Yes, the most recent ones aren't chore-based, at least as far as I recall. I think the worst offender for chores was White Wolf of Icicle Creek. smile

I don't think the games with chores were limited to any specific year. And I don't know that everyone would agree on what constitutes a "chore." Making beds sure, but what about when the chore is made into a sort of puzzle, like filling bento box orders? I thought making the cake in Shadow Ranch was a chore, but someone else might have enjoyed it. And worst of all were the games you had to play with the monkeys in Ransom of Seven Ships. I don't think those were meant to be a "chore" but they certainly felt like one.

Good points, Jenny. It's possible that what one person deems to be a chore, another person finds it to be a puzzle. The word "chore," in and of itself, is somewhat subjective, depending on what a person likes and dislikes.

I found out about them yesterday and went to the Virtual Family Kingdom where you can play the first game in the Miss Clue games for free. It's definitely a Nancy clone with different voice actors... I am going to check out their October release which takes place in Salem for sure.

Oh...my...goodness. This is now turning into a Nancy Drew soap opera.

This has been posted on the Miss Clue website:

Quote:
We are proud to announce that Lani Minella will be joining the Miss Clue team for upcoming adventures, beginning with the "Trials of Salem." In the "Trials of Salem," Lani Minella will star as the voice of Caroline Darcy, the mother of Jane Darcy.

In the all new Miss Clue Regency adventure scheduled for release in February of 2017, Lani Minella will be featured as the daughter of Lord Cavendish, the young friend and confidante of Jane, as they unravel a mystery which takes them from Pemberley to Amsterdam!

Watch the Miss Clue homepage for our exciting interview with Lani Minella coming up soon!


I never saw this one coming.

That's interesting.
It might be worth checking out if they get Lani and some other good voice actors.
