BELLEVUE, Wash. (PRWEB) December 03, 2019
Award-winning video game publisher and developer HeR Interactive today released Nancy Drew: Midnight in Salem, showcasing its new 3D game design platform using the Unity engine. In this latest mystery adventure installment, the iconic teen sleuth unexpectedly finds herself in Salem, Massachusetts investigating an arson at the haunted Hathorne House. Nancy Drew: Midnight in Salem is available now at http://www.herinteractive.com for $21.99 exclusively for PC and Mac.
In Midnight in Salem, Nancy races to uncover the truth behind the arson and discovers connections to the house’s past with the Salem witch trials. Nancy’s convictions are put to the test as she finds herself drawn into a struggle with supernatural events that she simply can’t explain. Are the ghosts real? Has Salem’s dark history come to life, or is there someone else to blame? Time is short and you, playing as Nancy Drew, must gather clues, solve puzzles and interrogate suspects to find the answers before the clock strikes midnight in this all new mystery adventure!
“Nancy Drew games are rooted in storytelling and Midnight in Salem will embroil players in a mystery rooted in historical intrigue. Fans will experience, for the first time, a Nancy Drew game in real-time 3D and will interact with an expanded cast of over 10 diverse characters, including fan favorites Frank and Joe Hardy,” said Penny Milliken, CEO of HeR Interactive. “Midnight in Salem is still our classic point and click game, but real-time 3D gives the game a different effect than the 2D rendering in our past games. It offers the player enhanced freedom and control when moving through Salem’s multiple environments and looking at objects at any angle the player wants. This is truly our largest game: players get double the hours of sleuthing and crime-solving activities in a rich historical context. Additional improvements will continue with each new game, just as we have been doing for the past 20 years.”
Midnight in Salem will also unveil for the first time the new voice of Nancy Drew – Brittany Cox. Brittany is a voice over artist, actor, and producer based in L.A. She was born in Raleigh, NC and has lived all over the US. Brittany brings a fun, sassy, modern day persona to Nancy Drew that will resonate with fans the world over.
“I am so honored and excited to be the new voice of Nancy Drew,” remarked Brittany Cox. “As a huge fan of the books and the games, it still feels unreal! I can't wait to share this new game with the passionate Nancy Drew fan base around the world. Thank you for welcoming me into this amazing community.”
