TRACK DOWN A COLD CASE MURDERER IN NANCY DREW: THE DEADLY DEVICE
An Elusive Killer Shocks a High-Tech Lab in Latest PC/MAC Adventure Game from Her Interactive
BELLEVUE, Wash., October 23, 2012 – Leading video game publisher and developer Her Interactive, today announced the launch of the 27th edition of the award winning series with Nancy Drew: The Deadly Device for PC and Mac and its immediate availability in all major retail stores and at www.herinteractive.com for $19.99. In this all-new Nancy Drew adventure, fear lingers in a remote laboratory after a physicist’s suspicious demise. A police investigation has resulted in nothing except a case as cold as the secretive personalities and steel walls that enshroud the top-secret Tesla-inspired facility. That’s why the lab owner has asked you, as Detective Nancy Drew, to expose the terrifying truth about The Deadly Device!
“With Nancy Drew: The Deadly Device we set out to expand on the sense of danger and discovery that has always been at the heart of any Nancy Drew game,” stated Stuart Moulder, CEO, Her Interactive. “Our fans will truly enjoy this enhanced experience which includes integrated hints for the first time. This title represents another big step toward our goal of making our games even more accessible to players both new and established.”

“It’s an honor to pay tribute to Tesla’s legacy by highlighting his inventions in this all new Nancy Drew mystery. Nicola Tesla was a man ahead of his time and our fan base adores him,” said Megan Gaiser, Chief Creative Strategy Officer (CCSO), Her Interactive. “As with every Nancy Drew adventure, The Deadly Device offers a rich story, detailed characters and is only our second murder mystery since releasing the very first Nancy Drew title, Secrets Can Kill.””
If you take a risk that ends badly, don’t worry; you won’t have to start over. The game will automatically return players to the point before the fatal mistake.
