    To do this, you must do only a few necessary tasks to complete the story. As quickly as possible, skip the intro. From the start, grab the key under the duck in the drawer to enter the house. Go into the secret room to the right of the stairs to get the attic key. Go upstairs, open the attic, go up and interact with the book at the end of the attic. There isn't very much room for error, so this may take a few tries. View this video for a better look at a quick path:

    If doing this during your first playthrough, you will also unlock:

    EduWanThanks for the video and the tip! Here's my extra bit - if navigating to the attic is proving to be a bit difficult, you can go into the options and adjust the brightness to max. It makes it a lot easier to find your way and you still unlock the achievement - that's what just worked for me!

    1. Exit the game. Menu click on the game to QUIT officially.

    2. Start up a new game, start it officially, then Exit and QUIT officially.

    3. Start up GONE HOME again (a new game) - and beat in 1 minute. Mash B.

    4. Achv should pop at Main Menu screen! toast

    This is of course assuming that you are beating in less than 1 minute but the game is glitching and not popping.

    If anyone is having trouble, I have a tip for you. When you move the character, always move the left analog stick in the up direction. Control the direction of movement using the right analog stick. Doing otherwise wastes precious seconds.

    Also take point when the audio diary says "Maybe I will go into the attic...... and wait.", you should already have cleared the last step in the staircase leading to the attic and be past the cardboard box (see any of the video guides above).
