Viewfinder Trophy & Achievement Guide

viewfinder trophy guide

Welcome to the Viewfinder Trophy and Achievement guide!

3/10 Estimated Difficulty
3 – 6 Estimated Hours to Completion
1 Minimum Playthrough
0 Missable Trophies

Viewfinder is a puzzle game that tasks you with playing with perception in order to solve puzzles. The Trophy/Achievement list is mostly made up of miscellaneous Trophies/Achievements. There are also some collectibles and story related Trophies/Achievements mixed in.

Nothing here is missable. You can return to any of the five hub worlds after the credits and replay any of the missions to clean up anything you may have missed.

Snap Away

The only thing to really know before heading into the game is to make sure to use your extra film before finishing a level. After you get the camera as part of the main story, you have a set number of pictures that you can take with it in each level.

Before interacting with the teleporter to exit a level, take pictures of whatever you like to use up the remaining film. You’ll need to take 100 pictures in order to earn the “Professional Photographer” Trophy/Achievement. It’s possible for this to pop naturally while playing through the story, but you can speed things up a bit by taking extra pictures before leaving a level after everything has been solved there.
