Gray Matter by Jane Jensen is a point-and-click adventure brought to the Xbox 360 which requires a lot of examining objects, problem solving, and dialogue mixed in with a mysterious storyline. What it also is, is a fun, at points challenging game with a slightly linear gameplay, but plenty of dialogue and slight jokes as rewards for exploring. Is it difficult? No. Is it fun? Yes? Are 1000 points achievable? Oh yes.

The majority of the achievements come from completing “puzzle sets” which in real terms means doing a series of steps to advance the game play. The easiest example is the “tutorial” puzzle at the very start where you have to find Sam’s pet rabbit to put in its cage, then feed it with a carrot from Sam’s backpack and then give it water first by taking the water bottle from the backpack, and then filling it up with water from a pitcher in the room. Then you “equip” the items one by one and select the rabbit to give them to it. Doing all of these will get you 640G plus 40G for completing the game normally.


There are a couple of non-story related achievements that are potentially missable, including one for finding all the “bonus points” in the game, and Fast Play for a speed run of completing the game in under 5 hours. However there is a great guide online HERE (http://guides.gamepressure.com/graymatter/) that covers the entire game, including all the points, and if you follow it through then you’ll get all of them apart from the speed run and the Chatty Mouth achievement. For that one, examine EVERYTHING that you can, and examine it again after an event happens (at the game start, examine the water pitcher before giving the rabbit water, and then after for two different things said. This gives you two items).

The missable achievements are Fast Play, Chatty Mouth, A Small Act of Kindness, He can be nice too, Divided and Conquered, The Beast Within so make sure you read the achievement descriptions for them.

1st Playthrough

Take your time, enjoy the game and explore around and you will find some pretty cool stuff. It is pretty much impossible to get the speed run achievement done in your first playthrough so just enjoy your first run and you should end up with a cool 950:gsicon:

2nd Playthrough

This is your speed run. Now you know the game and what to do, rush through the main storyline, ignoring all bonus points and unneeded items to beat the game within five hours. The previous game experience will of course help, and you can check your time progress by saving the game and seeing how long you have left. You will unlock Fast Play to complete your 1000g

Conclusion

A really underrated game and a fun 1000, but be careful when doing your speed run as it is easy to go over the 5 hour limit!

Fast Play – 50http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Finish the game in under 5 hours

Missable. As it says, finish the game in under five hours. Should be the last achievement you get, on the second play through. Once you’ve done the game once and know what to do & where to go, do it again without going for bonus points or examining unneeded objects. Also, when you get cut scene videos hit Start and select "skip video" to save time. You can check how much time you have left by saving your game to see how much you’ve used up. The achievement pops when you reach the main menus AFTER the final cut scene video AFTER the unskippable credits. Therefore, try and make sure you have some time in hand before finishing the last part prior to the credits. Good luck!

Chatty chatty mouth – 50http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Played 1000 dialogs

Missable. In Gray Matter, a “dialog” is any text said by a character that gets noted down in either Sam’s notebook or Dr. Styles’ diary. So this can come from conversations with characters, or either playable character’s thoughts on items etc when examined. There, examine everything and anything possible in the game. Pressing select will display “hotpoints” i.e. objects that can be interacted with, examined, or locations to other places. Many objects will produce more than 1 dialogue either after immediately viewing or after something happens in relation to it or the story. Examine characters after talking to them, objects after use, objects in your inventory after collecting them, and look at everything when you’ve “zoomed in” on them. It will take a while to get over 1000 dialogues, therefore it’s not a good idea to go for this achievement and Fast Play in the same playthrough. The time when the achievement will pop will differ depending on how much you examine etc. For me it popped during Chapter 6 as I was completing the second half of C Railer Swool, so by following the walkthrough posted above and this advice, you’ll get it either here or later in Chapter 7. Then feel good about not having to spend so much time looking at everything in the game, unless you like listening to Sam’s voice I guess.

A Small Act of Kindness – 20http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Put all wild flowers into vases

Missable. You can “buy” wildflowers from the market seller stall in Oxford City Centre in Chapter 2, and there are two vases to put the flowers into. Doing this achievement contributes “bonus points” towards The Beast Within achievement.
1. “Vase” in Sam’s bedroom at home, on the table with the water pitcher.
2. Vase in Main Lab in cellar at home, on desk next to picture of Styles’ wife.

He can be nice too – 25http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Speak with Mrs. Dalton about the bike

Missable. Chapter 6. This was set up during the “That Piece of Junk” set earlier in the game. After investigating the house’s tower, go to the garage and use Sam’s bike. Then go to the kitchen and talk to Mrs. Dalton about The Bike. This will get you some bonus points, therefore is not required for a story puzzle set therefore missable. Achievement will pop after that conversation is over.

Divided and Conquered – 25http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Won the “Divide and Conquer” game without losing any hand
Missable. Chapter 4. You’ll use the “Divide and Conquer” trick on the Proctor on floor 2 of St Edmund’s Hall. In this game, the idea is to keep the “prediction” card selected at the start on the table so it’s the last one. The key to winning is making sure who goes first according to how many cards on the table. If an even number (6, 8, 10 etc) the Proctor goes first, otherwise Sam. On Sam’s turn, select any 2 cards but the predicted card, and on the Proctor’s turn choose any card except the predicted card if it’s been picked out. You’ll lose a hand if the predicted card is eliminated, so win three games straight without loss and the achievement will pop.

You should make money out of it – 25http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Fully Succeeded the Ball and Cup trick

Story related. Chapter 6. You’ll play the Ball and Cup trick on the handyman on floor 3 on St. Edmund Hall, and to get this you need to do the trick perfectly. The trick is that the handyman can’t move the ball that has the cup in on his first move. So if he moves 1 and 3, the ball is in cup 2, so follow that cup’s movements and swaps to see where the ball is now. This one is kind of weird; on my first play I got it first time using this method, but during the second it took 3 times before it worked. Thankfully you don't have to get it first time, mistakes are allowed. All that matters is that you do the trick correctly the one time needed to continue the story.

Malkaiah of the forums had this method: "Looking at the three cups there is a black mark on Position 1. Remember this for a little later. The first movement is silent remember so you will never know which cup the ball starts under. However, assume the ball is under cup 1 (with the mark on it), follow the movements as the man speaks and then look at the three cups. If the cup with a mark on it is in the position you've measured the ball to be then pick it and you'll get it. Otherwise you'll need to deduce which of the two remaining cups is the one with the ball under. Which is easily enough done if you read the details in the magician handbook. It had me a little stumped at first but after re-reading the instructions in the game it worked first time."

Regardless of what method you choose and how you get it, the achievement will pop when you select the cup with the ball and come out of the game.

The Beast Within – 100http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png

Missable. Throughout the game there are also bonus points which are awarded for doing actions that are not directly related to a Puzzle Set.
