Drowning – 100% Full Achievement Guide

A guide for getting every achievement in Drowning.

How to Obtain All Achievements

Foreword

Quick tip: There is a sprint button in the game that makes you move slightly faster than the normal walking speed. The button should be Shift on your keyboard, A on an Xbox controller, or X on a Playstation controller.

Also, when reading around online you might read that there was an update to the game that lets you skip entire levels just by pausing and selecting “Skip Scene”. This update never came to the Steam version of the game, so you have to walk through each level manually, sometimes several times to complete this game’s achievements.

Achievements (Ordered by When They Become Available)

New Game

  • Start a new game for the first time

All you need to do to acquire this achievement is start up the game, and click “New Game” on the main menu.

Time To Cool Off

  • Try and swim in the pond in year 8

After starting a new game, you will spawn after seeing the text “Year 8”. To get this achievement just turn around and walk towards the lake that was behind you when you spawned.

Gift Box

  • Find the secret gift box

For this achievement you will need to keep walking throughout the first level of the game until you see the text “I hardly recongnised you were there”.

After seeing that text, you will want to turn right and go towards the nearest tree. You will see a gift next to it. Simply walk up to the gift to get the achievement.

Snowman

  • Find the secret snowman

This achievement is obtained in the second level of the game.

After spawning into the second level, you’ll want to walk until you see the text “But I was glad you were gone”.

After seeing that message, you’ll want to turn left and look behind the nearest tree to find a snowman. Walk up to and touch the snowman to get the achievement.

Candle

  • Find the secret candle

This achievement takes place in the third level of the game.

After you have started the third level, you’ll want to turn left and face the mountain (you should also barely be able to see a dirt path on the ground in the same direction). Walk in this direction.

After a short distance of walking, you will be able to see a candle in the middle of the dirt path you are now on. Walk up to it to get this achievement.

Secret Ending 1

  • Finish the first secret ending

After this achievement, you will be forced to start a new game and walk through the entire game again up to your next achievement.

Refer to Candle for how to get to the candle

From the candle that you obtained for the Candle achievement, you’ll want to continue walking down the dirt path you walked down to find it. You will be brought to a new location.

Once you reach this new location, you’ll want to walk until you reach a waterfall. Once you’ve reach the waterfall, the game will end and you’ll get this achievement.

Don’t Fall Off!

  • Try to fall off the bridge 10 times in year 11

This achievement is gotten on the fourth level of the game.

After spawning on the wooden bridge, go to the far left or far right of the bridge and walk as if you were going to walk off the edge of the bridge. Move forward and backward repeatedly, while facing the edge of the bridge still, until the achievement pops.

Rock Climber

  • Try to climb the large rock at the beginning of year 12

This achievement is on the fifth level of the game.

You will spawn into the fifth level, which is a very dark environment. After spawning, just turn around like you did for Time To Cool Off and walk into the wall behind where you spawned.

Candy

  • Find the secret candy

This achievement takes place on the fifth level of the game.

After either spawning in, or getting Rock Climber, you will want to walk forward through the level until you see the words “I’m nearly out of breath”.

After those words appear, turn left, and you will be able to find the candy in the grass.

Christmas Tree

  • Find the secret ball on the Christmas tree

This achievement appears in section 2 of the fifth level.

You will know you’ve reach section 2 of the fifth level when you are brought to a more forested area without a year transition. After spawning, continue to walk until you see “Because there’s nothing left for me in this world”.

Turn left once you see those words and there will be a Christmas ornament hanging from a nearby tree. Walk up to it for the achievement.

Mountain Goat

  • Try to climb the hill in the dark forest

This achievement takes place on the second section of the fifth level.

After either spawning, or getting Christmas Tree, continue forward until you see a cabin. Once you see the cabin, turn right and attempt to walk towards the hill to your right. Once you are stopped by the invisible wall, this achievement should be given to you.

Secret Ending 2

  • Finish the second secret ending

After this achievement, you will be forced to start a new game and walk through the entire game again up to your next achievement.

Refer to Mountain Goat for how to get to the cabin

After finding the cabin, you will want to walk around it instead of walking inside it. This will bring you to another area.

Once you’re in the new area, walk forward until you find some large stones. Once you reach the large stones, the game will end, and you will be granted this achievement.

Sock

  • Find the secret sock

This will take place in the sixth and final level of the game.

After spawning in to the final level, continue forward until the words “You did this to me” appear.

After those words are visible, turn left, and the sock will be hiding behind the grass, under the nearest street lamp. Touch it to get the achievement.

Finish The Game

  • Finish the game’s main ending

While in the sixth and final level, you will come upon a portal. Go into the portal and you will get this achievement.

Do not click on “New Game” on the main menu if you plan on getting Secret Ending 3

Secret Ending 3

  • Finish the third secret ending

Refer to Finish The Game for how to reach the portal

If you are doing this after Finish The Game, then after the credits are done, and you are back on the main menu, click on “Continue”. You will be brought back to the final level. When you reach the portal, you will be able to go around it on the right side instead of going through it. After going around it, continue forward and you will be brought to a new area.

After reaching the new area, just walk to the end where there is a campfire with other people sitting down and the game will end and you will get this achievement.

All Endings Complete

  • Find and complete all the game endings

Refer to Secret Ending 1, Secret Ending 2, Finish The Game, and Secret Ending 3
