Havsala Into the Soul Palace Walkthrough with Achievement Guide

In order to obtain all the achievements, you will need to do 2 playthroughs, each of them awarding two mutually exclusive achievements.
One of these playthroughs has to be hint-free, in the other one you will need to use at least 5 hints.
One of these playthroughs requires you to answer all the quiz questions correctly, in the other one you will need to fail them all.
One of these playthroughs must be done in one go.

This guide aims to obtain all possible achievements in the first playthrough (including playing it without hints and answering all the quiz questions correctly), and use the second playthrough as a “clean-up” run for the missing ones.
