Game Introduction – Grim Façade: Sinister Obsession

Welcome to the Grim Façade: Sinister Obsession walkthrough on Gamezebo. Grim Façade: Sinister Obsession is a Hidden Object game created by ERS Game Studios. This walkthrough includes tips and tricks, helpful hints, and a strategy guide detailing how to complete Grim Façade: Sinister Obsession.

General Tips

Difficulty Modes

  • Casual: Skip and Hint buttons recharge faster. Active areas are highlighted with sparkles.
  • Advanced: Skip and Hint buttons recharge less fast. Active areas are not highlighted.
  • Hard: Skip and Hint buttons recharge very slowly. Active areas are not highlighted. Black bar tips are disabled.
  • You can change the difficulty mode at any point during the game in the options menu.

Cursors

  • The default cursor is a red arrow.
  • A hand icon indicates objects you can pick up.
  • The opera glasses icon has two functions. It usually indicates active areas you can zoom in on. However, sometimes clicking on an area indicated with opera glasses will give you a “black bar tip”, giving you a hint on what you need to do in this area. The black bar tips are disabled in hard mode.

Hidden Object Scenes

  • Hidden Object Scenes (HOS) are a bit different in this game. There are two different types:
  • The first type is a more standard HOS in which you need to find several (usually 12) of the same item. They are randomized, however, meaning that the 12 hammers you need to find aren’t always the same 12. This type of HOS usually contains one or two items that require an extra action to find, like leafing through a book or putting two parts together.
  • The second type of HOS is a more interactive type, so let’s call those iHOS. The bottom bar of the iHOS will show the outlines of items you need to find. If you move your cursor over an outline it will give you a description. Usually you can only find one or two items at a time, which then need to be used in the scene to uncover the next item. For example, you need to find a screwdriver that is then used to open a compartment that contains the next item.

Hints

  • The hint button is located in the bottom right of the screen, in the form of a colorful lady’s fan.
  • Throughout the game you can find more fans that will be added to your hint meter. 
  • If your hint meter contains more than one fan, you can use those in quick succession without having to wait until the meter fills up again.
  • When the hint meter goes down to 0 you will either need to find more fans or wait until the fan has fully opened again.
  • HOS usually contain two fans each. If the same HOS is played more than once, no more fans will be added. However, if you missed any the first time around they will still be there the next time.
  • Fans are indicated in pink in the screenshots in this walkthrough.
