Following Clues

When solving a mystery, it is very important for the detective to keep an open mind, and to consider all logical (and crazy) possibilities. Any bit of information could be important; dates, times, speed, footprints, trash, notes, messages, a smudge on the mirror, a Koko Kringle bar wrapper in the drawer…. just about anything could be a clue to leading you to your answer. But the detective must be paying attention, and must be very observant, looking at everything. The room and everything in plain obvious sight, to the tiniest hidden detail could very well be important enough not to overlook.

What could be a clue and what could be a false lead? A little contemplation and proper judging of the clue may inspire a lead or a find. Or perhaps the detective may misinterpret the clue to mean something else entirely. A culprit can and will always leave something of value in existence, and it’s up to the detective to track that evidence down.

We here at Her Interactive like to hide clues, in both plain sight and hidden in the games, it’s just a matter of finding them, identifying them to be clues, and interpreting them correctly. Like this clue hidden in The Captive Curse:

It points to Tomb of the Lost Queen. But that’s not all on this resume…there was another clue hinting to the game after that…do you see it?

    Hey Little Jackalope! I love reading your blog and seeing what you at HeR Interactive are up to! I noticed while I was reading your post, there
    ‘s red letters containing hidden message, “A beauitful dress.” I wonder what it means? Maybe a hint to GTH or your next blog post? I can’t wait to play the game! If CAP took place in real life, I would totally solve it more than the other mysteries on the poll. Maybe CRY would be the second mystery I would solve in real life!
    I love you LJ and HeR Interactive and I would love to visit you guys one day!

    Oh and one more thing: When are you going to post a new video on YouTube? I really enjoyed Phoenix’s videos back in 2012!

    Until Next Time!

    Perhaps someday, could HeR make a list of all the clues left in games? (up to where we would not reveal anything about a new game of course). It would be fun to see what things we have found and what we still missed.

    Sonny Joon was a tour guide for Paranormal tours. Maybe he worked for Savannah? Or maybe we’ll get to talk to him on the phone, seeing as Savannah will probably be too busy to help Nancy with the investigation, so she’ll give us SJ’s phone number instead. Am I even close?

  7. Well, Little Jackalope, I definitely see a reference to TMB, BUT I also see something about Chicago in there, too! Does this mean Nancy is headed there at some point?

    The part on the file about being a Lab Assistant for the Science of Tomorrow Today in Colorado Springs was a hint to the Deadly Device, right? Wasn’t that the convention where Ryan won her award? I think it’s so funny how Sonny Joon seems to pop up in nearly all the games!

  9. Ah! Very clever!! And in SCK2 there’s a book in Aunt Elouise’s house with the names for the characters in CAP:)

    Thanks for the birthday greeting, Little Jackalope! LOVE your blog!!! 🙂

  15. @Amy — Thanks for reading and for being a great fan! As for the videos, we did post some fun ones a little while ago: An Interview with Tim, our Creative Director, The Lost Audio Files of Gummy Bear Theatre, and the lost Rap Music from Secrets Can Kill. Once we get closer to the launch for GTH, I’ll post more videos with me in them, telling you some awesome stuff about it. 🙂

    @Anonymous — Different Paranormal Tours, the mentioned was with John Grey in Last Train to Blue Moon Canyon. 😉

    @ComicalCrafty — Maybe, maybe not! Only time will tell!

    @Anonymous — Yes, that was a hint to The Deadly Device!

    @Future HeR Animator — Good eye, detective! Those were put in there on purpose for you to find. 😉

    @Elliot Chen — I make a note of it as soon as someone requests a birthday shout-out. We did have one request that was 3 months away at one point. 🙂 It goes into the birthday calendar.

    @Z — You got it!

    @Silvertongue — It means..something…from the game… (~.^)

    @MJ — It means exactly that! And that this is in connection with several other clues I’ve already left behind…

    @Anonymous/Alexis — You are welcome! Hope you had a great birthday!
