A blog dedicated to all of the educational things to be found in the Nancy Drew PC games.
Whether you believe in curses or not, I think we can all agree that they make for some interesting reading. And there’s plenty of them to go around, like…
Subject: Investigating Arson
Appeared In: Alibi in Ashes
Subject: Zodiac Astronomy/Astrology
Appeared In: The Haunting of Castle Malloy
Superstition, history, and the blurred lines between the two are the main themes of the game. Astrology makes another appearance in Curse of Blackmoor Manor, but that is another post entirely. Until then, here are some interesting tidbits about the Zodiac, both the astrological belief and the astronomical importance.
Subject: Nikola Tesla
Appeared In: The Deadly Device
Tesla, Tesla, Tesla. Like Marie Antoinette and Harry Houdini, Tesla dominates his game, his life and work crucial to discovering who is behind Niko’s death. Hearing Frank and Joe fanboy over him was adorable. The book here provides a good overview, but since you can never get enough Tesla, here’s a few more fun tidbits.
Subject: Victorian Dining
Appeared In: Warnings at Waverly Academy
Subject: Harry Houdini and the “Watery Grave”.
Appeared In: The Final Scene
J.J. Thompson is a fictional character created to tie Houdini to the Royal Palladium Theatre, so the escape mentioned in this book is actually based off of two water escapes: the Chinese Water Torture Cell and the Overboard Box escape.
So i was thinking of making a clue crew directory that maybe we coulld all put on our blogs and itll include like every nancy drew blog so:
Reblog this post if your blog is like 80 percent or more nancy drew :)
And once this hits enough notes ill start makign it and everytime someone reblogs it ill just add them in.
well yeah reblog away :D
I’m blown away by the support this blog has gotten. There’s almost 60 of you following, and I’ve only made six posts! Thank you so much, Clue Crew, for welcoming me into your fold with nothing but positivity.
As of right now, I’m trying to reinstall all of my ND games on my new computer. Since I own them all except STFD, that takes a while. Then, because they’re new, I have to play through them again to get to the screencaps I need, instead of loading from a save point. I’ve considered taking shots from YouTube walkthroughs, but not only is the resolution and picture poorer, but I can’t control where someone moves their mouse. A random magnifying glass in the middle of a sentence is the last thing anyone wants to see.
Once all my games are back, I hope to post something every day or every other day. Until then, thank you very much for your patience. I have lots of information to share with you all, it’s just a matter of finding the right images.
Take care of yourselves, and stay beautiful!
Appeared In: Secrets Can Kill (Original and Remastered)
The Braille alphabet was needed to bypass the security system to the school’s boiler room. I thought learning how they were printed onto books was very interesting. Here are some more facts about Braille:
