Preparing Images for DED

I snapped a screenshot of what my computer looks like right now. I have just begun preparing images from The Deadly Device for our merchandise store.


The process is a lot of fun! First I play through the game, looking for great images. I then create my list of high-resolution shots and send my list to the appropriate artists who work on them. They then render them out to large files for me to work with, and that is where I am at now. Once I complete the graphics, they will be uploaded to the merchandise store, where it becomes your turn to pick a product and choose your picture to design it with, like this really cool silver water bottle! (Oh and if you are interested, we like to post these images on Pinterest, so it makes for a really fun Nancy Drew collection wish list board).

It will be a while before these images will become available, except for the cover art designs which you can choose from right now. :) I also like to read every one's requests that you can post on our Message Boards here. Although we can't get to all of them right away, many have made it on my list to create or prepare for the merchandise store. Every time the store updates, I will be sure to inform you here on the blog.

Head's up! Tomorrow is the weekend puzzle as well as the interview video I hinted at earlier. Stay tuned and subscribe to our YouTube Channel to stay the most informed!

Exciting stuff!:D:D
Went to Disney on Ice tonight, and begin thinking about how cool it would be to have a game on a Disney cruise or something:) getting Disney's permission could be a problem, but it would be cool:)

Oooh tomorrow is the special interview! Yipee!

Yes, I think a lot of the fans wish you sold posters with all different images from the games.

I personally wish you could add some more new avatars on the message boards, or have another avatar challenge! Technology has come pretty far since 2006 when the last one was and I'm sure you'd get some pretty awesome entries! But that's getting a wee bit off subject there isn't it! :/

I didn't know YOU were the one that fixed and cropped the images for the merchandise store! There was no copyright LJ in the corner so how were we to know? LOL

Can't wait for tomorrow!

@Future HeR Animator -- I love Disney! But sadly, yes, we could not do a Disney mystery because we don't have the rights. :( Hope you had fun at the show, though!

@Drew Detective -- Yep! I'm the one who prepares the images for the merchandise store, but only when there is spare time and we aren't working too hard on the next game. ;)

Also, I'll make a note that you are requesting new avatars, because with The Deadly Device coming out, it would be a good time to add some new ones!

Oh really you'll consider it! That's great! Thank you for responding to my comment Little Jackalope!

I found this picture of Megan today, I think she looks really pretty here... just wanted to share it. The only funny thing is that she's using a magnifying glass on her keyboard... ?
