Traditional Japanese family ryokans (inns) are charming places, but a vengeful ghost is terrifying you and other unsuspecting guests. Is there a shadowy specter haunting the placid inn or is something far more sinister driving away business? Dare to Play

Stop, Just Stop!

This is a great Nancy Drew game. One of my favorites. It is a great game with great graphics and a great storyline. I found it to be genuinely frightening at times. I felt for the characters and their interaction or lack there of was legitimate. The mother's death is a sensitive subject and I feel that the characters came off as fairly human. And their motives seemed solid. On the other hand, I agree that Rentero's puzzles are stupid and unnecessary. But there are several free online strategy guides to avoid the impossible puzzles. I also found Yumi's personality annoying at times. However, her Bento mini-game was my favorite. And think how it's played is pretty self-explaintory. If that's too hard for you to figure out, then puzzle games aren't for you.

I was gripped into both the ghost stories and the story of the mother. I say it's a must buy. It has a little something for everyone, intensive in both puzzle and story. Worth every penny.

nancy drew on mac is super awesome

i have always been a nancy drew fan. i have all nancy drew games but unfortunately every since i switched to Mac, i wasn't able to play the game for a while.
i know i can install windows in my mac but the thought of having windows in my mac is sort of defeating the purpose to me;therefore, i chose not to play unless her interactive decides to make it mac friendly.
i guess my prayer came true 2 games ago. And now it's on Mac App store!
i don't even have to go out to buy the game! i can just install in right at home! how awesome!

Technical difficulties....

I have played almost every other Nancy Drew Game and was excited when i purchased this one. Although I love a good challange, the only challange this game has given me is a technical one. Upon purchasing this game and installing it I found out the text of the dialogue/phone calls/settings etc is not working for me. This has never happened before with any other game. This is the first time i have!played a Nancy Drew on a Mac. Has anyone else had this problem or does anyone know how to fix it? There is not much game play i can do without this aspect of the game.
