Committed: Mystery at Shady Pines – Game Introduction

Welcome to the Committed: Mystery at Shady Pines walkthrough on Gamezebo. Committed: Mystery at Shady Pines is a hidden object game played on the PC created by Fugazo. This walkthrough includes tips and tricks, helpful hints, and a strategy guide to how to complete Committed: Mystery at Shady Pines.

Gameplay

  • This game can be played in two modes: Regular and Expert. Expert has a longer recharge and no sparkles to help you know where to go next.
  • You can skip cut scenes by utilizing the Skip button, but then you miss out on the storyline.
  • Within a scene you can click on the screen to get the dialog to move on more quickly if you’d rather just read it or are playing with the sound off.
  • An arrow will tell you that you can move in that direction.
  • A hand tells you that you can pick up or move that particular item.
  • A magnifying glass is for something for which you can take a closer look.
  • The Journal will automatically notate what you’ve seen and done. It will also indicate the current task. From this page you can also access the audio—and the guide (if you have the Premium edition)
  • You do not need to click on the red x to get out, just click to the side.
  • The Map can be rather handy if you aren’t quite sure where to go next.
  • This game is somewhat linear so you usually won’t be able to find something until you know you are looking for it.

Walkthrough

  • There are several scenes where you can access two to three areas within the room.
  • When you need to turn one way or the other, I will tell you to pan left or right or to the center.
  • Circled red items are things that will go into your inventory.
