Lost Words is an absolutely charming indie game. It is a heavily story-driven side scrolling platformer with mild puzzle elements. There is no combat featured in the game.
The game is split between a narrative-driven section where you navagate through your journal, telling the 'real world' story of the narrator, and the other half being the game character in a fictional world known as Estoria, written by the navigator. The latter is the main game, but the two halves intersect and work really well.
The platinum is very straight forward, with only a few random trophies not tied to story progression and some collectible trophies that are very hard to miss. It is entirely possible to platinum the game in one run with only minimal reference to a guide in advance. If anything is missed, there is chapter select available once you complete the game to go back and pick up anything you've missed.
The game is currently featured on the Playstation Plus Extra Tier, and is well worth giving it a play over an afternoon or a couple of evenings.
Step 1: Complete the game
The game is charming and I would definitely suggest taking your time to enjoy it and read the text and listen to the very well done voice acting. It isn't a particularly long game and most of the miscellaneous trophies will come as you play. I have noted the location for each in the guide, so you may want to have a quick browse so you can get everything in one go. Most of the Fireflies will be out in the open, but if you do miss anything, clean up is a breeze through chapter select, and the game does tell you which sections you've missed Fireflies.

Step 2: Clean up
The below trophies are collectible and miscellaneous, and therefore technically missable, but most will come as you play. The guide notes where you need to go if you miss any, and the game lets you select Diary and Estoria sections independently from chapter select once you've completed the game once. I have listed them in the order you can potentially earn them.
