Nancy Drew: Midnight in Salem - Release Date

Christmas came early, everyone! Her Interactive announced a release date for Nancy Drew: Midnight in Salem! It's Spring 2019.

Here is the official announcement from their website.

When the news broke yesterday, Nancy Drew fans flooded the website and broke it for a while, just like we did when they tried out a new download system for the release of Tomb of the Lost Queen. (I still remember being 1/3 of the way through the download, then having it stop cold. Not a fun surprise!)

I'm excited about the release date. How can I not be? Of course, "Spring 2019" is a general date rather than a specific date, but that's an industry standard. Or at least, Nintendo usually announces games with a year and a three-month period attached. It looks like they're designing the game to be multi-platform from day one, as opposed to having a separate company port the games to non-PC platforms.

PLEASE do another Nancy Drew mega marathon!! With Her Interactive releasing the date for midnight in Salem I’m sure people will be interested in revisiting the old games and it would be a wonderful opportunity to replay them live for your viewers. The last marathon videos are my personal favorite to watch even now!

maybe in the meantime you could do a Nancy Drew Sins series, where you go through each game showing the 7 Deadly sins. I have seen this on youtube for other things and it is a funny concept :)

I can't help but feel like they spent all this time making no progress on the game or thought of ideas but got hid of them. I doubt they'll end up having a VR version of the game like they said... Waiting 4 years for a game as short as a Nancy Drew game is ridiculous. If a game takes 4 years to make, its usually really long (30-40+ hours of gameplay). I'm hoping it will be released in spring 2019, but I wouldn't be surprised if they set the date back even more or decided not to make it. I'm keeping my hopes really low at this point lol
