You only need to glance at my review to know that Concrete Genie is a wonderful game, but did you know it also has a fun, approachable trophy list with an easy and unmissable platinum? Well, it does!
Totally 53 trophies in the main game including 45 bronze, eight silver, two gold and that beautiful platinum, Concrete Genie’s list is one that almost completes itself. The usual, unavoidable story-based trophies are all here, alongside a handful for exploring Denska and finding all of its secrets. There are also a bunch of trophies for having various interactions with the game’s Genies, and for painting certain designs a required number of times. By the time I finished the main game, I’d popped all but one of the collection trophies, plus a couple that can only be done in the post-game free roam. Everything else comes naturally, provided you don’t steamroll your way through the game without paying any attention. Luckily, even if you do that I can’t see anything on this list that wouldn’t be obtainable by simply continuing to play after the credits roll.
All in all, this list should take you no more than six or seven hours, depending on how good you are at finding secrets. There are also three VR-related trophies, which thankfully don’t count towards the platinum, so don’t stress if you’re without PlayStation VR. Though if you do have one, definitely check out the VR mode – it’s awesome.
We’ve gone ahead and listed all of Concrete Genie’s trophies below, along with their respective logos. Click on each one to see its description, but be warned that they may contain major spoilers!
