Dark Boy achievement unlocked
This feeling is so satisfying. I finally did it! I cleared The Depths without taking any damage and I also did it without The Bible, We Need to Go Deeper!, The Compass or the Emperor card. Only good item was Mom's Knife from the Caves.

My heart was pumping when I got to the room before Mom that had four screaming angels shooting at four different directions at me. Somehow I dodged them and proceeded to Mom's room. I got her health down to <50% very quickly but then it got really hard. Her health was stuck at like 5% hp and she spawned so many mobs and her foot didn't come down in ages. I thought the flying red head monster would hit me since it exploded right next to me. While it died she spawned her hand on top of the screen that was literally touching my toes but it didn't hit me either. Her eye spawned and I proceeded to throw Mom's Knife at it and soon after "Dark Boy" unlocked popped on my screen. Everything was so unbelievable close, I'm just amazed I didn't get hit there.

One of the best moments in my gaming history for sure.

Congrats man! I got the same feeling when finally achieving dark boy. That ♥♥♥♥ is next to impossible, and believe or not it was easier to get mama's boy (got mama's boy first and then dark boy) or maybe it was just an amazingly lucky run :P

Thanks, I got Mama's Boy before this as well. I've had really close Dark Boy attempts with The Bible before but always screwed up before Mom's room. I'm at 94/97 secrets now and I'm not sure what I'm missing. I've killed every boss with every character, done all the challenges, assembled Guppy but I still need to collect few Challenge Run items into my Collection. I think I'm missing something else though since there are 3 secrets left.

I don't think you need to find every item to get platinum god. I got it without mom's contacts
in my collection. Check your secrets for cain's eye, samson's lock, eve's bird foot, the left hand. There's a bug for those four.

Oh god I can't find Cain's Eye or The Left Hand in my Secrets list even though I unlocked them before.

Don't worry. I posted a *fix* for this yesterday http://steamcommunity.com/app/113200/discussions/0/846944052850313419/
Let me know if you have any questions ;)

You're still missing one more secret though after getting platinum god you should have 98/97

Maybe you're missing conquest secret (lost horseman i think)?

Hmm isn't Golden God included in it? Like if I now have 94/97, get those Cains Eye and The Left Hand unlocked and Golden God it's 97/97, with Platinum God it'd be 98/97.
aggour Feb 7, 2013 @ 8:02am 
Yeah that's it. I just checked the wiki and it says that you get golden god by collecting 197/198 items if you got lump of coal once. You can use sol editor to regain cain's eye+left hand and keep a backup of so.sol

I just got The Left Hand again and now it seems to be there. I hope it won't disappear in the near future. Trying to do a Cain Chest run to get the Cains Eye achievement. Thanks again for helping me. I hope to see a new Platinum God user soon ;)

I had the same problem with secrets disappearing.

What u can do is right after u get a new secret ,close the game and save the >serial.txt< and the >myFile.txt< from the isaac steam folder and the >so.sol< file from "User/AppData/Roaming/Macromedia/Flash Player/#SharedObjects/xxxxxxxx/localhost"

When u start the game and the secret is gone just copy the files back

Backed up my save just in case, thanks for the tip.

np - i only have darkboy left and rly hope ll get it before it drives me crazy

Did u play with issac?
I cant decide who is the best char for a darkboy run:isaac with D9, Judas or Dr. Fetus challenge

Nice! I actually just got Dark Boy myself on my most OP run ever.
ne280on Feb 7, 2013 @ 12:54pm 
I ♥♥♥♥ myself when I got Dark Boy. But I diarreahed when I got mama's boy.
Capnmaf Feb 7, 2013 @ 2:12pm 
Nice work! I actually had the same experience as well, mainly just using Mom's Knife to get Dark Boy. I seriously thought it was all going to be ruined when I saw mom's shadow, and being under that causes explosive damage when u kill her. Awesomely, I dodged just barely and I got it.

I think my best experience with this game by far is the feeling I just got today, when I beat The Purist. Just need to find Daddy Long Legs now.

@manbearp1g - I would say the D6 will give you the best advantage as you can choose your builds.
