Creaks: Complete Paintings and Achievements Guide

Creaks
By: Amanita Design

Creaks is the latest adventure game from Amanita Design. It has you climbing up and down ladders, sneaking across creaky floors and avoiding robotic dogs that turn into furniture. It’s less of a point-and-click adventure and more of a puzzle platformer. The paintings and achievements can be difficult to find, so this walkthrough guide should help you locate any you missed. Feel free to ask for extra help in the comments section.

Achievements:

Down the Ladder: Complete the tutorial.

Art Collector: Find a painting.

Home Sweet Home: Find and complete this interactive painting. — This is found at the start of Scene 9. You need to jump over the obstacles to get the achievement.

Meadow Song: Find and complete this interactive painting. This painting is at the start of Scene 16. To get this achievement, you need to play the notes in the right order. It goes 1, 3, 4, 2, counting from the top to the bottom. You can also use my screenshot below. The dog’s ears will perk up if you’re in the right track.

Secret Room Discovered!: Find the first secret room. – I’m not sure how you can miss this one, as I don’t see any other way out, but the room is in Scene 19. There’s a ladder slightly hidden that takes you up to a small room and a painting.

The Blue Library: Find this secret room. – This secret room is in Scene 20, down a ladder past the door that locks in the dog.

The Knight: Find and complete this interactive painting. – This painting is found at the end of Scene 20. You need to pay attention to where the other knight is going to attack and then defend appropriately. Then, when he’s laughing and drops his shield, stab him. Do this three times, until he’s defeated.

Stalactites: Find this secret room. – At the end of Scene 24, before taking the elevator up, head left into a small hidden room to get this achievement.

Time for Tea: Find and complete this interactive painting. – This painting is found at the start of Scene 27, after the cutscene. You play as the bird and need need wait until the people’s backs are turned. Then head right and hide behind the trees. Keep going until you complete all three scenes.

Scrolls: Find this secret room. This room is found in Scene 28. On the second floor, head through the crack in the wall on the right.

Behind the Curtain: Find this secret room. This room is found at the end of Scene 29. Before you climb up the ladder, head left through a curtain to find this room.

Dancer: Find and complete this interactive painting. – This painting is found at the end of Scene 31. You need to watch the big guy in the center and see which direction he moves. You’re the awkward bird to the right with the yellow hat. Use the joystick at the bottom of the painting to move in the same direction as the other guy until you complete it and get the achievement.

The Egyptian: Find this secret room. – This hidden room is found at the start of Scene 32. As soon as you drop down off the ladder, head right to find a secret room with a painting.

Sunrise: Find and complete this interactive painting. – This painting is found at the end of Scene 33. You need to complete three rounds of shooting without getting attacked by any of the animals. Use the red arrows to control the left hunter and the yellow arrows to control the right hunter. Use the big red button to shoot both guns.

Good Boy: Find and complete this interactive painting. – This painting is found at the start of Scene 36. You play as the dog and need to avoid the lights. The left handle moves you left and the right handle moves you right. If you fail, you’ll only have to repeat the puzzle you failed, not all of them.

Backstage: Find this secret room. – This hidden room is found at the end of Scene 36. When you get off the first ladder, head left into the room.

Behind the Trophies: Find this secret room. – This hidden room is found at the end of Scene 37. After the cutscene, head all the way left to find it.

Cat’s Back: Find and complete this interactive painting. – This painting is found in Scene 38. It’s a tricky one that involves lots of doors and mechanisms. I have a video of it below ándalos here’s the order of actions:

Middle, Middle, Elephant,
Left, Left, Right, Blow,
Left, Middle, Middle, Elephant,
Left, Left, Middle, Human Statue,
Left, Middle, Right, Right, Right, Right, Elevator Up, Right.

Gazebo: Find this secret room. – This hidden room is found at the start of Scene 40. Just head a bit to the left of the cable car.

The Amazing Magician: Find and complete this interactive painting. – This painting is found at the end of Scene 40. You need to use the lever and the button to make the woman, the man, and the cow jump through the hoop.

Old Bones: Find this secret room. – This hidden room is found at the end of Scene 42. There’s a switch hidden behind some bones to the right. Hit it to reveal a painting.

The Exceptional Singer: Find and complete this interactive painting. – This painting is found at the start of Scene 43. You need to use the right lever to cycle through different singing styles and the left lever to change the pitch/volume until you find an audience member likes it. Do this for each one until all four audience members are cheering and clapping. If you see all of them looking like they’re about to explode, that means the pitch is wrong. Here’s step-by-step instructions:

Left lever all the way up,
Right lever down once,
Left lever all the way down,
Right lever down once,
Left lever all the way down
Right lever down once,
Left lever all the way up.

Yes, could be goat heads. I was looking for a level with this theme, but now I have your hint. I’ll check it.

Still stuck. I’m wondering about the lonely dog in the wheel that switches on two lights by running…

Before you enter the room with three goats, you will pass a ladder. Don’t jump down the ladder, but climb up the ladder. You will find a secret room with the painting you are looking for.

I know this is asking a lot, when you get time could you put up a page with all the paintings as shown in the menu with the number of the level stamped on it?

Thank you, I misread the initial comment (I’m pre coffee). The problem it turned out I was having was not counting the intro scene when trying to find the correct scene based on the number- they really should number the scenes in-game!
