That wiley super-criminal is at it again! The insidious Carmen Sandiego, scourge of law enforcement agencies around the world and throughout history, has decided to lie low and lower her bar a little bit in this rare and unusual installment of her educational game series, organizing her nasty gang of brutes and burglars to commit vile crime throughout the frontier state of North Dakota from Bismarck to Fargo!

The player's understanding of this very specific slice of the American Midwest is necessary for them to successfully play the role of an agent sent to apprehend Carmen and her gang by gathering clues and staying hot on the suspect's trail, steps needed (as in all classic Carmen Sandiego games) to obtain the information needed to issue an arrest warrant and close the case on one crook after another. So close your Louis L'Amour paperback, finish your bowl of Knoephla soup, and get to it!

At least twenty different states invited Brøderbund to develop state-centric versions of the Carmen Sandiego franchise, but this prototype product was the only one they attempted.

Developer Craig Nansen writes:
The other states contacted Brøderbund after the release of the North Dakota version but were turned down, mainly because of the lost revenue due to taking their production team away from more lucrative projects.


~5000 copies were sold, primarily to North Dakotan schools, about the only place anyone might have had an opportunity to experience this game.
