Waited a long time for a Dire Grove sequel, downloaded without even trying as I know it will be good.

The first Dire Grove has been my all time favourite BiGFish game.

I am 100% in agreement with you. And, although it's been five years since the original release, it's one that left a great impression on me to this day. In fact, when I saw early this morning that "Tomorrow's Game Today" was "MCF: Dire Grove. . .", I decided to download the original and am playing it again to re-familiarize myself with the story and characters in preparation for this new release. Wow. . .a "Happy Thanksgiving" present to us!!

Hmmm, well now. . .five years later and, upon looking in the original 'Dire Grove. . .' walk-through, I didn't know - or don't recall - there were morphing objects in the [original] game. Looks like I'll have to start again. Fortunately, I'm only in chapter 1 - exploring the Dire Grove B & B grounds. I definitely remember there weren't 'collectibles', but morphing objects?!? Hmmm. . .don't know how that got by me!!!

Totally stoked for this game. Wish i had seen it was free, or less before i bought it. Still I am knee deep already and enjoying every minute. It's a shame ravenhearst burned down. Those were my favorite MCF games. Dire Grove is second but still totally above all other HOG games ever made!!! Squealing with glee!

Played for an hour. Really was looking forward. Sad there are only 9 morphing objects, Sick of hitting skip - wish they would just replicate the last dire grove. If a thing isn't broken.............seriously underwhelmed. I'm done.

HELP! I have repeatedly entered the code for the rolltop desk in the hotel office and it does nothing. Is anyone else experiencing this and what is my option? I have quit the game and went back in-no luck.

Hi BLKGRL! Welcome to the forums!

Sorry you are having trouble. Have you tipped over the correct 3 figurines in the Hall and Staircase? Do you have the HINT in your inventory? The combination may not work unless you have completed these steps. Please let me know.

I hope this helps!

Game on!

Not sure if this is a tech issue or not -

During the hidden object pair match in the car, I am looking for the second coin (the first I found behind the dashboard picture).

The cursor becomes a straight arrow, and will not change or activate anything, including the menu or strat-guide buttons. I am forced to exit via task manager.

To PrplDva,

Thanks for your response. I did all that but I decided that I was just gonna start from the beginning again and see what happens.

I to am a big fan of the Dire Grove game. It was one of the few HOG games that really made an impression. I'm playing through this new Dire Grove Sacred Grove and I'm on chapter 6 where you're supposed to go outside the pharmacy and use the key to get the key lock, but the key lock is still frozen and I have nothing in my inventory to unfreeze it. I would think if I skipped a step somewhere I would still have the inventory item to unfreeze the lock, but no. Anyone know what I need to do?

Search Townsend's and use the code: (mo. of founding),
(# of canine figures +2), (# of birds to break a branch +1).

Hi

I'm born french & i must admit i have difficulty to find the secret
code at the end of the credit. "Townsend's" in my translator
is still the same so it's a name. O.k i found Townsend, DE &
Townsend MA in USA. Also a community in Ontario, CAN.

So how can i find that in a game? It's the postal zip code of
Townsend? Phone area code??? Where can i input this code?
On the door of the museum, hotel manager door, desk in
Derek's house, phone in the hidding-object screen?

I already have 2 answers : Mo. of founding = 01 or 1 (Dire Grove foundation)
# of birds to break branch = 04 or 4 (In a puzzle game you have to put 3
birds on the branch before it break.)
# of canine figures ??? I think it's the # of figurines of canine type you found
trough the game.

Please help for the rest!

I'm having the exact same problem. If you get an answer, please let me know.

Welcome to the forums, GrosPoisson77!

Spoiler below...

Townsend's is the pharmacy-it is where you use the code.


I hope this helps!

Yes! You have a lighter in your inventory to light the straw below
the lock

Hi MamaGameFreak!

Sorry you are having trouble. You need to use the FUELED LIGHTER below the lock before you can use the CELLAR KEY.


I hope this helps!
