    Sometimes if you spend too long in a puzzle, Elohim will say something like you don’t have to finish this now, you can leave and try other puzzles and come back to this one later.

    When this happens, simply leave the puzzle you are in, and the achievement will pop.

    elquietone I think after World A and B you can no longer get this.. I heard him tell my about 5 times during A and B to leave and come back later, before actually knowing about this achievement.. When I hit world C I tried to purposely waste time running around, putting stuff in the wrong place, activating things in the wrong order and he never once even after 45mins and I tried this about 5 times, told me to come back later.. It's almost as if you need to be in a land that has green/yellow pieces + red in order to trigger the speech.. World C is all red which = hard, so I assume the game no longer tells you to go do an easier puzzle because there are none.

    I've heard people say it doesn't work on the silver/star levels. I guess I might be the first to say it doesn't work on World C anymore.

    Anubseth I kind of agree with elquitone that this achievement is missable. If you go for the 100% ending and didn't get this you'll need to start a new game since there is a limited number of backup saves that won't get you too far back.
