Guide to Complete Walkthrough



Missing, Presumed Darkside



Walkthrough



  • An Eye For Detail - When you first get to the switch station, go to the roof before roping it off with police tape. You'll see a ghost and get an achievement.
  • Wisdom Seeker - Click on the cookie jar and the mechanical clairvoyant a bunch of times, until you've gotten all of their different lines of advice. 10-15 times each should be plenty.

Twilight Years



Walkthrough



  • Busy Body - Click on all of the items on Nanny Dooley's shelves.
  • Resource Hogs - Get a lot of cups of tea / sandwiches by entering and exiting Nanny Dooley's room over and over. Triggered for me at 22 of each (11 entries to the room). Others are reporting as many as 30 of each to get the achievement.

Druid's Delight



Walkthrough



  • Teach An Old Dog New Tricks - Give the apple to the dog. I did it before slicing, but it may also work after slicing.
  • Well, Well, Well - After triggering the launch sequence, go to the well. It will have smoke coming up out of it. Click on the Loose Rock Base and click through the dialogue.

Funfair Dismissal

  • Unwanted Dinner Guest - In the haunted house, select mirrors 3 then 1 then 1.

Royal Fumble

Class of the Titans



Walkthrough



  • Too Cool For School - Click on the poster on the left side of the Workshop.
