In this guide, I will describe all the achievements in the game High Strangeness in the order they were received. There are 22 achievements in total in this game.

You need to talk to:

- Shop assistant (who will later give us fireworks)
- Guy with the green hair (his house is to the right of the main character’s house)
- Two people in the Phantom Records store, which is located to the right of the fountain (first we need to talk to the person who is to the left, then with the girl standing behind the cash register, she will give us a disc)
How to get: During the dialogue with the city tramp, you need to press the “U” key several times to give him all the change he asks for. The city tramp is located near the shop above the main character’s house.
How to get: There is a shop to the left of the city tramp, in which there is a soda machine near the cash register (where a red cross hangs on the wall). You need to press the “U” key and the achievement is yours.

How to get: Fall in pits 10 times. You can get it at the first 8-bit level in the caves where the bats fly. The achievement may not fall out immediately, but after a minute or two. Apparently, this is a small bug of this game.

Put on the glasses!
How to get: Gain the Vision skull power. This achievement follows the plot when the Scout gives us Jacob’s Glasses. To get to this point, you must first find the golden key and Jacob’s Medicine. You can find the golden key in the cave, which is located below the location with the raven and two trees, right after the location with the bridge (you need to go down the stairs). Jacob’s Medicine is in a cave with two large skeletons. Jacob’s Glasses and Jacob’s Medicine are in the inventory in the “Items” section.

How to get: You can get it while completing the level in the laboratory, where you play as a cat. You need to leave the room through the ventilation, go past the room in which the main character of the game is sitting. After that, you need to go to the leftmost room, bypassing a small machine with a laser. In this room there are 5 cabinets with flasks and reagents, which can be broken by pressing the “U” key.

If you are caught by lasers, restart the level (click “Load Game” and select the desired save).
