Fractured Minds - How to Stop the Achievements from Locking Themselves

How to make sure you actually get to keep the achievements you earn in Fractured Minds.

How to Stop the Achievements from Locking Themselves (Fractured Minds)



I played through the game twice and ended up with 0/9 achievements. On my third try I now have 9/9 safely and comfortably using the method starting at Step 2.

Step 1. First time playing? Try to 100% the game on your first go around, when you recieve the last achievement, open the Steam Overlay using shift + tab and confirm you have 9/9, then Alt + F4 the game and uninstall it. You lose the achievements when you either open the game again, or it's when you start a new run, I'm not sure and not willing to test and have to wait for the Monster to show up for another 10 minutes.

Step 2. Second time or more? Only have 0 or half of the achievements after completing the game once? From the menu, level select onto Level 4, wait for the Monster, complete the game, remembering to enter the red lights 3 times. Select "Main Menu" from the end screen, start a new game, remember to get the wrong keys, complete the 3 levels you missed, open the Steam Overlay using shift + tab and confirm you have 9/9, then Alt + F4 the game and uninstall it.

Note: None of these problems occurred on my PS4 playthrough, perhaps this is supposed to be an intentional feature to frustrate you or extend the game's short playthrough. I believe Steam is the only platform which has achievements that can be relocked after earning them.
