Description

It's long been rumoured that Marie-Antoinette, the famous Queen of France, hid all the treasure she had possessed prior to the French Revolution. It is up to the player, directing the famous girl-detective Nancy Drew, to find out where this treasure is. While Nancy is on her ski-vacation near an old castle, she begins to understand that this mission is tough, but not impossible...

This newest installment of the Nancy Drew series looks very similar to the previous game Message In The Haunted Mansion: 1st person perspective, 360 degree rotation.

Trivia

Some of the artwork for this game was probably modelled after the Manresa Castle, whose Staff is given "Special Thanks" in the credits. The beautiful and mysterious Manresa Castle, located in Port Townsend, Washington, is a hotel and inn originally built in the 1800s as a private residence. Some of its rooms are said to be haunted.
