Heartbound: Achievements Walkthrough Guide

Heartbound is a non-traditional role-playing game about a boy, his dog, secrets, and sanity.

Heartbound Achievements

An achievement guide for Heartbound.

To begin, this guide does include SPOILERS, so please close this guide if you want to seek out these achievements the traditional way. In addition, this guide is currently unfinished because the game is not finished. I will be updating it as I find more of these, and they will be posted in the order they can be found. [Shoe Gaskets are an exception to this.]

Please feel free to comment if you know how to get an achievement that I have not obtained. It would be highly appreciated.

Master Chef

Achievement Description: It’s a secret.

During the cafeteria job, you not only have to feed all thirty employees before the time runs out, but you ALSO can’t drop anything. Save beforehand. Seriously.

The video below was not made by me and is a perfect example of how to achieve this. Godspeed.

Into The Deep

Achievement Description: N/A

This achievement requires that you go to Floor Zero in Chapter Two. Find it on your own, or let me hold your hand and lead you right to it. All it costs it for you to look below. Watch your step, nerdhire.

How to reach Floor 0: Second row, on the right. Head inside the room and interact with the black liquid in the sink to meet Birder. You can’t have ducks on your head or the sticky on your face when interacting with the sink. After finishing your job in the cafeteria, go to the Mailshroom and go downstairs. Boom.

Upon descending the stairs and making your way to the main room of Floor Zero, you will see a heart and a terminal. Interact with the terminal to get this achievement.

Salamurder

Achievement Description: It’s a secret.

Chapter Two, Tower F2: Go into the cubicle with all of the fluffy and not-so-fluffy friends inside and check the drawer. You’ll notice that it’s filled with salamander treats, and if you look away from this guide long enough, you’ll see a salamander run by, as well. This may take a few tries, but quickly check the drawer and then step back to step on the salamander as it runs by.

Congratulations, you’ve murdered an innocent creature.

Vaporwave Is Dead

Achievement Description: It’s a secret.

Chapter Three [can be done in early access]: Go to the far north end of Animus to find a pond and some lily pads. Wait until exactly 08:08, then a secret path will open up. You can be a cheating cheater by changing your computer’s clock to 8:07 and waiting for a minute if you don’t feel like doing this the traditional way.

You can then pick up the Aesthetic in this new area to obtain the achievement.

Chapter Two, F2: Diagonal of the guy in 3A is a guy with no papers at all, unlike the one in 3A. Speak to the one who has nothing and he’ll tell you about how the fellow in 3A took all of his papers.

On The Loose

Achievement Description: It’s a secret.

Chapter Two, F1: When you have all five ducks on your head, hug the north wall when heading back towards the room Phish is in, and there is an invisible path that takes you up to a goose. Interact with it to get this achievement.

Achievement Description: It’s a secret.

Time to put your ten dancing fingers to use, kiddos. Find your save file for Heartbound, it’s time to edit it. You need to find and change the 245th line in the file to “42”. Then there will be toast in the toaster. Interacting with it gives you the achievement.

    Exit Lore’s Room without the Sweater, and do not pick up the Axe. While fighting the Barghest, take no damage on either encounter.
    Vaporwave Is Dead
    Requirement: Enter the Vapor Cave in Animus and interact with the Aesthetic.
    The Vapor Cave is a secret area located in Animus. This secret room is only accessible if the player’s clock reaches 20:08. When this happens, a bridge of lily pads will appear, allowing the player to walk to the other side of the lake. Once there, the player can step into the mushroom ring to enter.
