Dear Nancy Drew Fans,
Happy holidays everyone!
It was great to meet so many fans at the Nancy Drew Convention in Ogunquit, Maine this fall. Additionally, we hope that many of you enjoyed all our Halloween activities from the costume promotion to the pumpkin carving contest and now the annual holiday cookie contest has started in earnest as well! Each year we are amazed by our fans’ creativity and this year is no exception!
We want to take this opportunity to update you on Nancy Drew: Midnight in Salem. We are now targeting a release date of Spring 2019! We know many of you have been patiently waiting for this game, and for that, we thank you!
As you may recall, we are moving to a new engine to be able to develop a game not only for PC/Mac but also for tablets, consoles, and now for the increasing popularity of augmented or virtual reality. Very exciting! Part of us going down this path was to ensure that we have multiple platform options for future Nancy Drew titles so that all Nancy Drew game fans and those new to our games could play these amazing games no matter what their preferred device or platform.
This versatility means that the design and development of our games are even more complex than in the past. Our PC/Mac game design will work for players on the go with tablets and possibly for players that may want to immerse themselves in the mixed reality world. We are also constantly evaluating new technologies and trends in the game industry. Consequently, this is why it is taking much longer to develop this title than previous ones. This thoroughness will put HeR Interactive in a better position for the future while providing us with the tools necessary to continue to deliver amazing experiences for our fans.
As always, we greatly appreciate our fantastic community and your notes of encouragement. Thank you for continuing to introduce Nancy Drew Games to your friends and family. By helping us spread the word about our award-winning games, it ensures that we can keep the legacy of Nancy Drew Games alive and thriving.
Team HeR Interactive
