Her Interactive Kicks Off Pre-Sell for Remastered Nancy Drew: Secrets Can Kill
In celebration of Nancy Drew’s 80th anniversary, Her Interactive is re-releasing their first game in the award-winning adventure series, Nancy Drew: Secrets Can Kill. Pre-sell orders begin today at the Her Interactive website (www.herinteractive.com/). But, as with any good Nancy Drew mystery, all is not as it seems. Her Interactive also reveals the title will feature a brand-new ending, in addition to updated graphics, characters, puzzles, and other 80thanniversary-inspired items.
“Whether you played the original, or are looking for your first Nancy Drew game, this game has something for everyone,” says Megan Gaiser, CEO of Her Interactive. “What better way to celebrate the anniversary of an icon than to revisit the game that started it all 12 years ago? Fans won’t be disappointed with the full 3-D graphics, new puzzles, vintage Nancy Drew references and of course, a new ending to put a completely fresh spin on a classic gaming adventure.”
When Jake Rogers is murdered and the killer escapes, Nancy Drew steps in to unravel the mystery and uncover the secret that was supposed to die with him. In pure Nancy Drew style, you must follow the clues, solve the puzzles, question the suspects – including a new one, and ultimately expose the culprit when all others have failed.
In addition to the game’s new look, this Secrets Can Kill also features a completely re-mastered soundtrack that provides an even more immersive game-playing experience. Throughout the game, there are references to past Nancy Drew games and books, such as vintage artwork and game titles. Unlike the original, this re-mastered version can also be played on Mac computers. And, as a thank you to the fans, the developers included fan-created, Nancy Drew-inspired artwork to many of the game environments.
Nancy Drew: Secrets Can Kill REMASTERED will launch at retail on August 24th at a suggested retail price of $19.99, but pre-sell orders are being taken now at www.herinteractive.com. The game is available in a dual format disc, playable on both Windows® PCs and Apple® Mac computers. The game is rated E10+ with Violence, Drug Reference.
