They want to make the transition to tablets and smartphones, as many developers have been doing for smaller games. However, they need some extra funding, and Her Interactive evidently think that crowdfunding is the route to go down here.
They launched a Kickstarter campaign yesterday and are already well on their way to raising the cash they need with $3,000 of $250,000 down in less than 24 hours. They’ve announced that the campaign will run until Sept 11th, so there’s still more than a month to go to raise the rest of the money they need.
“Reaching a larger audience means that we can invest more in each Nancy Drew game,” the company says. “So everyone benefits from this move, whether you play our games on your PC, your Mac or a mobile device. But to port Nancy Drew games to tablets and smartphones, we need to raise some funds. That’s where you come in.”
The Tomb of the Lost Queen title is one of the best-selling Nancy Drew novels, and has some great reviews for it’s PC/Mac version, but will it hold up as a tablet/smartphone game?
