Expert difficulty features the Hint button recharging slowly, interactive zones not being highlighted, and penalties for too many bad clicks.

  • The Menu can be accessed anytime during gameplay via the button in the lower left corner.

  • Also located in the lower left corner is the Journal: this keeps track of important events, characters, and clues you uncover during your journey.

  • The Hint button is located in the lower right corner of the screen. Click on it to reveal an item, or just to point you in the right direction. Once the bottle of perfume is filled, you can use another Hint. Hints are unlimited but require time to charge. The Hint button will become the Skip button during puzzles, but will require a certain amount of time to pass before you can use it.

  • Items listed in orange in hidden object areas require an additional action before you can collect them. These items are circled in orange in the guide below and linked to the other item necessary to complete said listed item.

  • Items in hidden object areas are not randomized, and as such, all are shown in the guide below. However, INVENTORY ITEMS (written in CAPS in the guide below) do not always appear in a hidden object area, therefore they will not be circled in a separate color within hidden object areas.
