Nancy Drew Midnight In Salem Earning All the Achievements

I know this is a question that's been going around for a while about "How you you earn the all the awards/achievements in Nancy Drew Midnight In Salem?"  Well for todays post, I have the solution to all this question today.  So for todays post, I'm sharing with everyone how you earn all the awards in Nancy Drew Midnight In Salem!  
This post will contain spoilers so you are reading this at your own risk.  So let's get started!

Before moving forward with how to find the awards, I would just like to point out that the Mac version of MID awards, specific to the Steam version, have not worked for me and the only way to get them to work is by using Boot Camp PC for Mac.  As of December 18th, a fix has been pushed out so go check your Steam downloads and download the update.  You might have to close and reopen Steam to get the update if it is not appearing.  Now onto the awards!

In beginning of the game at Moosham Castle, after losing the thief, pick up the key in the grass with the AW ornament on it.  Once you back out of the key you will get the award.

Welcome to Salem
After completing Olivia's Ghost Hunting tour, go to the Lady Liberty Statue and find the "AW'' inscription on it.  Underneath it you can read the inscription "Bring Light Into the Darkness."  This will then give you the award.

Curse not the darkness!
After leaving Lauren Holt's Home, you will get a cut scene in front of the Hathorne House of a ghostly figure.  After watching this, you will get the award.

Search the Court House evidence room.  Look in all 20 of the evidence draws and determine what items were missing, look at the evidence board, the CCTV camera above the door, and the broken window.  This can only be done after the Judge gives you permission to enter the evidence room.  Once you have completed this you will get the award.

Investigate Everyone
To get this award, you will need to investigate everyone about about there where about their alibi for the theft at the Moosham Castle and the fire at the Hathorne House.  Basically make sure you talk to everyone, including Mei, about everything.  This can all be completed during the first full day when you're by yourself without Deirdre following you everywhere.  Once you have complete all of these you will get the award.

After completing the Johnny Cakes puzzle you will get the option to cook more pancakes with cute designs baked into them.  You can give these out to the characters in the game but they will only accept the cake with a specific design.  After baking one you can get the award for the game as well as handing out each Johnny cake print out to each of the characters in the game.  The solution to what pancakes got to who is down below.

The Will
During the final decision in the game, choose the option to hand over Frances Tuttle's Will.

Trivia Tamer
Answer the Trivia Question at the end of the game correctly.

Another Cased Solved
Solve the case.

Master Sleuth
Complete the whole game on Master Sleuth.  You also need to make sure that you complete these puzzles on Master Sleuth in order to gain this award.  The puzzles you needuzzl to complete on Master Sleuth is the Ghost Hunters puzzle, the Fakery puzzle in the forest, the tunnels, and the puzzle box.  Once you complete it then you will get the award.

Special Truth Serum
Though this is not an award in the game, I still found this to be super fun to try.  On the 4th attempt at making herbal mixtures you will get Starwort.  This is one of the 3 ingredients needed to make a truth serum.

The second ingredient is found in the locked box with the other herbs.  The key for this box is found in the store on the table to the right of Lauren.  The final ingredient is found in the forest going before reaching Hathorne House.  Once you enter the forest, take two steps forward and turn left, take one step forward and adjust your camera to see the rosemary.  In my opinion it looks like a tall green weed.  Once you have all the ingredient then you can mix it at the table.

Now its time to enjoy the fun of having everyone being truthful!  Sadly, only two people are willing to drink it in the game but it's still fun listening to everyones reactions on what they think about it.

Thank you everyone for reading!  I hope this helps everyone on finding all the awards and achievements in Midnight In Salem.   I had so much fun trying to find all the awards and achievements in the game.  Many of them are super simple and easy to complete so you should have no trouble at all completing them now.  But if you have questions about each award let me know down in the comments and I will do my best to answer them.  So, what other Midnight In Salem post do you want to see next?  I would love to know down in the comments below.

Until next time,
