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"?
