Historical Characters (Spoilers!)

So the TXT CHALLENGE #3 description mentioned that the trivia was about characters and historical figures. To be more accurate, we said this to properly give credit to one of the answers: Nikola Tesla, who is not just a character. He was a real historical person, not someone who was made up.

~And it's his birthday today!!! Happy Birthday Nikola Tesla!!~


I'm looking forward to sharing with you more about our next Nancy Drew mystery that includes him in the story. (If you want to jump ahead of the rest of the detectives, I recommend doing a little research, since he is in fact a real person, and the Internet is full of fun information!) You could possible learn more about the actual deadly device, which is what we call it in the game.

I'm so excited! It's been a while since we've had another historical figure to center on. Edgar Allen Poe, Harry Houdini, Marie Antoinette were all great people to learn about, and honestly....I had personally never heard of Nikola until our design team decided on ND#27! (Learn something new every day!)

Until then, you can watch the preview to ND#27 on our YouTube Channel.

Tesla is amazing! I've been researching him and he is really intresting! The man was truly OCD but in kind of a cool way! I really hope there is a puzzle with the number 3 involved seeing that it was his favorite number! Happy Birthday, Nikola Tesla!

I love the inclusion of historical characters in the ND games! That plus the lush 3D environments make me feel like I'm really there in the game - only if I were there, I'd bring a lock pick so that Nancy wouldn't have to keep telling me that all the doors are locked. :)

Yeah, and July 10 was his day or something... I so like it when ND games center on a real character!

Yay! I love history...it makes the game seem so much more probable. The games centered around historical figures have been my all time favorites. Pretty excited!

I really like it when history is included in a game, like the ones you mentioned, or SSH learning about the Mayans. I think I will just have to look that up as you suggested. I'm so excited!

I've known about Nikola Tesla for awhile. He's a very interesting man and I love his inventions,even though some may be deadly. I'm pretty sure the light bulb in the barn in CLK in his. What game is Harry Houdini,or Edgar Allen Poe??

I'm so excited that you are doing another historical character, especially someone as interesting as Nikola Tesla! I really love the games that have such great history woven into them :)

I was playing Poptropica (a online game) and there was a mystery involving many great inventors including Harry Houdini and Nicola Tesla!!! Cool right?

@Silvertongue -- Harry Houdini was featured in The Final Scene, and Edgar Allen Poe was featured in Warnings at Waverly Academy. :)

@Rtum -- Totally!!

So, uh, I kinda saw on Wikipedia a little while ago that you were going to do The Phantom of Pine Hill. Is that going to be happening anytime soon? Can you say??
