrough is written with the puzzle solutions for the HO scenes instead of the wordbank HO scenes.
Sharp Sighted and Sharp Sighted II unlock when the other's conditions are met.
Yes You Can can be cheesed. I played on casual, then when I was in the studio right before I ended the game, I switched the difficulty to Expert. Trophy popped after credits as though I'd played on expert. This isn't particularly helpful, as you can't use hints anyways, but it does make interactible stuff glitter, so there's that.
