Physical copies don't seem to be gone yet, so I'm going to go ahead and hold out for regular purchase I guess.

I'm happy to see so many Nancy Drew fans here! I've loved the games ever since my first game (Treasure in the Royal Tower) and I am pretty excited to be playing MIS. The trailer is pretty disappointing in terms of character animation, but I hope that it gets better as they begin to release new games (if they do).

No one should come and go
And have no one know they were ever even there
No one deserves to disappear

So the game is supposed to come out tomorrow...! I hope I don't get my heart broken again. :(

This is my thought as well. I know that they used to reuse models frequently, so I guess when they switched engines, they had to start from scratch. If they scrape together enough capital from MID to keep the company going, hopefully the games will start looking better. (Nice to meet you, by the way! I'm always happy to meet another Nancy Drew fan! \:D/ )

I think it was supposed to be 11:00 PT, but apparently it's available on Steam NOW! Hurray! It's finally here! \:D/

It just changed from preorder to buy; I added it to my cart but the discount code isn't working so I haven't purchased yet. The code works if I try it on a different game, so it is active. It seems they just haven't okayed it for this game yet since it wasn't valid for use on preorders. Hope they fix it soon; I sent an email.

Hopefully it ends up working! I assume it's something like you mentioned, and they have to update MID from the pre-order status.

They said they're shipping out pre-orders in the order they were placed, and I think I ordered within the first couple of hours, so hopefully my game should get here within the next few days. It doesn't really matter that much since I don't have time to play the game for a few weeks, but I'm a little mystified as to why they didn't ship the games out so they would arrive on the release date.

Final thoughts before playing the game: I know the graphics won't be great, so I'll keep my expectations low there. My main hopes are a) the game mechanics work decently well, even if the graphics aren't great, and b) the story feels like a Nancy Drew mystery. If we get those things, I'll be happy to endure kind of crummy graphics.

Nice to meet you too! I've been around Nancy Drew fans since I was a mere baby, so even though I am really bad at mystery games I know a looooot about all 33 of the games :D

Will both of you pawsibly do a review of the game once you have finished it? I would be very interested to hear your opinions :)

Sure thing! It will be a few weeks until I have the chance to sit down and play the game, but I'll definitely post my thoughts here afterward! :)

I forgot to post, but I placed my order!

Never did get the code to work on the new game, but they said just order at regular price so I get an invoice number and then they'll refund the 20% that should have come off. No idea when it will ship, but I'm in line now!

Thank you so much Petrichor, this is entirely because of you! Without your code I wouldn't be getting the game until who knows when, if ever. If it's really never coming to Amazon or Walmart or somewhere else I could cut down the shipping I would have been waiting for probably years until it showed up used somewhere, but that may never even happen since it's so limited.
