My first completed AE, Down In Flames, can now be found here on my blog! 🙂
Tonight I’m going to post more artwork/ideas for Nancy Drew PC game #30, The Shattered Medallion!
Now, is it just me, or has HeR been even more secretive than usual with this game? The title has nothing to do with the teaser!
I am almost certain that Sonny Joon will be in this game (now that I think about it, I should try to draw him!
I’m not sure who’s going to be among our list of contacts in this game. I kinda doubt Ned will be a phone friend, because he was in GTH and SPY…but, if you read this blog often, you know that I LOVE having Ned in the games. I have a feeling that the Hardy Boys may be phone friends in this game, but I could be totally wrong.
Now that we’re on the topic of the Hardy Boys, does anyone remember Bess’ quote in GTH? It went something like this: “Joe has discovered hiking – which, Nancy, it’s just walking! That’s what it is!
And Frank – oh, I don’t know. Frank is all sullen, and he he keeps talking about wanting to get an MBA or something.”
I think I forgot something on the part about Frank. Anyone know what it is?
Anyway, could that part about Joe be a reference to him/them being in MED?
I’ve been thinking about the title, and what it could mean to the mystery. Here are some more of my theories:
1. The medallion is found by someone during the race. During the race, bad luck begins to plague that racer, and possibly even anyone who interacts with them.
2. There is a legend connected to the medallion, possibly involving a ghost.
3. (This one IS a little far-fetched, but considering the likely possibility of Sonny Joon being in the game, it’s certainly a possibility) The medallion is said to have a connection to aliens (I don’t really believe in aliens but, ya’ know…Sonny Joon)!
Today I’m going to be writing a review for-The Ghost Of Thornon Hall.(:
This is a HeR Interactive PC game (get ready for a long review!).
Having been awakened by a call in the middle of the night from Savannah Woodham,Nancy heads to Georgia to solve the mystery of Jessalyn Thornton,who disappeared while visiting her family estate.Her visit was ment to be a celebration in honor of her upcoming wedding.
When she goes missing,her family members and fiance begin to worry.
Savannah had told Nancy to think twice before she got on the plane,saying that Thornton hall was no place for believers like herself.
Upon meeting the Thornon family,Nancy is told the story of Charlotte Thornton,the young women who had died in a nearby fire on her 21st birthday in 1989!
Many family members and locals claim to have seen Charlotte’s ghost.Could her ghost have kidnapped Jessalyn?
Nancy is sure that there’s a logical explanation and is determined to find it.
But who set the fire that night and what did they have against Charlotte?
In a place where secrets seem to grow and greed brings flames,Nancy must separate the lies from truth and discover what Thornton hall has to hide befor it’s to late.
This absolutely has to be one of my all-time favorite ND games (despite its few flaws)!
This was a beautiful game!Seeing Charlotte (which happens often) was great,she was so pretty and her song sounded great!it was all very cool but I was very unsatisfyed with the explantion for the haunting.It didn’t make any sense to me.
I would have liked to have more food in this game.Nancy is in the south and all you get to feed her is sweet tea…which I gave to Nancy waaaay too many times (with 10 spoonfulls of sugar!SWEET!)!
I liked that you were able to eavesdrop a few times,though snooping in other peoples things was limited.
There were quite a few secret passages in this game (FUN!).
Most of the puzzles in this game were simple to figure out (as long as you have your trusty notebook with you (:) but there were few which took a bit of time.
The ending was awesome!You get a differant outcome depending on what you do (which I thought was great!).
Now I’m going to share with you my thoughts on the teaser,along with the plot (all of which is in code)-The 29th game will be called-
The Silent Spy
and focuses on Nancy's mother.We will be traveling to Glasgow (Scotland?).Nancy wakes up to another midnight call.A man/woman in a disguised voice tells Nancy that every thing she knows about her mothers death is a lie!
I have mixed feelings about this plot but I can't be disappointed in HeR because this is what their fans have been asking for (personally,I wanted a game based on The Glowing Eye book,in which,Ned gets kidnapped).
I can see why some people might want to know more about Nancy's mother but,personally,I just want to think of her as...her mother.The teaser seems to imply that Nancy's mother was a spy.This could just be me,but,I don't want Nancy's mother to have been a spy!Why couldn't she just have been her mother?I'm not saying I would have wanted her to just sit home and knit,but Nancy seems to have a certain bond with characters like Laura Pendleton (The Bungalow Mystery) and Miwako (Shadow At The Waters Edge).
Anyway.That’s just my opinion.
P.S.I mean no offense to HeR.It is still a very good idea.
Well,if you read the title of my the post then…start celebrating!
If you’re still waiting on yours then,hang in there!(;
If you did not order,you will not have to suffer through the shipping and…waiting and…worrying over the unlikely possibility of your game getting lost in the mail…
Anyway!I have a couple of photos to share with you tonight.
So what do you think?Not too shabby,huh?
The first picture is of a Barbie doll,wearing a lacy dress,running away from a burning building (don’t worry,I didn’t set our doll house on fire ( ; ).
As you can see,the second picture is of a poem from GTH (it’s pretty evident that I should have painted my nails first).
These are some of the best drawings (in my opinion) that I’ve ever done (although,out of these,the colored one is my least favorite…as pretty as it is (: )!
