There are 5 achievements tied to completing the 5 Acts of the game. Act 2 is roughly 50% of the total game.
There are no hidden achievements in Act 1 (that I have found)
First Trust – During your first cutscene at the apartment with Renee, make choices showing that you trust Renee.
Enabler – In Gastown, before the fake truck arrives, give cigarettes to a cat out front of the Den (right from the start), and dont’ tell them that cigs are bad.
Trout Talker – In Gastown, at the Liquor Store, talk to the Tuna 25-30 times. It will eventually explode.
Tonic for the Soul – In Gastown, at the Liquor Store, reassure Louis in your dialogue choices.

Geezer Pleaser – In Act 2, pet the geezer. In Act 2, be nice to the delivery geezer and tip them. In Act 4, be respectful to the geezer under the Bridge, and then pet the geezer.
New Habits Die Easy – Rat out Joshua to Roger that he’s smoking in the woods.

There are no hidden achievements in Act 5 (that I have found)
Missing, to be Found
Not Born Yesterday
Sins of our Fathers
Badge of Honour
Smell-o-Vision – I assume this is for smelling all smellable items in the game. I attempted to smell/sniff all items I came across, but I guess I missed 1? If anyone can confirm and/or provide a list of all smellable items, that would be great!
Cruel to be Kind
also, if anyone has a list of all Book locations for Blurb Herder, I can update that to include all locations.
