Take a Break
You took a break from adventuring.
This achievement can be unlocked in the Brothers: A Tale Of Two Sons prologue.
Once you arrive near the wooden platforms, leave the cart and continue along the path that is beyond the flower bushes.
Once near the shore you will notice a pile of stones. Interact with the stones to get the achievement.
You threw someone’s ball down a well… Shame on you.
At the beginning of chapter 1 you will meet a child playing with a ball.
Steal the ball with one of the brothers and throw it into the nearby well to make yours the achievement.
Every family’s got one.
In chapter 1 you will come to a wheel-shaped mechanism, have the younger brother walk inside to lower the bridge and thus allow the older brother to cross it.
Grab a sheep and place it in the wheel so that the sheep keeps the walkway down as it walks, allowing the two brothers to continue together.
Before continuing the journey, however, take another sheep and, passing to the left of the thatched house, take it to the space where some bunnies are gathered.
In this area there is an extinguished bonfire, place the sheep on it to unlock the achievement.
You made the bunnies play nice.
In chapter 1, always in the same place where you obtained the Black Sheep achievement with the younger brother take the only white bunny and bring him to the ashes to unlock this other achievement.
A Sad Tune
You made someone feel better.
In chapter 4, approach the man who is about to hang himself, use the older brother to support him while with the other brother climb the tree and untie the noose rope.
Now go behind the tree and go down the small steep path to get to the burnt house.
Here, climb the beam and retrieve the music box.
Bring the music box to the man to give him some comfort and unlock the A Sad Tune achievement.
You re-united the two love birds.
This achievement requires two actions.
Earlier in chapter 1, after having climbed a wall at the top, you will notice on the right just next to a wooden bench a cage on which you will have to interact with Little brother to free the bird inside.
Then, in chapter 4 going down the stairs to reach the flying machine, you will come to a spyglass with which you will have to interact.
If you lower your view and look to the right you will notice a bird perched on a branch.
Zoom in on him to unlock the Love Birds achievement, as soon after that a second bird will arrive, just the one you released from the cage earlier.
In case you have forgotten one of the actions during the course of your game, you can use the chapter selection to remedy.
You made the inventor dance.
In chapter 4 after helping the scientist, go up the stairs located on the left to reach a kind of organ.
Use Big brother to interact with the lever, then move the trumpet to the third hole from the right.
Instead, with the younger brother, operate the crank to unlock the achievement.
Call of the giants
You sounded a giant horn.
In chapter 5, after pushing the arrow stuck in the giant’s arm, advance up the path on the left until another giant stops you from continuing.
Move to the left walking on an old log and then move to the right to reach a giant horn.
Use Big brother to play it and thus unlock the achievement.
Behind the Curtain
You found a secret.
At the chapter 6 beginning, while using the boat, once outdoors you will notice a blood-red waterfall on the right, row to reach it and slip into the narrow opening on the left to enter a cave and unlock the achievement.
You helped the turtles to the sea.
In chapter 6 after getting off the boat at some point you will encounter a large sea turtle.
Here, move the two brothers to the space on the right to run into three baby turtles who will need your help.
Use the brothers cooperation to reach the turtle located on the ledge above and push it down.
Now drag the other two small turtles until they slide into the water and when you have helped all three you have unlocked the achievement.
