Time capsule

A few years ago, we started working on the Nancy Drew Dossier series and it was very different from the Lights, Camera, Curses game that was actually created. Back then, we just referred to to the Dossier series as ‘casual’ – meaning that it was going to be differnt from our Adventure series games, but we didn’t really know how.
Our first iterration of the game had a few arcade mini-games tied together with a story and a method of putting all the clues you collected from the mini-game together. Below is the art from our very first Dossier series prototype. You’ll never see this art anywhere else since the first prototype failed and the art was lost with it. It’s very detailed and feels a lot like the Adventure series – too much almost.
While we wanted something that was as high quality as our current games, but this was too similar. Can you think of other places in the Nancy Drew Adventures series games that look like this paining? For bonus points, guess the artist! 🙂

    It looks a lot like aunt eloise’s house in SCK to me for some reason. Bonus question: I have no idea. Mari? Rob?

    I think it look like Whit wolf (the room in general) or danger by design (the scrapbook type thing on the desk)

    I’m guessing #14, Danger By Design–Minnette’s studio?

    Thanks for the information, it was cool!

    I gave the picture the critical eye again, and I realized it looks a lot like Sonny Joon’s cartoons! Is he the mysterious artist?

    ~MysteryBook… again. 😉

    It reminds me of the White Wolf of icicle Creek the most, what with the fireplace and all. I <3 the Poppy Dada!

    The room makes me think of Mattie’s house in STD, but I see a Poppy Dada painting. I also see tea and a picture of Minette, I belive? Especially since it says France in the scrapbook. And I see a Tiki-type statue in the corner, like it’s from CRE? (:
