A Few Updates and Cover Art on the Horizon
Hello everyone, I apologize for the surprise down time with the Message Boards over the weekend. Our main web site was encountering some issues and the forums needed to be backed up as well. We are working to fix the issue, and appreciate your patience as we get this remedied.
As for pre-orders for Midnight in Salem – we still have physical copies available! The Extended Download Service (EDS) really only applies to the digital download copies. If you pre-order the digital download copy of the game, you will have 30 days from December 3rd to download. The EDS extends this allowance to 5 years. So if you don’t save your digital game to a jump drive or DVD, then this may be a good option for you.
As for payments, your debit or credit card will be checked for funds, so you may see an incomplete transaction on your bank account, but the payment will not process until the game is released. If you pay with Paypal, the charge will go through right away.
Head’s up! We will be revealing the official cover art for the game on Halloween – live on our Twitch show!
Be sure to follow us here to get the alert when we go LIVE.
I noticed that the latest screenshot release is no longer featured on the main page nor is it on the MID page. What happened?
Hi Emerald! Thank you so much for alerting me to this. This was not supposed to happen, I will go fix this!
You know what, I think Tess should be Lori Girard from Last Train To Blue Moon Canyon for Halloween on the Twitch Stream since she does her voice so well, LOL! All she needs is a white winter hat, a white long sleeve shirt ,a pink vest and long white pants!!!
Thank you for the info and updates, LJ! I was one of your customers who was confused about the EDS in my cart when ordering the physical game. I got it ironed out with CS. Now I’ll know for future orders.
Excited for the Halloween Twitch streaming one my favorite Nancy Drew games and chatting with fellow ND fans! Will you be wearing a costume?
I think you should be Charlotte LJ!!!
That would be awesome! If only I had the time and skills to sew a great dress!
I am still not able to access the message boards. Is there still an issue and is there an eta as to when they will be back up?
Hello Huge Fan, I’m sorry the boards are still down. The boards were causing problems with the main site due to its large size, and we are still trying to get them to work. 🙁 I do not have an estimate when the fix will be done. So sorry!
I’m sorry, but these updates are unacceptable. You know as well as I do we’ve waited four year and Her just expects us to act like nothing is wrong. Why won’t Her tell us why we are waiting so long?
Hello Josh, we don’t expect you or other fans to act like nothing is wrong. Four years is indeed a really long time to wait for a single game, and I apologize for the long wait and extended delay. Like I mentioned, we want to make sure as many bugs are taken care of before we release the game, and the cause for the four years is because of our switch to a different engine, which resulted in re-designing and re-doing all the base elements, format, art, functionality and more. I only hope the game will meet your expectations and is enjoyable.
is nancy bedroom going be feature as she has a bedroom to stay at in this game.
Hello Susan! Sadly, Nancy’s room will not be featured in Midnight in Salem this time. 🙁
thank you very much, i am going miss it so much.
there are 3 comments not 4, mine was deleted.
Message boards still down?!
Hello Dee! Sadly, yes, the message boards are still down. 🙁 I’m not sure when this will be fixed yet. So sorry!
thank you very much, i am going much.
When will the message boards be up?
Hello LJ Smith, I’m sorry the boards are still down. 🙁 I do not know when we will have it fixed, yet.
If i order a physical copy and get the extended download service as well, would i still be able to put THAT (the EDS) on a jump drive or dvd in case of emergencies
Hello Jamie! There is no need to purchase the Extended Download Service if you order a physical game. 🙂 The EDS is on our end, and saves a copy to our own servers. Since you would have the hard copy, there is no need to have a backup. If you ordered the digital download and uninstalled the game without saving it to a hard drive, the game may be lost. It would be at that time the EDS would be handy, so you can re-download your copy from our store.
Are the message boards still down?
Hello TC! Sadly, yes, the boards are still down. 🙁 I do not know when they will be fixed, yet.
Just bought a new laptop in anticipation for game release! Sadly, I’ve learned none of my current Nancy Drew games will play on new MacBook Pro because they are 32-bit apps. Would you pls confirm Midnight in Salem will be 64-bit, thus compatible with macOS Catalina?
Hello Dee_H, yes – MID will be 64-bit and will play on the new Mac operating systems.
is there going be a tutorial in this game since nancy bedroom is gone.
Will you be updating any of your latest games to be compatible with Catalina. At least maybe the last 2 or 3 would be nice. I’ve played them but like to replay them every now and then but can’t since the Macs have been updated.
Just making sure that the message boards.
Will you be updating any of your latest games to be compatible with Catalina? I’ve played them but like to replay them every now and then but can’t since the Macs have been updated. Especially since I have purchased all from trail of twister onwards. When can I expect to be able to play them again? Especially now that we are in quarantine? Thanks.
Hi Madeline! We don’t have any plans to remaster or re-release our older mysteries. I’m sorry Apple has now restricted 32-bit games on their operating system. If we find a work around to get our older games to run, we will post it to our site. In the meantime, check out our latest update on the matter here.
