The Blog Walkthrough is now up!
To get to the Blog Walkthrough, click on the Try this Game link at the top of this page, then click on the link to the Blog Walkthrough.

From its General Tips (no spoilers) section:

General Tips for the In-game Hint System
• Arrows show exits from the scene.

• A Magnifying Glass is a place where you can zoom in, usually a Hidden Object Scene. It can also be a place where you get a text clue.

• Text clues appear at the top of the screen when you click on certain items.

• A Hand Cursor is an item that you can pick up.

• The Gears cursor appears when clicking on that item causes it to move in the scene. It does not mean an inventory item should be used there.

• If you hold an inventory item over a location and it pulsates, click to use it there.

• If you right-click in any main scene, the hot spots in that scene will be revealed. This includes items to collect, zoom locations, and exits.

• When your TASK LIST is open, you will see a list of Tasks to be completed. If you click on the ? next to any task you will get a hint about that task.

• Your JOURNAL has information you have collected during your investigations. Look there for codes and recipes.

• If you are in a Hidden Object Scene, click on the HINT button in the lower right and one of the items from the list will be circled briefly. It takes a few seconds for the HINT button to recharge each time.

• Tutorial Tips will pop up from time to time. You can turn these on or off on the Options on the Main Menu.

• The MAP fills in as you go through the game. A sparkle on the Map indicates a Hidden Object Scene you have not completed yet.

• You may also see a white sparkle in a main scene. This indicates an area you can investigate further.

• The red dot on the Map shows your current position.

• Since this is a nonlinear game, players will do things in different order. It is important that you examine everything you can, since doing something in one part of town may unlock an activity elsewhere.

• If you’re not sure what to do next, check the TASK LIST and the MAP to get ideas. Right-click to reveal hot spots in individual scenes.

Thanks Robin, I was going crazy not knowing what to do with the games (zodiac signs) and having to skip the games.

Thank you, Robin! I'm looking forward to playing the demo this evening, but I'm already confused. LOL I'm sure I will use your walkthrough a few times, well, maybe more than a few!

Thank you, Robin!! I have been so frustrated with this game that I was about to quit for good right in the middle! Now I can play with at least some level of enjoyment. Wandering aimlessly to and fro is not my cup of tea.
Happy New Year,
Audrey
