Summer S’more Fan Photos

Hey all! I was out sick yesterday, but am much better and ready to rock today. I wanted to share some awesome fan photos we have received lately: Here are Hadley’s doodles (which include a sketch of me!): And this picture is from Larry B. who thought this car looks like one that Nancy would […]

Doodles and Illustrations

Sonny Joon has never been in a game until now. Several games in the past he “appears” or he is referenced, so we know very little about him. Here’s what we have gathered so far: He has had multiple jobs all over the world (CAP, SSH, RAN, VEN, DAN, TMB) He tends to leave his […]

One of our artists, Jami, worked on some Sonny Joon art in The Shattered Medallion. As an exclusive extra, she designed and illustrated this Sonny Joon comic book cover for our merchandise store. It is currently available in the posters section. We ordered a version to be sent to our office for display. Whatcha think? […]

Happy St. Patrick’s Day 2014!

Sonny Does His Research

In Ransom of the Seven Ships, Sonny’s notebook becomes very helpful to Nancy. His research notes from being out in the field, studying the terribly clever Vervet monkeys, helps you understand how to play their games, and ultimately get you rewards that you will need later. Wow, Sonny has been to this remote island in […]

Second Time Game Play

Do you ever go back to one of your already-solved mystery games to replay it? I admit I do. If you are one of the fans who owns every single Nancy Drew game, all that there is left to do while waiting for the next title, is to replay the older ones. (If you are […]

Tales of Whales

Today was are monthly burger outing, but I forgot to take a snapshot of the burger truck we visited…or that one tasty thing I ate of which I don’t remember what it was. So I found something else fun to talk about: WHALES! ‘Cause they rule. (~.^) To take a detour away from teasing you […]
