Various things react when you mouse over them:

  • When you move across the door, it will slam shut and the audio clip will start.
  • Hover over parts of the far wall to make them collapse onto the floor.
  • Hover over the bedpost to make dust puff out.
  • Hover over the curtain on the bed and a pale spider will pop out and then reel itself back in.


When the door slams, a clip from the audiobook will play.

Once this is complete, you can hear the Shrieking Shack creaking.
