    We've picked up the Ynglet Xbox achievements for the quirky indie game's launch today, and there's one achievement missing compared to the Steam list... one that purports to require a trip to Denmark.

    This looks like an easy completion.

    Given the unlock percentage on Steam/TSA it looks like it is unlockable via a VPN anyways.
    But yep it's not something MS would allow.
    Here be dragons.

    Ynglet has very positive reviews on Steam and 81% on Metacritic. I'm definitely interested in it.

    The idea of going somewhere for an achievement reminds me of Game Room games on WP, those speed achievements. Glad I didn't beast mark any of those games.
    RIP WP, thank you for giving me something to do in the hospital during one of the worst years of my life. If only I still had my old GT.

    Literally came here to say the same. Nothing like opening Moon Lander or whatever it was and doing 85 on the highway at night just for a damn achievement.

    This game is referenced in the achievement list for Welcome to Elk from the same developer. That was a charming little game so I'll probably pick this up.

    And here I could easily go to Copenhagen to play it... I'm almost tempted.

    Pretty sure the unlock percentage is high on Steam because of the Shift+1 solution, not a VPN 😂
    Broke is a state of wallet. Poverty is a state of mind.

    These levels does not look like my neighborhood at all! Have to get this one though so I can have it documented that I have completed my city :)

    I think that achievement is basically a troll that disguises the real solution behind a load of nonsense. It's like one of those trick tests in school with a long list of instructions where the last one is "ignore all previous instructions and put the test down", catching out the people who didn't read everything first.

    The big question here is: is Copenhagen worth visiting? They're big on bicycles over there which is nice. Apparently Ynglet developers don't think that's good enough.
