Man when people say the Sand Snake trophy is glitchy they sure do mean it. I suppose you could say it glitched on me but in a good way.
I had the following happen to me on my first play through and still got the trophy;
- I rewound time every time I was about to die although I've read a couple other guides that said you can't do this.
- I fell one time while going for the final life upgrade. I was out of sands so I couldn't rewind time and wasn't able to pause and quit quick enough before I was teleported back to the fountain. Thinking this play through was ruined I just continued on and was going to try for the trophy on my second play through. I did NOT quit the game and load my last save.
- I also fell once while chasing after the Dark Prince.
Imagine my surprise when after the credits I got the trophy.
Do sand credits add up over multiple playthroughs?
Yup, they do. I've tested and I can confirm it works. If you have a save of "Mental Realm" on hard difficulty, you can repeat the process now or later, if for some reason you need another playthrough to go, so that you can get sand credits without guessing how much you would need.
