Spring and Sandwiches

It’s a quiet Monday here in the office. Except for this morning when the springtime birds where chirping up a fierce conversation – as if they had so much to say and catch up on since their return from winter. Do you have birds outside talking more since spring has arrived?

We shared this wonderful moment from Nancy Drew: Danger on Deception Island, which I’m excited to stream next week on Twitch.

Nancy Drew Mystery Adventure GamesAs for the weekend puzzle, it was semaphore flag code. Translated it says “Whales Rule!”

    Haha yeah, annually we get a little family of Robins nesting in our tree.

    Currently the new couple chirps hysterically at my dog whenever she goes outside, lol!

    Hi LJ! Would you be able to do a birthday shout-out for my brother Bobby? His birthday’s this Saturday April 1st and he will be 24. Thank you!

    I live near a forest, so I see a lot of cardinals, chickadees and robins in the winter ๐Ÿ™‚ Only since the beginning of March have they started singing.

    Hi LJ ๐Ÿ™‚ I know you’re all probably tired of all the MID questions, but I think even just a tiny bit of information would help relax the fans. So, my questions are 1. Is there any game development going on in your offices right now? and 2. Can we expect any updates at all on MID by the end of the year? I really hate to be a bother but it’s so discouraging as a longtime fan to be checking for updates every week for 2 years and being left in the dark.

    • Little Jackalope says:

      Hi Katie. I would love to give more information about the game, even some reassurance in better details, but we just don’t have any news to share. I don’t really know when to even expect updates, or even when we plan on getting updates. When I have any bit of news to share, I will be sure to post it on the blog. It will also be on the web site, and social media sites, too!

      • Liza says:

        why don’t you have any news to share?

        • Little Jackalope says:

          Hello Liza, I don’t have any news to share because I haven’t been given any. As far as I am aware, there is no news to share. Perhaps in the future we will.

          • Lily says:

            “Perhaps”?? That sounds a bit uncertain, don’t you think?

          • Liza says:

            Have you ever asked if there’s news to share?

          • Little Jackalope says:

            Yes, I have. There is no news to share at this time. Sorry!

          • Abby says:

            Then I want to know since you are given the news to share, does it matter to your superiors that fans are asking about it again and again? I understand this must be frustrating for you as well as for fans, but is anyone other than you at HeR seeing these requests?

            This would help me understand why you aren’t given any news to share on the project on which HeR is supposedly focusing.

          • Little Jackalope says:

            Hello Abby. Yes, three other team members are reading and responding to all incoming feedback, comments, and emails. All of us reply with the same answers when we have news to share. At this time, we do not have any details, behind-the-scenes facts, or news about the progress of the next game. When we have news, we will share it on our web site, the blog, and all our major social media pages.

    Hey LJ! For a weekend puzzle in the near future could you do one of those things where there are close-ups of a background from a game and we try to recall what game it is from?

    • Little Jackalope says:

      Hi Elijah! It has been awhile, hasn’t it? I’ll do that this weekend! ๐Ÿ™‚ Glad you enjoy those!

  6. Khloe says:

    Hi Lj,

    I was just wondering what’s it like working for :Penny Milliken?

    • Little Jackalope says:

      Hello Khloe, I join her for weekly meetings and sometimes work on some documents for her, but otherwise I don’t have much to share. Why do you ask?

      • Khloe says:

        We don’t get to see her/know much about her/find out what kind of person she is as much as we did with Megan Gaiser. She was really open to interacting with fans and giving us a sneak peek into what goes on behind the scenes. What a wonderful person! We don’t know Mrs. Milliken. Maybe she is the type of woman who likes to remain private. That is why I was wondering what she is like to work with. What kind of person is she?

        • Little Jackalope says:

          I see. Not everyone likes to be a public figure, and I’m sure Penny has a lot of important things to do behind the scenes. Out of privacy, I won’t say any more about the team without their permission.

          • Khloe says:

            Ok great. Can you please ask her then, that would be great! Because we don’t have any way to communicate with her. Thanks in advance, and look forward to hearing from you soon!

          • Kim says:

            I think it would be super cool if you could do like small weekly bios for the HeR team…would that be possible? I know that you all are rather busy, but as a long time fan I would love to know more about the HeR team! It doesn’t have to be anything big…maybe just name/fav ND game/fav hobby/what they do in the office. If that’s not possible, we understand <3 What do you think, LJ?

          • Little Jackalope says:

            Hi Kim! We used to do those things, but not this year. I was interviewed in the Unlocked! Nancy Drew Podcast – does that count?

          • Jackson says:

            Have you thought of doing an interview with Penny Milliken on the podcast. It would only take an hour at most of her time, and maybe it will would be seen as a goodwill gesture to the fans.

            Penny does industry speaking engagements and panels, it is a shame she does not speak also with the customers or see them as important ๐Ÿ™

          • Little Jackalope says:

            Hi Jackson. We have not considered this yet, since she has been interviewed already in the Codes & Clues behind the scenes video on the YouTube channel. If you are interested, here’s one of those videos. And here’s Penny being interviewed on the local morning show New Day Northwest.

    I can’t wait till the next Twitch party so excited. Thank you so much for playing the games you guys are awesome.The look on her face is priceless.

  8. Happypuppyharley says:

    Wait was does it say? It’s blank for me. I must know! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Little Jackalope says:

      It’s in “spoiler code.” Simply click and highlight the white space to reveal the word. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  9. Milly says:

    Hi LJ! Are you allowed to tell us if all the voices have been recorded for MID yet?

    • Little Jackalope says:

      Hi Milly, I can’t say, but I think a couple characters at least have been recorded – but that could’ve been for the teaser trailer.

      • Milly says:

        Thanks! I think you’re right that at least some of the characters have been recorded for the game (not just the trailer). I was wondering because I read somewhere that the voice actress Kiki Penoyer (who I think voices Jenna?) said the characters were already voiced. But I’m guessing that this was before you guys decided to make all those changes.

  10. Milly says:

    I have some pet birds and they are so loud! They always try to ‘talk’ to the birds they hear outside. I’m basically used to it by now but when I first got them it was so hard to concentrate with all the noise. I could barely even read!

  11. Teresa says:

    Have you or any of the staff met the New Nacy drew?

    • Little Jackalope says:

      The only actresses and actors I’ve met are Jonah Von Spreekin, Rob Jones, the ladies who play Bess and George, and the lady who played Bridgette in SPY.
