    I've read rumors that HeR may not make SOS, which really saddens me because I really adore the Dossier Series. Now, I know that the rumors may not be true, but I thought it'd be cool to have a thread listing all the people who want this game as much as I do.
    Adding to my point here, at the end of RED, there is a teaser for SOS, and it looks really awesome! Quite frankly, I don't think it's fair to give us a teaser that awesome and then not make it, you know? So if the rumors are indeed true, (I'm saying 'if', here people!) and HeR really isn't planning on continuing this series, I plead with them to at least make SOS since I, along with many others, have watched and soaked in every morsel of the teaser and have become very excited for this game.
    If you want HeR to make SOS, please feel free to sign the list with me. :)

    P.S.: Here are three other petitions if you want HeR to keep making the Dossier Series: , and .
    Edited: And here is a fascinating petition to make SOS into an adventure game: If we can't have it as a Dossier Game, this seems like the way to go. :)

    Edit: I want to thank everyone who signs with me for doing so. I'd post thanking you if I could, but since I can't unless it to discuss something about this or answer a question, I guess this is the next best thing. ;) So thank you! ♥ It means a lot to me!

    Edited 3/12/2011: Wow, today the 10th person signed! Awesome! :)

    Edited 3/17/2011:
    Oh no, the rumor is true (for the most part)!

    SOS has officially been 'put on the bench' as Inter_Sleuth put it. (The link to the post where I found that information is here.) So I'm very bummed. :( Maybe if HeR sees this and sees all the people wanting it, they will take it off the bench and finish it. That is my hope at least.

    I haven't played any dossier games yet... but I see no reason for them to stop making them now! They should at least make a few more... sign me up Penelope!
    Yay first signer

    The HeR message boards taught me to be a girl who "isn't afraid"
    and to pursue my dreams! THESE very boards made me the
    creative girl I am today... thank you Herians! Though I don't have
    much time for ND these days, I sign in now and again to see

      I don't know if you read the newest post from Inter Sleuth but it was mentioned at the end that they would talk about SOS soon. No idea when. But it didn't sound like HER was going to get rid of it. Of course I could be wrong.

      Sign me up anyways!

        Oh really? I read it, but I thought it was implied that they might not continue it. Hmm, maybe I took it the wrong way. But I'd still love to know how many people want this game as much as I do. :)

                Yep, I agree with DrewFan18--if it were set in stone that they weren't going to make SOS at all, Inter_Sleuth's comment would've been different. What I gather from everything that's been said (and unsaid) up to this point is that the Dossier series had been put on hiatus indefinitely (as it didn't get quite the hoped-for numbers, I imagine), while HeR tried to gauge member (and general consumer) response to a few other newer concepts over the past year:
                - Special Editions via site pre-order (TOT:SE, SAW:SE)
                - Remastered Editions (SCK2 aka SCKR)
                - Online-only gifts (Favorites tin)
                - Audio/"Radio" drama
                - Mobile Mysteries (iSHA)
                - Giving the Nintendo thing another go (Hardy Boys on the DS)

                The 80th Anniversary year was a busy one for HeR, no doubt about it!

                (Now, of course, with ND25 on the horizon, I'm sure there's the decision about what to do with the speculation about whether or not it will be a "special" game, given that it's #25 after all. They may have already long decided this (and it might just be another awesome game, but not special because of the number), but I can't help but give it one more nudge! Two words: River Heights. Oh, and a third: please!)

                I do believe that we die-hard pro-SOS members (and at least some of the mods!) have by now gotten HeR's attention enough to where they plan to do *something* to accommodate us (after all, SOS already was a teaser trailer, so that ship has already sailed, pardon the pun). It's just that, in order to run things responsibly from a business standpoint (we do want them to be able to keep a full staff, after all!), they've needed to see where these other initiatives would end up.

                My guess (only a guess) is that SOS will end up being a site-only purchase (possibly extended to a very large online store, as with the Favorites tin), at least initially. But who knows, HeR has pulled more than one rabbit out of their hat over the years, and I remain nothing less than fully impressed with their work.


                So, long story short, sign me up please, Royal Payne!

                If you see Becca Sawyer, let her know that Mr. Twain says we need to stop playing around and switch last names back, or else he's going back to being Mr. Clemens. (Of course, being a humorist, he was probably joking.)

                  Which proves that I need to stop being such a pessimist... but I'm glad that I am most likely wrong!

                  Wow, I didn't realize that they tried so many different concepts in such a short time.

                  The 80th Anniversary year was a busy one for HeR, no doubt about it! True!

If you are right, I hope that it is sold in boxed edition as well and not just as a download. But who knows, HeR has pulled more than one rabbit out of their hat over the years, and I remain nothing less than fully impressed with their work. Me too. :)

                    To answer your question about the radio drama, the Nancy Drew Radio Mysteries are something that HeR has been producing on their channel on a certain well-known Internet free media site--episode four was just released. The episodes are brief (a few minutes long) but quite hilarious and very well-made (no big shocker there--it's HeR)!

                    For the link to the channel (and to follow info and notices about future episodes being added), check out "Little Jackalope's" (Mysty's) posts on the Amateur Sleuth blog--most recently her March 3 post. As always, you can get to the Amateur Sleuth blog by the link at the bottom of the Community landing page, or by the link in the Amateur Sleuth sticky posted by nikeheart at the top of the Blogs & Tweets forum.

                    Enjoy! :

                    (Side note: Always remember that a member should refer people to the Amateur Sleuth blog only in those two ways mentioned above, not by posting the link oneself as it's an external site, as per nikeheart's sticky mentioned above. Same goes for the NDRM site, hence my "roundabout" answer.)

                      I've only played one dossier mystery but this one, The ship of Shadows sounds interesting. :) If HeR made it I would love to play it. Sign me up.

                          I haven't heard about this! When/Where did HeR say that they weren't going to make SOS?? (not as in like a doubting way just like i want to read it!!!!) That makes me soooo sadd! I <3 dossiers just as much as adventure!

                            Oh no, they haven't said that they aren't making it. But the thing is, they haven't said they are either, so I was beginning to get worried they they might not, hence this thread.

                            P.S.: Inter_Sleuth's last post on the Notes From HeR Interactive board said that they will talk about SOS soon, but I'm not sure if the news is going to be good or bad. I'm hoping it's good. (That's another reason I made this thread: I was hoping that if they had decided not to make it, that seeing this thread might change their mind.) :)
