Stage 1 – Complete the game

Winds and Leaves is an excellent game for new PSVR players. The walking is smooth and at your own pace. There are a few puzzle elements but nothing too hard. Below are rough outlines on what to do and where to go:

Rough outlines on what to do
1. Complete the tutorial. You’ll get the “energy-log” that keeps you alive when not near flora (Trees).
2. Aquire the “Time-spinner” & “Dig-Stick” in the new area. Plant your first tree with your first seed.
3. Go towards a giant tree vessel, you’ll plant a seed there. You’ll now get the User Interface (UI) for the trees and the soil they need to match.

4. Continue to plant seeds until you can cross the river, you’ll reach the central area. (You’ll leave the Meadow Area)
5. You’ll see a waypoint towards a new area. Go there and start planting trees.
6. At the end of the area, you’ll see a wall painting. Go a bit further and merge seeds!
7. Keep walking until you see another tree vessel.

8. Take a few new seeds and go towards the path shown below.
9. Keep following the path until you see the waypoint in picture 2.
10. There are a couple of windmills here. Activate them by planting some trees. Use perfect seeds and mix some, so you grow a hybrid forest to activate the windmills.
11. Now cross the river and you’ll see a giant windmill, climb it. You’ll get the flying ability. (Trophy: Reconnaissance)
12. Follow the waypoints and make your way back to the central garden.

From this point on it is pretty much the same as before. In the highlands will be one addition, weather conditions. You’ll need to plant 2 different trees next to each other, in order for them to survive. The game will explain once to do so.

13. Keep following the both shown below (with the tornado)
14. Eventually you’ll get the ability to fly from tree to tree. Make your way back to the central garden.

Same as the highlands, follow the waypoints and try to plant all trees available.

The final area of the game. It’s found all the way at the beginning, as seen in the screenshot below. It is a rather short area, so you should be able to grab your final trophies quickly! When you activate the final Tree in the mountains, you must navigate towards the central garden and climb the giant tree there, in order to finish the game.

As you complete the story, you’ll be able to reload the game and start before the final ending point. This will allow you to earn any trophies you might have missed.

Ancient knowledge
Awaken all ancient paintings

Meadow (First area)
When you walk from the starting point towards the first big tree, where you have to plant a seed. You’ll come across a save-point (where you charge your energy). Go left from there, as seen in picture 1. There should be a painting.

Gulch (Second Area)
Once you reach the second area, keep walking all the way forward. You’ll see a wall painting explaining how to do a fusion with 2 seeds. Keep going forward until you reach a giant tree that needs a seed in order to progress the story. On your right are 4 twigs, plants some trees there and the painting will show.

Highlands (Third area)
While you travel through the highlands, you’ll encounter the area shown below. It’s a not-so-secret area between 2 logs you can fly through. Should be very hard to mis.

Canyon (Fourth Area)

#1) Look for a checkpoint (energy re-charger), you should continue forward as seen in picture 1. Instead, go towards the spot shown in picture #1 and plant a tree. You should be able to fly across the gap now, as seen in picture #2.

#2) As seen from the final area (giant windmill), turn around and go back where you came from. You’ll see a checkpoint, keep heading back. Now you’ll be at the picture with “Area 2”. Keep going back until you reach the picture with “Look good here!” It has a giant arc tree in it. Now, look behind the rocks as shown in the picture “The logs”. Follow the path to find another ancient picture.
