I already did the other 9 achievements and this one is bugging me. I've read that you need to have game open during the duration of a Tuesday, but I was wondering if there is a easy way to do it, since the game is so tricky.

    That's probably the way to do it. The Stanley Parable is crazy at times, that seems on par with what I could expect as an achievement. – Rob Rose Apr 29 '15 at 15:46

    I'm surprised you managed to get the 5-year achievement, since the game has barely been out for more than 2. – Zibbobz Apr 29 '15 at 15:56

    @Zibbobz the 5 year achievement is pretty easy, you can do it by starting the game, exit, change the system clock 5 years in the future and start the game again. – Celta Apr 29 '15 at 16:20

    Am I the only one that finds achievements like this ridiculous? 99% of people will cheat to get this achievement, which completely defeats the purpose (bragging rights) of having it to begin with. It's almost more of a bragging right to not have this achievement. – FreeAsInBeer Apr 30 '15 at 15:58

    You must not be aware of the game, one of the achievements the only way to win is to cheat, the game itself only unlocks some endings after you cheat. Also some of the achievements can be done more easily with minor things and restarts trough the game, therefore I have asked – Celta Apr 30 '15 at 16:08

Another option:

In order to get this achievement you just need to:

  1. Set your computer time to 11:58pm on a Monday.
  2. Launch the game.
  3. I'm not sure about starting to play, but I did.
  4. Then you should set your computer to go into hibernation mode.
  5. Turn off and then turn on the computer.
  6. But don't boot into the system, go into the BIOS.
  7. Change the system time to about 11:57pm on Tuesday.
  8. Save, exit and boot into the system.
  9. Play a game a bit and enjoy getting an achievement!

FYI, you can see I have gotten this achievement here.

  • I tried this, but I can't go to the BIOS menu in Windows 10, or at least I don't know how. – Celta Apr 30 '15 at 9:55
  • Are you running windows? If so, right when your computer starts it should say some where on the screen to hold a certain button (sometimes its the delete button or one of the F1-F12 buttons) to open the bios. You can see an example here: goo.gl/iDuydU – jimmyplaysdrums Apr 30 '15 at 12:17
  • The BIOS menu is independent from your OS. You can enter BIOS before the OS boots. It's dependant on your motherboard manufacturer how to enter the BIOS. Usually it's one of the F1-F12 buttons. – Leon van Noord Apr 30 '15 at 13:28
  • What I was getting at was whether he is running a Mac or PC. If it's a mac then there's no BIOS menu. – jimmyplaysdrums Apr 30 '15 at 13:49
  • I'm running a PC with Windows 10, the thing is, that screen don't appear anymore, don't know if there is an option to toggle it or so. – Celta Apr 30 '15 at 14:31

I've tried this myself, and when they say you have to play the game for the entire duration of a Tuesday, they mean the entire duration, as in a full 24-hour period.

The most reliable way to do this would be to try keeping the game open from 11:59 PM on Monday, to 12:01 AM on Wednesday (times are based on your own system and not on the time at Valve). Also, you should turn off any sleep function on your computer that would shut down the game.

    It's definitely local time, I did this achievement in the CET zone from Monday 11:50pm to 00:20am on Wednesday or so. – Sentry Apr 29 '15 at 16:48

    On a Mac system, you can type caffeinate into the terminal and it will prevent the computer from going to sleep. – TheOnlyMrCat Jun 26 '18 at 9:50
