Nancy Drew: Alibi in Ashes

Woah, woah, what?  We've got more details about the upcoming Nancy Drew game, Alibi in Ashes!

According to the new "Key Features" box on the website, the game includes these things:

  • Explore River Heights! Search for clues in Nancy's hometown

  • Play as Four Characters! Assume the roles of Ned, Bess, George and Nancy Drew

  • What's Next for Ned & Nancy? Will their relationship finally blossom?

  • Ask Tough Questions! The answers vary depending on the character asking questions

  • Use Police Forensics! Identify fingerprints at the local police lab


  • All right, so #1 and #3 tells us information we already knew.  #2 and #4 are new, though.  We knew that Bess, George and Ned were in the game, playing some kind of role.  Now it's confirmed that they are all playable characters.  And of course, depending on who you're playing as, the various characters will react differently.  Nice!

    Question: How will you switch between the various playable characters?  In some games, you automatically switch between characters.  In other games, you can call a character or something like that, and the game switches to let you control them for a while.

    The last feature indicates that we have a fingerprint identification challenge/minigame.  So we can look forward to that, as well.

    To switch between the characters, you call them. It's not an automatic switch as soon as you call like in Kapu Cave; you can just call them to talk. ;)

    (Lindsey, oh my gosh, you're a harry potter fan too? I read both the books and watch the movies. its amazing).

    I think it's definitely awesome that we get to play as four different characters. VARIETY! Plus, i'm actually hoping George is a bit snappy with Deirdre cause they're supposed to not like each other
