What Marketing is Up To....

I don't delve into much of what the Marketing Team is up to nearly as much as I inform you on what the Design and Art teams are doing. Well, now it's time to give you some tips to what they are secretly working on...

At the moment, Marketing is conducting the voting for the title for ND#29 (woot!) This has to be decided early so that the Production team can record Lani (the voice of Nancy) in time to put it in the teaser at the end of Ghost of Thornton Hall.

Marketing is also about to play through the game to gather information to decide what the key features of the game are, what the best puzzles are, and what scenes would be best to pull out for the official trailer. (!) I guess you can say they are the team who "presents" the game to you.

Another big project they are working on is the cover art design, which many of us have seen, and even in the concept stages...it looks gorgeous and spooky! I think it will be better than the cover art for Shadow at the Water's Edge...!

"Ladies and gentlemen! May we proudly present...."

Sorry, I can't say anything further, because the red carpet is still in storage and is not nearly ready for GTH to welcome its audience. (Can we wait just a few months? Don't know if I can keep these secrets to myself for too long.)
After all, the blinking eyes are just too cool!

Oh my gosh! I'm so excited beyond belief it's not even funny. I think GTH is closer to us than we think.. Is that true LJ?

Haha after your "ladies and gentlemen I proudly present..." I found myself highlighting over your post thinking "there's got to be something here!!!" But no. What a great way to tell us to be patient though... I think I'm going to have to start using that as a saying myself! "Well the red carpet is still in storage so you can't see anythin' yet!" LOL XD

P.S. I know you can't reveal any specific info at this point, but could you please tell us how many titles they're considering at this point? It would be intriguing to know...

I find myself more excited for GTH than DED! Maybe because ya'll have talked more about GTH while it's being made than DED. I'm so anxious to see the cover art, you guys always capture the game right!
Hey, I'm always here if you need someone to tell your secrets too! ;D LOL
Woah, blinking eyes?! Like in CUR? Those little cats on Jane's door freaked me out! I thought I had imagined them blinking.

You better not tell us those secrets. Otherwise, you'll spoil it for us. *Slight pause.* Well, you can tell me. The less I know, but more stuff you tell me, the more I get excited for the release. :D

@LJ: Can you give me a rough estimate for when ND 28 will come out??

Again THE CLUE OF THE BRASS BOUND TRUNK would make an amazing nancy drew game and so would THE SECRET OF THE FORGOTTEN CITY especially with the design and art team at herinterctive. Maybe I'll work there sometime. I do love drwing and designing things. . . Do you get good pay at herinteractive, cause i might want to work there if possible.

I'll just use this nickname you can recognize my comments.

Still laughin' at the prove your not a robot thing (yes it is me)
