Slip Away to a Secret
You're invited to a girls-only getaway - in the tree house.
Here Darnetta, Dana, and the others need your help with important life
questions, including family, feelings, and friendships. Pick which girl you'd
like to help, then venture through a magical wilderness filled with surprises,
clues, puzzles, and secret stones.
Venture into the Unknown
Enter a magical
wilderness that's unlike any place you've ever seen. Yet strangely
familiar...Like somewhere you've been in a dream...
Solve Surprising Puzzles
What happens if you
calm a timid deer? Or track a lizard? Or catch a firefly? Watch and listen,
explore and experiment to unlock clues to challenging, multi-step puzzles.
Gather Secret Stones
Solve the puzzles that lead
you to the secret stones. Then collect each stone in your pouch.
Unlock the Message in a Story
When you give a
necklace of secret stones to your friend, it turns into a tale from a far-away
land - a tale with a message for your friend.
So much to see and do:
- Dozens of multi-step, multi-level puzzles to solve
- More than 50 landscapes
- 7 tales from around the world
- 7 girls who share their stories

no problems figuring out the puzzles, without access to the hints (the hints
are available from Purple Moon by email) and spent the better part of the

deliberately designed it to be open-ended, so when you do manage to get the
necklaces for all 7 girls, don't expect any fireworks. On the other hand, girls
aren't 'forced' to finish a path or reach an ending."
