There are quite a few achievements for you to complete in Death and Taxes. While some are easy, like beating the game and unlocking one possible ending, others are a bit harder. For example, you may have to spare a specific person that the game wants you to mark for Death.

To begin completing achievements, we recommend that you run through the game one full time as you’ll unlock achievements naturally through gameplay. Additionally, it’ll save you from potential story spoilers in some of the achievement descriptions.

To confirm, Death and Taxes does have a New Game+ mode so when you finish your first playthrough, you can jump right back in and keep playing. With that out of the way, here are all of the achievements in Death and Taxes and how to unlock them!
