General Tips

  • Play is linear and task oriented.
  • Not all items collected are added to the active inventory. Some items are added to the interactive journal with no indication that is where they are stored.
  • Check the interactive journal before going to the next chapter to make sure you have collected all the necessary items. Uncollected items are indicated by a lock.
  • Always move the cursor around a scene. Watch the cursor to see if it changes into a hand or an eye.

Walkthrough

A short clip explains the background and introduces the story line for play.

If you are not familiar with hidden object games, click "Yes" when asked if you would like a tutorial. This will show you how to interact with objects and characters.

The objects for hidden object scenes are randomly generated. That is why only inventory items are shown. They are highlighted in white with a blue border. Objects in blue indicate interaction is needed to get the item.

With the exception of a hidden object area, most inventory items are not collected from a scene until they are needed.

Assumptions:

  • You know to click through the conversations with characters.
  • After you have gone back and forth between locations more than once, you don't need to be told how many times to go up or down.
  • Just as in the movies, you will always enter a darkened door or broken window.
