The Beginning of Busy

I'm going to try my best over the course of the next few months to limit my use of the word "busy", because for me and some other team members here, this is the beginning of our busy season. Approaching the launch of Nancy Drew: The Silent Spy we have a lot of things to get ready for its red-carpet entrance.


Things to include in getting ready for SPY's arrival:
  1. Cover Art for the box
  2. Web page
  3. Write up character bios
  4. Collect screenshots
  5. Write up the game description and key facts
  6. Official trailer
  7. Get ESRB rating
  8. Create strategy guide
  9. Prepare soundtrack for the store
  10. SPY merchandise images for the store
  11. Reveal the color scheme
These are just a few of the big things! There are a lot of details and steps that are hidden under each one of these tasks, and it sure takes time for each project. I'll try to keep you updated with as much info as I can share about where we are at in our tasks.

For now, we are currently working on the cover art and color scheme. Next week I will be working on a SPY video...but I can't tell you which one...because there are sort of few fun extras to come. ;)

Side note! It's National Parent's Day! Alibi in Ashes is 50% off (digital or physical) if you use the code found on our Facebook page, but it's only good for today.

Tomorrow we announce the winners of the Where's Sonny? Contest! Stay tuned!
Also, there is a Twitter quote contest going on today, if you would like to participate!

I had a dream about SPY the other night, can't believe y'all chose that subject to base this game on. Did you ever think there would be a game like this? Who's idea was it? :) we(fans) never thought y'all'd make a game like it! I'm super excited to see how you pull it off.

The day I work 9 and a half hours you post the winners;D haha hmmm, I say it's time I get a smartphone just to be able to keep up with you guys when I'm out. Good luck to the people who entered!

Hi Little Jackalope!

I am a HUGE Nancy Drew fan and I absolutely love reading your blog! I make sure to check it every time I log in to the message boards so I'm always up to date. :D

I was just wondering if I could have a birthday shout out next Wednesday, August 7? I'm going to be 20! Nancy has been with me for over a decade now and a shout out would be such a special birthday gift!

Thanks a million!

PS - Can't wait to see who wins the Flat Sonny contest! So many cool pictures! ;)

Sincerely,
Caitlyn
