Nancy Drew PC Series Headlines Launch of Steam Family Games Channel

Bellevue, WA, July 17, 2009 – Her Interactive, Inc., the designer, developer and distributor of the award-winning Nancy Drew PC game series, and Valve Corporation (Valve), a developer of leading-edge technologies and software, today announced an agreement to offer Nancy Drew games via Steam, Valve’s leading platform for digital content distribution and management with over 20 accounts worldwide.

Featuring over 750 core game titles, Steam now features an expansive selection of Family Games headlined by a slate of award-winning Nancy Drew PC games that appeal to the female audience. The Nancy Drew titles are available now and feature a variety of great promotional discounts to inaugurate the occasion.

“Nancy Drew has been an inspiration for generations of women, and the PC games have become the modern day equivalent of the books that are encouraging the leaders of tomorrow,” said Megan Gaiser, president and CEO of Her Interactive. “We are thrilled to partner with Valve to help launch their Family Games channel and do so with the one of the best-selling PC game franchises for women of all ages.”

“Steam has become a leading destination for core gaming enthusiasts around the world,” said Doug Lombardi, VP of marketing at Valve. “With the addition of the legendary Nancy Drew series headlining the launch of our Family Games Channel, the platform is now positioned to expand into the casual and family game genres, and bolster audience growth as we prepare for the holiday season.”

Once a user opens an account with Steam, they can sign in from any PC to access their Steam-distributed Her Interactive games. Because games are associated with accounts and not personal PCs, Nancy Drew fans can access their favorite game anytime, from any computer.
