Introduction:

Welcome to the DARQ Trophy Guide!
Award winning horror puzzle indie sensation DARQ by Unfold Games is now available on PS4! This brilliant game was an utter joy to play, I highly recommend it to you all.

DARQ takes you on a boys journey through his dreams that quickly turn into nightmares, each chapter sinks you deeper into his lucid subconscious-driven dreams. Lloyd has to adapt to the new world, re-learn gravity, strain all of his senses and mind in order to solve puzzles and sneak past the strange creatures lurking in every DARQ corner of his mind..

Trophy wise, I have given this game a 4.5 difficulty simply because of 4 quite tricky speedrun trophies. The rest of the trophies and game you can complete with relative ease, but I’ve had to ramp it up because of these 4 quite tricky and tight trophies. Also time-wise when I tested this guide I got the platinum in 1 hour 17 minutes, but I’ve added a little time to the estimate above as it’s hard to tell how much practice people will need for the speedrun trophies! 

 

Roadmap:

Step 1: Complete the game and grab the collectable from each chapter. & the 2 miscellaneous trophies.
First enjoy the game blind or use the walkthrough below to complete all chapters. Nothing is missable as there is chapter select. Make sure to grab the 6 collectable dream journal pages along the way before completing the game, there is 1 in each chapter 1-6. (There isn’t one in the finale chase chapter.)
Also along the way grab the 2 miscellaneous trophies, ‘Perceptive‘ for triggering the 3 encounters with the bag-headed boy, and ‘Off Camera‘ for completing the rotating circular maze puzzle in chapter 5 quicker than one full camera turn.

In this step you will earn these trophies:
Silver Master of Gears
Silver Subway Explorer
Silver City Dreamer
Silver Masked Genius

Tower Runner Gold
Complete The Tower under 6 minutes.

In extra level ‘The Tower’.

This speedrun is pretty tight, there is basically no room for error. You will complete it with probably only about 15-20 seconds spare. So of course try to be as fast as you can! Always be running with R2. If you have made a mistake then press restart and try again. Be aware pausing the game will not pause the timer! But with a little practice you’ll get it!

Press refer to ‘The Tower’ segment of the walkthrough above for the exact steps on how to complete this level in the quickest way. 

Crypt Runner Gold
Complete The Crypt under 12 minutes.

In extra level ‘The Crypt’.

This speedrun time is more forgiving than the others. You can complete it with about 2 minutes to spare, so you can get away with a little mistake here or there. Always be running with R2, and remember to also hold the R2 run button while rolling as the head! Of course if you have made a mega mistake then just press restart and try again. Be aware pausing the game will not pause the timer! But with a little practice you’ll get it!

Do a separate playthrough of this level specifically for this speedrun trophy. Don’t try and get all the skulls and the skull trophies at the same time as they will take quite a lot more time to get.

Please refer to ‘The Crypt (speedrun)’ segment of the walkthrough above for the exact steps to complete this level in the quickest way. 

Sharp Like Scissors Gold
Complete the scissors puzzle in The Crypt under 15 seconds.

In extra level ‘The Crypt’.

At the start of this level the first puzzle you reach will be this scissors puzzle. Namesake is because when you complete the puzzle large scissors will then hold the door open.

This speedrun trophy is tricky and requires you to be super fast! There is no room for error! If you stutter or make a mistake then press the square button which will reset the puzzle and try again.

Absolutely go like the clappers and on the D-pad input the following sequence:

L – Dx2 – Rx2 – Dx2 – L – U – L – D
U – R – D – R – Ux2 – Rx2 – D – Rx3 – D – Rx2 – U – R – D
U – L – D – Lx2 – U – L – U – R – U – Rx2 – Ux2 – R

As the head roll off the plank to the right (you are now at a different angle so you can get through the gap in the wall to reach this skull) As the body use the switch to move the plank out of the way. Now as the head roll left until you find this Diamond Skull!

Please refer to ‘The Crypt (skulls)’ segment of the walkthrough above for its exact location.

Perceptive Gold

Enlightened Gold

This trophy will unlock when you have completed the finale chase Chapter 7, completing the game, ASWELL as finding all 6 Dream Journal Pages in the previous chapters. There is 1 journal page in each chapter 1-6.

Skull Master Gold
Find all skulls in The Crypt.

In extra level ‘The Crypt’.

There are 4 skulls in this level to find. 1 Diamond Skull and 3 Quartz skulls.
They were pretty tricky to find so I highly recommend using the walkthrough above to find their exact locations! 

This trophy will automatically unlock at the same time as finding the last quartz skull trophy if following this walkthrough. 

Off Camera Gold
Solve the rotating camera puzzle before the camera completes the first rotation.

Chapter 5

This trophy is for completing the particular puzzle in chapter 5, the rotating circular maze puzzle, super fast before a full camera turn – which is about 11 seconds.

This speedrun trophy is tricky and requires you to be super fast! There is no space for error! If you feel like you have stuttered or made a mistake then stop and let the lady kill you, so you can try again, without having to replay the whole chapter again to get back to this puzzle. Listen out for the clicks the puzzle moves make, it might help. 

Also ignore the screen as you will be blind for half of the time anyway while the camera is turning, so just focus on inputting these directions on the D-pad perfectly and as quickly as you can. Good luck!

Press the red button/lever of the puzzle, and then the timer will begin when you make your first move… On the D-pad input the following sequence:

D – Rx3 – D – Rx7 – D – Rx3 – U – Rx3 – D – Rx2 – D – Lx7 – D – Rx4 – D
