WHO & Monday Reminders

We had a busy weekend at the WA Homeschoolers Organization convention! It was great being able to talk to new people about the Nancy Drew games, and pointing out the various different educational elements to the games. Greek mythology, Mayan cultures, forensics, chemical mixing, Marie Antoinette, ancient Egyptian history and so many more topics are lessons I have learned just by playing the games myself! What have you learned from the Nancy Drew games?

    I just want to say that Nancy Drew games has helped me in school a lot! The dozens of logic puzzles have helped me with thinking logically in classes such as math, philosophy, science etc. Also, my history teacher is always surprised at how much I know about our new topic and I always tell her that I learned it from Nancy Drew games! For example, I was able to tell a lot about Egypt (because of Tomb of the Lost Queen) and I was also able to tell about the Chinese elements because of a puzzle in Resorting to Danger! Nancy Drew has helped me a lot!

    I really enjoyed learning ancient runes in the Curse of Blackmoor Manor! And also it was neat to learn the Islandic language in the Sea of Darkness (although I may or may not have cheated by taking pictures with my smartphone…:D). There was also learning how to write in Japanese in SAW, or learning about different bug parts in the Creature of Kapu Cave (which was Nancy’s favorite, of course 😉 ).

    The educational aspect of the games is perhaps my favorite part of the Nancy Drew games! It was the only reason I could convince my mom to let me play the games when I was young 🙂

    I’m super excited for the Twitch party coming up by the way! Whoop!

    When is the “substantial update” coming? It was supposed to “very shortly” quite a while ago now…

    • Little Jackalope says:

      Hi Lumiere, I’m sorry the update hasn’t come sooner. I really don’t know the exact date of when we will have a “substantial” update to share.

      • Marian says:

        Then why was it posted on Facebook that there would be a substantial update very soon?

      • Gnillet (the real one) says:

        That is a very good question Marian. I would also like to know the answer. (Hopefully, this question is not ignored like usual . . .)

        • Little Jackalope says:

          Hello Gnillet, if I missed responding to a previous comment I apologize. I try to respond to every comment that comes in to the blog. When I have an update on MID, I will be sure to post it.

          • Gnillet (the real one) says:

            Okay, thanks. I get it, it must be hard to answer all these MID questions.
            My real frustration is with the higher-ups at HeR.

          • Little Jackalope says:

            I understand, Gnillet. All comments on the web site and blog are viewed and responded by me (Little Jackalope).

  4. Stef says:

    LJ, can you tell me when the outsourced team started to work on MID? Was it in 2015? 2016? or 2017?

    • Little Jackalope says:

      I can’t say for sure, but the initial designs and researching started around 2014. It takes a while to make a game!

    • Gnillet (the real one) says:

      Hi Stef! I can’t give you any info about when they started outsourcing MID. However, as of October 2016, Her interactive could not confirm whether any work had been done on MID since April 2015. It was only in November 2016 that they started confirming that work was actually being done.

  5. Chloe says:

    LJ, can you confirm whether an update on MID will come in 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021, or 2022

    • Little Jackalope says:

      Sorry Chloe, if I could give you a more accurate or even estimated time when MID will come out, I would.

      • Gnillet (the real one) says:

        Why can’t you could say something like “surely before 2022” or “we promised an update ‘very shortly’ which shouldn’t take five years to follow through on.”

        • Gnillet (the real one) says:

          *Why can’t you say

        • Little Jackalope says:

          Hi again Gnillet. I can’t give any definite answer until we have a better idea when the game will be done. If you hadn’t heard about the game engine switch, please understand that a change in our process like this will take time. I don’t know the exact amount of time it will take.

          • Gnillet (the real one) says:

            All right, thank you, I understand. But then you shouldn’t say an update is coming “very shortly”, if you can’t even confirm that there will be an update within the next five years.

          • Little Jackalope says:

            Hello again Gnillet. I cannot confirm anything at this time. We still hope to have an update soon. We are not 100% certain which date that update will be.

          • Gnillet (the real one) says:

            And when I say “you” I mean HeR in general (not you specifically.)

          • Gnillet (the real one) says:

            And thank you Little Jackalope for responding.

        • Em says:

          We’re all impatient and frustrated, but i don’t see how it’s helpful to harass those who have no power to make the game release come quicker. “Don’t shoot the messenger”, and all that. I seriously doubt that it’s possible to make our desire for a new game any clearer. js.

          • Gnillet (the real one) says:

            You’re right Em, I apologize if I seemed harsh, all I wanted was to seek clarification. To say there’s an update coming very shortly, and then being unable to confirm if there will be an update within the next 5 years, is really baffling to me. I actually won’t be playing/purchasing MID when it is released. But I like to follow things through to the end and I want to see this whole thing with MID be finished so I can have peace of mind. (And as I already mentioned, I meant “you” as in a general sense, i.e. the higher-ups at the company who DO have the power to do something.)

    ND games are actually listed as credits in my home school portfolio.

    BTW, can I get a b-day shout out for Jodi, age 23, and Alaya, age 3, on the 17th? [Jodi has played White Wolf, and Alaya likes Hawaii (so, maybe something Kapu Cave)]
    Thank You! 🙂

    is mid going to be produce it is already june and no news

  8. Nancy Drew Games are one of the best game in the town and the best part is that they are very helpful and contains knowledge.
    It helps the younger brother to solve puzzles, find out the solutions and helps him to increase his thinking.
    Thanx a lot for making such a wonderful game.
