This is awarded for collecting all cave paintings AND watching both the good and bad endings of each character.

The cave paintings will come naturally as you play through the game with each character. None of them are particularly "hidden" in a "this location I would never have reached w/o excessive searching"-way. Just keep in mind that there are 3 paintings in each character-specific dungeon.

Though if you miss any cave paintings, have a look at this great solution from Krystal109 (Neoseeker), who made a very good description of where to find each particular painting throughout the game: http://faqs.neoseeker.com/html/228419/ w/o the need of watching a bazillion movies etc. :)

There are 7 characters in total and you can carry 3 of them through the cave at once which results in 14/3 = 5 playthroughs

When you reach the end of the cave, choose to carry your personal object of desire with you outside for all 7 characters. On your 3rd playthrough only the character you haven't played yet has to carry his/her object of desire out of the cave. The other two characters must reject their gift (press "X" 3 times in front of the shop keeper) and leave the cave w/o their "OoD".

Do the same for the rest of the characters, that previously carried their OoD out of the cave, and the achievement will pop as soon as the last character leaves the cave, along with the achievements for watching all the good/bad endings and for every character reaching the bottom of the cave as well:

PT3: 7+1+2 (7 accepts OoD, 1+2 reject OoD)
PT4: 3+4+5 (all reject OoD)
PT5: 6+7+1 (6+7 reject OoD, 1 can do either)

Numbers are only for clarification and do not represent any specific character.

If you plan proper, you can also get every other achievement in the game in these 5 playthroughs as well. Simply start with the Hillbilly, the Knight and the Time Traveller for
