Apple / macOS

Games #22 – #32 with 32-bit programs are no longer supported by 2019 and subsequent Apple versions Catalina, Big Sur, Monterey, Ventura, or later. Games #33 Midnight in Salem and #34 Mystery of the Seven Keys are not affected by this change and will run on Apple’s latest OS. More information here.

Identify your system’s macOS Version



We know Nancy Drew game compatibility must be on a lot of your minds with the release of Windows 11.

Microsoft has indicated that Windows 11 has the same base code as Windows 7, 8, & 10 and therefore all games that work on Windows 7, 8, & 10 should work on Windows 11.
