With all the excitement we had over our last game, Ghost of Thornton Hall, it was quite easy to forget the old secrets hinted at for this year. Remember the old post 13 Hints for 2013 in January? There was one hint that I forgot to answer for GTH…
Hint #7: Talent. This vague hint given at the beginning of the year was referring to Harper in Ghost of Thornton Hall. The actress who voiced Harper was the same person who brought life to Professor Hotchkiss in Treasure in the Royal Tower, Legend of the Crystal Skull, and more recently, Tomb of the Lost Queen. She’s been a favorite to many since the early days, and we were excited for her performance as crazy Harper.
Now, there are at least two more hints from January that point toward the next mystery: The Silent Spy. One I can reveal at the moment:
Hint #6: Whistling. While our Design team comes up with a brand new story and mystery for Nancy each game, they do their research ahead of time and take a look at inspiring Nancy Drew books. One inspiring book for the design of The Silent Spy was, of course, “The Clue of the Whistling Bagpipes”. This book has Nancy traveling back to her own country where she plays bagpipes at a few points to communicate across a distance.
Here is where we stand with our 13 hints/clues checklist:
More spy stuff to come!
