Important information about the clues

Before you start finding all the clues, here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • You cannot find the clues in movie mode.
  • At least one clue is hidden in each chapter.
  • If you miss a clue, you’ll need to reload the chapter and play through the entire game from there, collecting any additional clues. This is the only way to get the detective work trophy.
  • Some clues can only be found if you meet a certain condition.
