How to get The Dash Eternal achievement in Hyper Light Drifter 😉
STEP 1: Find the correct location
The first step to getting The Dash Eternal achievement is to find the correct place. Its location is in the north of the central town. It’s the one with the two arrow things above the door
STEP 2: Buy the proper upgrade
This achievement requires an upgrade. Go up to the person in the building you just entered, hold the interact button, then buy the default chosen upgrade with 3 of the coins you found by picking up the little yellow dots around the world. What? You didn’t pick up little yellow dots around the world? Then go get some you fucking idiot.
STEP 3: Look up a tutorial
My best recommendation on getting good at chain dashes is to look up a tutorial. If you don’t, you’ll generally just flounder around, maybe get like 6 dashes in a row if you’re lucky. This achievement requires 800 in a row. Good luck without that tutorial.
STEP 4: Get a new high score, yay!
After a little bit of time, you’ll be able to chain dash consistently, and you’ll even be able to get over 100! you’ll be so proud of yourself you’ll take a break to actually play this game after hours of just sitting in this same room making no progress. You know what? You deserve it! Take a break, maybe go find a few more little yellow dots or something.
STEP 5: look up a better guide
After a few days of not being able to crack the 400 mark, maybe you’ll realize that this guide is garbage. Then you’ll go into the community and see the several other guides that teach the exact same thing, and look to them for help. That’s probably a better idea than whatever the fuck this is supposed to be anyways.
STEP 6: Have a life changing revelation
Looking at the other guides will enlighten you to the strategy of using keyboard and mouse to repeatedly dash across the refill panels, eliminating the risk of running out of dash juice or bonking into the wall. You’ll feel pretty stupid for not figuring it out yourself, and you’re right, you’re a god damned idiot.

STEP 7: Get depressed
You know when you’ve been trying to achieve something for weeks, and you’ve put a lot of time into doing it right, and you get a really good attempt at it? Then you choke when you’re literally within fingertips of finally completing it?
I WAS TWO DASHES OFF
STEP 8: Cool off over the course of a few ̶w̶e̶e̶k̶s̶ months
Take a nap
Read a book
Clean your house
Play a different game
Do whatever you need to get over it
You can come back later when you want
Just know that you won’t feel up to it for a while.
STEP 9: Finally succeed
You did it!
You finally broke through the barrier of 800
You feel really good
You feel like you could go on forever
Let’s see how high you can get…
STEP 10: End up in a spiral that sends you deeper and deeper into depression and self loathing until it’s far too late
The power cuts out at the most inopportune time
You had broken through and even managed to snag a few extra hundred dashes
You boot up the game as soon as the light returns
You check your high score
It didn’t save
All that effort
All your work
It was all for nothing
You’re back at square 1
(well actually it’s more like step 7 but that doesn’t matter)
You start panicking
Will you be able to do this again?
Your hands are shaking
The rhythm is off
You can’t do it
You begin to hyperventilate
There’s nothing left
No purpose in going on
In a moment of clarity, you decide to go to bed
It’s really late, you’ll probably feel better in the morning
You have a hard time falling asleep, but when you do, it’s deep and dreamless
When you wake up, you feel a lot calmer
You feel nothing
Numbness envelopes your body
You are a shell
You just sit there
Minutes turn into hours
When you finally move, you have resigned yourself to nothingness
You cannot do anything
You go through the motions, but eventually you cannot even do those
Like a malfunctioning robot, you pause in the middle of a common task
Those hours of nothing, turn into days
Those days, into weeks
You ignore your responsibilities
You are fired from your job, but that doesn’t matter, it doesn’t change what your life has been for months now
Your bank account is slowly drained, as bills and debt pile up
Your house is repossessed
Your belongings, sold
All you have eventually is your car, a decrepit, decade old sedan
You live in it for months, maybe years, using pocket change and dropped cash to pay for gas and food
You can’t scrape up enough money to feed you even for a single meal
You have no choice but to sell your car
You get a few hundred dollars off of a lucky deal
You are on the streets
Begging for money
An empty husk of a human being
Barely able to keep yourself alive
All because you couldn’t get over a FUCKING VIDEO GAME
I MEAN SERIOUSLY SOME OF YOU ARE FUCKING OBSESSED
GO TOUCH SOME GRASS FOR ONCE IN YOUR GOD FORSAKEN LIFE
