For players of I Am Dead, this guide lists the solutions to all 30 riddles and the placement of each level’s unique collectibles. Let’s check it out.
This guide spells out the answers for this game’s more tricky achievements. The riddle answers, as in what objects need to be interacted with to solve the riddle, are listed in the second section. I would recommend doing as many as you can before turning to this guide, but there’s no shame in getting stuck.
Collectibles are sorted into their own individual sections for each achievements.
Note that all collectibles must be found in one load of a level; e.g. if you find seven out of the nine cats in one load and return later to find the last one, you will need to check all nine to trigger the achievement.
Also, my apologies, but I was not planning on making a guide when I played the Lighthouse and the Sculpture Garden, so I do not have a good grasp on those collectibles. I will give as much information as I can, and invite you to point out what I’m missing. Sorry for any inconvenience this causes.
Below, the solution to each area’s five riddles are given.

They Are Actually Very Fashionable (WIP)
This one is a mess. There are at least fifteen Crocs across the lighthouse. I believe this is all of them, but I may be wrong.
1-5 – In foyer, on the shoe shelf. A pair of blue crocs, a pair of green, and a single yellow. (Note: the two pairs are counted as single object. You click on one, you click on both.)

2-6(???) – By the Morlo memorial are two different trees covered with bird houses. Thoroughly check the birdhouses and click on each wren you see. By my count there were five other wrens in the bird houses.
Change Is As Good As A Holiday
Change Is As Good As A Holiday
There are nine cats total in Old Town

9 – Head to the Bee Field. You’ll likely find this one looking for Grenkins. Inside the beehive behind the beekeeper is Mr. Whiskerable
There are six luchadores hidden throughout the camp site. Their bright yellow face masks are a big tell, except for the odd one out.
1 – In the Wash Block building. Lying on its back in the shower room stall.
2 – Inside Greg’s Old Caravan. Enter the Table, and zoom in so you can see the confiscated goods beneath the seat. Right next to the flying disc memento is a wrestler with a few missing limbs.

A Refreshing Brew
There are six Thermos flasks total in the boats.

6. Also in the Queen of the Isles Ferry. In the Engine room, enter the Lazarette. The thermos is on the Main Control Console.
This one isn’t hard, but it is counter intuitive. You can interact with the insect cases on the back wall. There are 8 total, in two groups of 4.
1-4. From the right side of the museum, stand between the Morlo and the HMS Mentor exhibits. The first case is in front of you.
5-8. On the left side, stand by the relief map, between the Gansey and the Sheller exhibits. A case of butterflies is between a beetle and a moth case on the far wall.
In the below images, my cursor is on the correct case. Open them and interact with all eight butterflies.
