Game Information


Hidden Chronicles is about mystery, discovery, and a little friendly competition. Like snowboarding or making scrambled eggs, it’s easy to learn but hard to master. As you move through boards discovering thousands of hidden items, you’ll also unlock the story of Ramsey Manor, your home base in Hidden Chronicles. You’ll meet and interact with unique caretakers there, and have the ability to build, decorate and customize the Manor.

Hidden Chronicles Valentine's Day: Celebrate love with three new scenes

Feb 4, 2012

A new limited edition event has launched Hidden Chronicles this week, celebrating Valentine's Day and introducing a new character to the game: Jeremy. Jeremy's grandparents used to live on your estate, and he has a favor to ask of you. While going through his grandmother's belongings, Jeremy found an old valentine that apparently had great importance to her. Using your gift for seeing into the history of items, Jeremy would like you to find out what was so special about the valentine. There are 12 days left in this Valentine's Day event, which comes with quests to complete and new scenes to unlock. Here's a look at how to do just that.

Drive-In to Romance
  • Place a Lasting Love Decoration on your Estate
  • Get 3 Chocolates
  • Hide a Secret Package

One of the cheapest Valentine's Day decorations is a piece of Heart Path that costs just 15 coins. Meanwhile, Chocolates can be earned by asking your friends to send them to you via individual requests. For finishing this first quest, you'll receive access to the Drive-In Theater scene. You'll also receive 160 coins and 25 XP.

Romantic Proposal 1 of 3
  • Place a Wedding Pedestal
  • Play Drive-In Theater Scene

The Wedding Pedestal costs 1,500 coins to purchase in the store. It adds 350 Estate Points to your manor. You'll need to ask four friends to be staff members in the building before you can finish it off. When you finish this quest, you'll receive 190 coins, 30 XP and two energy.

Romantic Proposal 2 of 3
  • Play 2 Games of FastFind on Friends' Estates
  • Get 3 Bouquets

The Bouquets come from a general news post placed on your wall. Meanwhile, the games of FastFind can be played with any friend, but they'll take three energy each. When you finish this quest, you'll receive 190 coins, 30 XP and two energy.

Romantic Proposal 3 of 3
  • Complete the Wedding Pedastal
  • Earn 2 Trophies in Drive-in Theater
  • Have 2,500 coins

Again, you'll need to ask four separate friends to staff your Wedding Pedestal to complete it. Meanwhile, the Drive-In Theater scene requires eight energy to play, so make sure to ask your friends for more if you're struggling to reach two mastery trophies. When you finish this quest, you'll unlock the second of three scenes in this event: the Skyroom View. You'll also receive 200 coins and 35 XP.

Wedding Vows 1 of 3
  • Place Romantic Cottage
  • Play Skyview Room Scene
  • Hide 2 Secret Packages

The Romantic Cottage costs 2,350 coins in the store and adds 600 Estate Points to your Manor when completed. It requires you to collect a variety of building materials with your friends' help: three Base Boards, two Cherrywoods, three Chimney Stones, four Crown Moldings and five Stained Glass. These are earned through a combination of general news posts on your wall and individual requests sent to friends.

Meanwhile, the Skyview Room scene requires nine energy per play, and you can only hide packages on your friends' estates one per day. These quests will be available in the game for around two weeks, so that gives you plenty of time to collect those above building ingredients from friends, and finish off the quests after this.

You're well on your way to helping Jeremy learn all he can about his grandparents' marriage, so keep checking back with us for more on this in-game Valentine's Day event!

To top it off, since The Sims Social debuted last fall, that means this year will be its first Valentine's Day. If there was ever a holiday made for the Sims, this day is it. With so much out there, we've rounded all the relevant posts into one place just so you can keep track of it all.

Hidden Chronicles: Celebrate the Year of the Dragon with new quests and items

Jan 24, 2012

While Hidden Chronicles may be Zynga's newest game (aside from mobile games, that is), that doesn't mean it's too young to celebrate holidays, with the game now celebrating Chinese New Year, or, more specifically, the Year of the Dragon. You'll be introduced to a man named Walter Li, a friend of your late uncle, who was asked to purchase an ancient dragon statue for your uncle and bring it to him personally. Of course, in the game's storyline, your uncle passed away before Walter could complete this favor, so it falls upon you.

This entire feature revolves around unlocking three new (but limited edition) scenes within the game before February 5, when you'll lose your chance. There are quests to complete along the way, helping you to unlock those scenes, and of course, we're here to help you out too.

The first quest deals with unlocking the Emperor's Chamber scene.

Unlock Emperor's Chamber Scene
  • Place a Decoration from the Chinese New Year Collection
  • Get 5 Red Envelopes

Red Envelopes are earned by asking your friends to send them to you via individual gift requests. Meanwhile, the decorations in the game's store range from small pieces of Chinese Pathways that cost just 15 coins each, to large pieces of Moon Gates or Buddha Statues (with more extravagant items costing Estate Cash). For the record, yes, a single piece of that path will work for this requirement. When you finish this quest, you'll receive the Emperor's Chamber scene, along with 160 coins and 25 XP as rewards.

Unlock Colonial Hong Kong Scene 1 of 3
  • Explore the Emperor's Chamber
  • Hide a Secret Package on a Friend's Estate

You can hide packages for your friends once per day for free, so just visit a neighbor that you haven't visited today to hide a package on their land. Meanwhile, the Emperor's Chambers scene requires eight energy to play. When you finish this quest, you'll receive 190 coins, 30 XP and a Chinese Bridge for your land.

Unlock Colonial Hong Kong Scene 2 of 3
  • Place the Chinese Bridge
  • Get 5 Lucky Cats

The Lucky Cats are earned via a general news item placed on your wall. The Chinese Bridge, meanwhile, can be found in your inventory. You'll need to ask five friends to come be your crew members inside the Bridge to actually finish it, but simply placing it on your land does fulfill this particular requirement. Finishing off this quest gives you 220 coins and 35 XP.

Unlock Dragon Dance 1 Scene 1 of 3
  • Play Colonial Hong Kong Scene
  • Get 3 Firecrackers

The Firecrackers are earned through a general news item on your wall. Meanwhile, this new Colonial Hong Kong scene requires nine energy each time you'd like to play.
You're well on your way to earning all of the scenes and prizes in this Year of the Dragon event, so keep checking back with us for more!

Are you excited to see some limited edition content come to Hidden Chronicles, or were you having enough fun simply working through the game's established storyline? Sound off in the comments.

CastleVille: Play Hidden Chronicles for free energy, costumes, and more

Jan 24, 2012

Hidden Chronicles CastleVille
After dropping cross-promotional offers for Pioneer Trail, CityVille, along with a FarmVille sneak peek, Zynga has finally rolled out the carpet to Hidden Chronicles for CastleVille players today with free special costumes, 30 Energy Potions, and 3 Hyper Craft Consumables.

The Energy Potion shown in the ad is the "Huge" kind that comes in a can. One can grants you 30 Energy, so it's not clear if you're getting one can of 30 Energy, or 30 cans totaling 900 Energy. But we're going to bet it's the former, cause 900 free Energy just sounds too good to be true. As for the special costumes, there'll probably be just one set for each gender. And if you don't know what Hyper Craft consumables are, they're items you craft when you get a Kitchen. Each one speeds up your crafting activity by a half hour and takes 26 hours to make by yourself, which is nuts, but you can easily buy one for 30 Hearts instead.

To get these rewards, reach Level 6 in Hidden Chronicles by January 26th. Zynga has raised the stakes a tiny bit, considering that CityVille and Pioneer Trail players only needed to hit Level 5. But this also means that players of those earlier games who also play CastleVille, will just have to put in a bit more time with Hidden Chronicles.

Are these CastleVille freebies good enough for you to try Hidden Chronicles? Sound off in the comments. Add Comment
