Unfortunately, you can track your progress in finding them from the main menu, because the game doesn't show how many secret chests there are to find in a chapter or how many you've already found. Fortunately, the guide is here to help you.

A separate page of our guide is dedicated to the optional windmill puzzle that appears on the open island map in Chapter 9. We explain the idea behind it, how to solve the puzzle, what is the correct setup, and what unique rewards are to obtain for completing it.
