Hope you all had a great 4th of July! One comment in response to the previous blog post said:
And I thought “This is so true. Nancy is always destroying things or blowing stuff up…on accident that is.” I totally didn’t mean for you to go and blow up a bunkhouse or photo lab, set fire to the kitchen or go setting off alarms. That would be bad, since there is no “Second Chance” button to go back before the incident. Ouch. But if you are playing a Nancy Drew game, I would encourage you to push it to the limits and try out what would happen if you attempted to reach the gear over the balcony without help in The Final Scene or didn’t switch the correct wires at the roller coaster in The Haunted Carousel, or even press all the incorrect buttons up high above the tomb ground in Tomb of the Lost Queen.
Some of those Second Chances are rather fun to experience, and sometimes they are funny. Someone here in the office enjoys the second chance in Secret of the Scarlet Hand where you can drop the monolith dials. “It’s too heavy!” Ah, good times, and some of them: good scares. My current favorite is at the end of The Final Scene if you do not rescue Maya in time. The first time I saw that happen I gasped really hard, and might have jumped a bit. XD
We have some big things planned to come soon, and some clever detectives discovered a little bit of one of the projects, of which we will reveal later….unless you find it, too. 😉
