The Hardy Boys are About to Arrive...



Game Overview:

Quote:
In The Hardy Boys: The Hidden Theft, the vault of the Spencer Mansion is robbed, and the Bayport Police call on the Hardy Boys to help tie up some loose ends, but they soon find themselves in the middle of a major criminal investigation that takes them on an adventure all over Bayport, and even into New York City. But the pieces don’t add up, and Frank and Joe find themselves embroiled in a drama of sinister proportions. Is the recent theft linked to something from the past? Can Frank and Joe find and decipher the clues in time to prevent another crime from happening?

Hi, Becky!

Thanks for the info. If the game isn't available here in Canada, I'll order from InteractCD.

For those who may be interested, I used to watch the soap "All My Children", and Jesse McCartney played Adam Chandler, Jr. for about 3 years in the late '90s.

yay Great news. I've been wanting to get my hands on this. I'm curious to see if it's going to be like the Nancy Drew series. Screenshots look good.

Looking at the new screenshots it seems to be 3rd person point & click game.

I wonder if you have to pick one and the other one follows or maybe you can switch it around in-game. Guess we'll have to wait for a gameplay trailer or demo to find out.

ps. Can anybody open www.hardyboysgame.com ? I can't seem to access it.

Hi Fobeus -- Dreamcatcher/The Adventure Company has been having server problems for a couple of weeks now. I'm assuming the Hardy Boys site problem is part of that. frown

Thanks for the info, Becky. I can't believe they haven't sort that out yet.

Thanks Becky, the screenshots look great but as mentioned it would also be great if we had screenshots or demo from the gameplay. We'll have to wait for TAC to come back online for that. Thanks again:

Are these the same Hardy brothers voices we got used to in the Nancy Drew games?
