Claire keeps important note about the people she has met, case developments and more in her Journal
. If you need a quick refresher on the case and your goals, take a look!
At the bottom of the screen, you’ll see the Object List
. This list tells you which objects you need to find in the scene. Every chapter has 12 objects to find. You can find them in any order you want.
In some chapters, Claire needs to find a special Story Object
critical to her investigation. Upon completing a chapter, Claire will refer to the story object(s) in dialogue and share any insights she gains from them.
Be on the lookout for Multi-Part Objects
that have to be put back together, like a phone charger and cord, or two halves of a locket. You must find both parts to clear a multi-part object from your object list.
Look for any areas of a scene with a green glow. Finding them opens a Picture-in-Picture Scene
– like the inside of a drawer, safe, closet or chest. You’ll need to open these up to find additional objects.
Every object you find charges up your Combo Meter
. The higher your Combo Meter climbs, the more points you get for each subsequent object you find. The Combo Meter decreases quickly, so try to keep those streaks going!
Look for Claire’s Golden Key
in every chapter. Pogo players get 100 bonus points for finding it, while Club Pogo Members get 500 bonus points
Claire can use her Psychic Sensor
ability to hone in on a hidden object. The closer you get, the faster her heart beats. Once used, it will take some time to recharge.
Claire can also use her Hint
ability to quickly find an object.
If you want to make the most of your Combo Meter, the Time Freeze
ability slows it down. This gives you more time to find objects while still building up your Combo Meter and getting more points.
If you’re on a roll and don’t want the fun to stop, the Clairevoyance
ability adds six additional objects to your list to find.
At the end of each scene, you’ll get a Star Rating
based on your performance. The Star Rating is based on how fast you completed the scene, your score, the number of mis-clicks and more. Play fast and accurate to get a perfect 5 stars in each scene.
In some cases and episodes, Claire’s friends and family take center stage. Don’t be surprised if Claire’s niece Harper or husband Troy take the lead every now and then.
