So we've got something special lined up for Thursday (tomorrow.) It is often the news nexus of our week. And though you may hazard a guess, I can guarantee that it isn't the aforementioned (yesterday) newsletter. I will hint that it is something you're simply going to love. Maybe I left a clue around here somewheres...
. . . .
So yeah, tomorrow, stop by... oh, and dress for success. ^.~

from the Amateur Sleuth blog.

I believe this means that the mini game for Shadow's at the Water's Edge will be released tomorrow, because HeR has hinted that the mini game is about fashion. It will be interesting to see what the surprise is!

I'm really excited! WOOT, only 1 cd!

I might actually get this, it looks so awesome! Although, I think Hulk looks like a ... weirdo. Eh. Well, I guess that's not far off from reality, is it?

Sorry for the delay. The message board is gone, we'll have to make a new one soon.

TOT Demo

I. Loved. It!

This has got to be a great game, in full version. I'm a pretty picky gamer, so it takes a lot to impress me.

After the release of the TOT demo by HerInteractive today, I must say that I want to play it, AGAIN. I even loved trapping the mice! (wow, can't believe I just said that... grossness!) Aaaaannnnd the Land Rush game was a lot more fun in the game!

Anywho, go download it! Try it!

TOT Special Edition!

Apparently, HeR is having a special where if you pre-order TOT by June 16th, you will recieve a special edition! It doesn't look like there will be any major changes in the game, just a few extras. Observe: [taken directly from the Dare to Play blog]

- More Pa Pennies that you'll be able to find around the homestead to purchase candy from the local store which has new candy from the makers for KoKo Kringles. This is similar to the coin system in the the Phantom of Venice. In the normal version, you will only be able to get more Pa Pennies by playing Land Rush (get some more practice playing the free minigame on our website if you don't plan on preordering) or fixing circuit boards.
- Extra Sassy Detective award - there will be 13 stars on the badge instead of the usual 12.
- Extra outtakes - if you achieve all 13 Sassy Detective awards, there are 2 extra outtakes at the end of the game.

The one about there being extra Pa Pennies sounds extremely helpful. That Land Rush game is hard! There is no extra cost besides shipping & handling:

- you must preorder by 6/16 on
- it can be either the digital download or the boxed game
- there is no additional cost
- the Special Edition will be available for both PC and Mac platforms
- the Special Edition cannot be purchased in stores.

Just something extra for those who are pre-ordering :)

The monthly newsletter was released today, with plenty of dates!

Digital and Boxed Pre-Orders Start: June 1st
Boxed Pre-Orders Shipped: Week of June 16th
Available at Retail Stores: June 29th
Digital Download Available: June 29th

For a screenshot of the newsletter, clicketh here! Apparently, anyone who pre-orders before June 16th will recieve a special edition version of the game.
There is also a new "Blurb of the Week" on the Amateur Sleuth blog from the Art Directer, Kyle:

I’ve been helping manage bugs [errors] and fixes to puzzles and art for ND23. I’ve also got my own art environments to work on. I’m responsible for texturing a few key small environments that transition between major ones. Because our games are heavily laced with thematic elements, it’s important for me to make sure the lighting for these scenes reflect the transitions correctly, not just in terms of setting but also mood. I also handle a lot of boring, ‘paper-worky’ stuff… Yeah, that’s the technical term.
Yup yup, kewl stuff. :)

Her Interactive

Her Interactive 'Storm Chaser Pete'

Meet Pete! He's the intern for the Canute Storm Chaser team and he will be blogging his experiences every day starting today through June 30! Read his blog at for the latest updates.

Pete doesn't have a lot of experience chasing storms, but he's dreamed about this exciting adventure since was a kid. Securing a summer internship as a storm chaser is definitely the opportunity of a lifetime! Although Pete's enthusiastic about chasing storms, there's a lot of behind the scenes work he has to do before he's ready for the real thing. From getting coffee for the team in the morning to driving the Doppler truck, Pete has quite few adventures and misadventures along the way. Make sure you check the Storm Chaser Pete blog every day for a new post!
