You'll need the numbers under the two portraits and from Jada (and their hair colors). Igor will tell you how to use them if you give him the yummy heart jam.

The light will appear later.

I must have came along after the issue were corrected. I dowloaded the game this month and have had not problems at all! I LOVE the grahics and the SL!

There have been times I've had to take a brief peek at walk throughs, but not often because I don't easily give up and get to that point. I LOVE the challenge and the fact that I have spent hours (off and on) with this game. Money WELL spent!

It's one of those games that I sometimes have to walk away from, clear my mind and then go back to, but that's the sort of game I enjoy most!

Thank you!

I had problems getting it installed to start with but now I'm midway through the game in Transylvania in the Inn and I can do nothing. the music is stuck on just a few notes and I have no mouse pointer. the screen isn't locked up, people still move a little but i can do nothing with it.

I am having the hardest time trying to open the gates to the crypt!!!! It keeps saying '' I can't do that'' over and over again! I am getting so aggravated. I have checked all walkthrough sites to see if i am missing something? I have the iron bar in inventory and it is highlighted on the page but i can't open the bars. Is anyone else experiencing this? How can i get it opened? Is something wrong with my download.

I don't know what you mean by gates to the crypt. There is only one gate downstairs, and all you are trying to do with the crowbar is widen the gap between the middle two bars and create an oval-shaped hole.

This is sheer madness! If there are problems with the game, then BigFish should not be posting it as if it were a new game.

I just joined a couple of months ago and have really been enjoying the challenges but I am not up to the challenge of downloading from God knows how many 'iffy' sites to get the basic building blocks to be able to play a game I paid for in good faith, (namely a functioning install file) that I should have gotten from here?.

I had no idea that this game was released in 2008. How the heck am I supposed to get support for a game that old? I went to all the sites searching for the trial download but of course they no longer exist. You can only download a full version, after PAYING for it. I already DID pay for it on Bigfish.

Maybe my question should not be how do I get this game to work but how do I get my game credit back?

Incredibly disappointed.

Wow...is everyone having problems? I am finally inside the house and exploring the rooms. Does anyone know if I am going to run into problems? It was a very long download, but seemingly successful. Glad I check in from time to time. Sorry for all of you having trouble. Seems like a great game so far.

Progress, really? I can't figure out how to get out of the first room. There is no help, no hint. I'm sorry I didn't give this the trial before I bought it. Waste of my time & money.

Welcome to the forums, mommyluvsstevie!

Sorry you are having trouble. There are almost never hints in adventure games. It's as if you are the detective and have to figure everything out. It's quite fun for me, but not for everyone.

The first thing you need to do is to locate and read the 4 news articles pertaining to the disappearances. 3 are in your journal, the 4th is referenced in one of the article and will be found in the stack of papers.

Take each article and draw a line on the map from where the body was found to where a suspect was seen.

Once all 4 are on the map, click on the location where the lines cross.
