SPY Box Art Revealed!

Yesterday Her Interactive revealed the SPY box art!

Defuse a Toxic Plot and Reveal the Truth Behind Kate Drew's Death!

New look! Also, tumblr!

The blog has gotten a makeover! What do you think? I tried to go with classic Nancy for the theme. I think it looks a lot nicer!

Also, I've made a tumblr to go hand in hand with this blog. It doesn't have much as of right now, but I will start working on it!

Puzzle Solution

I didn't have time to personally solve this week's puzzle but I still have the solution for you guys!

{"Covert the keyboard characters ^, !), !#, @, !, !, !), $ into [their respective numbers on the keyboard]. Which is [6, 10, 13, 2, 1, 1, 10, 4]. Then go back to the blog posts on the given dates, and find the hidden [messages]. Next, count [that many letters in the secret m3essage to get your final letters].

The final word from searching the blog is this [REVENANT]."}

Weekend Puzzle Solution

When I saw the flags, the first thing I thought of was DDI. So the flags must represent letters!
Getting the answer was very easy.

Answer: NOT WHO

What does this mean? It's regarding SPY so... hmm, speculations...

The Silent Spy: Release dates!

*Squeals and runs in circles*
And it has begun! The waiting, the fangirling, the flailing about.
In preparation for SPY, I will be reading and reviewing The Clue of the Whistling Bagpipes. Sounds appropriate, right?
What will you guys be doing in preparation for SPY?

I'm Still Here!

Hello fellow sleuths! 

I apologize for the insane lack of posts. There are several reasons for that.
1. School. Things were really crazy in April and May, but I've graduated so no more school for me!
2. The Attic. I've been spending a lot of time getting my review blog back up and running so Nancy hasn't been getting a lot of attention from me lately.

That being said, expect to see many more posts here soon. I'm trying to come up with a post schedule. I post every single day on The Attic, but I was thinking maybe three days a week on here. I hopefully will be posting book reviews and of course game reviews. I'll be getting back into the weekend puzzles and reading more Nancy since I've worked out a reading schedule that will work on both fronts. 

So, in other news, game #29, The Silent Spy, will be coming out soon! In fact, over on the Amateur Sleuth blog, they said that something pertaining to SPY will be announced today. What will it be? 

Happy sleuthing!
