Is anybody else replaying all the games before Labyrinth of Lies?

I mean, if you think about it, this person is kind of an amateur at being threatening.

Subject: Carousels
Appeared In: The Haunted Carousel

It would be a poor game indeed to not talk about the thing that’s in the title.  Luckily for us, HER Interactive doesn’t make poor games, so we got a nice chunk of information about carousels throughout the game. This isn’t even everything you can read about it, but the band organ will get its own post some other day.

  • Besides carousel and merry-go-round, they’re also called: roundabouts and galopers (England), manèges de chevaux de bois (France), karussell (Germany), whirligigs, flying horses, and hobby horses (America).
  • During the the “golden age” of carousels (1895-1920), anywhere from 2,000 - 6,000 carousels were built. Roughly 200 have made it to present day.
  • The oldest one in America is located in Massachusetts, called the Flying Horses.
  • To get people on the rides, customers were told merry-go-rounds were doctor recommended as a good way to circulate the blood.
  • The horses on the outside of the ride go faster than the others. This is because they have to cover more distance.
  • The word carousel is derived from carosello. The name is Italian (“little war”). The definition is Middle Eastern, referring to a game played by tossing easily breakable balls between two riders. When the ball hit a player, it broke open and covered them in perfume.
  • If you’ve ever been to Disneyland you know they have an impressive carousel named King Arthur. It’s right in the center of the park, a nod to Walt Disney getting the idea from watching his children ride one in the park. Every horse on the carousel is over a century old, and cast members spend at least six hours polishing the ride per night.

Hooray!!! 

For those of you who have not yet submitted your type, feel free to reblog and I’ll add you to the categories. Also note that I am still waiting on differencedetective for interpretation on the first ten games so I’ll repost when we have that.

Would it be helpful for me to make separate columns for each of the games? I was trying to condense it down to a viewable page size. 

Thanks for humoring me!!

INTP same as iconic Wade Thornton and Alexei Markovic ;)

Oh my god I love these. I’m INTJ just like Kit Foley who I am also in love with oops

HER Interactive removed it’s rule banning discussion of LGBT topics.
You guys have no idea how happy I am about this. It’s only been about a week since we all emailed HER and they’ve already listened to us and eliminated the rule! It really shows that we can make a change if we stand up for what we believe in

thanks kennethparcelll for jumpstarting all of this!

HER Interactive bans users from discussing LGBT topics on their message boards

I’ve been a big fan of the Nancy Drew games made by HER Interactive since I was in 5th grade. But the other day, I was appalled when I saw the above image on their message boards. Their guidelines strictly forbid its users from discussing LGBT topics on their message boards. And to make matters worse, users who do mention anything about characters being gay even in G rated way are banned from the site. While I understand forbidding sexual content in order to maintain an E rating, discussion of LGBT should not be considered inappropriate. Fans of the games should be able to discuss whatever pairings they want, not just ones that are heterosexual. HER Interactive needs to quit being small-minded and dispose of this rule immediately.

I urge you all to please email HER Interactive at feedback@herinteractive.com and ask that they eliminate this outdated guideline.
