Game Story

Nancy Drew® Dossier: Lights, Camera, Curses!

Seek the source of sabotage on a Hollywood set!

You, as Nancy Drew, are on the set of a controversial remake of the famous 1930’s film “Pharaoh!” The studio original movie released with an alternate ending due to the untimely death of Lois Manson, the film’s star, and became a box office smash. Now, Nancy Drew is undercover on the set to get to the bottom of suspicious press leaks and uncanny accidents that have the production schedule in jeopardy. Is someone trying to sabotage the movie or is it a curse of the fallen film star in Nancy Drew Dossier: Lights, Camera, Curses!

“Nancy Drew Dossier is a good example of a well-designed hidden object casual game. The story is interesting, the puzzles challenging but not too difficult, and the game can be picked up and played very easily. Good fun!” ~PC GameZone

“Anybody can pick it up and start playing in no time, and I guarantee you’ll be hooked instantly with such a creative and clever concept. I highly recommend this game to everyone, and am already looking forward to the next installment!” ~Just Adventure

“Even though it seems like a radical departure from the original series, the Dossier series shares all the best aspects of the original. The graphics – which have a more hand-drawn style to them than the photo-realistic 3D of the originals – are beautifully crafted.” ~Gamezebo

Sabotage on the Set

This is the first Dossier game, fun, takes less attention than the Adventure series, I really enjoyed the Dossier games. For a short, entertaining game this is a good choice.

A thumb and a half up

While I did like Resorting to Danger better out of the two Dossier games, this one was still pretty darn good. I honestly did not peg who the guilty party was until well over halfway into the game. I would have liked to have seen the system for the culprit as it was in Resorting to Danger, where you had 5 choices to pick from, and each had a different ending. You must make more of these!!

One of the Best Hidden Object Games I've Played!

‘Lights, Camera, Curses!’ is one of the finest hidden object type games I’ve ever played (with Resorting to Danger, the next in this series, being the other). The plot surrounding the 'mysterious accidents' at the 'Pharaoh!' film set was engaging, the locations were amazing and the characters were quite interesting. Instead of finding random objects, you have to find two or more objects that go together in a way that makes sense to the current part of the story. The mini games make sense to the storyline too. It has major replay factor, not only because the game was just that brilliant, but also because it has an alternate ending that can be triggered. After you solve the mystery, you can go back to this game for the mini-games. I start this one up all the time just to play those.

This game truly is “Fast Fun for Busy Detectives”, as the slogan goes. I highly recommend this game. 😀

Molly McKenna

Molly McKenna is the hard-nosed producer of “Pharaoh.” She is the modern, high-tech multi-tasker who likes others to believe she’s in complete control. But with the production flailing in chaos, could she hate the director enough to ensure he never makes another movie?

Eda Brookes

Eda Brookes is an up and coming actress, and she might be a mega-star if she pulls off her first staring role. Eda is quite a talent and will make a stunning Nefertiti. But is she saving her best performance for the big screen or sabotaging the set so it will gain more publicity?

Jorge Jackson

Jorge Jackson is the newest, flashiest, big blockbuster director. No one seems to like his vision for the movie and he feels under-appreciated. Would he go so far as to sabotage his own movie just so he can get his revenge on everyone for “ruining” his movie?

Arthur Hitchens

Arthur Hitchens is the financier for “Pharaoh!” and plans on releasing the epic feature along with the original ‘director’s cut’ and new theme park. With all the disasters, he’s smartly taken out insurance for the movie and receiving money for the damages, but was this all part of the plan?
