Her Interactive Brings Classic Nancy Drew Mystery Games to Tablets

Favorite teen sleuth Nancy Drew will now unlock mysteries on tablets this year as leading video game publisher and developer Her Interactive brings their classic and award-winning mystery adventure game franchise to mobile. As the first of several classic and new Nancy Drew games designed for tablets, Nancy Drew: Ghost of Thornton Hall launches today for the iPad. Kindle Fire and Android versions are expected to launch in the coming weeks.

One of the most popular Nancy Drew games for PC/Mac when it launched last year, Nancy Drew: Ghost of Thornton Hall has been optimized for the tablet gaming experience with full retina display resolution and new game features. Her Interactive plans to bring other classic Nancy Drew games from its PC/Mac catalog to tablets later this year. New Nancy Drew mystery adventure games are also in development for tablets as well as PC and Mac. Nancy Drew: Ghost of Thornton Hall for iPad is available now on the app store.

“We’re very excited to bring our classic Nancy Drew adventure series to tablets for the first time so that fans – young and old, current and new – can enjoy a new way to play Nancy Drew games, anytime, anywhere,” stated Stuart Moulder, CEO, Her Interactive. “Our fans have been asking for the classic Nancy Drew game experience on mobile, and with Ghost of Thornton Hall we’re delivering a fan-favorite mystery full of atmosphere and adventure, and a perfect fit for the tablet experience.”

In Nancy Drew: Ghost of Thornton Hall, Jessalyn Thornton’s fateful sleepover at the abandoned Thornton estate was supposed to be a pre-wedding celebration, but the fun ended when she disappeared. While her family searches for clues, others refuse to speak about the estate’s dark past. Game players take on the persona of Nancy Drew to discover whether something supernatural happened to Jessalyn, or if someone in Thornton Hall is hiding more than family secrets.

Key features include:

  • Solve Two Mysteries: Expose the fate of Jessalyn Thornton and unveil the truth about a family ghost
  • Take on the Scariest Nancy Drew Case Ever: Explore crypts and graveyards and uncover moving statues, sliding panels and secret passages
  • Examine Multiple Motives Under a Full Moon: Uncover old secrets and divulge new motives
  • Unravel Perplexing and Spooky Puzzles: Reveal shocking evidence and critical clues buried beneath the spooky ruins
  • Track Your Trophies: Verify your unlocked achievements on the new trophy menu display
  • Fast Forward Conversations: The all new Fast Convo feature allows the player to accelerate through all character conversations
  • Resolution: Full retina resolution allowing animation to run at 30 frames per second compared to 15 frames per second for the PC/Mac version
  • Choose Difficulty Levels: Play at Amateur or Master Sleuth level and erase mistakes without starting over

The Nancy Drew: Ghost of Thornton Hall app was developed in partnership with A.C.R.O.N.Y.M. digital, a leading cross platform development studio creating top-selling games and applications.

Pricing and availability: Available now for iPad (http://itunes.apple.com/app/id805926154), free to install and then $5.99 after 60 minutes of game play
