  • ~Petition for the Games to REALLY Be Based on the Books~

    Inspired by a wonderful thread created by Clueless in SA Get back to basics, I thought I would take this idea one step further and turn it into a petition.

    I've also been involved in the approved read for "The books the games are based on" and it has become clearer and clearer to me just how much the newer games are not based on the books and instead are just brand new stories. I am currently reading "Death By Design", which is an amazing book! How I wish Danger By Design could have had this wonderful storyline!

    I am realizing this is probably why so much has been lacking in the newer games and so many of us long for the feel of the older games. You just can't improve on a good storyline, which Nancy Drew books do have. Please don't get me wrong, I love all of the Nancy Drew games. I just think the stories should be based on the books.

    In the books, Nancy constantly faces perilous and life-threatening situations. And there are always very tense moments along the way, which is most likely why there are those who want the games to be more mature. If young children read these books and aren't disturbed by it, why would they be disturbed by these situations in a game?

    The first eight computer games for the most part, were really and truly based on the books. Most of the games even kept the same title as the book they were based on. Unfortunately, beginning with Danger on Deception Island, the rewrites began to creep in more and more and by the time they got to Danger By Design, there is no resemblance between the book and the game.

    I believe the scriptwriters at Her Interactive have taken far too many liberties with completely rewriting the Nancy Drew books. These books have stood the test of time (almost 80 years) and if HI is going to market the games as being based on the books, I believe they need to genuinely be based on the books.

    If you are like me and would like to see the games really and truly be based on our beloved Nancy Drew books, please sign my petition. Thanks so much for taking the time to read this and sign!

    I totally agree. I just finished reading The Mysterious Mannequin and I would love it if HER made a game exactly like the book. So, sign me up!

      I agree! While HAU was very good, the only resemblance it has to The Bike Tour Mystery is that it's in Ireland! If HER stayed closer to the storyline, I think more many people would see an improvement. However, being creative in their ideas is a plus.

        Hi Girl D!
        I normally don't sign petitions but I really do agree with this! HER should stick with the books that has created who Nancy Drew really is. I love the danger and adventure, without it being too mature for younger players. The books are good for many ages yet still have a specail charm. If HER can re-incorporate this in the games, we would see a great improvement!

        Great Idea. I will sign =]

            Sign me up! I totally egree! I have read every single orginal hardcove Nacy Drew and almost all of the new ones. I love them, and millions of people love them and the only reason I found HER is because of Nancy Drew and my love for her books. In the new games now, I dont feel like I am playing as Nancy Drew. In fact, I don't even feel like I am playing as a detective.
