NO VACATION FOR NANCY DREW THIS SUMMER AS HER INTERACTIVE ANNOUNCES NANCY DREW DOSSIER ‘RESORTING TO DANGER’
Second Title in Casual Game Series Debuts Online & At Retail This August
Bellevue, WA, July 2, 2009 – With the casual game market for women one of the driving forces behind the tremendous expansion of video games into the mainstream, Her Interactive, the designer, developer and distributor of the award-winning Nancy Drew PC games, today announced the second title in its hit Nancy Drew Dossier series, Resorting to Danger. Available for online download and retail purchase this August, Resorting to Danger follows the winning formula of its predecessor by integrating easily accessible gameplay with a captivating mystery.
As Megan Gaiser, president and CEO of Her Interactive, explains: “Our games have such resonance with women of all ages due to the sense of empowerment they feel from being as brilliant as Nancy Drew. We believe the traits that define Nancy – gutsy, intelligent, independent – are imparted to players on a very subtle level and ultimately act to increase self-esteem and instill confidence. So with all the games that are ‘good for you’ like fitness games and brain games, we’re glad we can offer a game that’s good for the soul.”
In Resorting to Danger, players assume the role of Nancy Drew as she sets out to foil a prankster bent on sabotaging the Redondo Spa. The Redondo Spa is a sanctuary to the rich and famous and with clients’ retreats in jeopardy, Nancy goes undercover as a general assistant to unearth clues, interview suspects and solve daunting puzzles in order to determine who is planting bombs at the spa. With six alternate endings, players can tackle Resorting to Danger again and again from different approaches and scenarios.
Nancy Drew Dossier is a next-generation casual game series that combines a seek-and-find mechanic with a new level of compelling story-driven gameplay involving detective work, sophisticated interaction with clues and characters, brain-teasing puzzles, and arcade mini-games. Playing from the point of Nancy Drew, players find hidden clues and use their strengths of observation, deduction, and problem-solving to uncover culprits and schemes in a heavily story-driven plot.
Resorting to Danger will be available this August at retailers nationwide and for download online at www.HerInteractive.com for a suggested retail price of $19.99.
