The Evil Within is hoping to help revive the survival horror genre for the mainstream (read: non-indie) gamers. While the game looks beautiful, I wasn’t blown away by it when I played it at E3. They decided to release the achievements, but it’s not as easy as finding a list – there’s a puzzle to solve first.
If you head on over to the Evil Within site, you will find a puzzle that basically involves matches the achievement icon with the task at hand. Some are really quite easy while others are much more difficult. For the spoiler wary among you, just don’t do it. Also, you may want to avert your eyes now.
I solved the puzzle and was rewarded with a free wallpaper (as used for header) and the complete achievement list. You can feel free to see it with all the pretty images.
For those who prefer to read typed words instead of funny Evil Within fonts, here is the complete list of achievements that I have lovingly typed out for you all.

Killing all the things certainly seems like a bit part of survival here. I think I’ll stick with my sneak-em-up approach, although I’m not sure if that will work in this game. Will this be the new Resident Evil, or is there just not enough Evil Within?
