This is a guide for getting all of the achievements in the game Only If. I have also made a video guide here to go along with this or as a standalone resource if that is more helpful.
This is a guide for getting all of the achievements in the game Only If. I have also made a video guide. Before we begin, there are two things to keep in mind while going through this in order to reduce the amount of time it takes you.
- You must exit the game, verify your game cache, and reopen it after getting an achievement. This game is heavily bugged to the point of breaking the ability to get achievements after you’ve gotten one and, in some cases, (which we’ll go over) breaking that ability before you’ve even gotten one. Aside from after getting an achievement a good rule of thumb for this game is to exit and verify if you do the action that should give an achievement and it doesn’t pop up.
- You don’t have to play through the levels to start using save codes. If you don’t care about the story you can just press continue, enter in a save code, and then get whichever achievement you’re currently on.
With that out of the way let’s start going through how to get each achievement.
Move Along, Pervert...
This one is very simple and easy. To get this achievement you'll need to walk up to the giant anime painting in the first room. You'll need to stand there staring at it and eventually it will pop the achievement up. For me, it took about 45 seconds of standing.
You Have No Idea What You're Doing, Do You?
To get this achievement you literally will just have to spam the "e" key a bunch of times. You can do it on any level, and it doesn't have to be on anything in particular.
You're Not Santa, Get Out
Save Code: parlor
To get this achievement you'll need to be on the level parlor. Crouch down and enter the fireplace. You may have to move around a bit while inside. It should only take a few seconds to pop the achievement up.
Save Code: house
To get this achievement you'll need to be on the level house. Go down to the basement to find a room with a framed quote and a lever all surrounded by candles. Pull the lever up and down again and again until the achievement pops. It shouldn’t take more than around 20 or 25 pulls. If you hit 30 you’ve probably gone past it already and need to verify your game cache.
Was Any Of That Real?
Save Code: basementpart2
To get this achievement you'll need to be on the level basementpart2. When you spawn you’ll need to grab the lever off of the table under the window.
Go through the lever activated door and up to the timed gate. Pull the lever on the other side of it and run up the stairs to jump through the other timed gate. In this room you’ll see the console which needs the lever attached.
Pull the lever exactly 5 times and then run through the hall to the right. Once through there activate the cog on the wall and run up the stairs and keep running. In the next “level” follow the blue orb to the door and the achievement should pop up.
Save Code: whitepawn
To get this achievement you’ll need to be on the level whitepawn. You’ll need to talk to Vinny (the radio) and when he asks about something sweet start typing “honey” over and over until your character says honey. By that point the achievement should pop up.
Save Code: immensity
To get this achievement you’ll need to be on the level immensity. You’ll need to follow the obvious starting path jumping up one platform at a time until the distance gets a bit too high. You’ll turn to the left and look down to the next platform you need to jump to. After that one you’ll need to jump down to the one much further down. Once you shoot the vase on that platform look up and to the left to see the giant vase falling. Shoot it as it comes down and the achievement will pop. The video guide will definitely help with this one. Also, if you fall or have to restart the level for any reason it will break the achievement, and you will need to exit and verify your game cache.
Save Code: whitepawn
To get this achievement you’ll need to be on the level whitepawn. You’ll need to jump onto the desk and then on top of the bookshelf where there was a key on a previous level.
Turn around and there will be a large piece of concept art in the sky. Look at it for a few seconds and the achievement will pop up.
Save Code: whatithinkofyou
To get this achievement you’ll need to be on the level whatithinkofyou. Once you land walk straight ahead until you see a trash can.
Reach in to grab a key and then turn around and go all the way to the other side where there will be a vase on its side. Shoot the vase once and go through the door to pop up the achievement.
Save Code: whatithinkofyou
To get this achievement all you need to do is complete the level whatithinkofyou.
