Since 1998 when the first game was released, HeR Interactive has inspired bookworms, gamers, and puzzle solvers to get their sleuth on while slaying the gender stereotypes often associated with the often male-dominated gaming community. Their goal is to “create an environment that fosters excellence through the art of creative collaboration.” Nancy Drew is just the ticket. If there ever was a smart and sassy heroine who’s not afraid to put the team on her back to solve a case, it’s Nancy Drew.
