Introduction:

As Emma walks the London streets at night, a carriage going full speed ahead drives by her, and Fenton, the Teddy Bear, falls out. To her amazement, the Teddy Bear comes to life and begins chasing after the carriage. Bewildered and curious, Emma chases after Fenton and the carriage until they all reach Kane Manor. It's here that Emma discovers a dark mystery surrounding Thomas Kane and his untimely disappearance. With the help of Fenton and his light-shifting abilities, they'll need to traverse through the Manor to discover what really happened to Thomas and who is ultimately responsible for his disappearance. You'll play through 45 puzzle-filled levels, each unique with their own riddles. 


Walkthrough:

Step 1: Play through the game while finding all 18 secrets

If you miss any secrets along the way, there is chapter select available so you can go back and replay anything needed. The puzzles in the game aren't anything too crazy, but if you find yourself stuck or are unable to progress forward, walkthrough videos for each chapter have been provided under their respective "final room" trophy. After this step, you will earn the trophies in the following order if you got everything in one go and didn't need to go back for anything:

  • Find a secret

    This secret is found in Chapter 2 Level 4, "Tweedle puddle riddle dum". 

    In the final room of this chapter where you have to cross over filling pipes with Fenton, there will be a button he presses to remove some hazards from blocking the room with the red key. Before moving on, jump down one platform to the left with Fenton, then switch to Emma. Go inside the room with the red key and create a shadow bridge for Fenton to get into the room with, then go into a hidden room on the left to unlock this secret. If you go past the button with Fenton, you won't be able to get back and will need to restart the level to get this, so just make sure you stop at the button.

    Roughly about halfway through the level, you'll come to a puzzle section where you need to turn some burner knobs with Fenton so Emma can get a red key.

    This secret is found in Chapter 4 Level 3, "Safe Passage".

    About halfway through the level, you'll come to a section with 3 eyeballs each connected to 3 enemies. The eyeballs will each produce a shadow to a beat (they last about 2-3 seconds each) which you'll need to time with Emma to get across without alerting the enemies (they won't attack you if you're in the shadows). When you initially make your way across, go underneath the platforms you just ran above (Fenton will use these to get through), and to the left of the leftmost eyeball will be a hidden room that unlocks this secret.

    This secret is found in Chapter 4 Level 7, "Music Box". 

    When you have to use Fenton to climb up the shifting/rotating platforms, Emma will need to flip a timed switch so an eyeball on the far right goes into a shadow so they can pass. Just under this switch (it's on the left side towards the top) will be a hidden room that Fenton can go in to unlock this secret. 

  • Find a secret

    This secret can be found in Chapter 5 Level 2, "What grows in the dark". 

    At the very beginning of the level, move the very first light with Emma all the way up. This will create a path for Fenton to jump down on. Jump onto the shadow and go left, underneath the initial platform he starts on, and there will be a hidden room that unlocks this secret. 

  • Find a secret

    This secret can be found in Chapter 5 Level 3, "Duel in the ring". 

    When you get through the first gate (after moving the light along the platforms so Fenton can get through), you'll find yourself in a long hallway.

  • Find a secret

    This secret can be found in Chapter 1 Level 4, "Heavy Lifting". This will be the first secret you can find in the game. 

    At the very start of the level, have Emma stand on the topmost button (where you would normally put the cart to keep it pressed down). This will open up a path to the left for Fenton to get through the gate. Go through the gate and into a hidden room to unlock this secret.
