4 awesome recommendations for fans of Nancy Drew games

I know I said on Facebook that I won’t be posting regularly until next week (and if you missed it, make sure you follow my page here), but I felt bad about the wait and thought of a great quick post I could do! Plus, writing about something I thoroughly enjoy, like Nancy Drew games, could get the creativity flowing for other projects.

If you don’t know already, I’m a huge fan of Her Interactive’s Nancy Drew games (and a lover of the books since childhood). I decided that for all the other fans in this niche, and since I do have a game section on this blog, I will reveal my list of other resources for them to get their fill of Nancy Drew games while they wait for the release of Midnight in Salem (we have to wait a whole year after all).

If you played your Nancy Drew games a billion times (all of these have spoilers) and want some other way to appreciate the games, these four are awesome go-to’s!

4 – Her Interactive Twitch Parties

Why not go directly to the source of the Nancy Drew games? Her Interactive is the company that makes these games. Unfortunately, they are also the ones taking forever to release the next one, Midnight in Salem, but it’ll surely be worth the wait and they are making up for it by having monthly Twitch parties with Little Jackalope (LJ). My favorite team-up for these Twitch parties are LJ and Tess, with LJ on mouse. I like how LJ speaks very softly but clearly and navigates the game expertly while Tess is an awesome personality who is just so sweet and funny. They work very well together (like Shawn and Gus level from Psych). It’s fun and you find out some behind-the-scenes facts about the games!

3 – Everything Wrong with Nancy Drew Games

If you love CinemaSins’s analyses of movies, TV shows, games, and music videos on YouTube, then you’ll love Arglefumph’s analysis of the Nancy Drew games. He has a hilariously dry and sarcastic tone of voice as he drones on about the errors of Nancy Drew’s ways. Some of the points show his immense attention to detail while others are fun commentary that will make you chuckle. He also does quick playthroughs, reviews, and more. I usually stick to the Everything Wrong With series, but the other ones are definitely worth giving a try!

2 – Nancy Drew game reviews

One of the first people I followed on WordPress was somebody who appreciated my ode to Nancy Drew games (linked above in intro). She revealed to me she was planning to do game reviews on each one, so I instantly followed her, and you really have to, too! Diary of a Part-time Writer posts comprehensive, entertaining reviews on the games. I enjoy reading her take on them, even though I might not agree on everything, and it’s always nice to bond with other people in the fandom online because I don’t know any in person. Read her reviews here!

1 – Kpopp plays Nancy Drew

My latest find is a hilarious YouTube gamer named Kpopp (I don’t know why she’s called that actually, and would love to find out if she’s a K-pop fan or something). She was first striking to me because she sounds just like Jenna Marbles. She’s basically hilarious with a very distinct voice (apart from sounding like Jenna Marbles), and it’s fun to watch her freak out playing Nancy Drew games and curse off the annoying characters (so, yes, there is cursing). Definitely give her channel a try! Once you’re through her Nancy Drew streams (there aren’t that many and she doesn’t finish all of them, but they’re very fun to revisit, as well), you can even watch her play Sims or Grand Theft Auto (which I don’t even play or have any interest in)!

BONUS

Although I was not a huge fan of their streaming of Nancy Drew, this reaction was pretty hilarious, so if you like, you can check out their other streams of the games, as well! (This also has cursing.)

If you don’t know about the Nancy Drew games, I highly recommend them. They’re educational, fun, and exciting. You can check out more on Her Interactive’s site.

Gallantly,

    I am out of the loop!! I had no idea about any of this – MUST learn more. I loved those books as a girl. We actually had a boardgame based on Nancy Drew that we got at a thrift store as a girl. You brought back great memories with this post! I’ll share on Twitter and Pinterest.

      Aw thank you!! And I love that you found a Nancy Drew board game at a thrift store. I’m curious what that game would be like. They should make a Clue game Nancy Drew-themed or something.
      I love the books, too, and I love going around looking for more of them in libraries that sometimes sell some of their books (great deals), “little free libraries,” and more. It’s always exciting when I see the yellow hardcover and then see that I don’t have that one yet. The computer games are so fun!!! I definitely recommend them.

    I’ve never seen gameplay for Nancy Drew games before but it’s cool that you are into them. I have been into various game reaction channels before in the past but none of them ever stuck. Without naming any names, I notice that some of the more popular gaming reaction channels tend to fall to the wayside of the gamer being way too “extreme” in their reactions. In the past it was hard to tell if I was watching a gaming channel for the game or for the gamer’s reaction.

      Nancy Drew games are so much fun! If you like mystery, try it out! There are some scary ones. Maybe you’d like Water at Shadow’s Edge. Yeah, I don’t like reactions that are too extreme or come off fake >< I hope to someday do some of my own live streams of Nancy Drew games haha

        Are the games PC only? I wouldn’t mind trying a scary one. That would be cool to do your own live streams and have fun.

          The games are for PC/Mac (older ones only on PC but there’s a trick to playing them on Mac). They have one mobile, I think… Haha yeah I think it’d be fun!
