Gravely Silent: House of Deadlock – Game Introduction

Welcome to the Gravely Silent: House of Deadlock walkthrough on Gamezebo. Gravely Silent: House of Deadlock is a hidden object adventure game played on the PC created by Vogat Interactive. This walkthrough includes tips and tricks, helpful hints, and a strategy guide for how to complete Gravely Silent: House of Deadlock.

General Tips

  • From the start of the game, you may choose one of two modes: Casual or Challenge. Casual mode offers helpful hint sparkles, faster hint and skip recharging, and the misclick penalty is short in hidden object scenes. Challenge mode offers less sparkles, slower hint and skip recharge, and longer misclick penalties in hidden object scenes.
  • During gameplay, you can check your Tasks in the bottom left corner of the screen. Tasks will list several to-do items you should be working on.
  • Inventory items are shown and stored at the bottom of the screen. Holding an inventory item over an area where it can be used correctly will result in numerous sparkles surrounding it.
  • Hints can be accessed by clicking the orb in the bottom right corner of the screen. Hints are unlimited, but will take time to recharge.
  • All puzzles may be skipped after an allotted amount of time has passed.
  • Moving your cursor over an area that requires further interaction will often result in gears appearing by the cursor. In the same way, a magnifying lens encourages you to take a closer look, while the cursor turning into a hand means you can pick up or move an object.
  • In some hidden object scenes, some items will be listed in an orange-colored font: this means you’ll need to accomplish an extra step or two in order to cross it from the list. In the walkthrough below, these items are circled in orange. If any object is solely circled in orange, you’ll only have to click on it once or twice to interact with it. If an object is circled in orange and linked to another object circled in orange, it means you will have to move the corresponding object to the other to have them interact in such a way as to make the item on the list appear.
  • Key Items (or Inventory Items) throughout the guide are circled in red in screenshots, and identified with CAPS in the written portions of the guide.
  • Red boxes in screenshots below signify an area where a Key Item can be found, or where a Key Item should be used. Blue circles, when they are used, indicate a hidden object scene.
  • The following walkthrough also covers the Collector’s Edition of the game. For the Bonus Adventure, see “Bonus Content: Tower of Rain”.
  • Collector’s Edition owners can access their exclusive content via the “Extra Content” button in the Main Menu. From here you may choose to play Tower of Rain, view artwork, listen to music, or download the screensaver. Tracks from the game’s soundtrack may be saved to the “My Documents” portion of your computer when clicking the “Save” button, but will only save one track at a time, specifically the one selected. Artwork and the Screensaver may also be saved to the “My Documents” portion of your computer when “Save” is selected.
