General Game Information

Welcome to the Dark Parables: Curse of Briar Rose walkthrough on Gamezebo. Dark Parables: Curse of Briar Rose is a hidden object adventure game created by Blue Tea Games. This walkthrough includes tips and tricks, helpful hints, and a strategy guide to how to complete Dark Parables: Curse of Briar Rose.

  • You are a detective in Edinburgh, Scotland, who has been tasked with investigating an abandoned castle to find the source of vines threatening the city.
  • This is a Fragmented Object type of game, wherein you find pieces of an object and use the completed object in a scene.
  • The game is untimed, so you can play at your own pace.
  • If you leave the game, when you resume, you will be returned to exactly where you left off.
  • Hidden objects and pieces are located in the same place every time.
  • You may skip a mini-game, but it freezes the Hint system for 5 minutes.
  • Hints are rechargeable, taking around 30 seconds to recharge a hint.
  • For faster hint recharging, find a Cursed Morphing Object near you and click on it (see list of Cursed Objects’ locations at the end of the walkthrough).
  • If you register too many wrong clicks, your cursor becomes overgrown with briar vines, making you unable to click for a few seconds.

Map

  • Below is the map of the castle grounds for easy reference.
  • Various areas will become accessible as the game progresses.
  • Rooms marked with stars are the locations of the Transportation Device, which you can use to get in and out of the castle quickly (available after Chapter 6).
