Update - Achievement glitch

I've received some reports on some of the achievements not working correctly.

Thanks for reporting it, sorry about the delay in getting it fixed. I'd like to blame some problems with the original project files (which I had), but the truth is I've been swamped with the developing of Sylvio 2.

Now however, you should receive any and all achievements you are entitled to when entering the start page. Just let it sit for a couple of seconds while it goes through your save data.

Let me know if there are any issues with this (or anything else) at

Sylvio 2 is coming this fall!

The sequel to Sylvio is entering its final stages of completion, and will be released on Steam this fall. It's been in development since 2015, and continues the story of Juliette Waters and the solitude of Saginaw Family Park. Only this time around she'll be recording movies as well.

See the reveal trailer here:

And album with screenshots here:

Thanks for playing and have a great weekend.

“Sylvio succeeds at every single thing it wants to do. Games don’t do this kind of hermetic horror often, and Sylvio makes zero concessions.”
80/100 – KillScreen

“It’s a quiet horror game – an anti-screamer, right down to the calm almost-whispers of the protagonist – and it’s a triumph.”
Rock, Paper, Shotgun

“It's exciting, charmingly indie and above all, just the right amount of scary.”
8/10 – IGN
