Welcome to the Oddworld Soulstorm Trophy Guide! This can be either a difficult or much easier platinum depending on how you tackle the no deaths trophy. Doing it in a story playthrough is easier because you can close the application when you die and then continue from the previous checkpoint (via level select you’d have to replay the whole level in one sitting). The list requires at least 2 playthroughs, one for the good ending and saving 1000 mudokons, another for the bad ending and killing 1000 mudokons, and some level replays for missed badges will be required. You can split up some steps if you want, which would lead to additional playthroughs but can make it easier.
There are no difficulty-related trophies with the exception of a couple of badges that will require level replays on at least Medium. Otherwise there is no reason to play on anything other than Easy mode for trophy purposes.
Step 1: Bad Ending playthrough, killing 1000 Mudokons
In this playthrough play as you see fit on Easy mode. Kill as many Sligs (enemies) as you want, don’t worry about completing badges here, make sure to kill 1000 Mudokons yourself and do not just ignore them or it won’t unlock the trophy for the bad ending at the end of Level 15: The Yards. You’ll naturally get negative Quarma in each level this way.
Step 2: New game for No Deaths & Good Ending and fewer than 100 Slig kills
In this step start a new game after having backed up your save to the cloud in the previous step and complete every level without dying. This is indicated on the level select screen by a skull icon next to each level showing you’ve completed it without dying. If you do this on a new game during the normal story playthrough you can simply quit the application when you die and it will wipe out the death, no need to even backup your save to the PS+ Cloud. This DOES however require the good ending, so you need positive Quarma on 13 or more levels to unlock 16 and 17 and complete those without dying as well, in addition to saving 1000 Mudokons or more across all 17 levels to unlock the good ending trophy.
As for the 100 Slig kills or fewer, you can combine it with no deaths or do it separately once. You may have difficulty saving enough Mudokons on every level combined with not killing many Sligs but it’s absolutely possible with the right approach which is explained in the Too Pure For This World trophy description in more detail.
Step 3: Badge Cleanup via Level Select
Now clean up all remaining badges via level select. For the Spender badge on a couple of levels you must repeat those on at least Medium difficulty, this is because items from vending machines are more expensive on higher difficulties, making the badges possible to achieve unlike on Easy.
