02.21.14 // Hi! Unfortunately, once again, my promises were not able to come to fruition. I spent another 6 days in the hospital and got out two days ago. Fortunately, I am about 70-80% through the GTH walkthrough and I have some SHA and GTH avatars which will, Lord willing, be uploaded sometime in the next week. It may seem like I'm making excuses but I really have been in and out of the hospital for several months. I am going to be brutally honest with everyone, which makes me quite vulnerable, I was diagnosed with MDD (Major Depressive Disorder) three years ago after I attempted suicide. Obviously, this isn't something that you can just get over within a few weeks, like a cold. It is an ongoing and continuous struggle. Of course, I firmly believe that you all support me, but it has been a very difficult past few years and that is the true reason why I have been failing to update. Fortunately, my current medications seem to be working! (not trying to sound like a crazy person, like Harper Thornton) I have a renewed attraction for nostalgia, which includes Nancy Drew and Nancy Drew Mania. It has come to be my safe place, and I hope it will continue to be. With that being said, I am going to try my hardest to keep updating the site, because I believe this is, was, and still is the number one Nancy Drew fansite of them all. Thank you to all the kind comments, it means a lot. You all can email me at chase@nancydrewmania.com with suggestions, words of support and whatever else you feel like doing. During this struggle, I have realized how deeply I miss the fan base of Nancy Drew and especially all the dedicated followers of Nancy Drew Mania. I love you all for your support through these trying times, I pray that you have patience with me, and I hope that you all sleuth safely. :] Also, THE POLL WILL END ON THE LAST DAY OF FEBRUARY! So make your choice now!

EDIT: Added, finally, my three new SHA avatars! Also, the C-Box has been restored to the NDM Forums, please (!!!) use it appropriately, we have had many problems in the past. I am hoping to get the forums up and running again, which has been a seemingly impossible task for the past two years, but I believe we can do it! Tell your friends!!!! Also, I'm doing some annoyingly tedious housekeeping on the forums. Ugh. But you're welcome ;]

-Chase

02.13.14 // Well. Where should I start? I, once again, am deeply apologetic from my absence. I have recently found myself having much more time to update the site, which I am thoroughly looking forward to doing. Unfortunately, this new amount of free time came with a price. I was forced to drop out of my junior year of college when I became quite ill. It has taken me a while to recover, so now I am just working, taking a community college class, and trying to get back to optimal health. I dropped out in Oct and it has taken me a while to get myself together. But, I am back! Another piece of bad-ish news is my computer is being a big piece of poop and so I'm having to transfer things from different devices in order to get content. I have 3 SHA avatars that I made, but they have been stuck on my laptop for almost a week and I finally got them off. I'm going to play CAP this evening, so hopefully I will be able to get some more graphics from that! I might be able to update with all the graphics tonight, or in the next day or two. Once again, I'm sorry for the hiatus, it wasn't a fun ride for me, but I'm hoping to get back into the swing of things. Be looking out for new walkthroughs.

P.S. There may or may not be some brainstorming on a new layout coming soon ;]

Sleuth Safely,

03.15.13 // I've added five new GTH avatars. Check them out here: GTH avatars. ALSO, I've got more graphics coming soon. :D

-Kara

03.14.13 // Hello, hello, hello!! Long time no update! As Chase said, we've all been very busy with school (life's no fun sometimes!) but I do have some updates for you today!! As you all may have heard, the next game's, Ghost of Thornton Hall, cover art was just released TODAY! I've added the game page here which of course includes a wonderful, large cover art. Check it out! ;) Oh and I do intend to add graphics soon but my computer reformated itself and I lost PhotoShop. Not cool...:(

-Kara

02.28.13 // Hello, my fellow sleuths. I hope you all had a wonderful Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Kwanzaa, Hanukkah, New Years, Valentine's Day and anything else I missed since we last updated. Unfortunately, while being in the midst of Nursing midterms, I was not able to upload any content, but I was perusing the site and felt like I should at least let you all know that we are still alive, just insanely busy with school and life in general. Hopefully, as summer rolls around and classes begin to come to an end, the three of us will be able to get the site back up to date before the new school year rolls around. We truly are sorry that we aren't able to update more, but we do have to set certain priorities when you are at this stage in your life. Until the next update, I urge you all to remember to sleuth safely. :]

10.13.12 // The first Deadly Device walkthrough on the web is now live! Also, I have discovered a second DED Easter egg; details here. The next game, in case you're wondering, is called The Ghost of Thornton Hall. The teaser trailer gives perhaps the fewest details of any teaser trailer - ever. I hope to have a recording of it up for you soon.

-Mary Ann

10.12.12 // I have completed The Deadly Device! What a fantastic game. Check out screenshots on the DED page. You'll find more screenshots (including an image from the outtakes) on our Facebook page. I have discovered an Easter egg in the game! Take a look here.
I have also updated the following pages with DED info:

Check back soon for tons more information and, of course, we will have the walkthrough up before anyone else! Stay tuned, and enjoy the game!

09.14.12 // Hello everyone! I have been very busy lately but dropped in to say I haven't forgotten about NDM! I have updated the DED page with all of the latest information, and have added some new DED avatars. More are coming soon.

-Mary Ann

05.17.12 // Finally. Classes are over. Summer has arrived. And I am finally a little less busy, which means more NDM updates! I've played TMB, which was very exciting and I will try to make some downloads for that. Unfortunately, there have been some computer changes in the house since I've been gone, so I don't have everything I used to have, but I'll try to find it, or just make it work. Also, I've been trying to play some of the older games, looking for cookies, etc. And I actually just updated the cookies with some HAU information, which is what I am currently replaying. On a sidenote, Mary Ann, Kara and I have something pretty exciting cooking up behind the scenes. More on that later. Until then, sleuth safely!
EDIT: I added 8 new TMB avatars. Check 'em out! :D

-Chase

05.09.12 // The TMB Hints & Tips page is now available, for those of you who would rather not use an entire walkthrough. Don't forget - the teaser trailer for ND27 is up on our youtube channel! Take a look and tell us what you think of the next game!
I've also updated the photo contest. Check out the answer to the last mystery screenshot here.

05.01.12 // I believe all digital downloads have been resumed now.
I've updated the TMB game page and our Facebook page with some new TMB screenshots; take a look!
If you'd like to know what ND27 will be, you can find the teaser trailer on our Youtube channel or highlight the following spoiler box: ND27 is called "The Deadly Device." Nancy must discover why a famous scientist has been murdered - does it have anything to do with the information he was about to reveal about the legendary Nikola Tesla?
Look for lots of new TMB information and downloads tomorrow!
*EDIT: You can take a look at my review of TMB here.

-Mary Ann

05.01.12 // Unfortunately, all digital downloads of Tomb of the Lost Queen have been suspended until further notice. Hopefully Her Interactive and Digital River will get kinks ironed out today.
As soon as I am able to access and complete the game, I'll update the site. Until then, the Lost Queen is still a mystery to me, too.

-Mary Ann

04.30.12 // I've added a new download under stationery! Love Nancy's stationery from the games? I've added a copy that looks pretty darn identical to the game's! Check it out! For those who saw the old version, this stationery has been re-done using photoshop, and I think you'll like the difference.

-Kara

04.24.12 // There's a new mystery screenshot - check out the photo contest page.
