Old Tricks and New Craftiness

Hope you all had a great weekend, for many of you students this means school is either out already, or will be out soon. Yay, summer!

I wanted to share with you something one of our Twitter fans, Maddie J. has made from The Captive Curse. It looks SOOO cool! I love it! (^_^) Thanks for sharing Maddie!


I think something like this would go great with a "I came to see the creature, but all I got was this lousy T-shirt" t-shirt (I have this, it's amazing), which is available in our Merchandise Store.

Speaking of merchandise...today is the last day to enter our Facebook Caption Contest featuring an image of Phoenix, for a chance to win this Tomb of the Lost Queen pillowcase! Head over and post the best caption!

Puzzle solved! Congrats on the sleuths who cracked this one! If you have learned about fingerprints from playing Treasure in the Royal Tower (or elsewhere), you would remember that fingerprints [start prominent (or dark) and leave less oil as the finger is used.] So the most recent/first press of a button would be [the darkest, and the last press would be the lightest print]. You'd also have had to identify the grid, which is on your [keyboard number pad (likely on your right)]. Writing down the correct numbers you gather from the prints, use the alt button to punch in the code. You can do this on a word document of any kind. Example: Hold down the "ALT" key and type 0116 to get the letter "t". Once you have gotten all of the correct letters, it spells "[Teslascope]", a rather interesting word contributed by our Designer.

I'm very interested in Nikola Tesla and I find his work very..diverting. I'm sure thats who's in the new game(even though I refuse to watch the video yet) I can't wait to see who wins! Plus,I'd love one of those "I came to see the monster..." shirts. :)

From me,

Hey, Little J, Did you know about, and play ND games before you started working there?

@Anonymous -- Yes, I had been playing Nancy Drew games since Message in a Haunted Mansion came out, many years before I started working here. I was a fan first. ;)
