Missable achievements: Finders Keepers, Quiet Down Back There!, I May Have Overcommitted and Are You A Wizard?. It is impossible to get all the achievements in one playthrough, mainly because of the speedrun, which is very difficult and requires at least 1 separate playthrough. You can get all the other achievements in one playthrough, but it is not recommended because Quiet Down Back There! doesn’t allow you to follow the story progression naturally (or at all). My advice is to not care about achievements in your first playthrough, just complete every level and reunite all animals, for the story. Then you will need multiple tries for the speedrun, and, if you’re still up for it, another careful playthrough for I May Have Overcommitted, which shouldn’t take much longer than a speedrun.

Controller makes the game much easier, because it has directional controls (in addition to rotational), which are simply not available for keyboard for some reason.

Interstellar Interstellar
Terraform 100 planets

All of these terraform achievements are pretty easy to grind. You can even terraform the same planet to different kinds over and over in order to get the count up for all of the other achievements that require you to terraform 10 planets to a particular type. Getting the achievement for terraforming 100 planets will require some extra griding as you only need to terraform 60 planets to get all of the other related achievements.

I'm Fabulous I’m Fabulous
Reach max hair length

Hair length is kept between levels, so you’ll just get this eventually

Quiet Down Back There! Quiet Down Back There!
Carry all 14 animal spirits at once

See “I May Have Overcommitted” for more information.

Finders Keepers Finders Keepers
Carry all 7 planet pieces at once

See “I May Have Overcommitted” for more information.

I May Have Overcommitted I May Have Overcommitted
Carry all animal spirits and planet pieces at once

You need to visit every guardian to get their planet pieces, and carry all 14 animal spirits without reuniting them.
If you visit the black hole, you fail. If you reunite even one animal spirit with its skeleton, you fail.
My advice is to try to never pick up any animal spirits to prevent accidents, until the very end, when you have all the planet pieces.
A special remark is needed for the first animal spirit that you see in the game. It is possible, and required, to avoid picking it up as well; the star is available right away, just very far on top.
These achievements will be awarded upon exiting a level.

What is Art? What is Art?
Terraform the biggest planet in the game

Terraform the planet in Spring Tides (3rd branch, with Deer Guardian)

Are You A Wizard? Are You A Wizard?
Speedrun the game in less than 50 minutes

All you need to complete the game is to collect all elements and visit all guardians, then complete the black hole. Find the shortest paths to them. There is no point in skipping early powerups either: they definitely pay off. The one you should skip for sure is the final one (infinity). Dash might also be worth skipping.

In your typical speedrun there should be only 2 skippable cutscenes: at the beginning and with the ship. It’s quite sad that 15 minutes per attempt you will be watching annoying cutscenes.

Avoid animal spirits and skeletons: their cutscenes are too costly! You should skip even the very first spirit and get the star in a different way.

If you make big mistakes in the first 10 minutes, it is worth restarting.

The time it takes to travel between levels adds up. The trick here is to remember the direction where you need to move next before entering a level.

The only unusual thing I did in my run is skipping the levels after Earth element, at the end of the 2nd branch, and the Mouse guardian, going to them last. Immaterial powerup replaces terraforming, making their completion much faster, and the fact that you don’t use terraforming there will help to ensure you have max hair before going to the black hole.

Developers don’t give much details on how exactly time counts here. The only comment is this:

We’re counting and counting, until you get to the very end of the game, to the end of the final cutscene. It’s doable! But tricky 🙂

My best guess is that time counts from the very beginning until you get to the center of the black hole. I did that in exactly 49:59, and I got the achievement.
