I. Introduction:
You are a world famous author stuck in a ten year bout with writer's block. It's a dark a dreary night when suddenly a raven comes to your room and begins gently rapping at your chamber door.

Honestly, all the Edgar Allan Poe writing I've experienced I know from seeing Homer Simpson do The Raven during a Tree House of Horror Halloween Special 15 years ago. The lack of Poe knowledge did not take away from the fun of playing this game. I imagine if you've read some Poe in the past it would only increase your enjoyment of this game.

Get a blanket, some milk and cookies and keep the lights on if you are easily spooked. It's time to set out into a ghost story and save Poe's soul from eternal damnation.

Gameplay Basics:
The world's worst grounds keeper was hired to maintain the graveyard where Edgar Allan Poe is buried. Do your best to sort through the mess and find all the hidden items on your list.

Along the way items are automatically added to your tool bag. You'll need these tools to collect items listed in blue. As with most games, it starts out very easy and gets more complex the further along you proceed.

Cursers:
The curser will change from a skeleton's hand at certain points during the game. See below for the forms it will take.

Midnight_Mysteries_The_Edgar_Allan_Poe_Conspiracy:img_2.jpg

  1. Blue hand with gears: An item from your tool bag is needed here.
  2. Blue hand with tail: Item is in the correct spot. Click and see what happens.
  3. Green hand with eyeball: Click to investigate this area more closely.
  4. Red hand: You are in the correct spot, but are not using the correct item.

 

Cheats and Tips:
Extra Hints Cheat: To obtain extra hints; in Chapter 1 – Scene 1, first collect the lantern.
After you have the lantern, find the two ravens in the scene.
Click on "Menu." The menu will come up. Click "Menu" again. You'll be asked if you're sure you want to exit. Click "Yes".
At the main menu Click "Play"
You'll be brought back to Chapter 1 – Scene 1. Your Hints will be increased by two and the two ravens are back in the scene. Click on them again for two more hints. Repeat as many times as you wish.

Midnight_Mysteries_The_Edgar_Allan_Poe_Conspiracy:img_3.jpg

Tips: Even though this is a hidden object game, some items are hidden in plain sight. If you are asked to find a Pen or Mushrooms take a look on the nearest desk or the ground next to a tree. They won't always be there, but it will save you time a few times.

A rose by any other name is still a rose. Different author, but it still works, so just go with it. As the game progresses, items on your list will change to clues. Instead of "Rose" you'll see "Flower with Thorns."  You can always click on the list item for a preview in the lantern, but keep it in mind.

A rose is not always a rose. When you are first asked to find an item, it's pretty straight forward. You'll see a red rose on the ground or next to a headstone. As the chapters progress the items will turn into a stone etchings, engravings in wood or even a cloud formation.

What would a hidden object game be without camouflage? Items such as chains and handcuffs will change color. Sometimes they will be silver, other times black and other times rust color.

My last tip is to have fun. Don't get caught up looking for an item in the hardest spot it could be hidden. If you can't find it in a hard hiding spot, it's probably oversized and right in front of you in the dead center of the screen. Remember you have hints if you need them.

  1. Chapter 1 – Scene 1 – Poe's Tomb - Number of Ravens: 2

 

Here we go! We start off at Poe's Tomb. Find the two ravens (circled below) and begin looking for the rest of the items. As you'll see, the items are very random.

Midnight_Mysteries_The_Edgar_Allan_Poe_Conspiracy:img_4.jpg

When asked to find Dates your tool bag will automatically open. Chose the tool you need. Since you only have a Scrub Brush your choice if pretty simple.  Take the scrub brush and place it below the picture of Edgar Allan Poe to reveal the dates.

Midnight_Mysteries_The_Edgar_Allan_Poe_Conspiracy:img_5.jpg

MURDERED!!! (Crack of Lightning) DUN-DUN-DUUNH! Follow the blue light to the next scene.

            Chapter 1 – Scene 2 – At the Gates - Number of Ravens: 2
After you watch the animation, collect the two Ravens.

Midnight_Mysteries_The_Edgar_Allan_Poe_Conspiracy:img_6.jpg

This is an easy scene. Just walk right through the gates. Not quite. You can't get through the gates yet. You need to crack the code. To do this you'll have to visit several headstones and collect 8 icons.

When you find the Paper and Charcoal Sticks they'll be added to your tool bag. Use them to take an imprint of the items. In this scene you'll find the Flower Icon and Open Book Icon.

Midnight_Mysteries_The_Edgar_Allan_Poe_Conspiracy:img_7.jpg

The last two icons needed to get the code are here. The Anchor Icon and Skill Icon are shown below.

Midnight_Mysteries_The_Edgar_Allan_Poe_Conspiracy:img_10.jpg

Now that you have all the icons, go back to the gate and enter the code. It's impossible to enter the code incorrectly. Change each icon by clicking on it. When you reach the correct icon it will lock into place. Lock in each of the eight icons. The door will open. Walk through the door and onto Chapter 2. Do you guys give up or are you thirsty for more?

Midnight_Mysteries_The_Edgar_Allan_Poe_Conspiracy:img_11.jpg

Chapter 2 – Scene 1 – Original Grave of Edgar Allan Poe- Number of Ravens: 1
The raven quite fittingly is on top of Poe's headstone.

Midnight_Mysteries_The_Edgar_Allan_Poe_Conspiracy:img_12.jpg

Use the Hand Rake to rake up the leaves just above your list. You'll reveal the newspaper. Usually you read newspapers for the articles, but this time, take a good look at the picture. It's a clue and will come in handy very shortly.

After you've done that, take the sponge and do some spring cleaning. You may as well start on the headstone to the left of Poe's. What do you know! It's the Face Etching.

Midnight_Mysteries_The_Edgar_Allan_Poe_Conspiracy:img_13.jpg

Once you click on the Face Etching, click on Poe's headstone to take a closer look.

Find the items. You'll add the Holds Liquid(Bottle), Wire Cutters and Stone Raven to your tool bag.
To get the Wire Piece, use the Wire Cutters on the spool of wire on the top right of the screen. Remember the picture in the newspaper? There was a Stone Raven in the arch of Poe's grave wasn't there? Wait a minute, don't you have a Stone Raven in your tool bag? You see where this is going right? Place the Stone Raven in the arch and it will move to reveal a scroll.

Midnight_Mysteries_The_Edgar_Allan_Poe_Conspiracy:img_14.jpg

Place the bottle on the ring mark at the base of Poe's headstone. Honestly people, don't you realize that if you don't use a coaster you'll leave a ring?

Place the weight on the platform in the center of the screen. The Family Crest will drop from the ceiling.

Midnight_Mysteries_The_Edgar_Allan_Poe_Conspiracy:img_21.jpg

After you find the 4th key, a skeleton will fall revealing a Hammer. Collect the hammer then investigate the back wall. Use the Hammer to break the wall and collect the Fortunado Key.

The skeleton will fall apart and you can access the secret room.

Take the Chimney Brush and use it on the fire place. Chim chiminey, Chim chiminey, Chim chim cher-ee! A sweep is as lucky as lucky can be. The Book will fall out of the chimney. Click on it to continue.

You are left with 5 keys and a Roller Dolly. Place the Rolling Dolly on the trunk located in the center of the room.

Midnight_Mysteries_The_Edgar_Allan_Poe_Conspiracy:img_24.jpg

Open the trunk. Match the icons on the keys with the icons on the lock. You must open the locks on the chains before opening the lock on the trunk.

Midnight_Mysteries_The_Edgar_Allan_Poe_Conspiracy:img_25.jpg

You're brought back to your room. Poe explains that the secrets of his past are hidden in his stories. There are 3 stories to choose from laid out on the desk. You'll need to visit each story. The order in which you visit doesn't matter. I chose to go left to right starting with "The Mystery of Marie Roget"

Chapter 3 – Scene 1 – Paris Street - Number of Ravens: 1

Le raven est sur le cote droit de l'ecran assis d'un signe. Oh sorry about that. I figured since the people in the scene are in France, but speak perfect English, that it worked both ways and you'd understand French. The raven is to the right of the screen sitting on a sign. And another thing, why is there a Gryffindor scarf in the bottom left corner? I thought Hogwarts was in England?

Midnight_Mysteries_The_Edgar_Allan_Poe_Conspiracy:img_26.jpg

As I mentioned earlier, the people in the scene all speak perfect English. Click on each person and they'll tell you a story. Once they tell their tale, they will disappear and you can focus on finding items.
 
Use the Coin in the candy vending machine and the Diamond Ring will drop to the floor. That's the best 25 cents you've ever spent. LeBlanc's Hat is inside the hat box in the street. Use the Scissors to open the hat box and retrieve the hat.
