Fatal ErrorsEdit

As in all Nancy Drew games, if the player makes a fatal error, the game will offer a second chance, and the game will reset to the point right before the error was made. Here are the different ways to get fired/die in this game.

  • Entering three incorrect combinations into Aunt Eloise's safe.
  • Setting off the soda machine alarm when Connie is there.
  • Not fixing the boiler in time and getting blown up.
  • Taking the bolt cutters from Maxine's without replacing it with the ladle and setting the diner on fire.
  • Failing to trap the culprit in the end and getting pistol-whipped.


The game was released as pre-order on August 11, 2010. It was released in stores and online on August 24, 2010.
