You'll have the ability to pick out most clues by just interacting with them, but sometimes you'll need to activate Sherlock's Concentration Mode to pick out finer details. You can use Concentration Mode at any time on people or random things around Cordona, but objects marked with a wavy white circle carry the most significance, and will likely assist in an investigation.

Sometimes using Concentration Mode on an item or person will trigger an extended event. In the early Ghosts of the Past case, for example, by picking up a certain item you will find a subtle trail caused by a broken shoe dragging along the ground. Your Concentration mode will help you recreate the path and ultimately lead you to the next clue.

Hey there! I'm Nick. I've been a gamer since I was a tiny lad sitting about three feet from my SNES playing Mega Man X and Zelda (A Link to the Past). I dip my toes into most genres but always find my way back to open-world RPGs and story-driven single-player titles. I love to write and consider myself lucky to spend my days working on content I truly enjoy.
