We've explained how players can solve the Tunic Windmill Puzzle to award them both a secret treasure and an in-game achievement.

There are 12 secret treasures players can uncover in Tunic, the latest hit indie game by Andrew Shouldice. Tunic has players take the role of a small fox, who bears an extraordinarily close resemblance to one of Nintendo's very own green-tunic-wearing heroes, as they adventure throughout the world. Equipped with a small silver sword and blue painted shield, players can explore the top-down world around them, pick up pieces of an in-game manual, and uncover secret treasures by solving strategic puzzles.

Here's what we know about how to solve one such puzzle near the Windmill in Tunic.

Tunic Windmill Puzzle Achievement Solution

This puzzle begins with players standing outside of the windmill shown on the overland map. Players need to put in a special movement sequence in order to uncover hidden treasure in that area. Fortunately, the sequence can be uncovered by some eagle-eyed players who have invested time picking up piece of the in-game manual.

For reader convenience, the sequence that needs to be plugged in using the D-Pad is as follows:

  • Down
  • Left
  • Left
  • Up
  • Up
  • Right
  • Right
  • Left

If done correctly, a chest should appear for players to open. It holds secret treasure #3.

This code appears on page 53 of the manual and can be denoted by the notches that appear on the sails of the sailboats.

Tunic is currently available for the Xbox One/Series S|X and PC via Steam.
