FEBRUARY LETTER FROM THE CEO

LETTER FROM THE CEO

Hello Nancy Drew Gamers,

Thank you for your incredible support of our Nancy Drew PC games over the past 13 years.  It’s always been our goal at Her Interactive to create fun, high-quality and inspiring games for kids and adults of all ages.  I think you’ll agree that our games are so fun…you forget that they’re also good for you!

As you know, Nancy Drew is one of the most powerful and inspiring brands for mystery lovers of all ages, and our Nancy Drew PC Adventure Series has become a generational phenomenon, bringing together moms and daughters, aunts and nieces, grandmothers and granddaughters to enjoy empowering and inspiring interactive entertainment.

Behind the scenes, we have a great team that’s committed to making each game better than the last.  From their attention to every detail (story, characters, environments, artwork, music, sound effects, voiceovers, and animations) to their boundless dedication to our company and products, and I’m proud to say that we have truly mastered the art of creative collaboration. We take “it’s up to you as Nancy Drew!” seriously.  Everybody at Her Interactive gets involved in solving the kinds of mysteries that enable us to keep making these award-winning games. Nancy Drew always pushes herself to be the best, and I’m proud to say that’s how we work together, too!

As you may have noticed, our industry is transforming, and everything’s beginning to merge. Games, books, music, movies, platforms and exciting new devices…the traditional definition of “gaming” has been turned upside down and sideways.

These events have inspired our newest series for the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch. This new series of apps called Nancy Drew Mobile Mysteries, and our first app, Shadow Ranch, is now available on the App store. We’re melding the elements of a great mystery with the interactive experience of a video game in the form of a story-based gamebook app. In Shadow Ranch, game play, problem solving and reading are critical to solving the mystery. And, the player dictates how the story unfolds by the path they choose. There are classic game elements, such as hidden object games, mazes, word scrambles and other mini-games to solve. Yet, there is also a full-blown mystery for the player to read and absorb. We’ve paid very close attention to make sure there is a perfect balance of reading and game play so that the experience is truly unique and enjoyable. If you love Nancy Drew, you’re going to love Shadow Ranch.

Have fun! We look forward to hearing from you!

Megan Gaiser,
CEO/CSCO
