Hardy Boys + Scooby-Doo! (Weekend Puzzle #248)

HARDY BOYS CONFIRMED: Our character designer has re-designed the art for Frank & Joe Hardy! This illustration will be their phone avatar in Labyrinth of Lies.

What do you think? Compare to the last two designs from Last Train to Blue Moon Canyon and The Creature of Kapu Cave:

Also, here is the video that intern Dahlia worked on this week. It involves me dressing up as some familiar characters…lol.

We have a couple of birthdays to celebrate:

    I LOVE the new design for Frank and Joe! It’s by far my favorite! I also love the song. It’s pretty awesome.
    The puzzle is…
    “I don’t see a ‘you must be this old to solve a crime’ sing anywhere.”

    Weekend puzzle:

    I don’t see a “you must be this old to solve a crime” sign anywhere.

    I like the newest rendering of the Hardy Boys. Kudos to the computer modeling crew.

    Oh LJ and Dahlia! Thank you thank you SO much for performing our ND fan song! 😀 😀
    When I went to YouTube to catch the Friday video I was so excited to see Sleuthin’ Nancy Drew! You two made our day! 😀

    I love the Hardy boys in TRN and maybe you guys might make a game where you play as the boys again? I love the Hardy boys in the TV show have you seen it its very, very good.

    • Little Jackalope says:

      Yep! I have seen every episode from the 1970s TV series, as well as a couple episodes from the Canadian show in the 90s. 🙂

    Now the real question is . . are the Hardy Boys gonna actually be in the game or just people you call?

  11. Nancy says:

    I love the inclusion of the Hardy Boys in the games, but how many times are they going to change their look? I can only suspend my disbelief so much..

    Looking forward to this game though, hope they have another one like Last Train where we can work with them again.

    • Little Jackalope says:

      They were different animators and illustrators each time, so we took the opportunity to try new looks for the Hardys.

    lj I always get the hardy boys mixed up can you tell me which one is which? I know one has a crush on nancy but that’s it.

    The the latest design for those Hardy boys. I hope they get to be more involved in the games soon, like they were in Last Train. Can’t wait!

    I like the new design for F+J. I think my favorite is still the one from TRN, but this new one is definitely better than CRE. 🙂
    Looking forward to talking to them in the game!

    I liked the Kapu Cave models better, but these are still awesome.

  17. Megan says:

    I agree with hannah that I liked Frank better in TRN. New Frank is okay, but he has an awkward mustache shadow and looks like he just got an eyebrow wax. 😉

  18. Marianne says:

    They look amazing! That’s exactly how I’ve always imagined them! I really like Frank’s jacket, too.

    Do the charactesr in the games have to change every time there is a new artist???
    I really like this look for Frank and Joe, but the older version of George the one in Alibi In Ashes I like that one the most so when I saw her in the Shattered Medallion I was disappointed!

    • Little Jackalope says:

      The characters have to be updated when we use new software or programs or when we increase the game resolution, so we take the opportunity to try improving their looks, and give them new outfits and such. 😀
