The Eyes of Ara: Haunted Halloween Achievements Guide

The Haunted Halloween seasonal event is available from October 27 to November 2 each year. The event can be enabled (or disabled) from the main menu.

During the event, the castle is littered with Halloween themed decorations. There are two Halloween achievements. One for extinguishing all 18 blue pumpkins scattered around everywhere, and the other for solving the puzzle door to Pumpkin Lord’s Tomb.

It’s recommended you finish the main game first so you have full access to the castle (and its secret areas) before going for these achievements.

Fear Himself (statues)

Find a way into the Pumpkin Lord’s Tomb during the Haunted Halloween seasonal event.

STATUE HINTS

There are four gargoyle statues (one in each chapter) that serve as hints to unlocking the door to Pumpkin Lord’s Tomb. Each statue has a skull that will change its eyes when turned to a particular direction. I’m not sure if visiting these hints and rotating the skulls is necessary, maybe the door will unlock with the right code whether or not you mess with the statues.

The statues are found in the following locations:
Chapter 1 – in the secret area beyond the caged area in the main foyer.

Chapter 2 – Lady Catherine’s secret room. Go to the hidden area behind the bookcase in the reading area and then through loose brick wall.

Chapter 3 – In the cellars, through the second set of grates (not brewery ones).

Epilogue – Top of the tower.

Summary:
Statue 1 – skull has both eyes lit up when pointed east
Statue 2 – skull has the right eye lit up when pointed north
Statue 3 – skull has the left eye lit up when pointed northeast
Statue 4 – skull has neither eye lit up when pointed northwest

TOMB LOCATION

With all the hints in hand, return to your boat (still remember it?) to find the tomb.

Go up to the door and rotate the four skulls according to the statue hints.

Enter the tomb to the achievement!
