Pop-Up Notes are visual snippets of lore hidden throughout the Dark Parables world. These include signs, letters, gravestones, books, parchments, portraits, and various other pieces of ephemera. While these kinds of items are seen in all Dark Parables games, they were only considered a "Collection" in Ballad of Rapunzel and the spin-off game, Cursery: The Crooked Man and the Crooked Cat.
Since these games classify these items as something for the player to find and collect, there are an increased number of them. In both games, the notes are split into categories to make them more manageable. For Ballad of Rapunzel only, the player could earn an Achievement for finding and viewing each of the Pop-Up notes available.
Instead of showing the notes themselves here, we are simply focusing on where the items are found in the game. These pop-up notes and all other documents (diaries, signs, tombstones, etc) from all games can be found on the Archives page.
The pop-up notes in this game are spread between the main game and the bonus game, The Thumbelina Curse. The notes are pictured here in the order they are found in average gameplay. Due to The Thumbelina Curse's unusual map names, some items are labeled with the map name and, in parenthesis, the more commonly known name of the location. The Achievement for finding the pop-up notes is glitched due to the fourth Pop-up Note (located in the cemetery) not opening in the game as originally intended. Due to this, the achievement is impossible to obtain. Only a lucky few can unlock it. Plus depending on which computer you plate, the text won't be visible so you still won't get the achievement regardless.
The pop-up notes in this game are also spread between the main game and the bonus game, Humpty Dumpty. However, unlike Ballad of Rapunzel, there is no achievement for finding them all.
