Achievement #1: Get Eaten

  • Achievement Description: “Get eaten by the bird.”

To unlock this first achievement you need to get eaten by a bird. This is done by completing the tutorial area and reaching the employment office. At the employment office speak to the bug in the office and then you will watch a brief cutscene where you get eaten.

Reaching the stomach of the bird in BirdGut.

Achievement #4: The Second of the Hidden (Stomach)

  • Achievement Description: “Discover the Skull of the Second.”

This skull is located just before the entrance to Stomach City. There is a snail which launches explosives at you. Normally you use these explosives to kill the snail and get a block.

    Great guide- this helped me get all the hidden skulls.

    One minor correction to your guide though; the ninth of the hidden is located in the colon- not the large intestines.

    Thanks for the help 🙁
