Nancy Drew: Alibi in Ashes

Everyone, you remember the artwork for the upcoming Nancy Drew: Alibi in Ashes game?


Some people made comments about how they redid Bess and George.  But to be totally honest, I don't think they did.  I think that's just the cover art version of them.

For reference, let's take a look at the cover for Nancy Drew: Secrets Can Kill.  The characters look different there than they do in the actual game.  I think that's what happened here; Bess and George look slightly different because they're on the cover.  In the actual game itself, they'll probably look just like they did in the other games.  Reusing character models is a lot easier than building brand new ones, you know.

SO EXCITED! I kinda hope you're right and they didn't redo Bess and George. They looked good in Ransom of the Seven Ships.

I really hope you are right! they did look good on the cover but I hated when they redid Frank and Joe in Creature of Kapu Cave. redoing characters confuses me!

I must admit that I'll be sad when you're not regularly posting videos and walkthroughs, but hopefully your posts on here won't diminish! I look forward to them everyday around lunchtime! :) And don't be a stranger on the GC podcast. Thank you for what you do! :D

I agree. I also think it's because they put bess's hair up

I hope you're right. As much as I didn't like how they did bess and george in ransom of the seven ships, I hate it even more when they redo characters.

I'm so excited for this game to come out! I wished they would redo Bess & George because they don't look like that in game only on cover.But I like how they did Frank&Joe Hardy in Nancy Drew: Creature of Kapu Cave.

Unrelated but if you're reading this Michael can you please do a walkthrough for Drawn: The painted tower? It's a really fun adventure game (no hidden object scenes!) and My sister and I, and I'm sure a lot of other people, would appreciate it a lot!

they might not redo the artwork for Bess and George, but they only redid the artwork for the Hardys because their designer changed

Ned looks similar to one of the book covers with him on it. He's not exactly what I expected, but it works. I actually kind of like the way Bess and George look on the cover.

I think your right about redoing the bess and george look but what are you going to do to let them know about the looks? and how are they going to show ned and nancy face? Also i want to tell you a little secret about nancy. We all know that she is a detective but do you know that her books have turned into comic books and she has been traveling around the world doing mysteries and has been with ned,Bess,George and her dad.If you want to hear more about this write me back if you can and if you do i will tell you what will happen in Alibi in Ashes.If you don't i won't tell you but i will give you a special report on the her interactive website.
Sincerely,
A secret detective

If you look at the trailer on HerInteractive, they actually did redo Bess and George.

I pre-ordered it last Friday. I'm supposed to be getting it tomorrow, Friday, or Monday. And I don't know about Bess and George- in the trailer, their characters look different. And, to be honest, I didn't really like Bess and George in Ransom. I think they did a great job, I have no reason to complain, and I know that the game makers aren't going to make what everyone invisions in their heads, but, I don't know, I just didn't like the way they looked. Now, Ned, on the other hand, looks exactly how I pictured, and I think these versions of Bess and George do it for me. But, that's my opinion. Sorry this comment is so long!

Are you gonna be able to do a walkthrough for ASH?

Am playing the game and it is a dud! You keep changing characters every five minutes and requires going back and forth by car on this map. Boring game and poorly constructed. Geesh! I am getting dizzy just changing characters every five minutes. Hard to find items and it requires taking items to Nancy in jail only to have her give them to someone else. Took me an hour until I found a van in front of the antiques shop which contains Brenda. Too much walking in my view. Not enough game play and adventure. Boring and irritating.

It's not a boring game. Just can't figure out where the package from Dad is or what I'm supposed to do to get it. So far, it a great game.

I'm really glad that they did redo bess and george. They looked horrible in the ransom of the seven ships! completely gross! In this one, george looked perfect as a tomboy and bess as a girly girl. I definitely didn't like the redo of the hardy boys in kapu cave but this one rocked. Too bad we didn't actually get to see Ned, just a framed picture and phone screensaver. Ah, this game wasn't too bad. It certainly is a step up from ransom of the seven ships and the other bad games. Hopefully nd games will continue to improve
