    This required you to view 5 paintings, in a specific order using chapter select. After viewing a painting, the scene will change to a night sky. While looking at it, pause the game and select "Quit" and continue to the next one using chapter select. The paintings are as follows:
    1 - Chapter Six: On your way to puzzle IV, you will walk over a half cylinder. While on the cylinder, move sideways to the left or right, and then you will eventually fall to the lower ground. Now move sideways towards the middle, and you'll go under the half cylinder. When you bring it to the middle, you'll notice a staircase underneath it. Walk down, hide from the eyes (behind a bench) in order to allow the door to open and make a run to the newly opened room. Once inside, find the painting marked with a "I", and then continue the rest of the sequence without breaking it.
    2 - Chapter One: Continue through the level until you descend a large white spiral staircase. Look up to open the door at the bottom, and find this painting directly in front of you at the end of the hall after passing through the door.
    3 - Chapter 5 - Part I: Continue through these puzzles until you end up at the circular treadmill puzzle. In this area, you can find the painting at the wall.
    4 - Chapter Two: Continue until you have to rotate a bridge 90 degrees in order to cross a gap. After crossing the gap, there is an eye that opens the door out of this room, and the painting can be found directly behind it.
    5 - Chapter Six: Same room as Painting I, but on the wall directly in front of you as you walk in. Do not turn and view Painting I, or this resets the sequence.

    Viewing the above paintings, in the correct sequence will open a door in the final room. Walk forward to find a pillar and unlock the achievement.

    This is the "Soul Puzzle" Achievement
    "Do them in correct order or it doesn't work correctly"

    With Loading this takes about 20 minutes after game completion
    The Soul puzzle requires you to view all the paintings in correct order starting from "I" found in Chapter VI.

    Honestly it's much quicker to watch the video, though I'll write the steps in here as well for those that want a written solution.

    Painting I
    -This is found in Chapter VI underneath the rolling walk over area. Go to the side benches in the room so the eyes can't see you can run through the door. Once in the room turn around and walk backwards while looking up until you see the first painting . Quit to main menu
    Painting II
    -This is found in Chapter I once reaching the bottom of the spiral staircase. It's straight ahead behind boxes once getting to the bottom, look at it then Quit to main menu
    Painting III
    -This is found in Chapter V heading straight left to the first area. Solve the floor puzzle + the tile puzzle then head through the newly opened door. Painting is to the right, look at it then Quit to the main menu
    Painting IV
    -This is found in Chapter II, making your way through the level you will come across double eye movement based bridges. Once getting across and walking towards the door the painting will be on your left, look at it then Quit to the main menu
    Painting V
    -Same steps as Painting I expect just look straight ahead then look down as a new door opens for you to enter. The pillar will rise and an achievement will be unlocked!

    Chapters 1, 2, 5, and 6 -

    Starting at 54:46 in the video, I show the locations of the 5 paintings for the final achievement.

    Painting I is in Chapter 6. When you reach the pillar with buttons on all four sides and on top, rotate the door to exit to the right from where you entered, toward the clear orbs and the blue flame. The rolling bridge has a door beneath it. Just walk off to the side then back under it to find the stairs/door. Head down and hide behind a bench so the 4 eyes don't see you, allowing the next door to open. Inside, painting V is on the far side roof and painting I is directly above where you enter.

    Painting II is in Chapter 1 right after the door at the base of the long spiral stairs, at the end of the hall.

    Painting III is in Chapter 5 in pathway I. After the tile flipping and pressure plate puzzles, you'll head up some stairs to a circular mural floor puzzle. The painting is on the right as you enter this room.

    Painting IV is in Chapter 2. After you cross the FIRST rotating bridge (not the double bridge room), look to your left before going through the door.

    Finally, painting V is back in Chapter 6 again in the same room as number I. See painting I above for location details.

    View them in order number I to V to open the final door in the room with paintings I and V and get your final achievement. Make sure you don't look away from any of the paintings then turn back and look at it again when viewing them all, as this may reset the order, forcing you to load Chapter 6 again and start over. You'll unlock Soul upon completion.

    SolidTooth3160Great as always, are you a professional gamer? Do you play and make guides for a living?

    LifeExpectancyNo. I wish I could, but I don't even monetize my youtube channel because unless I have tens of thousands of subscribers, it would just annoy the small group of folks that watch my stuff as it is.

    I'm a nurse for a living. I make zero $$ on my gaming unfortunately, hehe.
