So instead, here are some thoughts on Danger by Design. The end of the game surprised me, because the culprit didn't appear when Nancy found the lost artwork. I mean, in most of the other games, when Nancy finds the treasure, the culprit shows up and attempts to steal it. That's what happened in Treasure in the Royal Tower, Legend of the Crystal Skull, Secret of Shadow Ranch, Message in a Haunted Mansion, and okay, pretty much every Nancy Drew game with a hidden treasure. But in Danger by Design, nobody notices that Nancy found some lost artwork.
I guess it makes sense in a way, because only one character knew about the lost artwork. But still, it seems kind of odd. Nancy goes far out of her way to solve the mystery of the lost artwork, and nobody notices. Poor Nancy. All that work for nothing. I feel kind of bad for her now.
The end was also a surprise, because it only mentioned two of the characters. What happened to the other three characters Nancy met? I'm surprised that their storylines weren't wrapped up. But I guess that's good news, because it means I can make up endings for them!
- Heather ended up marrying Dieter, and they named their first daughter after Nancy.
- JJ Ling ended up becoming Australia's hangman champion.
- Jean Michel ended up spending so much time at the restaraunt that they named it after him.
- Five years later, Hugo Butterly was still British.
