Secret Newsletter

The Nancy Drew folks released a secret newsletter today. What's the big secret?

...A previously-unannounced game is being released later this summer.

...And it's a remake of the lesser known, first Nancy Drew videogame: Secrets Can Kill.

I am officially super-excited. Super excited! A graphics upgrade with new puzzles (and not having to switch between CDs, either)? This sounds great! I always did like that game.

If I where you I would totally look into it. :) Oh and by The way your Nancy Drew walkthrough are great and I always laugh at least once in ever part Great Job! :)

My first reaction was, "great, a re-release of a game I already own" but then realized how awesome the 1-disk feature is on it's own without all the other extras! I haven't played that game since it first came out due to that annoyance. I'm looking forward to playing it again with great new features!

When I got this game originally, my father tried to burn all the files on one CD. (It was being hosted on another site.) It didn't work at all. I always liked this game, but it was so weird playing it in 2008 with 2-D characters and 3-D environments. I also thought it was really short. Do you think they're going to remaster the other games? I can't wait for the new puzzles. I'm so psyched!

Wow, this is SO awesome! I just got the newsletter, and since Secrets Can Kill is one of the few Nancy Drew games I've yet to play due to the terrible reviews I heard, I'm pretty excited to try it. I hope you do a walkthrough of it, Michael, cause, if the puzzles are different, you KNOW I'll need your help!!!

Hey Micheal, just wondering if your going to do a walkthrough for this remastered game. just a thought. i haven't played Secrets can kill in a long time. i wonder if they're still going to have a boxed window (like the older games), or the wide screen window (like the newer Games), i guess we'll have to wait and see...

Love,
Caittie

I hope this doesn't mean the end of Nancy Drew PC games! I would be really sad ... :-(

@Anonymous I'm sure this is NOT the end of the Nancy Drew PC games! HER has never given us even the slightest impression that they're nearing the end of making games. SCK really needed to be updated, considering it was released 12 years ago. I'm sure HER's remaking it was out of necessity , not because they're stopping the games.

Hey Michael, do you think this is the game that will have your picture in it?

Anonymous said...

You know, Anonymous 10:06...that's not a bad thought there. I actually never thought about it. Since this one takes place in a school, it just might. Hey Michael, did the release form you got say what game your picture would be in?

That is SOOO exciting. I can't wait! :D

Hey, everyone! I need some Nancy Drew help!
In Secret Of Shadow Ranch, I've literally done EVERYTHING for day 1, but it won't skip to day 2! And obviously you need day 2 to get to the action and everything with the horse...but I don't know what to do!!! I've gotten Mary's trunk open, I've opened the thing inside the blanket box, read all the letters, read the journal, and opened both lockets. What am I doing WRONG? I can't talk to anybody and nothing's happening! It's driving me crazy!

PLEASE HELP!!!!!

Anonymous 1:43 don't pay any attention to the reviews for SCK. It is an awesome game(except for 2 disks and cartoon-y characters).

And Anonymous 5:59, I'm pretty sure HER is doing this 1. it needs updated and 2. it's NAncy's 80th anniversary!

I am really excited for this to come out.

HER INTERACTIVE CELEBRATES 80 AMAZING YEARS OF NANCY DREW®
Anniversary Tribute Mystery Game “Secrets Can Kill - Remastered” Slated to Launch

BELLEVUE, WA, May 6, 2010 – A murder. A killer on the loose. A secret forever hidden. And who better to put the pieces together than Nancy Drew, the world’s uber-successful girl detective?

I really enjoy your commentary but could you not be so LOUD? I have to turn up the volume to hear the dialogue, and I'm pretty sure I'm not alone in doing this, so when you speak it sometimes makes my ears bleed. Thanks!!

I'm thinking Michael's photo will be on the Paseo H.S. "Students of the Month" thing in the room where Connie is. There are ten pictures in the game, and ten winners for the yearbook photo contest. Everyone here probably realized that a long time ago, though.
