Secrets of the Dark

JohnBFrom Orneon, crafters of The Agency of Anomalies: Mystic Hospital, comes Secrets of the Dark: Temple of Night, a hidden object/casual adventure game steeped in legends, demons, and a town that's a little on the strange side. The game uses a creative light/dark mechanism that allows you to peer into the demon world simply by turning off or blocking the lights in a room. This morphs the scene and opens up new passageways, reveals new items and objects to explore, and disseminates new bits of story that you'll gobble up like delicious popcorn.

Secrets of the DarkYour journalist friend Peter seems to be in trouble. While staying in an almost deserted town in the middle of the desert, he sends you a message saying he's stumbled upon a demonic plot to break loose and destroy the world. They only need one more sacrifice to pull the job off, and judging by the demons hot on his trail, Peter is that one. You rush off to his rescue, only to find a ghost town filled with creaky signs, locked doors, and more demonic mysteries than a bookshelf filled with H.P. Lovecraft tales.

To save Peter and get to the bottom of this town's mysteries, you'll do what any good casual gamer does: go on a hidden object adventure. Choose between Regular and Advanced Mode at the beginning of the game, the former offering a faster charging hint timer as well as sparkles that denote areas of interest. Search the town as thoroughly as you can, stopping to read pieces of information from strange items you find.

Inevitably, you'll hit an exploration wall and will need to solve some puzzles to continue. To solve a puzzle you'll need some items, and items can be found through general nosiness as well as via hidden object scenes. With the correct item in your inventory, you can return to the scene of the puzzle, insert part A into receptacle C and be on your merry way.

Secrets of the DarkAnalysis: Orneon knows its hidden object adventure games, and Secrets of the Dark: Temple of Night is some of their finest work. The game is delicately crafted from all sides, meshing together a good story with interesting gameplay and puzzles that never rely on trite gaming mechanisms to artificially expand the experience. The result is a full, unique, and well-paced game that is genuinely intriguing to play!

Secrets of the Dark includes a number of fantastic little touches that makes it all the more immersive in nature. The most obvious of these is how many pieces of the environment shift or animate when you click on them, even though they offer nothing and add nothing to the story. Knocking signs down and pushing glasses across the table is a lot of fun! It may not seem like much, but when you feel like you can affect the game world, it becomes yours.

Story is immensely important in Secrets of the Dark, and it's told in a very exciting, intriguing sort of way. You'll find tapes made by Peter as you explore the town. Each will reveal a bit of backstory while furthering your sense of dread. Viewing certain items also fills in some information and encourages you to really explore the game with your cursor, clicking on anything and everything that catches your fancy.

If you're hunting for a hidden object adventure game that's heavy on the latter, lighter on the former, and so steeped in horror-style myth that you'll be afraid to close the curtains in your room, Secrets of the Dark is a definite win. It's well-made from every angle and offers a smart, deep adventure game from beginning to end.

A Collector's Edition is also available. It contains exclusive bonus adventures, a bonus mini-game, wallpapers, and an in-game strategy guide. Remember that Big Fish Game Club Members pay only $13.99 for Collector's Editions (or 2 club credits), and collector's editions count 3 card punches of 6 total needed for a free game.

Scene Navigation

  • In scenes with windows, you will be changing illumination when a window covering is available.

  • If you need to identify an item in your Inventory, mouse over it for its name.

  • Some of the Hidden Object scenes will show you a group of objects that are missing from the scene, so you need to place them where they belong.

  • Hidden Object Scenes are somewhat random, but they will be marked in the screenshots because when you return to the same location, the items may then be on your list.

  • Above your list of items to find, the game will show the total number of items to find, and how many are left as you start locating them.

I love this website, and I love you guys, and normally I love BigFishGames too, but I have to say this:

Do not buy this game.

Yes, there are some innovative aspects. The light/dark thing is interesting...but it stops being used 2/3 of the way through the game. There's an interesting twist on the HOS where you replace missing objects instead of finding them...but it only occurs maybe 4 times, and also stops occurring as you get further into the game.

More importantly, and much worse, is the length of the game. The "main" portion of the game is PAINFULLY short, nominally comprised of three chapters, or about 70 pages of the in-game strategy guide. The TWO "bonus" chapters, in contrast, are incredibly long and take up another 60 pages of the guide. Excuse me? You mean, if I hadn't bought the collector's edition, I would have missed out on almost half the gameplay? Not to mention the main chapter ends on a big, unnecessary, ugly, "I heard there's another temple like this in East Asia...HINT HINT SEQUEL HINT." Subtle.

Even having bought the CE, the distinction of "bonus chapters", for me, throws off the experience. If the whole thing were combined into a single game, it might feel like a decent-length play, but when I get to the "end" and hit "bonus chapter" I expect just that: a bonus chapter, maybe another 1/6 of the original play time. When the first bonus chapter just kept going, it felt drag-y and irritating, especially because the huge number of new scenes made it feel more like an intended chapter 4 that SHOULD have been part of the game. The second bonus chapter, which only reused previous scenes, felt more like "bonus material."

Speaking of reusing scenes, while it isn't unusual for HOS games to return to a particular HOS scene twice, here that mechanic didn't work. I don't know if it was the poor design of the scenes or the sometimes massive item list the game seemed to randomly toss at you, but whenever I came back to the same HOS scene I often found a good 3/4 of the list just by clicking on all the items I recalled not clicking on the first time around. Bizarrely large or small "click zones" for items only made things more confusing.

I could go on about the weakness of the plot, the eight or nine irritatingly identical golden "keys", and other minor annoyances (if I get the cable car working, don't make me sit through the cutscene of cranking and moving the car every time I cross back and forth!)...

As I said, I love JayIsGames, I know BigFishGames is your sponsor, and I love them too and have bought many of their games.

But please, please, do not encourage this kind of game. Buy something else.

I have enjoyed the gameplay so far, but this game is pretty horribly buggy. Going to the options screen is so bugged it requires a ctrl-alt-del to exit the game. I can't even save the game, so there's a lot of problems I hope get fixed.

Secrets of the Dark: Temple of Night Walkthrough

General Information

  • From the Main Menu, you Play or Exit the game and choose your Options.

  • If you purchased the Collector's Edition, you will have access to Extras once you have completed the basic adventure.

  • You can also check the High Scores and Credits, or view the Help screen.

  • When you choose your profile, you will be asked to choose a mode of play. Regular is the more casual mode with active zones highlighted by sparkles. Advanced is the more challenging mode with no active zone help, and Hint button takes longer to refill.

  • Options include Full versus Windowed screen; Custom Cursor; Music and Sound volume; plus an adjustment for Widescreen if you play in Fullscreen.

  • Once you choose your Options, they are the same for all profiles you play, but you do have the option to change one or more from the scene Menu.

  • "Not You" lets you create or delete profiles and choose between the ones you created.

  • Screenshot

Help Screen

  • Your cursor will get various attachments to help you during your adventure.

  • A pointing finger shows that you should touch an object to get more information or to perform a task.

  • A grabbing hand means you should pick up the object.

  • A Magnifying Glass is for close-ups.

  • A highlighted area next to a window is for you to touch in order to change the illumination of the scene from light to dark or vice versa.

  • A cursor with a glow around it means you need to change the illumination to find out more information about an object.

  • Directional arrows show you where you can exit a scene.

  • Screenshot

Scene Navigation

  • In scenes with windows, you will be changing illumination when a window covering is available.

  • You can only navigate through the town in the "light" illumination, so if you wish to leave a building, make sure the windowed are uncovered.

  • The "dark" illumination takes you to the ancient world of the demons to complete tasks that aren't available in the light.

  • You can also perform tasks in the dark to make objects available to you in the light.

  • There is no timer, but there is a click penalty that will make your cursor crazy and end up in another place on the screen.

  • Hints are unlimited once the Hint button in the lower right corner refills.

  • In the lower left is your Journal with notations about your quest.

  • Below the Journal is the Menu where you can access the Help screen, change your options, check the high scores, resume the game or quit to the Main Menu.

  • In the center of your screen is your Inventory, and where Hidden Object Scene lists to find or items to replace are shown.

  • If you need to identify an item in your Inventory, mouse over it for its name.

  • Some of the Hidden Object scenes will show you a group of objects that are missing from the scene, so you need to place them where they belong.

  • Hidden Object Scenes are somewhat random, but they will be marked in the screenshots because when you return to the same location, the items may then be on your list.

  • Above your list of items to find, the game will show the total number of items to find, and how many are left as you start locating them.

  • There are 12 items listed at the beginning of the scene, but more may pop up as you go along.

  • After you have completed the list, there will be a Final Item for your Inventory that will be marked in turquoise blue.

  • Items shown in yellow on the list will require you to perform another task to collect that item.

  • Mini Games have a Skip option, but it will add 30 minutes to your time if you are keeping score.

  • Some Mini Games also have a Restart button to let you begin again, if you are having difficulty with the solution.

  • If you restart and there is more that one round in the game, you will have to restart from the very beginning.

Am I the only person that got a blue crystal when I should have got a pyramid in the museum storage room? I can't even move forward now and it's really frustrating after coming this far.

Where are you in the game because you visit the Museum a number of times? You might want to have a look at the walkthrough above the comments to check the particular time of your visit for additional help.

No-I am having the same problem except I am getting the cross looking thing that goes in the dark "weapon room" that gives you the blue crystal. I have restarted the freaking game 3 times now-and this past time I followed the walkthroughs to a T and the hidden object scene that gives me the screwdriver just is not coming up! :( so now I am officially stuck and I refuse to restart again! PLEASE help!

The screwdriver is in the Museum Storage Room.

When you open the cabinet, it falls in the crack in the floor. You need to play a Hidden Object Scene in the Hotel Underground to get a Magnet to retrieve the Screwdriver.

Thank you-I know where the screwdriver is-I can not get the hidden object scene that will give me the magnet to get the screwdriver to come up. all the walkthroughs say that when you get the pyramid from that room to go back to the other one to get the magnet and the hidden object scene will not come up. i followed walkthrough to a T the last time and i'm still stuck!

I wrote the walkthrough posted here and had no problem getting the magnet.

  • You don't have to pick up the hammer or get the pyramid on your first visit to the Storage Room. They have nothing to do with the Hotel HOS.

  • You do need to leave the Museum and go to the Hotel.

  • Change the illumination in the Hotel Lobby to dark to be able to go to underground alcove to play the HOS to get the magnet.

  • Then, you need to go back to the Lobby, and change the illumination to light so you can travel to the Museum.

  • If you played the first HOS in the same underground alcove to get the Beaker, there is no reason why this one should not be available.

fabulous-well then I will restart the game for the 4th time and see if it still will not let me get the magnet and let you know.

and right I was... I restarted the game-i walked into the museum storage room and went to hotel-went back and opened the cabinet and looked at the screwdriver and went to hotel-went back and picked up the hammer and went back to hotel-went back and got the "cross" (not a pyramid) and went back to hotel-there is no HOS still! If i'm supposed to be getting a pyramid in museum-when am i supposed to get the cross thing that goes in the weapon room in police station?

If you are getting strange things in places where you shouldn't, I'd contact tech support at wherever you bought the game and make sure you have the most up-to-date copy of the game.

You need the top of the pyramid to play a Mini Game in what you are calling the weapon's room.
You get the Wolf Amulet way later in the game after you enter the pyramid and meet the Wolf Man.
