Nancy Drew: The Secret of Shadow Ranch
“A wonderful mystery for the whole family! The best in children's games always tries to meld education with fun, and this game does that superbly, with a smooth integration of factoids about various things coupled with critical thinking activities and a fun adventure. Male or female, Nancy Drew fan or no, get this game!” ~PC GameZone
Nancy Drew: Danger by Design
“Danger by Design is just as fascinating as Minette, and far less frustrating. I highly recommend it to anyone who likes Nancy Drew, and many who like adventure games.” ~Adventure Gamers
Nancy Drew: Midnight in Salem
"For Nancy Drew fans, the game has plenty to offer, like the Hardy boys making an appearance and even letting you play as them on two occasions. I really liked the grounded grasp of the mystery instead of unreal, almost Myst-like settings of the many previous entries in the series. I also appreciated that there’s no sense of dread or urgency hanging over things (until very late into the game). Nancy Drew games are often considered as “girls’ games” but I think that conception is ancient and belongs to the past. Anyone who likes a good, relaxed crime story without excess violence is allowed to enjoy Nancy Drew: Midnight in Salem." ~Jukka Piira, Dark Station

The resident handyman at Icicle Creek Lodge is tired of the wolf disrupting his day and terrorizing guests. Shooting the wolf and mounting it on the wall will solve all of the resort’s problems, or so Ollie claims at least. Could he be using the wolf as a cover for his own personal agenda?
This egotistical Olympic cross-country skier believes his competitors are spying on him and trying to rattle his nerves. The wolf and Nancy, Yanni says, have been sent to distract him! What is so secretive about his technique that he would like to get rid of all the guests at the lodge?

Deirdre is concerned for her cousins Mei and Teegan and begins her own investigation to clear Mei’s name. When Deirdre discovers that there is more to the Hathorne Estate case than an arson, she reluctantly calls Nancy to come and help solve the mystery. Will Deirdre’s tense relationship with the famous teen sleuth hinder the case? Or is she hiding something about her cousin’s true motivations?
Mei Parry has spent her young life pulled between two extremes – the near-crushing protective attention by her parents and sister Teegan, and the cruel gazes and whispers by the local townsfolk. Mei’s mysterious past haunts her when she is accused and placed under questioning by the Salem police for the recent fire at the Hathorne Estate. Few of the townspeople are surprised and offer little support. Unfortunately for Mei, multiple scars publicly mark her mistakes of the past and results in a constant reminder that she often seeks to hide.

As an advocate for past accused witches, will Teegan take drastic measures to right the wrongs of history and protect her sister?
Constantly commanding the spotlight, Olivia Ravencroft runs a witch tour and novelty magic shop. It’s well-known locally that her smoke and mirrors entertainment is not always accurate, but it’s always very theatrical! Her self-guided tours depict Salem’s haunted past while ensuring to capitalize on the tourist trade. While Olivia uses her elaborate performances to ‘enhance’ the tourism experience, would she set fire to the Hathorne House to profit from the additional attention to her business?
As the last living person residing on the Hathorne property, Lauren claims to be the heir of the historic Hathorne House. Lauren owns an apothecary and tea shop in Salem and mixes natural remedies in the traditional methods. She has great respect for the town’s history, but would she use her expertise to unethically get what she wants?
Jason Danforth is the son of Judge Danforth. As a child, Jason loved to play in and around the infamous Hathorne House. Even though the people of Salem speculated the estate was haunted, Jason continued to visit until one day, when he was ten, he witnessed an unexplained sighting, one that haunts him to this day. As years passed, Jason enjoyed being the “it” guy in town and being both wealthy and handsome. Some say that Jason is his own biggest fan. For Jason, position has its privileges, but does his status mask the curse of his past?
Alicia Cole is a highly qualified attorney who left the big city to work with the soon-to-be-retired Judge Danforth. She loves the area and finds the smaller town environment more to her liking. However, in Salem, she must learn to deal with the occasional ‘she put a spell on me!’ case, especially behind the backdrop of a community that hasn’t come to terms with its dark and haunting past. Have the residents’ superstitions influenced Alicia’s judgment or do her ambitions run deeper than she lets on?
The well-established, yet somewhat scatterbrained, Judge Danforth is at the center of pressing legal battles in the town of Salem. The arson of the famed historic Hathorne Estate is under investigation and citizens want justice. But could Judge Danforth be harboring a hidden agenda to disrupt the investigation?
Dave is the ranch foreman. Always polite, somewhat shy, Dave is a man of business and frustratingly few words. He is truly a “modern” cowboy, into sports, music, and the outdoors. He is not above trying to use his looks to charm his way out of awkward situations.
Tex is an old-fashioned cowpoke. His cynical attitude reflects the fact that he feels much more at home with horses and cattle than with humans. He’s a terrible conversationalist (his favorite word is “nope”), and he not-so-secretly enjoys putting Nancy in situations that he thinks she can’t handle.
The ranch cook, Shorty, is more talkative than the other two ranch hands combined. He also loves to cook, and takes great pride in the food he serves. So criticizing his meals is a recipe for disaster.
This single woman is part Native American and runs a store on land that is adjacent to Shadow Ranch. Mary knows all about the history of the area and she is interested in purchasing the Ranch for herself. Is she trying to scare away the ranch owners so they’ll agree to sell it to her?

As a famed photographer, Dieter dated Minette, but the romance fizzled. He also obsessively searches for his great uncle’s lost treasure. Is he trying to get revenge for his broken heart or does he know the secrets of the moulin?
THE critical voice when it comes to fashion. A writer of nasty reviews for Glam Glam magazine, this author is unpopular and scorned as a “conceited Nichtsnutz” by some. Having the power to shape the fashion industry can corrupt and lead to some reckless behavior!
She endures the nightmare that is Minette to gain a foothold in the fashion industry. After all, the quickest way to the top is to steal trade secrets, dethrone the reigning queen, and appoint yourself as the successor.
The Queen Bee herself, Izzy is at the top of the social ladder. She’s the student body president and the life of the party. Keeping her crown as the queen of the school is no easy feat though. Is she resorting to scare tactics to keep everyone else from threatening her position at the top?
A self-professed outcast and a recluse, Mel spends most of her time disliking the social cliques in school and practicing her cello. She was automatically accepted because she comes from a long line of alumnae, but she doesn’t really want to attend Waverly. Would she send threats to the other girls to bring down the social ladder?
Leela is the all-star athlete, who is as fierce at competing academically as she is on the soccer field. With the race for valedictorian heating up and the contenders so close in rank, would Leela’s need to win at all costs drive her to make drastic plans to gain the competitive edge?
Although Corine may be the smartest of the valedictorian candidates, she doesn’t really fit in with the group. The other girls think she tries too hard to be popular and don’t include her in their parties. If Corine can’t join the ‘in-crowd’, then maybe she can get their attention in other ways…
Three weeks ago, Rachel nearly had the title for valedictorian in the bag, but then she failed a test! In order for her to regain the lead, all of the other girls would also need to fail a test or paper. Scaring the other girls with threatening notes from the Black Cat would certainly distract them from their studies…
