Syberia 3 is the third in the BH Sokol's Syberia trilogy, a series of point and click adventure games set in a fictional clockpunk/steampunk version of Siberia (not to be confused with Syberia, which is a mythical island inhabited with mammoths and does not make an appearance in this instalment). The protagonist is Kate Walker, an American lawyer who initially came to Europe for business, but ended up staying for two more games. Syberia 3 has Kate on the run from American authorities, travelling with a local tribe as they attempt to migrate snow ostriches to their breeding grounds on their sacred route across the country.
Story-wise, while Syberia 3's story stands alone, it absolutely assumes you've played Syberia and Syberia II in terms of world, lore and character explanations and as such, provides little to none of them. If you go through a lot of the dialogue, you can glean what happened in the previous games but this is not required to finish the game.
Prior to 1.03, the game-spanning The scriptwriter's nightmare was glitched, but is now obtainable. Patch 1.04 has made the story-related trophy 20,000 leagues under the lake unobtainable but everything else unlocks as it should.
The developers put out Patch 1.05 in November 2017. It retroactively unlocks 20,000 leagues under the lake, so you don't need to have a save file prior to the trophy unlocking. All trophies should unlock normally as of 1.05.
Step 1: Play through the game, unlocking all trophies
Unfortunately, Syberia 3 is one of those games that both lacks a chapter select and relies only on autosaving (a few black gears on the top right of the screen). I highly suggest you make save backups from time to time, as you often only get one shot (especially with the puzzle-related trophies) and Syberia 3 is a longer adventure game than you're probably used to playing.
I recommend following this walkthrough: LINK. It was written for the XBox One version of the game, but works for the PS4.
To help, I've arranged the trophies in the order you will unlock them while playing, broken up into the areas you'll be in when you unlock them. Keep in mind that some of the trophies require steps to be performed in earlier areas of the game so read up on the missable trophies!
There are two miscellaneous trophies that can be unlocked more or less whenever: Time to collect your thoughts and You call that cheating...?. Just make sure that whenever your dialogue has a lightbulb option, to listen to Kate's thoughts about each and every time you get an inventory item (not documents), check it for hotspots.
