100% Achievement Guide
Hello. Since this game doesn't offer any manual saves it can get tricky to get 100% achievements in one go. Also since there isn't any way to skip dialogue it starts getting kinda annoying also if you miss one.


This guide contains many spoilers.

How to manual save

You can manual save by going to C:\Users\[yourusername]\AppData\LocalLow\Microids\Syberia3

There is a file and a folder. The file is your save file. When you enter a room sometimes it autosaves. You must copy this file elsewhere since the game overwrites this file constantly. To reload you need to replace the file you saved and restart the game. Thanks Microids

Missable achievements
These achievements can be missed (or not)

Time to collect your thoughts: Listen to Kate's thoughts during a conversation

One flew over the nut-job's nest: During the interview don't lie and say only half truth

You call that cheating...?: Find 15 points on interest in items in your inventory. Keep inspecting items and finding clickable points

Friends for life: Become friends with two of the clinics old hands

  • Speak with the two guys playing chess in the ward and get them to help you with the key after you find out it doesn't work

A little tenderness, maybe...?: Tell one of your traveling companions how much you like them three times.

  • This is an achievement that spans all game. The goal is to pet a certain ostrich three times throughout the game. First time you can pet it when you arrive in the big hut with the market, second time when you return to the hut at night after the Yukols packed the goods and third time late in game at the Yukol camp

The scriptwriter's nightmare: While exploring, perform 5 optional actions that influence your progress.

  • Another game wide achievement. You need to explore and know things before needing them. Stuff like reading the Captains diary before trying to convince him, or speaking to Kurk about bribing the watchman before talking to the watchman. I received this achievement during the bridge crossing. You need to do 5 of these action.

    1. Read captains diary before speaking to Steiner
    2. Read captains diary before trying to convince him
    3. Look at the automaton statue near the mayor before going to Steiner
    4. Restore the electricity to the park before being asked to

    6. Lower the water wheel before before talking to the watchman.
    7. Read emails on dr. Olga's computer before speaking with the detective.
    8. Unplug the carts blocking the railway before speaking to Oscar.

The Valsembor horror: Listen to two people tell you the story of a local legend.

  • You need to find 2 people that tell you about the local legend.
    1. In the Youkal Camp, near the squid statue
    2. Near the lighthouse in Valsembor

Grumpy old...: Get rebuffed three times by the same character.

Valsemborgate: Find out about the region's dark past.

  • Read Obo's journal before going to Steiner. You can find the journal at the top level of the ship, on a table

Crime and punishment: On the first try, you succeeded in convincing a lost soul to seek redemption by helping you.

  • Convince Obo on the first try. First conversation [Hedge], [Push], [Argue] doesn't count, only the one after him sobering up. Make sure to read his diary located on top level of the ship before. Order is [Coax]>Valsembor needs you>I offer redemption (read the logbook first)

Martingale: During a discussion, use an irrefutable argument that you obtained by exploring.

  • During your conversation with Captain Obo, you chose "I offer redemption". You need to read his diary first, located on the top level of the ship, on a table.

A word to the wise…: When solving a puzzle, find what's needed the first time around.

  • During the coal puzzle, before using the cart, take the pipe near the box and start hitting all coal chutes until you find the full one (it will sound different)

Master locksmith: When solving a puzzle, make a perfect duplicate on the first try.

  • When you duplicate the ship key, set the machine to 200%. Key is 50%, so 200% = 100% key

Lobbyist: Get your old reflexes back to make an elected official give in.

  • Convince the mayor I'm sorry to bother you> Leave with the yukols> Think of the elections

Brave… in good time!: Receive an elected official's moral support.

  • Not sure you can miss this. The mayor will approach you at night on your way to funicular, granting the achievement. Make sure you take the path that goes by the mayor house

Cassandra: Prove to the clinic staff that you're right despite everything.

  • Again, not sure you can miss this either. After you see Olga in her office the first time plotting against you with the Colonel, speak with Dr. Zamiatine. He will not believe your accusations. . During the infiltration part in the clinic, after you distract the soldiers, go to Zamiatine office.

Tables turned: Admit you like it…

  • After you return to the Yukol camp at night, look through the cabin's window. Suspected that you need to use "deception" first time meeting him. (thx annakaisa.huotari)

Ice breaker: When solving a puzzle, start the mechanism you're asked to without stalling a single time.

  • This one is a bit tricky. You need to start the icebreaker without stalling the engine. Short version is you need to go to gear 1, pull lever. The icebreaker will start breaking. Then switch to gear 3, icebreaker will accelerate and then quickly switch to 2. Do not let go of the click while you change gears.

This video might help you.

I am legend: See beneath the surface to convince a survivor to help you.

  • Convince the Survivor from Baranour, Katerina Make sure to read the photo album before leaving, then just be nice and impress her. Pardon>Introduce yourself>Talk about photo album

Available brainwidth: You've preserved an ally's cultural integrity…

  • Again, not sure you can miss this either. After you go back to the metro in search for clothes, during your way to the surface you will meet Kurk. Speak to him

Tripping: Receive an old friend's congratulations by helping him before he asks you to.

  • Restore power to the park before being asked to. Connect the ship to the power lines and start the engines before speaking to Oscar while he sits on the driver seat.

Ironic, ain't it?: Swap roles

  • After you get to play with Oscar, immediately try to return to Kate (press the red button a couple of times until the achievement pops (thx zlozt)

Raiders of the lost temple: When trying to solve a puzzle, open the doors of a ruin with fewer than 20 manipulations.

  • Solve the RGB beam puzzle in less that 20 moves. Here's the solution

Anything goes: You set off a strange migratory mechanism without being asked to do a thing…

  • Before you speak with the watcher for the first time, go down the ladders near the river 2 times and pull the lever, lowering the water wheel. When you speak with the watcher the achievement pops

Mobile communication: When solving a puzzle, you used a strange machine without putting out the fire you lit beforehand.

  • Just as the name says, use the machine without putting out the fire. To make sure the fire stays lit, don't block the smoke. Better yet, set the machine first then the last thing you do is light the fire.

Hi, are the missable achievements more or less in the games chronological order?
monaphone Apr 4 @ 4:59pm 
i got the ironic achievement on my own.
monaphone Mar 1 @ 3:07pm 
I can't get the ironic achievement. The walkthru says to push the red button several times. What red button?

"20,000 leagues under the lake" is either bugged for me or not a story achievement. .
Didn't pop up and is listed under "secret" achievements. Thus I'm rather sure, that it's not a story line auto-achievement. I did the under water sequence twice. Finished the game as well in between these two attempts. It's the last one missing, so I hope someone can shine a light on this one?

The "O' spirits, are you there?" is story releated achievement and pops when Kate Walker enters the temple.

I know, I made that comment :)

Find on PS forum next info about O, spirits:
There is a bug with this trophy. This should be a story related trophy during your spirit vision in the temple.
PV Apr 25, 2017 @ 8:56pm 
to be honest I highly suspect the O spirits, are you there? is a story-related achievement.
