Thank you for taking the time to make this set, and for the creative achievement names, especially the Danganronpa reference in one of them! Boy though, the no firefly achievements were TOUGH.

It is possible, you just gotta persevere. Certainly one of the most difficult ones but not impossible. May take a few days to beat

16 Nov 2020
16:58
does "creeping trough the sewers" require some sort of skip or glitch? this one is way too tight, i got a near perfect run and didnt get the achievement
16 Nov 2020

No glitch needed, only a bit of training, you can do it.

any tricks on "dark horse"?
13 Dec 2020

Done all the achievements. I think you should remove the achievements for doing the levels in the dark as its bullshit and probably turns players away from the set with artificial difficulty.

I disagree; I think it's a fun challenge + the icons looks cool
