Introduction:
>observer_ takes place in 2084 in Poland. A digital plague has swept the globe, killing thousands in its wake. In this post-war world, drugs, pest, and bionic upgrades ravage the few human beings left on the planet. As an Observer, Daniel Lazarski invades the dreams and memories of his targets in order to solve cases with the Dream Eater. As the building goes into lockdown with the potential threat of a virus, the situation, and your sanity, begin to quickly spin out of control when you discover the first in a line of murders. Can you survive the lockdown and solve the mystery at hand?

Abbreviated Walkthrough:
Option 1: You can play the game blind and enjoy the bizarre concept of it, unlocking what you can along the way.

Option 2: In this playthrough, you're going to want to do just about everything the game has to offer. You'll pick up every collectable, complete every side mission, and earn all miscellaneous achievements. None of these things stack over playthroughs, so if you miss anything you'll need to do it all over again in another playthrough.

Conclusion:
There are a lot of missables in the game, so be careful if you want to just do one playthrough or it will cost you a second. Everything you need is listed in the guide.

There are 19 achievements with a total of 1000 points

  • Earn 3000 points during a single trapware run.

    This achievement is missable!

    Near the end of the game, you will get to a point where you uncover Adam’s severed head.

    You have the option to mind hack the head or leave. You need to hack the head to get the chance to unlock this achievement. After hacking the head, you will get to a part with a TV and have to play three arcade-style minigames. The first and second game you can earn points on, but the last you cannot. The best game to get the points on is the first game. The principle of the game is simple enough: Tetris blocks will fall to the floor from above, and you need to avoid being hit by them long enough to rack up 3,000 points. You have three hearts, but that's one heart per minigame, and being hit takes half a heart. The simplest way to unlock the achievement is when the blocks start falling run around the outside of the room. It can be awkward at first, but you'll get used to it. Run around for a couple of minutes while being hit once max and you will eventually get to the 3,000 points. You may now let yourself die and play through the other two minigames however you'd like.

    Note: Losing all your hearts will not void “Unbreakable
