Description official descriptions

Released to commemorate the 75th anniversary of Nancy Drew, this is the 12th in the series of point-and-click, 1st person adventure games in which you take the role of the famous teen detective.

Taking place in the town of Titusville during the Depression era, the surroundings, clothing and manner of speaking are representative of the early 1930s.

A friend asks Nancy to go see 17 year old Emily Crandall who runs the lovely Lilac Inn. Money is tight, but a kindly neighbor tells her she will inherit his estate after his death. But, when he dies, the will leaves everything to someone else! In addition to this unexpected and suspicious occurrence, there have been some strange things happening of late. For instance, various things have disappeared and suddenly reappeared .. strange whispers have been heard in the halls when no one is about .. items on the walls move suddenly on their own. Nancy deduces that there is more to Emily's predicament than meets the eye. Determined to get to the bottom of it all, Nancy settles in to solve the mystery.

During your investigation, explore the town of Titusville, talk to its people, find and use inventory objects, and solve unusual adventure-type puzzles.

The blue convertible roadster that Nancy drives in this game has a history. In the books, Nancy’s father gave her trusty blue roadster to her as a birthday gift. After a brief stint as a maroon roadster, it went back to snappy Nancy Drew blue, eventually morphing into a blue convertible to keep up with the latest styles.
