Guide for Volume – Text collectibles

Need help keeping track of those elusive text collectibles?


The problem with the text collectibles in Volume is that there’s no easy way of tracking which ones nor how many you have picked up so if you miss one, you may not notice it at all. The game only counts those collectibles covertly with no in-game nor outside trackers visible to the player. 
This guide aims to rectify that problem by providing an easy to follow list of how many text collectibles are in each of the game’s core levels, keeping a running tally and indicating when exactly each of the 4 achievements tied to those text collectibles should unlock; or in other words, how many collectibles in total you need to pick up for the a*sociated achievement to pop. 
The aforementioned achievements unlock after collecting a predetermined number of text collectibles, in 25% increments all the way up to 100%. 
To help you stay on top of the hunt, follow the lists provided below, divided into 4 sections, each corresponding to the a*sociated achievement. 
Alternatively, you’re more than welcome to take advantage of the Excel spreadsheet with the interactive checklist that I compiled for your achievement-hunting pleasure 🙂

I a*sure you we’re open… <clears his throat>, I mean, that there’s no nasty stuff embedded in the file but feel free to scan it with your antivirus software before opening it anyway, just to be safe. 

How to find and pick up the collectibles?

Volume - Text collectibles - How to find and pick up the collectibles? 
I could’ve posted screenshots here with the exact locations of each and every text collectible but come on, what would be the fun in that? 😉 
But fear not, dear lore seeker: the text collectibles may be hard to keep track of but are rather easy to find thanks to the very clear visual identification of the game and conveniently marked throughout the levels with the icon that you see on the left. 
For the purposes of further demonstration, here’s a handy screenshot for you from the very first level of the game:

How about that? The game actually teaches you about the text collectibles by placing it practically in your way right at its very beginning. Convenient, eh? 
When you find one of those hardly elusive text collectibles you need to keep your eyes on the prize, approach it slowly but steadily so as not to startle the prey and then interact with it by pressing the Spacebar on your keyboard, all in order for it to count towards the achievements. Also, just to be safe, as soon as you stop interacting with it, make sure to save your progress at the earliest opportunity by either hitting the nearest checkpoint, if there is one on the level you’re playing, or completing the stage after picking the collectible up without dying or resetting the level. 
Happy hunting!

If you find any shortcomings with the guide or the spreadsheet, leave a comment and I’ll be gracious enough to admit that I’m not infallible and do my penance by correcting the error of my ways as soon as possible before anyone else notices I’m not an omniscient being I’d like to think I am 😉
