Adventure Games

Every once in a while, to mix things up, we make an "adventure" game. Some of our "adventure games" would include Ransom of the Seven Ships, Danger on Deception Island, and Trail of the Twister. Of course, we also create scary games, and historical or international games, but many games can fit into numerous categories. I wanted to look at what makes one of our "adventure games" an adventure.

Nancy is often sent on vacation to spend time in the area she's visiting, enjoying her time away from a case. Of course, knowing Nancy, vacations don't always go uneventful. Mysteries tend to follow her everywhere! At some point early on, something happens and she is back to work.

In Ransom of the Seven Ships, a vacation in the Caribbean turns into a case when her friend Bess goes missing. In Danger on Deception Island, someone ransacks the boat Nancy is staying on. Nancy can't set these issues aside, she must get to the bottom of what's really going on.

The Shattered Medallion will certainly be an "adventure game". Are you eager for a "vacation"?

Ooo! MED is an adventure game! I'm really excited! :D I don't really know what the actual mystery is, but I'm super excited! PS- LJ, I'm just curious, are you going to do 14 hints for 2014? Instead of 13 hints for 2013? I've only been on the blog for about a year so I'm not sure if it's a annual thing or not. Thanks LJ!

Yes! I love vacations! Something always happens. I wonder if Nancy has ever actually gotten a real one. I guarantee something bad happens to Nancy or one of the contestants.

Poor Nancy doesn't know what a real vacation is! Haha;)
One day. One day she will experience it.

I'm hoping MED is gonna be awesome. I wasn't a fan of the teaser. In fact, because the excitement wasn't there for me, I actually forgot about MED:0 there! I confessed by biggest secret..!! I'm just going to blame my forgetfulness on me trying to recover from my first heartbreak... That's legit right? Right.
Anyways, I still believe in you guys!:)

Doesn't it get hard to come up with a blog post everyday? Especially when you can't mention half the stuff you're working on?;)

I love adventure games! I prefer the adventure/spy/snoop/historical games to the scary games. Bring on the Shattered Medallion!

Definitely! It's been a long time since we had a really fun adventure, such as SHA.

Oh! Speaking of adventure games, I saw something today and thought it was so cool I had to share! :) I was doing a paper on parrots today for school, and I saw a picture of a parrot that looked EXACTLY like Coucou from RAN! The way it had its head turned and everything! (for a second upon first glance I thought it was a screenshot of the game!):O
Enjoy! :)

@ND's #1 fan - 13 Hints for 2013 was only for last year. :) There won't be a set list for 2014.

@Future Animator -- You are right, it can be challenging to come up with new blog posts when we can't talk about the next game yet. But it does give me time to talk about other Nancy Drew things! Likes books, music, merchandise etc!

@ND's #1 fan - That is such a cute picture!! Looks just like Coucou, thanks for sharing!
