Letters from Nowhere 2 – Game Introduction

Welcome to the Letters from Nowhere 2 walkthrough on Gamzebo. Letters from Nowhere 2 is a Hidden Object Game played on the PC created by Awem Studio. This walkthrough includes tips and tricks, helpful hints, and a strategy guide on how to complete Letters from Nowhere 2.

General Tips

This hidden object game requires visiting several locations, collecting all listed items and completing minigames to advance play. Finding optional Black Cats and Stamps opens additional modes of play.

  • There are 11 Episodes (chapters) consisting of a varying number of locations around town. Find all the objects at every location to continue.
  • Each episode contains one minigame. Completing minigames adds an Artifact to the town map. Artifacts are placed in a series of narrative scenes at the conclusion of the game to complete the story.
  • There are no penalties for multiple clicks in a scene and no timer when playing in the default (Adventure) mode.
  • Hints are unlimited but cost 2,500 points per hint and can only be accessed after the hint bar fills.
  • Each scene has a puzzle clue that is solved by combining two objects. Drag the mouse around the scene to find the objects. A hand indicates a movable object. A gear shows where the object should be placed.
  • Black cats will glimmer when the mouse passes over them.
  • Minigame access is indicated by a yellow outline around an object when the mouse is over the interactive area.

Modes of play:

  • Adventure – This is the only mode available when you begin play. Complete the game in adventure mode to collect 31 of 32 black cats and 93 of 96 stamps. A scene in unlimited mode contains the 32nd cat and the last three stamps.
  • Unlimited (locked) – Collect 50 Stamps to unlock. This is a timed mode in the sense that your time to find all the objects is kept. If you are registered at Awem games you may post your time. Try to beat the Ace time to win a trophy or the best time posted on Awem.
  • Puzzle (locked) – Collect 32 Black Cats to unlock. Play any minigame again or, if you skipped a game during play, play it now to earn the 100% minigame completion trophy.

Scoring Tips:

Accumulate points to purchase Bonus Items and earn trophies. With the exception of Diary pages, rapidly finding the following in a scene earns their base amount plus additional points accumulate at the rate of 1,000+ per item.

  • Black Cats: 2,000 points.
  • Stamps – 1,000 points.
  • Puzzle items – 2,000 points.
  • List items – 500 each.
  • Diary Pages - 1,000 points.

Bonus Items:

  • Thermometer – (Cost: 10,000 points.) Cursor changes between hot and cold to help locate hidden items. It only lasts approximately 30 seconds.
  • Jack in the Box – (Cost: 20,000 points.) Earn 15,000 points for finding it in a scene.
  • Camera – (Cost: 55,000 points.) Flashes the location of six objects in a scene.
  • Palette – (Cost: 65,000 points.) View pictures of the objects.

Items must be purchased prior to beginning play on a scene. These items are also hidden objects and must be found to activate them.

Beginning Play:

  • Profiles – Create or delete player profiles by following the “Not you? Click here” link on the main game page.
  • Options – Change music and sound effects volume. You may select or deselect full screen and custom cursor play.

Navigating:

Letters from Nowhere 2

The episode map shows the following:

  • Artifacts collected. Placing the cursor over an artifact provides information about it.
  • Locations. Click a location to enter it. They need not be entered in order. A small icon along the top shows any bonus item(s) purchased and available in the scene.
  • Menu. Change options or return to the main menu.
  • Trophy Room. View your trophies. At the top of the trophy page is a summary containing your score, stamps collected and cats found. This is also where you can link to Awem to post scores.
  • Bonus items. If you have sufficient points to purchase a bonus item, it will be displayed. Purchased items are only available for the scenes currently shown. Every episode has an additional location that is added to the map once the Diary page is read. The purchased bonus items don’t apply to that scene and may not be re-purchased for it.

Walkthrough

  • Black cats – green.
  • Puzzle objects – aqua with an arrow linking the two items.
  • Diary pages – pink.
  • Bonus items – white with red border.
