Guide to Collectibles (lots of spoilers, some tagged)
By buckysrevenge
A basic guide with hints on how to get the various collectibles (dingbots, masterful paintings, some of the Lore, and artifacts).

WARNING - There are A LOT of spoilers, I'd highly recommend that you only look through this once you've completed the game and just want to find all the collectibles afterward.

Thanks to jayne2520 for helping provide some screenshots for this guide!

You can actually get that lore without getting caught, you just need to barely escape :skullface:

Glad you figured it out! :Supraglad:

OH I"M AN IDIOT I UNDERSTAND NOW I just never got caught. I know where to go!

... So I found which one I'm missing... What the heck is a steam cat? And what stealth puzzles? Am I insane or did I somehow miss an entire section?

If you're on the Rain games discord, here's a link to a discussion we had that lists I think pretty much everything, you can use that to compare and find out which one you're missing. Let me know if you see which one you're missing and I might be able to point you in the right direction https://discord.com/channels/707917286773882911/1137522166468980866/1145529175395008522

I've got all the lore mentioned in your list and have completed the game, but the Loremaster achievement hasn't popped yet. I've been through every room and don't know what to do anymore. Do you know if there's any missable lore? I can put what I have in a list if that would help.

It's just a matter of timing to get dingbot at peak height, sorry to hear it's frustrating you
JesiMarie Oct 8, 2023 @ 2:28pm

Once you collect all the dingbots, you'll know 😉
