Don't know why Her Interactive is involved, but the developer is called Young Socratics and the game is called Odyssey: The Next Generation Science Game.

It was released in April. It has nothing to do with Nancy Drew.

You can check the game out here.

You can find a review here.

HeR Interactive has apparently decided to become a distributor of an educational game. Being as all they have released themselves in the last two-and-a-half years since Sea of Darkness is Codes and Clues, this really isn't all that surprising. The game itself fits in nicely with the new CEO's agenda, which is proclaiming itself as making games that promote STEM education. She seems obsessed with driving this home as a new marketing strategy.

Nothing wrong with offering a game from another developer, but it has nothing to do with Midnight in Salem and that is all that 99.9% of the fanbase cares about.

Yes, I know that's what she says. I am still not convinced, though, that an outsourcing company is even working on the game, and will believe it when I see it. Bear in mind that no one now at HeR Interactive is actually involved in making a game, as the new CEO got rid of the entire development team who made the previous games.

Yes, I saw that. Whatever LJ says about it, the reasons for adding Odyssey to their website are pretty obvious to me: one is to try to bring in some revenue, and the other reason is to further the CEO's agenda of promoting everything they have as STEM educational products.

Yesterday I noticed that in the description of the original 32 Nancy Drew games, they have added bullet points to some of them as well as "enhanced" some of the game descriptions to emphasize the "educational" aspect. Website now says that HeR has been encouraging STEM education since 1998, so they are now pushing the ND adventure games as STEM-based as well.

To anyone who has been following along with all of this, it's quite transparent.
