Game Introduction – Abandoned: Chestnut Lodge Asylum

Welcome to the Abandoned: Chestnut Lodge Asylum walkthrough on Gamezebo. Abandoned: Chestnut Lodge Asylum is a hidden object adventure game created by Lazy Turtle Games. This walkthrough includes tips and tricks, helpful hints, and a strategy guide to how to complete Abandoned: Chestnut Lodge Asylum.

General Tips

  • Upon starting a new game, and accessible at any time in the Options menu, you can select your game difficulty: Casual Mode or Expert Mode. Casual mode is designed for novice players, or players who want to play at their own pace. Expert mode is designed for experienced players. Hints recharge slower and most hints are unavailable.
  • In the lower left corner of the screen is the Journal. This will keep track of valuable clues and hints as you uncover them in the game.
  • Also located in the lower left corner of the screen is the Menu. Click on this to exit your game, access options, etc.
  • In the lower right corner of the screen is the Hint button. Hints are unlimited, though they require time to recharge. Once the meter is fully filled, you can use a hint again. The Hint button will become the Skip button during puzzles, though it must be filled before you can use it.
  • In the lower right corner of the screen as well is the Tasks pad. This will keep track of tasks you have yet to finish.
  • Hidden object areas have randomized objects. Therefore, only Inventory items and items listed in blue (which aren’t randomized) will be circled in the guide below.
  • Inventory items are shown at the bottom of the screen. Inventory items are identified with CAPS and circled in red in the guide below.
  • In many hidden object areas, there will be items listed in blue. These require a combining action of some sort to become the item needed on the list. These items are outlined in blue in the guide below.
  • Also shown in the guide are the locations of the Morphing objects. These are shown in green in the guide below.
  • An important note: While the game is non-linear, and you can explore and gather items in a different order than the one outlined in the guide below, it is highly encouraged you follow the order stated below. In some rare cases, it is possible for items you will need to acquire to disappear entirely/become unobtainable if you do not encounter them in the right order, i.e. you may get the MAGNET before the EMPTY GLASS, which will result in you being unable to progress further in the game without starting over.
