The Endless Journey – Full Walkthrough

The Endless Journey - Full Walkthroughs

A minimal guide to completing The Endless Journey, so that you may experience this beautiful game for yourself.


To fully understand the story, it is recommended to talk to everyone and do some exploring before proceeding (especially in Chapter 3). You can turn on hints for an idea of what you can interact with.

The maps are pretty linear and easy to explore. This guide won’t tell you exactly how to get to every place, but will provide guidance as to where to go and what to look for (eg: general store is the store with the random stuff).

Some puzzle answers are included as spoilers. The numbering corresponds to objects from left to right. You can also choose to skip a puzzle without consequence other than missing an achievement.

Most achievements are straight-forward and can be obtained by simply progressing through the game. A few of the more obscure ones are included as spoilers.

Trophy item locations are also not included. They are not difficult to find, and it’s more fun to look for them yourself.
