I’m super excited because today is the first day of spring! Here’s a sample of what our spring here looks like during lunchtime at the office:
On a new note, I’ve seen questions from you come up inquiring about Nancy Drew game marathons in preparation for our next game release. There are three types of marathons that come to my mind, personally…
1. The Classic Marathon — ALL THE GAMES!
This is where players see if they can re-play all of the Nancy Drew games before the release date of the newest Nancy Drew game. This pretty much requires that you have all the games (that are available) and can find time to play that many. Play these in numerical order, starting with #1.
2. Similar Games Marathon
Another marathon you could participate in is a “similar games” marathon. This means any other other Nancy Drew games that may feel similar in game play to the new title. It might be hard for you to determine the style of game play for The Shattered Medallion because, well, you simply haven’t played it yet. From my perspective, the games that would most match the game play style or even small similarities for MED are these: Ransom of the Seven Ships, Danger by Design, Secret of the Scarlet Hand, Tomb of the Lost Queen. You can play these in any particular order, but I highly recommend playing RAN last.
3. Themed Marathon
This one can be very similar to the “Similar Games Marathon”. The theme, for example, of The Shattered Medallion is a “medallion”. There are other Nancy Drew games that feature medallions, such as Treasure in the Royal Tower and The Captive Curse. If you’d like to broaden the theme to include other games, you could add Secret of the Scarlet Hand and Tomb of the Lost Queen for their relics and antiques and generally old treasures (that are not exactly gold or precious stones).
So what kind of marathon are you most excited about participating in? Many members on the message board put together marathons that you could follow and participate in. I myself would recommend playing all titles that you have not yet played before. But if you have ALL of the Nancy Drew games…may I present to you the option to participate in the Amateur Sleuth Game Marathon!
These are the games I recommend playing before pre-orders for The Shattered Medallion end: Treasure in the Royal Tower, Secret of the Scarlet Hand, Danger by Design, The Captive Curse, Tomb of the Lost Queen, and Ransom of the Seven Ships. I also scheduled in a weekend to re-watch all of our YouTube trailers before the MED trailer is released.
We have a spring birthday!
