Cover Design Meeting + Revealed Secret

Today was a rather exciting day! We had our first kick-off meeting with the team for our next game's cover art design. I got to bring our intern in with me to see our Designer and Writer show off the game art (or what little we have, since it is still in the making and some of the environments have not even been textured yet. Which still looks pretty cool...one word to describe it: "clean" as our intern says).


We discussed previous game covers and also talked about what elements are most important to this new story. It's important what we choose to convey, to best describe the game in eye-catching images. I'm really excited! The process is just starting...and now I want to go snoop in the art files...again. (^_^)

I've decided it's only fair, while after teasing you with secrets I can't reveal,  to give you more clarity to past secrets I teased you with before. So here goes one: Remember back in Weekend Puzzle #147's answer where the answer was Nancy's Voice + Brilliance = S.P.I.E.D? I can now say that this referred  to one of the Bonus Edition's extras in Tomb of the Lost Queen. Back in April while I was trying out TMB before it was released, I had inquired about this to our Writer. He said that our Brilliant voice actress, Lani (who gives voice to Nancy Drew) also provided the voice for the recorded messages from S.P.I.E.D. Fascinating! Those little secrets that are hidden from view...love those! 

Today was operation H.A.M.B.U.R.G.E.R. where members from the team go out and explore new (and not-so-new, but good) burger places. I was super excited that this place had a really small burger, and was able to finish it in one sitting. Woot! It was little and I loved it!

Secret Mission: catch the egg culprit. Hope my plan goes well. >.>

Cool, I can`t wait to see the new cover art! I got the bonus edition of TMB, the messages were so funny! I liked the one where they said they were a pizza shop closing forever.

That's a col secret! I was trying to decipher that as well about the weekend puzzle. Any news on the egg mystery?? I've been trying to solve it by using the process of elimination and being all science-y!
