  • There are 20 Macabre Objects. These are morphing objects that are triggered in scenes at different times during the game. These objects speed up the time for the hint button to refill.
  • The Map is inconsistent. It is supposed to show when an area of interest (i.e. a hidden object scene) is available in a particular room. More times than not, it doesn’t show up. The best way to use the map is for orientation.
