₡ 1,000,000 Currants for Every Hidden Achievement Discovered (with upload time no later than December 31 2011)

It has come to light that hidden achievements previously unheard of lurk within the realm of Ur. Some of these achievements have remained undiscovered for many months, even dating back to Beta days. One such case surfaced this morning in the form of Holy Zamboni. This achievement had not been stumbled upon even accidentally by anyone at any time in the past 5 months, and is also not listed in the Encyclopedia. 

There is a 99.9999999% chance*** other such secret achievements exist. Other than the fact that secret achievements are no longer really secret once discovered, they were still at one point a mystery, much like the Holy Zamboni having gone under the radar for many Glitchian years...

I am offering a 1 million currants bounty to the verified original discoverer of each hidden achievement that has been undiscovered as of February 24 2012. The hidden achievement must also have an upload date no later than December 31 2011 (so "old" hidden achievements that no one has stumbled upon yet). This offer stands for each newly discovered hidden achievement fitting the aforementioned criteria; thus if you discover 3, then your prize is 3 million. Hidden achievements are qualified by their lack of entry in the official Encyclopedia page. Hidden achievements also do not have a URL linked to the achievement name when viewing on profile feeds and your achievements page. They also do not appear in the API.

  • So who is going to test to see if there is a badge for tasting 1009 piggy plops?  Seems like for that one, we should throw the person a party in addition to the $1 million.

  • I hope someone else is busy working on the hidden Truly Tasteless achievement for tasting an unspecified number of Piggy Plops....

  • Ice cruncher was added on September 24 ( http://c2.glitch.bz/achievements/2011-09-24/ice_cruncher_1316906561_180.png)

    The badge image files are sorted on glitch.bz by when they were added, like Pop Idol (http://c2.glitch.bz/achievements/2011-12-20/pop_star_1324407015_180.png)

    I can't access the indexes though.  Anyone better at accessing this stuff?

  • Kronos Rats, the Impossible Achievement is merely a text display. The actual requirement is just "null" listed in the display for skill requirements.

    wuilyl, yes the description says 15 planks, but "planks" is a pretty arbitrary number, so for practical purposes, just run as far as you can :p

    Great ideas everyone has proposed so far! Best of luck and thanks for all the effort!
    Posted 3 years ago by TomC Subscriber! | Permalink
  • Battersea, there is no way to access the index, otherwise it would be too easy and we'd know everything haha.

    I have gathered a list here:  glitchium.com/achievements/id/

  • There was a thread a while ago that said someone got a badge for giving away onions. But someone couldn't find the badge on the person's account and said that there was no badge for giving away onions.

  • There is no achievement for getting max energy from mediation in one day though you get the Zen buff (debuff?), 'You cannot gain energy from mediation anymore today.'
    Posted 3 years ago by MaryLiLamb Subscriber! | Permalink
  • I wonder if anyone has gotten the max energy for multiple days, perhaps a couple hundred, or maybe consecutive days of Zen.
    Posted 3 years ago by TomC Subscriber! | Permalink
  • I ate 1009 mushrooms........nothing.
    Posted 3 years ago by Innie✿, Obviously Subscriber! | Permalink
  • What? Consecutive days of the Zen buff? Like the Numismatizer badges? That's... darned difficult!
    Posted 3 years ago by Mal'akh Subscriber! | Permalink
  • Dear lord, that would be boring. It took me an hour and a half to get max energy. Just standing there meditating.
    Posted 3 years ago by MaryLiLamb Subscriber! | Permalink
  • At level 60 I'm not even sure it's POSSIBLE xD We need 4290 energy per game day to max out I think xP

  • If no one else does it before I finish drinking all of these Mabbish coffees, l'll try the broccoli next (the xp part of it, not eating them) lol
    Posted 3 years ago by JoJoJoey Subscriber! | Permalink
  • Thanks for posting that Tiarra, I remembered that thread and it had been killing me trying to remember which food item that it was, not to mention that I couldn't locate the original thread.
    Posted 3 years ago by Mithax Subscriber! | Permalink
  • Made and drank over 1009 Mabbish coffees and nothing but the caffeine buzz lol 

    The broccoli's will take awhile to do coz there's an xp cap on it but I've got that test started

  • Do the Ormonos Completist and Lida Completist badges count? They showed up recently on the Glitchium achievement rarity list.

    Though it's not like anyone can actually get them...
    Posted 3 years ago by Espresso Chai Subscriber! | Permalink
  • Ah those don't count; when they are released they would appear in the Encyclopedia thus not quite the "Hidden" type. They were created around the same time as Callopee and Aranna Completists.
    Posted 3 years ago by TomC Subscriber! | Permalink
  • Oooh new regions! Nice find, Espresso!
    I'll try for those ice cruncher badges. *moans about cold teeth*

  • I've tried so hard to get Hairball Gonzalez so many times and still fail. Done it on normal streets and also AL. Any tips?
    Posted 3 years ago by Bexatious Subscriber! | Permalink
  • Bex, maybe try it together with spinach? And maybe try it in Groddle Forest Junction; when you switch streets, just press Enter on whatever street it highlights and keep running. It may be a lag issue if your buff is running out too quickly.
    Posted 3 years ago by TomC Subscriber! | Permalink
  • What about 1009 garlic kisses? *ugh*
    Posted 3 years ago by LokiPDX Subscriber! | Permalink
  • You mean spinach AND the essence? Hmm I could try that for sure whenever I emerge from my mining grind. Will let you know!
    Posted 3 years ago by Bexatious Subscriber! | Permalink
  • Yeah, it might not be a huge difference, but perhaps it'll give you just the extra milliseconds edge with combined spinach and essence.
    Posted 3 years ago by TomC Subscriber! | Permalink
  • I'll save someone else the time of smiling at the same chick >600 times- even when you bottom out your mood you can still smile at the chick, but you ain't gettin' a badge.

  • if no one is trying it, ill try to poison 1009 trees (specific trees maybe if it doesn't work) and/or antidote 1009 as well... Or make 1009 things with a tinker-tool... well see
    Posted 3 years ago by Taco Assassin Subscriber! | Permalink
  • There is already an achievement for chopping 1009 dead trees so many people have already poisoned plenty of trees. I highly doubt there is one for antidoting 1009 because the sequence currently stops at 251. And probably no hidden achievement for making 1009 tinker tool items either. All of the hidden achievements so far have not required any of the Skills other than Confounder of Logic, but that is clearly a special case.
    Posted 3 years ago by TomC Subscriber! | Permalink
  • silly question - but what is the fascination that the devs have with the "1009 " number?
    Posted 3 years ago by serenitycat Subscriber! | Permalink
  • 99% of the achievements have prime number requirements so 1009 is just a prime number close to 1000.
    Posted 3 years ago by TomC Subscriber! | Permalink
  • 99.9 repeating = 100

  • Just, odd note. Its 2012. >.> Or is that kind of the point?
    Posted 3 years ago by Wyrd One Subscriber! | Permalink
  • Wyrd, I'm not sure what you are referring to sorry. Unless you mean the cut off date is 12/31/2011 for any achievements uploaded earlier than that.
