Grim Legends 2: Song of the Dark Swan Walkthrough

2. General hints and tips

In order to best keep track of where you are at any particular moment, the guide mentions each area you are in, what needs to be done, and how to proceed to the next area.

Each puzzle, when possible, has a solution provided either by screenshot or video. For the hidden object puzzles, a screenshot of the area is provided, and all the objects that are needed to complete the puzzle will be circled. On occasion objects in the background will need to be moved in order to get to the needed object, so multiple presses of cn_A are needed. Furthermore, a couple of times, objects will need to be moved on-screen and used on things in the background. These are marked with a different color for which item needs to be grabbed, with an arrow pointing to where it needs to be used.

During the course of the walkthrough, I will mention some object in your inventory needs to be used with something in the scenery. When this is mentioned press cn_X on the thing in the scenery mentioned and then hit cn_A on the required object in your inventory cn_A.

As mentioned before, one playthrough of the main story and the bonus chapter are needed. Do note that the main story requires a playthrough on expert, but the bonus chapter only requires a casual playthrough.

There are a few missable achievements. They will all be explicitly mentioned before the puzzles that are best suited to unlock them but do take note of them and keep them in mind as you are playing:

There are also a few collectable achievements. One is for scaring away 6 butterflies. Throughout the game, you will see them in the scenery. When you do, simply put your cursor over them and hit cn_A. There is a surplus of them in the game, and I mention quite a few more than the required 6. There are also Healer's Sigils. They look like this:

They are hidden throughout the game, and there are 31 of them. I point out all of them, but some of them are fairly well hidden and can take the color and texture of the environment that they are in.
