How to Get the Shielded by Madness Achievement / Trophy
Just want to confirm what the Developers have said. You need to start a brand new game from the very beginning on H.P. Lovecraft difficulty.
Playthrough until chapter 5, then collect and read the following documents:
- Taxidermist instructions
- Poem by Berenice
- Letter from an artist
- Third experiment repor
- Doctor Alan Cedrac`s note
- Dismantling notice
- First experiment report
- Second experiment report
Note: The photograph document after you solve the picture puzzle is NOT required.
Complete chapter 5, then finish the finale and the trophy/achievement should pop during the final cutscene.
There are many guides online that say that you just need to change the difficulty at the end of chapter 5 or at the end of the finale. This will not get you the achievement/trophy. You must play through the game from the start.
My advice is to use backup saves/cloud saves. Back them up after you complete a short block of progress if you are struggling.
