Games of Mystery, your online source for mystery-themed games, parties, and vacations, has updated its website with the latest installment in the award-winning Nancy Drew series of PC games.
We were travelling earlier this month when Nancy Drew 18: The Phantom of Venice was released and missed the opportunity to introduce the game to our readers at that time. In possibly her most exciting adventure yet, players will work to uncover the mastermind behind a series of unsolved thefts that have taken place in Venice -- one of the world's most unique cities known for its interlocking canals and sleek gondolas. The Italian police have asked Nancy Drew for help in unraveling a crime ring that is threatening to steal all of Venice's priceless artifacts. Assuming the role of Nancy, players arrive in Venice during Carnival and begin taking on a series of challenges, including an undercover spy mission for the Italian police. Along the way, players must take advantage of the unique Venetian culture such as learning the language and navigating the transportation system (gondola or walking) to accomplish the mission at hand. As the game progresses, the masked thief becomes bolder and players will need to correctly identify the phantom before he or she goes too far.
Developed by Her Interactive, Nancy Drew: The Phantom of Venice is based on the 78th book in the original series of Nancy Drew mysteries and is rated E for Everyone. Three trailers are available on the Her Interactive website (trailer 1, trailer 2, trailer 3). You may also download Nancy Drew: The Phantom of Venice from the Big Fish games website. The Games of Mystery website has a complete selection of all Nancy Drew games as well as Nancy Drew game strategy guides.
