I’m hearing a lot of mixed reactions about the 31st Nancy Drew game. This teaser is found at the end of The Shattered Medallion, and is still a spoiler until tomorrow when we launch it on our YouTube Channel. So stay tuned! Or if you want to leave this next game a surprise, stay away from the internet until you are finished playing MED. 😉
Anyways, it may seem like a controversial subject at first glance, and I can see why: it’s dark, eerie, and involves a location that some may define as evil. Let me explain as best as I can (without giving any spoilers) why we are making this game.
The next game will be primarily historical/mythical themed, touching on subjects that even I was taught in school. We did draw inspiration from a specific yellow-backed Nancy Drew book, and yes, she will be traveling to this location. The best game this will compare to may be The Captive Curse or perhaps even Curse of Blackmoor Manor for the history’s sake.
To mix up the different styles of the games, we are shifting from an adventure-style game over to a myth-style game. Have you read the old yellow-back Nancy Drew books? Some books hit surprisingly dark subjects. It’s a part of Nancy’s world, and we want to maintain her style. Some books to look into include (56) The Thirteenth Pearl, (6) Secret at Red Gate Farm, and (46) The Invisible Intruder, just to name a few. While we have the opportunity to dive into different style books in Nancy’s world of mystery, we have the challenge and privilege to unfold the mystery at the end and reveal the explanations for everything mysterious. I think the most fantastical, unrealistic depth we have dived into is showing Nancy’s nightmares and visual illusions, but everything else can be rationally explained…or better yet, left UNexplained, mwahaha!
The next type of game may not be everyone’s cup of tea, and that is ok, because we are just releasing the most light-heartiest adventure ever! To satisfy both types of fans, we create all types of games. Please share your thought on the Message Board under the “Game Rumors” forum…but be sure to put the name of the game and location it will take place in spoiler code until we release the teaser on YouTube, thanks a bunch!
