SUMMARY: Nubla is a hard game to explain in terms of story. It is billed as "a game in which a character, the only inhabitant of a fantasy world that exists inside pictures within the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum, seeks to know who he is and know their past through various puzzles". Basically it is a very short and simple 2D game where you find yourself in the art gallery that the game was developed in collaboration with, and have to solve various puzzles to progress further and discover who you are. The puzzles are varied but most contain mild platforming and they are very short and very easy. It's also a pretty looking game with a calming soundtrack. It's one of those relaxing, take it easy because you can't die games.
It is stated that the game is the first in a series of three, with chapter 2 due in 2016.
Trophy wise, they could all be obtained in a single playthrough in under an hour, so nice and short. There are 10 bronze trophies and 1 gold trophy for the collectible side of the game, as well as 8 gold trophies for simply completing the story. The collectible trophies are all technically missable as there is no chapter select, once you have gone past them, you'll need a whole new playthrough to get to where they were. However, the game is around half an hour from start to finish once you know what to do, so it's no biggie. With this in mind, for the first time, I will be arranging the trophies in the order you can expect to get them, with the exception of the platinum. It is confusing to look at the list in XMB order due to the collectible trophies being mixed up, so this way of listing them will hopefully make things a lot more simple.
Step 1: Complete the game - select teleporting character - whilst picking up all collectibles.
Of course with most games the recommended starting point is to play the game and enjoy it at your leisure, and you are free to do that. It won't make too much of a difference with this game either because it's very short so it's not like you will waste a lot of time doing so. However from a purely trophy hunting point of view, the quickest and easiest way to platinum is to go through each level and pick up all the collectibles in one run. You can only do this with the character who has the teleporting ability, located on the far left of the 5 characters you choose from. He has light green hair (as seen below):
A complete playthrough of the game to make it easy to get all the collectibles in one run, is here.
Upon completion of this step, you will have earned at least the following trophies:
Whispers in the dark
Bring us the light
The Woods of Vanished Faces
The Blue City
The alpine hill
Step 2: Miscellaneous cleanup.
Should you have taken the advice of gathering collectibles in Step 1, you won't need to read any further, enjoy your platinum! It will pop after the end credits.
However, if you missed one or more collectibles, you'll need to play through again to get whatever you're missing. There is no chapter select, but since the game is extremely short then it will be a breeze going back through. If you did miss a collectible, the platinum will not pop straight after you collect the last one. You'll need to quit the game, then start it up again. Because this game used to be bugged, it appears that the developer has patched it to check if you ever got all collectibles, only when starting the game. If you did, only then will Memento Nubla pop, along with the platinum.
Upon completion of this step, you will have earned the following trophies:
A lady's hat
Nine of spades
And finally, you will have earned:
Congratulations when you get this!
