Inspired by Robert Louis Stevenson’s novel.

1827 – William Legrand, son of a fallen family, came to Sullivan Island, South Carolina, to flee the misery.

Wandering on the island, he discovers a rare bug, made of gold. He uses a piece of paper to take it. At night, he draws the bug on this same piece of paper, as he is explaining the adventure to his friend Edgar, standing in front of the fireplace.

As William takes back the paper, he realises that symbols appeared on it. It must be an invisible ink, revealed by the heat. From that moment, William thinks it is a Pirate’s document: Captain Kidd’s coded instructions to his hidden treasure… Help William find it!

The bug discovery is only a start. Help William decipher the message left by Captain Kidd! Understand the meaning of the codes used in the message, find your way to the different places, and finally dig out the treasure trunk!

Use the Hint: a shiny halo helps you to find one of the objects.

  1. Hidden Objects
    by Hazel Brewster, Canada - Sep 12th 2016

    It's not a very good game. I think it came with a package.

  2. Good way to get a headache
    by Linda Bullock, USA - Nov 7th 2010

    The graphics were dark and fuzzy, and the objects were sometimes impossible to see. They warn you to set your monitor at its brightest, but that still doesn't help. The music was annoying, although you could turn it off. The storyline didn't seem to flow well, you feel as though you are jumping around randomly. You are limited to so many clues for the whole game, then there is no way to get any more. Since the graphics are so terrible, you probably can't make it through the whole game. I had a headache after my trial period, and probably wouldn't take it even if it was free.
