Paranormal Crime Investigations – Game Introduction

Welcome to the Paranormal Crime Investigations: Brotherhood of the Crescent Snake Collector’s Edition walkthrough on Gamezebo. P.C.I. is a hidden object adventure game played on the PC. This walkthrough includes tips and tricks, helpful hints, and a strategy guide for how to complete P.C.I.: Brotherhood of the Crescent Snake.

General Tips

  • Located at the bottom righthand corner of the screen during gameplay is the PCI Field Kit. Whenever you obtain an item that needs to be mixed, identified, or analyzed, it will often have a blue glow in your inventory. When this happens, use these items on your Field Kit.
  • The PCI Field Kit will open slightly with a glowing blue aura inside when there’s new information to be found within.
  • The PCI Field Kit also acts as a sort of journal. You can keep track of your progress in the game, clues you’ve found, and processes and recipes you need to complete. There’s also a map here that can help you navigate your way around New Orleans.
  • In the bottom left corner of the screen is the Hint candle. Hints are unlimited, but will require a short amount of time to charge up before you can use them again. Hints can be used both in and outside hidden object areas.
  • The hidden object areas within the game are not randomized. As such, “normal” items are outlined in blue and Key/Inventory items are outlined in red. A circle means all you need to do is pick up that item as-is, while a square outline means you’ll have to click the item or move it before you can officially pick it up. Square outlines are used on items identified with green text in hidden object areas.
  • The inventory bar is located at the bottom of the screen.
  • Most puzzles throughout the game have the ability to be reset, while all puzzles may eventually be skipped after an allotted amount of time has passed.
  • Excessive or careless clicking will result in your screen becoming obscured for a short amount of time.
  • Once you’ve completed the game’s main adventure, you can access the Epilogue from the main menu. The Epilogue walkthrough can be found as the last chapter of this guide.
  • Inventory items are identified with CAPS in the text below, while items that require the Field Kit are identified with “quotes”.
  • Bonus content for the game can be accessed via the main menu.
