Well that was a whole lot of nothing.
How many years did it take them to make that?

This is MAY 1st, not April 1st Marian!!

So, when it says that pre-orders begin Oct 1st exclusively on HerInteractive, does that also mean the game will only be available on HerInteractive??

In the past the download versions were exclusive to HeR Interactive for a while after release, before they were available elsewhere. That may be their intention this time as well, although I don't know for sure. I am hoping there will be a disc/boxed retail version as well as a download.

It would appear that the game description has been rewritten as well:

Quote
Nancy Drew unexpectedly finds herself in Salem, Massachusetts investigating an arson on the Hathorne estate. The Hathorne House was originally constructed by Judge John Hathorne, inquisitor of the infamous Salem witch trials and the final home to 102-year-old Frances Tuttle, his last direct descendant. When Tuttle passed away, the estate became city property and while the mayor was seeking a manager to oversee the estate the home burst into flames. The ongoing investigation has turned up little evidence but concerned citizens have accused Mei Parry of arson and are pressuring the police to arrest the secretive teenager. As Nancy races to uncover the truth behind the arson, she discovers connections to the house’s past with the Salem trials and finds herself drawn into a struggle with supernatural events that she simply can’t explain. Nancy’s convictions are put to the test. Are the ghosts real? Has Salem’s dark history come to life, or is there someone else to blame? Time is short, and Nancy must find the answers before the clock strikes midnight.

There's a new trailer out now. A suspiciously small amount of gameplay is displayed, and it's not even clear that it is actual gameplay. Instead we see people playing the game.

Suspicious is an understatement.

People pretending to play a game interspersed with low-res clips from earlier Nancy Drew games, including the one they made for 2-year-olds.

Does anyone see any footage in that "trailer" that would be from "Midnight in Salem?"

I don't think they have anything close to a new game.

If you want to see a video about a fictitious game, there are way better on YouTube.

I am speechless. So it was an ad for Code and Clues basically.

I don't see any footage in this trailer that is from Midnight in Salem; it's all from past games. There is one voiceover that I think is from the old Midnight in Salem trailer and that's it.

I don't think this is intended to be anything but a trailer promoting the series in general, along with a composite of footage from some previous games and a mention of the title of the upcoming game.

Yes, upon reflection, it's intended to be a trailer for the complete game franchise. But, due to the content, it makes to November release even more dubious. It often irritates me slightly that we are shown too much from a game during the production process. But this time, it's the other way around.

Re: Nancy Drew Midnight in Salem Release Date Announcement - 05/08/19 02:56 AM

I definitely agree with you there, Mikael. A release date of November implies a stage of development at this time where it would seem reasonable to see something more than three seconds of a character's face and some early art that may well have been done back in late 2014/early 2015 when they had first begun working on Midnight in Salem.
