Somerville Achievement Guide

Welcome to the Somerville Achievement guide!

2/10 Estimated Difficulty
2-4 Estimated Hours to Completion.
1 Minimum Story Playthrough
0 Missable Achievements

There are only 11 Achievements to earn in Somerville, and they’re all pretty easy to get. The game itself is not very long. There are 14 chapters, but they are very short. There are no difficulty settings as well.

Nothing here is missable. Everything can be cleaned up via chapter select if you happen to miss anything. Even better yet, you can choose what sub chapter you want as well. This makes it so that can jump in and get whatever it is you’re missing almost immediately. This also counts for the collectibles as well.

There are 10 collectibles which are different encounters with little alien orbs. If you miss any of these, you can get what you’re missing via chapter select.

There are four Achievements tied to different endings, but these can be earned by simply playing through the final chapter. You don’t even really need to “play” the final chapter for these either. All you’re tasked with doing is inputting certain patterns that decide the ending you’ll get. So, all you have to do is jump into chapter 14, input a pattern and the ending will play out.

You do not need to replay the entire game for the different endings.
