Hunt A Killer has announced a partnership with publishing company Simon & Schuster for a new Nancy Drew retail game titled, “Mystery at Magnolia Gardens.” In this all-in-one game, Nancy investigates a poisoning at a botanical garden.
“For more than 90 years, Nancy Drew has been a beloved character and an unmatched crime-stopper,” says Stephanie Voros, vice president and director, subsidiary rights, Simon & Schuster. “Now, thanks to Hunt A Killer’s newest immersive game experience, players get to work with Nancy and solve a dangerous crime.”
With “Mystery at Magnolia Gardens,” all the clues will come in one box and players will use their detective skills to help Nancy Drew solve the mystery. While investigating a potential poisoning at the exhibit, Nancy herself becomes mysteriously ill and it’s up to players to help her solve the case. The game will contain a variety of evidence, including maps, police reports, personal effects from characters and more.
“We are thrilled to partner with Simon & Schuster and are excited to see fans of the Nancy Drew franchise and fans of Hunt A Killer come together to solve this new mystery,” says Ryan Hogan, chief executive officer and co-founder, Hunt A Killer. “As a company, we are constantly growing and expanding more into retail, including with this new partnership. We think this will be a fun experience for our community to solve a case alongside one of the greatest sleuths in history.”
“Mystery at Magnolia Gardens” is available to pre-order on Amazon and is designed for players aged 14 and up. Hunt A Killer plans to release the game on Oct. 15, with further expansion planned for 2022.
