    Hi !

    For this achievement you need to complete the game under 210 minutes (3h30).
    The achievement pop just before the 10 minutes credits.
    I did it in 2h53 so you have a good margin.
    Don't be afraid,it's easy to do if it's your 2nd run :)

    According to the comments,the pause menu freeze the timer.

    But if you want to be sure to unlock this achievement, quit the game if you need a long break.


    Here's my full walkthrough (in 2 parts) if you need a visual guide:



    I'm still here to help if you need more infos smile
    Have a good day !

    FeonyxAdding to the chorus of voices - I followed a guide all the way through (so didn't explore or stop running at all) and didn't get the achievement. I did pause and quick-resume a lot. Luckily (?) this game almost requires at least two playthroughs so hopefully my trash burning and speed run will combine for the 100%

    ObsoleteI paused alot and spent over 210 minutes doing my run, but active playtime for me was around 170 hours with pauses so pauses absolutely stops the timer and can be used with no problems

    Clad masterThanks !
    So maybe the problem can be related to the Quick Resume ? Just a thought.

    lucylu1983I messed up at the end after chapter 51 so I carried on till the end and never got the achievement

    So I reloaded chapter 51 and played from there fixed my mistake and did it quicker and I got both achievements just before the credits so you CAN pause the game AND reload a chapter and continue from there

    But good luck to anyone doing this because speedruns in games gets me stressed

    AmanojyakUIs there an active playtime displayed that I am missing?

    Wigglercatwait so if you start from a certain chapter (for example chapter 48) would the speedrun timer start from there? sorry I am just confused and this one of the few achievements I have left to unlock
    Posted by Wigglercat on 09 Aug at 09:39
    Clad masterNo, if you load chapter 48 after beating the game first, the game will load the timer you had a this time.

    So, if you were at 4 hours at chapter 48, then finish the game, when you'll reload this chapter, you'll be back at 4 hours, not 0.

    But you can use this method to reload an old save of you messed up a chapter. (Not very useful though)

    TREX1979I tried Lucylu1983's trick and went back to load 42 and speed up my time but with no way to see total play time I'm guessing I'm still over as it did not pop for me - oh well 2nd playthrough for such a fun and cool looking game - Thanks for the guide :-)
    EDIT:
    Got it on 2nd play through, I used a stopwatch and did it in 3:02:39 --- :-) THANKS
