Our friends at Her Interactive released a new monthly newsletter today, all about the Nancy Drew books the games are based off of.
You see, most (if not all) of the games are based off books. Message in a Haunted Mansion, for example, is directly based off Message in a Haunted Mansion. Secret of the Old Clock is based off Secret of the Old Clock and Mystery at the Lilac Inn.
Adaptation is very interesting process. I took a course on that to get my English minor in playwriting. Over the course of the class, I wrote adaptations of three books, a lecture (that was boring), a poem, another play and two comic strips. And I interviewed my sister for some reason.
Also, this year is the 80th anniversary of Nancy Drew! Boy, is Nancy going to have a fun birthday party this year! I hope I'm invited.
