In the beginning, there was the void, and unless you put your puzzling skills to work in this little experimental game, that's all there will ever be. Use a series of powers, unlocked as you play and experiment, to shape the world around you and turn it from an empty void into a space teeming with life and drama.

Stumbled over M. Possibly because I have a German keyboard. I know in the English layout the M is somewhere else, but I'm not inclined to find out. Don't get the point of this game.

I'm stuck in the same spot Infant Tyrone is. I've learned the Death command, but no other instructions are popping up, even though I've filled the entire game area with as many, plants, water, and squirrels as I can. Hitting the other letter keys does absolutely nothing. Do I have to go on a killing spree or something to get the next command?

All right, made it up to the "M" command. I've been spamming that left and right, but haven't gotten any new commands past "They had to be taught a final lesson," and the people apparently can't all be killed off at once. "N" doesn't work for me yet. Now what?

Killing everyone is the next step, but turning everything back to void also works.

Try destroying the entire world with D.

Nuke the site from orbit. Its the only way to be sure.

From what I can tell

There are three endings.
1.

Priests win against science. This ends up with them gaining god powers and destroying the world. You can fight with creating, or just give up and wipe everything. I'm guessing this is from using lightning, U?, on the cities.

2.

Scientists win against religion. I think this would end up with them gaining WMDs and destroying the world. You could probably fight with creating, or just give up and wipe everything. I'm guessing this is from using hurricanes, V?, on the temples. Haven't gotten this one yet, though.

3.

Coexistance. Use the morality on them when they start fighting. This one's boring.

There might be more, but those are the ones I can guess at. Maybe one where they fight for all eternity?

Will Anyone or someone help out answer how to find these achievements for this game Discovery, below. . .:

...The Holy Land...

...Rainbow Coalition...

...A Winter Wonderland...

...Random...

...Why Would Anyone Do That....

thanks for giving your time to help me out.

spoiler alerts for the achievements I already found, below. . .:
No hints. All solutions spelled out as best as I am able to explain them to this audience. Achievements numbered by left-most column read top-down then following to the next column of achievements.

Not to come off sounding rude…if any of these solutions are confusing then I do not know how to keep them down to its simplest form for you.

1st Achievement. Let There Be Light

Entered the World. By pressing the command key. . . "Enter"

2nd Achievement. Destroyer of Worlds

Destroy(D) used. I think if I am not mistaken by pressing the command key D

3rd Achievement. Official Recognition

A Cross is built. I think when one of your humans start building the Cross things

4th Achievement. Two Party System

Scientists exist as rivals to Priests.

6th Achievement. Survival of the Fittest

Scientists are the only ones left

8th Achievement. Getting Ahead of Oneself

This game gives you this when you, "Clear the World before getting Z." This Achievement is found by clearing your World before getting the command key Z. Not to sound rude…if that is confusing then I do not know how to keep this solution in its simplest form for you.

10th Achievement. PETA Would be Proud.
I do not know how I found this Achievement but the clue or the solutions given by the game, itself (in-game), is

Manage all the animals without man for a minute.

Holy Land:

After reaching Z, create a new world right up to the Priest (R), create a bunch of them (Don't use Freedom (W) or Morality (L) at any time though), Incarnate (X) to set an example of godhood, then Ascend (Y) They'll eventually kill each other and destroy the world.

Rainbow Coalition

After using Lightning and Tornadoes on the Priests and Scientists, use L for Morality on the entire world. Use Freedom, Incarnate and say hello to everyone, then ascend, and instead of destroying the world, press escape and it'll say Withdraw instead of the other thing.

Tadaaa. One happy peaceful land.

Okay, it's not a walkthrough unless I can explain what exactly to do. But, I beat it, and here's how:

ENTER

Press enter to start.

ENTER again

Press enter to discover, filling the void with ground.

ARROW KEYS

Use the arrow keys to move.

A

Make dirt, which can be rained upon to make grass.

B

Rain. If you rain in the void, you make oceans. If you rain on ground, you make sand.

C

Squirrels. They're pretty dumb right now.

D

Destruction. Destroy everything you've made to earn an achievement.

E

Trees, birds come from these.

F

Makes evergreen trees, which squirrels are allergic to.

G

Makes snow. If you snow on the void (according to Dreacos), you get an achievement.

H

Clairvoyance (did I spell that right?) Squirrels become more able to avoid danger.

I

Rivers. Pretty much just cosmetic.

J

Creates houses, men come out of these.

K

Stones. Men make altars out of these.

L

Morality. Makes men stop harming each other, I guess

M

Kill. Press D anywhere and It'll basically tell you to kill them all with M.

N

Flowers. After you kill them, it tells you to make flowers.

O

Fire. When you press O, the men will start burning your world to the ground.

P

Stars. I just went around holding P until it gave me Q.

Q

Church. No one seems to care for these, if only there was someone to convince them...

R

Priests, when you are on top of a church, press R to make priests come out. Priests get people to go to church.

S

Cities. But who will populate them...?

T

Scientists. Like churches and priests, go over a city and press T to release scientists.

U

Lightning. I guess you're supposed to scare the priests by striking their churches...

V

...But that's not enough. You need to level the churches with HURRICANES.

W

Freedom. I don't know what's different here, but it unlocks...

X

Incarnation. Enter the world as man.

Y

Ascend. Kills the man, keeps the God.

Z

Erases everything for a fresh start.

ESCAPE

Don't press ESCAPE until you are satisfied with the world, because after this, you won't have that chance again. Suicide.

So, there it is. How I beat it. If someone wants to make a real walkthrough, someone who can actually explain in detail what to do, you can copy this.

If you do, please include the achievements, I couldn't figure most of them out.

I think you get freeform mode after using escape. If you hit control (to open the menu) and click the box next to that option, then restart the game, you'll get every power.

At least, I'm pretty sure that's how it is.

I'll check, to make sure.

The best version of my old walkthroughs, also the last.

ENTER

Press enter to start.

ENTER again

Press enter to discover, filling the void with ground.

ARROW KEYS

Use the arrow keys to move.

A

Make dirt, which can be rained upon to make grass

B

Rain. If you rain in the void, you make oceans. If you rain on ground, you make sand.

C

Squirrels. They're pretty dumb right now.

D

E

F

G

H

Clairvoyance (did I spell that right?). Squirrels become more able to avoid danger.

I

Rivers. Pretty much just cosmetic.

J

Creates houses, men come out of these.

K

Stones. Men make altars out of these.

L

Morality. Makes men stop harming each other.

M

Kill. Press D anywhere and It'll tell you to kill all the men with M. This is easiest if you started out with few houses on an island, because it involves much less moving around.

N

Flowers. After you kill them, you make flowers to calm them down.

O

Fire. When you press O, the men will learn to use fire as a weapon against the animals, but it starts to burn the entire world..

P

Stars. Every man must be affected by these stars, so again, it's easiest if you have few houses.

Q

Church. No one seems to care for these, if only there was someone to convince them...

R

Priests. When you are on top of a church, press R to make priests come out. Priests get people to go to church.

S

Cities. But who will populate them...?

T

Scientists. Like churches and priests, go over a city and press T to release scientists.

U

Lightning. The priests start killing squirrels and scientists, so you must scare them into submission by striking their churches with lightning...

V

...But that's not enough. You need to level the churches with HURRICANES.

W

Freedom. It grants everyone free will. They become happier, stop killing each other, and most importantly, it unlocks...

X

Incarnation. Enter the world as man, and say 'hello' to all the people.

Y

Ascend. Kills the man, keeps the God.

Z

Erases everything for a fresh start.

ESCAPE

Don't press ESCAPE until you are satisfied with the world, because after this, you won't have that chance again. Suicide. Or...

ESCAPE

You get rainbow Coalition: After using Lightning and Tornadoes on the Priests and Scientists, use L for Morality on the entire world. Use Freedom, Incarnate and say hello to everyone, then ascend, and instead of destroying the world, press escape and it'll say Withdraw instead of the other thing. Tadaaa. One happy peaceful land. ~Zuu

Of course, by now you've unlocked Freeform Mode, so when you get tired of the world you left, just check that box and restart the game.

It's a few small tweaks, but it's finally able to describe what to do. I'm hoping someone makes an achievement walkthrough now...
