This guide helps you keep track of how far you are through the game and also helps you find out what achievements are available in what chapters. This way you can go back and get them. I hope this provides more info for English speakers and I am struggling to find info online.
YOU DON’T NOT NEED TO RESTART THE GAME TO GO BACK AND GET ACHIEVMENTS.
