CELEBRATE THE 20TH ANNIVERSARY OF NANCY DREW GAMES
2018 Marks a Rare Milestone for Pioneering Video Game Company;
HeR Interactive Continues to Lead in the Development and Publishing of Groundbreaking Nancy Drew Series
BELLEVUE, Wash., November 15, 2018 – To celebrate the 20th anniversary of one of the world’s most popular video game series, HeR Interactive invites fans from all over the world to join us for a special Twitch stream that will highlight the game that started it all – Nancy Drew: Secrets Can Kill. During the stream, fans can win unique prizes, win free games, re-visit historic moments in the game and explore environments that helped create one of the first and still longest standing female lead characters in the video game industry.
“From the very beginning, Megan Gaiser (HeR Interactive’s CEO from 1999 to 2011) had the vision for the company to be the undisputed leader in creating high quality, fun and inspiring games for women of all ages,” said Penny Milliken, the current CEO of HeR Interactive. “Having a female protagonist in a video game in 1998 was groundbreaking. We are incredibly proud to be able to continue the legacy of this timeless character and to celebrate how Nancy Drew has influenced players to be strong, confident, smart and kind.”
“The enduring longevity of the award-winning series is attributed to our amazing fan base. We love hearing how our games have inspired fans to become female game developers, artists, writers or even pursue STEM-related careers,” Milliken continued. “HeR Interactive is also unique in that we were one of the first game companies to not only be led by a female but also encouraged and supported women in the game industry…which continues to be a major focus to this day.”
