Darkestville Castle ~ Trophy Walkthrough

Posted Image


The interactions in this game are context-based, like Full Throttle – click on something to bring up arms (usually “grab”), eyes (usually “look”), and a mouth (usually “talk”).


The game says “grab” but by habit, I've written “pick up” throughout the walkthrough.


Lots of back and forth in this one. Sorry.

The way this act works is that you have a set amount of time in each room before Vigo appears and sends you somewhere else. You will want him to do this three times, so you can unlock Catch me if you can :bronze. Here's the bad news – neither the pause menu nor suspending the game will pause the timer. Thankfully, there's no actual penalty for this happening; it can just be annoying if you're trying to get something done.


If you're just in this for the platinum, then put the controller down and wait for Vigo to catch you three times, so you can unlock Catch me if you can :bronze  and Darkestville Demon :plat .


If you actually want to finish the game (you'll need to loop through the rooms a few times; this part of the walkthrough is broken down by room, not by order you will be doing things):


Treasury – pick up the star piece of gold from the large gold pile left of the safe

Use screwdriver with ruby eye on gargoyle on far right – get big ruby

Use cat hair, walnut pie, and gold star with mounted zombie bear on left side of room

Talk to cute ghost bear – Groar! – pick it up for ectoplasm


Laboratory – search fridge – get walnut pie

Use big ruby with laser on table

Use supercomputer on left side of the room

Use ectoplasm with toxic barrels on the left side of the room

When the laser is on, open the toxic barrels that you used the ectoplasm on, and Vigo will blow himself up
