Thanks to EXM9000 for the 100% text walkthrough, Averse for the 100% video walkthrough and Aliosghof for the list of people to talk to.
Syberia for the Xbox Live Arcade was released in December 2014. It was originally released on the PC in 2002. It is a point-and-click adventure and plays similar to the old 1990’s Lucasarts games. Solving puzzles, gathering information and finding items to progress the story are key factors in this game. You cannot die and make any mistakes, so you are free to explore each location in full. However, once you move onto the next location, the previous area becomes inaccessible, so be sure you’ve found everything and talked to everyone before moving on.
In this game you take on the role of Kate Walker, a young lawyer from New York who has been assigned to travel to Europe to mediate the purchase of Voralberg Manufacturing, a mechanical toy and automaton factory in the small village of Valadilene in the French Alps. You learn early on that the owner of the factory, Anna Voralberg, has passed away and her younger brother and heir, Hans, has been missing for many years. You will embark on a journey that will take you to remote locations and associate with unique characters in your quest to find the obscure inventor in hopes of completing your assignment.
To ensure all achievements are unlocked in one playthrough, it is recommended that you follow EXM9000’s text walkthrough or Averse’s video walkthrough playlist so you don’t miss a thing. The game can be completed in about 4-5 hours regardless of which walkthrough you choose, so start the game on the 'Difficult' mode, skip all the dialogue and always run instead of walk (hold down ).
Note: If you wish to take your time, read all the dialogue, explore the environment and enjoy all the game has to offer, this will likely take you more than 6 hours and you will miss unlocking the "Old School" achievement. If this happens, a second playthrough will be required.
Mop Up & 100%:
If you followed one or both of the walkthroughs, this step is unnecessary, but if you missed any achievement, unfortunately you will have the play the entire game again up until the achievement(s) unlock. Please refer to the text walkthrough or video walkthrough for more information.
Whether you used a walkthrough or not, I hope you enjoyed this game. Although it isn’t a remaster, this is still a very entertaining and enjoyable game with a wonderful story and interesting characters. Congratulations on another 1000!
