Win 'Nancy Drew: Shadow at the Water's Edge'!

Nancy Drew: Shadow at the Water's Edge is the 23rd release in Her Interactive's popular single player Nancy Drew mystery game series.

Compatible with both PC and Macintosh computer platforms, 'Shadow at the Water's Edge' finds Nancy and pals Bess and George investigating the haunting of a traditional inn in Kyoto, Japan.

Along the way she and players of the game find that things are not quite what they seem.

Additional features include immersion via the game into elements of Japanese culture, the ability to use in-game cell phone technology in sleuthing, two difficulty levels and more.

Story and Gameplay:
Traditional Japanese family ryokans (inns) are usually charming places, but one such place in the ancient and one-time Imperial capital city of Kyoto is proving to be far from that. Run by the Shimizu family, this ryokan is said to be haunted by a vengeful ghost that is terrifying the unsuspecting guests.

Visiting Japan with her best friends, Bess Marvin and George Fayne, as a reward for previous sleuthing duties, Nancy Drew hears of these strange happenings and takes it on herself to dig into this paranormal mystery. Along with the rumor of a ghost she also finds a family torn by a recent death, two sisters with very different attitudes toward the family business, a grandmother firmly rooted in traditional Japanese culture, and more.

Is there a shadowy specter haunting the placid inn or is something far more sinister driving away business? Nancy and you are on the case.

Gameplay features include point and click movement throughout the game, puzzle-solving, interrogation of characters, Junior or Senior Detective difficulty levels, immersion into aspects of Japanese culture including origami, tea ceremonies and calligraphy, and in-game cell phone functionality that includes photography and the ability to create anime style avatars representing characters.
