One of my favorite things about the first summer I worked for Her Interactive was all the snooping I did in the office! During lunch breaks, before work, and after work, sooooo many opportunities for snooping. Now, I wasn’t as bold and brazen as Nancy. Other people’s offices were off limits. I was not about to be the first summer intern to be fired! I had a pretty good feeling I wouldn’t get a second chance. My bags would be packed faster than Shorty could say “vegetables.”
Now some of the places I *did* snoop in were the endless puzzle shelves in the kitchen, the numerous bookshelves in our little library, the replica of Nancys’ room Little Jackalope made, the art of foley/sound effect room, and the testing room with hundreds of computer games people brought in to play.
Some of the cool things I found and got to keep at the end of my internship were quite a few books used for game research, a Desperate Housewives sims-style computer game (it made me giggle so much), and THIS!
Look familiar? It served as inspiration for the otter puzzle in Haunting of Castle Malloy! I absolutely loved the puzzle in the game, it’s probably one of my top 5 favorite puzzles in Nancy Drew games! I would be a little embarrassed if I admitted how long it took me to actually finish the puzzle in real life though. If I remember correctly someone had to eventually tell me which piece went into one of the corner spots to help jump-start the solution!
So what does the clue crew think? Should share with you some of those books I got to take home with me? And before I forget, here in weekend puzzle 374!
