Our Worst Fears: Stained Skin – Game Introduction

Welcome to the Our Worst Fears: Stained Skin walkthrough on Gamezebo. Our Worst Fears: Stained Skin is a hidden object adventure game played on the PC created by Puzzle Lab. This walkthrough includes tips and tricks, helpful hints, and a strategy guide for how to complete Our Worst Fears: Stained Skin.

General Tips

  • At the start of the game, you can choose between two different difficulty levels: Casual and Expert. Casual difficulty allows the skip and hint buttons to recharge quicker, and active areas will be highlighted with sparkles. Expert difficulty causes the hint and skip buttons to recharge slower, and active areas won’t be highlighted.
  • At any point in the game, you can click the “tasks” button on top of the character picture on the left to view the current tasks at hand.
  • The inventory bar is located at the bottom of the screen, and will disappear when it’s not being used. In order to engage it again, simply scroll your cursor over the bottom of the screen.
  • The hint button is located in the bottom right corner of the screen. If there is nothing to do in a given area, the hint button will point you in the right direction without depleting itself. It can be used in hidden object areas, puzzles, and normal gameplay.
  • Puzzles may be skipped after an allotted amount of time has passed.
  • Excessive clicking is penalized by temporary disablement of the cursor.
  • During hidden object scenes, you may choose to engage “Puzzle Mode”. This will show you a section of the hidden object scene including an item you need to find. Placing it over the correct area will count the item as found. Please note, Puzzle Mode is not covered in the strategy guide below.
  • Items in hidden object scenes with a gear in front of them means an extra action must be performed in order to uncover them. These items are outlined in orange in the guide below.
  • KEY ITEMS (aka Inventory Items) are all capitalized in the guide below. In hidden object areas, they are circled in red.
  • Scroll Letters, which are reoccurring items needed throughout the game, do not go to your inventory when found, but rather to a scroll. This scroll can be accessed next to the character picture on the left. Scroll Letters are circled in yellow in the guide below.
  • Hidden Objects in this game are not randomized. As such, they’ve all been circled below. “Common” items such as these with no inventory or story significance are circled in blue.
