How do I know when I’ve 100%’d the game?

I’ve been reading forums and I’ve seen multiple quotes that give different numbers for how many puzzles there are total, and this gets muddied a bit by the question of what actually counts as a puzzle.

It’s really unclear to me how a person would know when they’ve completed/found everything the game has to offer in terms of puzzles and collectibles like audio/video recordings.

Is there an official count on the number of puzzles in the game in terms of what gets reported when you look at your save file? Are there other puzzles that aren’t accounted for in the save file statistics? How many audio and visual recordings are there?

Answer

@Devon Parsons answered quite correctly, but to make the answer more complete:

enter image description here

  1. The pond is a very clever map of the whole island. All parts of the lake facе to the corresponding areas. The lake’s water corresponds to island’s shore; and the wet shore (rocks) near the lake correspond to island’s water in-between shore (where tree houses and shipwreck is located); actually you can see the shipwreck in the lake as a piece of metal; also you can see a woman statue, which correspond to the statue on the mountain.
  2. 11 big lanterns are the lasers. If a lantern lit – the laser is activated.
  3. 6 fountains are the obelisks. If a fountain is high in the air – all puzzles on the obelisk have been solved.
  4. The flowers are the audio-logs. White flowers are the usual ones, yellow – are the golden, which you can find underground when open the mountain secret door. If a flower blossoms – the log were found and activated.
  5. 7 clams are the vaults with sheet of paper inside. If a clam is open – the vault was open.
  6. Finally and most importantly for the completion: 14 triangular leaves are the small 3×3 puzzles scattered around the whole island. If a leaf is sunken and hardly visible – the puzzle was solved.
  7. Unfortunately, the lake doesn’t label “usual” puzzles, to be sure that you’ve done them all you need to go to menu/saved games and check the first number to be 523 (the second and third correspond to the puzzles on the obelisks and number of the obelisks, they must be +135 +6, but you can check all of them with the lake and the obelisks themselves). Some of those “usual” puzzles are tricky to find, but most of them you won’t be able to avoid when you will hunt for the listed above lake-things, the rest easy-to-miss-puzzles are the ones, which allows to use various shortcuts and shortcuts (these shortcuts should be relatively obvious). Once you’ve done all of these you should have 523 puzzles count, but if you stack you can use this manual, for example.
