Guide for Darkness Under My Bed – Achievements hints and solutions (WIP)
This guide lists all of the currently found achievements and how to get them.
As I still haven’t found all of the achievements of the game, I welcome anyone that has found any of them to comment bellow and I will update this guide with the new informations.
For each achievements, I will give you the area of where you should look, some tips if you want to try to figure them out yourself, and their solution.
Some of these achievements are also tied to the progression of the game, so following this guide will probably also help you clear some areas and puzzles tied to the progression of the game.
The achievements will be listed from the most solved to the least solved ones at the time I’m writing this guide.
Location : Middle area of the paper world.
Hint : You should explore the building’s rooms
After fixing the elevator with a Cogwheel, you can head to the 7th story of the building and visit the room on the left. If the achievement doesn’t trigger maybe you need to zoom in the guy with right click.
Location : Keypad near the start
Hint : Most people probably found this by accident, but there are also numbers that hint to the combination in the catacombs
On the keypad, enter 6666 or 0666 and solve the area you are transported to.
If you are stuck on this little area, the combination of buttons is ‘Middle’ ‘Left’ ‘Right’ and you need to skip one of the papers to unlock the door (to avoid getting to 6).
Location : All areas directly accessible from the “Scissors”/”Tape”/”Marker” area
Hint : You need to find all 7 memories, if you are missing memories, you can inspect the cardboard drawing of “Her” in the “Scissors”/”Tape”/”Marker” area, and it will tell you a memory you are missing
See the guide on finding all the memories, once you found them all and investigated behind the cardboard drawing, you can revisit the path a second time to get the achievement
Location : First Mission, near the start area.
Hint : This is very easy to miss, but you should look for something that looks like the thumbnail.
When entering the “Scissors”/”Marker”/”Tape” area of the First Mission, visit the cardboard box to the right (The one where you get the nut from in the main mission).
Once inside, zoom in on the bug above the torn off page with right click to get the achievement.
(It is probably also possible to get from the main mission, but this is where I got the achievement)
Location : Start area
Hint : You need to find a way to worn out your battery
Hint 2 : If you haven’t you should unlock the kitchen shortcut (the one that kills your power) before trying something
You first need to unlock the kitchen shortcut (the one that kills your power). If you already have done so, you can head for the shortcut and when the power goes out, you can go back to the plug and recharge the battery.
Do this several times until your battery gets worn out and dies.
Location : Kitchen area + power shortage area
Hint : The thumbnail shows the crumbs, you can try something with them
When you enter the kitchen via cracking the nut in the “Scissors”/”Tape”/”Marker” area, you can scare the mouse off the crumbs and take them. Do not give it to the starving doll in the kitchen and get to the power shortage area with them.
You can give the crumbs to the starving doll here to trigger the achievement.
Location : Paper world, path on the right
Hint : Try discarding something so irreplaceable that you would go look into the trash to get it back
While clearing the hot building, when you get the key you can throw it in the dumpster.
After that you will have the option to get it back when inspecting the dumpster again.
The achievement triggers when you get your key back.
(It probably can also work with some other items but I can only got the achievements once when doing it with the key)
Location : Paper world, left path
Hint : You need to find an alternative way to solve this area, and the thumbnail gives you a pretty good idea of what to get
You first need to use the fishing rod in the well and leave it be.
Then you should go to the future using the hourglass.
You will be able to get a fish from the fishing rod you have set in the past.
Go back to the past.
Give the fish to the beggar.
(If the achievement didn’t trigger, maybe you need to also give him the coin before the fish)
Location : Paper world, left path, right path
Hint : You probably need to find some of the same memories at multiple places, like the “Face” memory or the “Eyes” memory. I originally thought that it triggered when you found all of the memories but the achievement statistics shows that more people cleared “Her” than “Vague memory”.
You probably need to find the face memory in the left path of paper world using the fish route, or find it in the right path in the ‘lost & found’ area. Or maybe you also need to find the Eyes memory in the Blur area after the “sickness” zone.
(I’m not too sure about the completion criteria for this one but I got it before the “Her” achievement while grabbing memories)
Location : Paper world, middle path
Hint : This achievement can be done after fixing your signal problem
After enhancing your signal with the antenna, you can head towards the elevator and back to where the antenna was.
There you should zoom in on the birds with right click and you should get the achievement
Kate (Doll achievement)
Location : Inside the house that appears on the tape, (Area accessible via Paper world, right path)
Hint : You need to successfully follow Kate in the basement. (Not in the tape accessible early on)
Hint 2 : If you haven’t reached the house area yet, you’ll need to make a door on the right path of Paper world, without burning the building (it will burn on it’s own if you try to stick the door together without doing anything)
To get to the house area, in the Paper world, right path. You need to dispose of the match before sticking the door together to avoid burning the pile of papers, if it doesn’t work you maybe need to find all memories before the game lets you stick the door together without burning the pile automatically.
After clearing the drawings area, you should explore the house and give a can of paint (or something similar that lets you draw) to Kate (the quiet doll). Then you will be able to follow her in the basement.
When following Kate in the basement, activate the night vision to see which directions you should go to. If you fail, you’ll end up in the catacombs (that is a huge area that you’ll explore over and over later), but if you manage to catch up to Kate, unzip her mouth and she’ll be happy.
On the next playthrough, go see her in the hall of dolls and you’ll get the achievement. (The hallway behind the cardboard drawing of “Her” that gets unlocked upon finding all memories)
Location : Blur area (area past the sickness zone)
Hint : You can get the achievement after getting your vision back
Set another paper behind the right lens of the glasses pointing towards the pens, then use a pen to make another drawing, set the drawing in place of the one you used for calibrating your vision.
Make a third drawing this way and it will trigger the achievement.
Location : Area with the cars (Right before the early night vision area)
Hint : How can you manage to get your car stolen? If you think about it you’ll probably get the achievement.
After fixing the car, don’t run the engine and leave it there for a while, backtrack a little to the start and when you get back you might get your car stolen.
If you still didn’t get your car stolen, do the backtracking and come back several times until it happens.
When you lose your car, your only option left will be to admire the spider in the jar and think about your life choices.
Ella (Doll achievement)
Location : Sickness zone
Hint : There are 2 things you need to do :
1 : Get Ella (The sick doll) past the first area
2 : Smuggle an item in the biological waste to help cure Ella
Hint 2 : Be sure to have all the memories unlocked, otherwise this is going to be impossible
First, you need to understand the mechanic of the “Waste Box”, anything that you dispose in them (be it from the first night vision area or from the blur area), will end up in the biological waste.
Your first step will be to put the sleeping pill from the blur area in the waste box (You need to fix your vision before you can do that).
Then you need to get Ella past the first zone. To do this you need to take the nasty medicine. Clean it using the cleaning agent, then give it to Ella. She will open the way for you.
Once you reach the biological waste, get the sleeping pill from it then give it to Ella.
To solve her problem, you need to use the bone on her while she is sleeping.
WARNING : You should only use the bone on her after you get the “Sleeping Beauty” achievement otherwise you will be unable to get the “Sleeping Beauty achievement with this save file.
Once you fixed her arm, you should visit her in the hall of dolls to get the achievement. (This is located behind the cardboard drawing when you unlock all the memories)”
Location : Sewers + Back of the sewers
Hint : You should find a way to get past the monsters in the back of the sewers.
You should first find the laxatives in the Sewer Maze, then you should hide the laxatives in the half eaten teddy bear.
Now when you reach the back of the sewers, at the spot where the monster would normally get you. Zoom in with right click on the little hole in the right (use night vision if you can’t see the hole).
This should trigger the achievement.
Location : Blur area (area after the sickness zone)
Hint : You should not dispose of the Pill
You should regain your vision first, take the pills in your inventory, then trigger the “Mission Success” with the pills in your inventory.
The achievement should trigger.
A Child In The Window
Location : Paper world, right path
Hint : If you can’t find it I recommend using night vision
After tearing the Rain/Fog paper, you should head for the back alley on the right when exiting the building.
You can use night vision to spot the child near the top right of the screen.
Once you find it, zoom in on him to unlock the achievement.
Location : Kitchen (though there may be some place else also)
Hint : To get the achievement, I had to complete the Sarah doll first, but since this achievement got more clears than the doll, there may also be another way to trigger the sequence.
Hint 2 : After clearing Sarah, I set the mouse trap up with the canned corn and revisited the kitchen from “Scissors”/”Marker”/”Tape” area.
To trigger the sequence, the mouse trap in the power outage area should be set up with corn. This can be done if you use the rat poison on the crumbs at the entrance of kitchen (More detail on how to get rat poison on the Sarah doll achievement).
With the rat dead at kitchen, you’ll be able to open a can and set up the mouse trap.
Once in the cooking sequence, you need to log off to the main menu at the point where it turns hellish in a “Nope I don’t want to deal or see any of that” fashion.
(Keep in mind that there may be another place where you can also get the achievement since not everyone that cleared Disgusting Dish got the Sarah achievement)
Location : Paper world, right side
Hint : Find a way to go fast
Go to the main menu, in the advanced menu change the progression bar speed to instant.
Then go to the hot building in the Paper world.
With instant progression bar, you can directly get the tool from the medium sized box, open the wall, grab the key and open the door.
If you manage to complete the area without cooling down with the wet tissue, the closing window and closing door, you probably will get the achievement.
(Although I don’t know if there is a less cheesy way to do this, this is the one I used)
Feel free to reset your progression bar speed to normal if you prefer it that way afterwards.
Location : Sickness zone + Blur area
Hint : You need to figure out the biological waste mechanic, and find a way to get Ella past the first area.
This starts off the same as for the Ella achievement:
You get the Sleeping pill from the blur area to the waste box.
Then you can get Ella past the first zone by cleaning the nasty medicine with the cleaning agent and giving it to her.
Then you can get the Sleeping pill back from the biological waste and put Ella to sleep with it.
Now without fixing her arm, just trigger the “Mission Complete” with the Love memory.
You should get the achievement with that.
Sarah (Doll achievement)
Location : Kitchen + Sewers
Hint : You should get the rat poison if you want to get this achievement.
Hint 2 : You can only unlock the rat poison if you go to sewers using the entry way from the demon area.
You should first get to the demon area. This can be done using the 0666 code on the keypad or by going through the catacombs certain ways (I know 2 ways to get to the demon area from the catacombs).
If you are in an area with 3 doors you should go through the middle one twice.
Then you should compromise your firewall by filling the glass with the crying demon’s tears and pouring it on the hot doll, you can then go back to the crying demon and it will take you to the sewers.
On your way to the sewers, be sure to cover the hole with a manhole and to get a tool from the hole on the left.
In the sewers don’t use the shortcut if you have it unlocked, turn left when you get to the rubble, then enter the pipe by stripping out your spare parts.
Solve the pipe area and push the wet button before exiting.
This will open the 13A door in the sewers, with this get back to the sewers, go through the previously closed door and get the rat poison.
Now you can just enter kitchen via the “Scissors”/”Tape”/”Marker” area.
Chase the mouse, poison the crumbs, then you should have an easy time opening one of the canned food and giving it to Sarah (the starving doll).
You’ll get the achievement by visiting her in the hall of dolls.
WARNING : There is a special way to solve Sarah that will trigger another achievement, if you don’t want to redo another save file for her, you should see the “Full Belly” achievement before giving Sarah food.
Where are my keys?
Location : Paper world, right path
Hint : Guess it’s time to lose your keys
In the Lost and found area, when you get to pick up the “Lost and found” key, discard it by taking another item while holding it.
Get the key back from the box in front of the “Lost and found” store, then lose them again by taking an item.
Do this until the game gives up and just opens up the store for you.
Stuck In The Loop
Location : The “memory lane” area in the demon world
Hint : To make a loop, you’ll need to find a way back to the beginning without triggering the end.
You can access the “memory lane” area by entering the demon world, you can do this by entering 0666 on the keypad or by signing a contract in the catacombs.
When you arrive to the three doors, you can go through the middle door, then the right one.
Go through the area like you normally would and when you know the door on the left triggers the end (you can trigger it once and remember where it is for the next time), just skip it an go forward, this should repeat the loop.
Do this 3 or 4 times and you’ll get the achievement.
(the typo is present in the name of the achievement so it’s not my fault)
Location : Spring cleaning tape, (accessible from the house area)
Hint : You should find the bug spray before trying to access the tape
Hint 2 : You should use a similar mechanic as the one you can use at the bottom of the sewers when you get caught by the monsters.
First you need to get the bug spray (I don’t remember where exactly it was, but I think it was near the catacombs).
Now go to the house area (Code 6147 or Drawings shortcut), if you haven’t unlocked it yet see the “Kate” achievement resolution.
Go to the lower far right door, go in the hole, use the bug spray on the cobwebs on the left, then you should have reached the Spring cleaning tape.
In the tape you need to dispose of as much evidence as possible. Then before triggering the “Mission Complete”, go to Menu > Advanced > Inventory > Recycle Bin and remove all the data there. This should trigger the achievement.
Beautiful Shell (WIP)
I still don’t know where to get this. Any help is apreciated if you found it.
My guess is that you need to zoom in on a shell somewhere, maybe it’s in the Spring Cleaning tape, but I didn’t have any luck when I looked there.
Cleaning Someone’s Mess
Location : Memory lane area in the demon world.
Hint : Remember this trick you can do with your trash? that is used in a part of the sewers where the monster caught you.
You should first get to the “Memory lane” area of the demon world, instructions on that are detailed in the solution for the “Stuck In The Loop” achievement.
Once you reach this area, you go about clearing it the normal way.
Just right before triggering the ending, you should go to Menu > Advanced > Inventory > Recycle Bin and you should empty you track (Same thing as the “Eviedence Tampering” achievement).
You should get the achievement upon clearing your trash.
Pretty Mummy (WIP)
No idea where this is.
I think it may be in the catacombs, but I haven’t found anything yet.
Lost In The Darkness (WIP)
Don’t know how to get this.
I tried turning off my lights near the Abyss in the catacombs, but this didn’t do anything.
I don’t know where this is, I tried to find something in the “Face detection Error” zone but to no avail.
Elizabeth (Doll achievement)
Location : Car area + Hide and seek area + Photo album area (place where time got frozen)
Hint : If your camera blurs when trying to hide, you should wait longer before going out.
Hint 2 : If the film is overexposed when you look at it, how can you check the photos out without overexposing it to light.
You first need to unlock the hide and seek area (the hidden 4 number combination you are trying to piece out in the demon area, in the catacombs and in the notes), and you need to have found the “Stepfathers key” hidden in the place with frozen time.
In the hide and seek sequence hide in the closet (behind a locked door), wait for about 1 minute until things calm down outside the closet.
After exiting the closet, you need to deactivate your main light with “space” and activate your red light with “E”.
You can now develop the film inside the camera.
Next stop, the photo album. Get back to the place where time was frozen and the area should have changed now. Go straight to the photo album (or if you want to take a detour to check the area out that’s okay too). Inspect the album and take the photos.
When you restart, you’ll get a “Mission Failed” if you happen to take a big detour or if you inspect something out of place. Your goal is to reach the blind doll, either in the Car area or in the Blur area. Once you show her the photo evidence, she’ll be solved and your game will return to normal.
You’ll get her achievement by visiting her in the hall of dolls afterwards.
(I don’t know if the typo is intentionnal, but it’s really there in the steam achievement)
I don’t know where to get this, I tried searching the forest, but when I take the first two mushrooms, the third one will always be dry and you get eaten by dogs afterwards 🙁
I don’t know if it’s in the alternative forest path that leads to the tree. But no luck in finding any mushrooms there for me.
Location : Catacombs
Hint : You should search this in the area before the “Land of the dead”
After having unlocked the catacombs shortcut, go open the gate to the land of the dead without using the shortcut. Go grab the match in the path on the left in the shortcut, go back to the tomb where you found the key and burn it.
You should progress in the sequence until you see the star in the thumbnail, just zooming in it with right click should trigger the achievement.
Location : Kitchen + power shortage area
Hint : When solving Sarah, look for things other than giving the canned food directly to her.
Hint 2 : You should look into setting up the mouse trap without feeding Sarah.
Hint 3 : The thing that really helped me figuring this out was in the description of the achievement : you need to make a Tasty Fried Meat
After having unlocked the rat poison, poison the crumbs in the entrance of Kitchen and kill the mouse.
Now go directly to the power shortage area, solve the area, now you can open the can and set up the canned food in the mouse trap.
Restart and go back from either shortcut or Kitchen to the power shortage area.
Verify that there is a dead mouse in the mouse trap, then go solve the area until right before you plug yourself in to charge up.
You can grab the mouse at this moment, charge up, and the electric shock will turn the rat in your inventory into fried meat.
You can directly give Sarah the fried meat and this will solve her and give you the achievement.
I guess we can get this if we zoom in on the private parts of a doll?
I don’t know where to get this yet.
Good Hiding Place (WIP)
Don’t know where this is, maybe in the tape where the guy goes on a rampage, maybe in the hide and seek area, maybe in the place where you get “Connection Lost” at the end of the catacombs.
Full Of Energy (WIP)
I think we can trigger this if we manage to use the charger with full battery.
But I have not been successful at doing so for now.
Peeping Tom (WIP)
Don’t know where to get this either.
It looks like the place at the end of catacombs that ends with “Connection Lost”, But I couldn’t get anything by trying to zoom in random places of this last sequence.
Hint : You need to find 7 hidden treasures (that will look like coins) all around the areas.
Coin Locations :
Power shortage shortcut, right path.
Back of the Sewers.
Paper world, hot building.
Back of catacombs.
Inside the narrow pipe in the sewers.
Frozen time area after finding film. (More details on Elizabeth achievement’s solution)
+ 1 place I currently don’t remember (I’ll probably play the game again to find it)
Power shortage shortcut : After finding all the memories, enter the little hole you can inspect in the back then read the notes.
In the notes, you can zoom in a three digit number that gives you the page the treasure is at.
Now go back in the power shortage shortcut right path, inspect the big book, open the page and get the treasure.
Back of the Sewers : You first need to flush the key from the hot building in the Paper world down the toilet.
Then when you enter the back of the sewer, first take off the planks on the right door close to where the monster can get you.
Go back and repair the stairs with the planks, now head back and visit the room on the right. The key you flushed should be here, take it and use it on the door on the left upstairs, your treasure lies behind the door.
Hot building : You need to set the progression bar speed to instant, you’ll be able to inspect the cabinet and get the treasure in it (it first appears as an item, but it is saved in your advanced menu).
Back of catacombs : Pass the land of the dead after lighting up the candle, clear the area without using a stone heart on the heartless doll before breaking the back wall. When you can progress after opening the back wall with a heavy stone, grab another heavy stone before going in, now on the right, you can open the wall with your stone and get the treasure inside.
Pipe in sewers : Go the usual route to get to the pipe (through the demon entry way where you get the tool), then after stripping your parts get the tool you would use for clearing the rubble before heading into the pipe. You’ll be able to take down the wall on the left with the tools you carried over, and claim the treasure that is inside.
Frozen time area : When the area changes, there is some point where you can turn right, then go forward, then go right and finally go left. In the little open box, you’ll find your treasure.
(WIP : remember where I found the last treasure)
Anna (Doll achievement) (WIP)
No idea, isn’t this the doll we are supposed to save last?
This probably has to do with an alternate way do finish Elizabeth, but I haven’t experimented enough to know for sure.
Completely Lost (WIP)
Probably in the middle path of Paper world, don’t know if we need to find the right combination of directions or if we need to lose signal, to “fail” the area.
Tony And Zoey (Doll achievement) (WIP)
I think I made progress on Zoey (the sewer doll). And I think we need to find something better than a stone heart for Tony (I think it’s the heartless corpse in the back of the catacombs). I’ll post a more in depth solve when I get to the bottom of this.
Fresh Heart (WIP)
Maybe linked to an alternative way of solving Tony (the heartless corpse in the catacombs).
But other than that, I think I’m still missing some elements to solve this.
Probably linked to the demon area, I speculate that it would be linked to the closed door on the left in the “Firewall” puzzle area, we probably need to open it somehow.
Just An Old Tree (WIP)
This looks exactly like the final tree in the forest when you don’t take the mushroom. We probably need either a special item, or to get to this tree by another way.
All the achievements marked (WIP) are those that I’m still figuring out and the ones marked (Doll achievement) are the ones that I think are tied to the progression of the game (you probably need to solve all of the dolls to reach the end of the game).
Don’t hesitate to comment bellow if you want to point out something I missed or if you want more clarifications on certain achievements.
