How to Unlock All Trophies in Telling Lies for PlayStation 4

Welcome to our Telling Lies Trophy Guide.

Telling Lies is an investigative drama game featuring a simulated interactive desktop environment. Your goal is to search through various clips as you try to figure out the under arching plot and how the characters in the clips relate to each other.

Phase One – Story & Missable Trophy

While I do recommend you play this game at least once without our guide to actually get some enjoyment out of it, once you’re done with that (or if you just want to get on with it) this phase of our Telling Lies Trophy Guide will focus on you getting all of the Story-related and Missable Trophies.

There are some misc trophies that you can earn at any time, even after beating the game, so those are reserved for clean-up in Phase Two of this guide, but the truly Missable one requires a whole extra playthrough so I strongly recommend you stick to our guide and can avoid missing it.

I’ve placed the Missable Trophy first below so that you’re fully aware of it.

Missable

About half way through the story a cat will jump up on the keyboard of the computer you are using and fill the search bar with random characters. Do not delete this string of characters otherwise you will have to delete your progress via the options menu and start a new playthrough. Instead press the “search” button and Animal Logic will unlock.

At 5:30AM you will gain access to the “Jane the Ripper” app that will upload all data on the connected External Drive before wiping everything. This will start a cutscene where the character using the computer will leave the apartment and head onto the roof closing out the game. You don’t have to use the Jane the Ripper app just yet if you want to go for Full Upload. Either way you will unlock Sunrise once you’ve used the app and witnessed the cutscene.

Phase Two – Cleanup

In phase two of our Telling Lies Trophy Guide you should jump back in by selecting continue from the main menu. This will put you back in the game just before the Jane the Ripper app is executed. This give you the perfect opportunity to mop-up the misc trophies below.

The hardest of these trophies is by far Missing King and might take upwards of an hour to unlock.

Misc Trophies

Trophy Image
Pointless Game

It’s the taking part that counts

Trophy Image

Unmissable

You can unlock Pointless Game by opening the Solitaire app and pressing the refresh button in the bottom right of the window several times. However, you will need to actually complete a game of Solitaire for Missing King so it’s best to couple Pointless Game with that.

Trophy Image
Missing King

The game is rigged

Trophy Image

Unmissable

Open the solitaire app on the left of the screen and begin playing. The goal of Solitaire is to create 4 piles of suits on the top right of the screen. You do this by putting an Ace of each suit in each of the slots and then build them up so that a King sits on top. Solitaire isn’t always a winnable game and you will have to reset your game by pressing the reset button in the bottom right. This will unlock Pointless Game while you are attempting Missing King.

The twist to this trophy is that a King is missing from the deck making it slightly harder. However, it’s not impossible so if you feel like your current go is a wash don’t hesitate to reset and try again. Usually, you can tell if it’s unwinnable if you don’t have access to enough Aces or low cards from the beginning. Missing King will unlock once you beat Solitaire.

Taking out the trash

Tidying up the desktop

Trophy Image

Unmissable

As Telling Lies is a desktop simulator type game, you can interact with various items exactly as you would on your own device. To unlock Taking out the trash, drag an item such as the “Welcome To Castle” text file on the desktop to the Trash icon—also on the desktop.

Trophy Image
Hypertextual

Clicking down the rabbit hole

Trophy Image

Unmissable

While viewing a clip you can highlight single words in the subtitles and press on them to do a quick search for that term. If you do this several times you will unlock Hypertextual.

Trophy Image
Forgot My Password

It’s not “password”

Trophy Image

Unmissable

At the top right of the desktop, you can see a WiFi icon that is interactable. When you click on it a list of networks will appear. Unlock Forgot My Password by selecting a network and type in “password” which will obviously fail to connect. Repeat this process several times and the trophy will unlock.
