Nancy Drew: Alibi in Ashes

Preorders begin next Monday (Sept. 26) for Nancy Drew adventure game #25, Nancy Drew: Alibi in Ashes. In the latest instalment of Her Interactive’s popular point-and-click franchise, Nancy returns to her hometown of River Heights for a much-needed break, however she’s framed for arson after the townhall burns down shortly after she arrives.

With the help of her friends, Bess and George, and her boyfriend, Ned, Nancy investigates the mystery of the fire to try to clear her name – and discovers that the town is hiding a much darker secret.

In Alibi in Ashes you’ll get to play as four different characters: Bess, George, Ned, and of course Nancy herself. The answer you’ll receive from suspects will vary depending on which character is asking the questions. In addition to searching for clues and talking to townspeople, you’ll also use police forensics to identify fingerpritns at the local police lab.

Will Nancy and Ned’s relationship finally blossom? You’ll have to play the game to find out.

Pre-orders begin on Sept. 26 at HerInteractive.com, and the game will launch Oct. 18.
