Dress Like a Detective

I didn't get the chance to talk much about the Nancy Drew Costume prize! For those of you just tuning in, we have two contests attached to pre-ordering The Deadly Device (you can pre-order either the physical or digital to be automatically entered). Everyone who pre-orders the game during the pre-order period (September 17 -- October 22) will be automatically entered into the Adventure Matters contest, but if you choose to pre-order before October 16th will also be entered to win a Nancy Drew costume seen here:


While there are several different looks that you can create to look like Nancy Drew (Nancy never just wears one outfit, she's always styling something vintage or cute or practical), we chose to go with a look that many fans can identify from the 2007 movie cover. But we made it a little more fun by adding a magnifying glass and a silver heart locket (do you remember Nancy having a locket from Ned in The Phantom of Venice?). My absolute favorite part of this ensemble is the vintage-looking messenger/sleuth bag. In fact, I may just get one for myself...'cause I love it so much. >.< To learn a little more about these contests, click here!

Nice work, detectives, on solving this weekend's puzzle! If you have familiarized yourself with Binary code, then you'll know what each column represents: The 1s place is to the far right, and then you work your way to the left, doubling the value each time. It could go on! See example below:


Each colored/filled-in magnifying glass means you need to include that number and add them all up to get a final value. For example: the first row has a filled magnifying glass in the 1s, 2s, and 8s column. Add up those numbers and you will get 11. This letter in the alphabet is K. Once you have added up all the numbers and identify all the correct letters, you should get this answer: [Koko Kandy], and this is what I've been thinking about recently. Did I mean it was the real deal? Maybe...but then I have been working with a lot of images lately... ;)

Can you maybe put the costume in the merch store for people who are not pre-ordering or for those who didn't win the contest?
