After many months of fans posting on HeR Interactive's Facebook page, pleading for answers/news about Midnight in Salem, the company posted this two days ago:

"Dear Fans,

Please know that we are still in the process of developing Nancy Drew: Midnight in Salem but do not have any additional news or a release date to announce at this time. We apologize for the delay as we are updating the game engine, UI, graphics and more to improve the overall quality of the games. We thank you for your patience."

And also this:

"Despite our best attempts to answer everyone's emails, posts, tweets, blog posts, etc. about Nancy Drew: Midnight in Salem...we admittedly do miss some. And hey, we’re only human, so sometimes we inadvertently miss responding to a post. Hence, we felt it would be appropriate to post the attached message. Our goal is to have a more substantial update for you very shortly. We appreciate your patience during this unprecedented shift at HeR Interactive. Please know that we are not ignoring you but we are a very lean team and simply can't respond to everything. We are doing the very best we can. Also, please know that just because we offer a new Nancy Drew puzzle or start a new Nancy Drew contest, that it has no impact on the development and progress of our next title. Our fans mean the world to us and we appreciate you sticking by us during this longer than usual wait time between titles. As always, we thank you for your support and stay sleuthy!"

Nothing really new here, but I thought I would pass this along for those who do not read HeR Interactive's Facebook page.

My sentiments exactly, MaG.

The "very lean team" reference - the irony of that does not escape me. The team is that way because the CEO let everyone else go. Not to mention the fact that the game is being outsourced and not being developed in house.

Maybe a different company should take over the Nancy Drew franchise.

There are people who have expressed a wish that this will happen.

I've honestly given up on hearing news about Midnight in Salem for now. Maybe someday we will hear more, but thinking about it all the time was just depressing me, so I have tried to move on.

At this point I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if their next game announcement is Codes and Clues 2.

I have seen several people say that they are playing the entire series in order, in the hopes that when they are done there will be some news about MID.

I am replaying my ND games. I am now playing Curse Of Blackmoor Manor . (My favorite) Now that I am using windows 10, which I dislike, some of the older games won't play. So I downloaded the games from Big Fish Games for $6.99 each and they are all playing except "Stay Tuned For Danger". I can find nothing online that will help the game function. But it is not one of my favorites anyway. So no great loss. All of the other old games play perfectly. I'm glad that I can download them so cheaply from Big Fish Games. thumbsup

Penny Lane, if you want to discuss how to get all of the ND games to run in Windows 10, feel free to post in the Glitches forum. Many Windows 10 users have reported that they have gotten all of the games to run, and Her Interactive says that the games will all run on Windows 10 by using a different installation method.
